czar (5568) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
pours hazy bright golden with a towering foamy white head, excellent retention and lacing. breadied malts, citrus, yet very herbal, spicy, floral, yeasty, light pepper, oranges, light vanilla. hint of sweetness - tad too malty. lively, medium body - oily, very nice short but fairly present citrusy finish - the kind that makes want another sip right away! charlevoix’s lupulus feeling here, hop-wise. just WOW.

egajdzis (5550) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Lightly hazy, dark golden color with a small white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of cloves, phenols, some hay, light spices, honey, and light alcohol. Taste of sweeter honey, some clove, hay, light spices, and a slightly sweet finish.

77ships (5248) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2013
Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Rating the same version as sebletitje, I assume that this is the correct entry. Clear (sigh) golden with a white head. Smells sweet, sugary, cereal and some light grass. Sweet taste, white bread malt, sweet cornflakes with white sugar, grains, bitter hay and bitter floral and grass finish. Uber-simple, sweet and almost macro-fare styled. Light & fizzy, I didn’t care at all for this one & too much stuff like white sugar cornflakes in here. No idea what happened here, I think that I like saison’s & the ratings are very good here. Maybe a bad keg? Worn by travel? Or I am just not getting it. (Thx! for sharing people!)

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Draft at mondial. Hazy honey gold, luscious head and lace. Aroma is floral, spritzy, and light. Orange blossom. Balanced--floral without being perfumed, fresh and friendly bitterness. Light, cheerful, solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (5173) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Wonderful. Pours with a big frothy head. Lots of lacing, cloudy blond. Smell has hay-like yeast and a little orange peel. Taste has citrus and bitterness. Soft carbonation. A faint sugary sweetness. Big bottle from Peluso.

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma consists of fruity ester with nice solid rustic Belgian malt backbone. Taste is also a great mix between some rustic malt notes with floral undertones and semi-sweet rustic Belgian malt. Light peppery and yeasty finish. Body is about average with great carbonation. Well done with good level of drinkability and great work on the fruity ester originating from the yeast strain.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
Big bottle. I thought this was really good. Not jus Saoson funk but stronger malt than usual and a hint of caramel underneath a beer with strong "typical" Sason qualities.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Idiosynkrasie (4815) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2014
750ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Typical Saison aroma in mild fulfilment, cautious fruity notes, a very cautious touch of smoke, herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is rather similar; soft palate, soft carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Though very mild and soft a superbly balanced, multifaceted and "ample" Saison.
