   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Appearance: gilded orange sparkling in the sunlight with a touch of haze. Not a gusher but still very active and vibrant under a full creamy head of white. Swirls with lace.
Nose: lemon peel and lemon oils, key lime peel and key lime oils. Freshly peeled tangerines. Pulpy in the back with hints of pith and dry stringy endocarp. White pepper tickles along the edges and in the back.
Palate: lemon, white pepper, and Indian spices. Bitter rind along the edges and in the finish, lingering atop my tongue creating a thirst for more. Flavor forward with a decent chill and as it warms up, the flavor focus shifts to the back of each swallow. Earthen and musky – of the orchard in bloom.
Final Thoughts: not nearly as complex or refreshing as the grapefruit wood in the Dos Costas Oeste series from Cigar City Brewing. Good and drinkable but not very memorable.

peteinSD (1281) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle. Clear caramel pour with no head. Thick sweet malt and spices with citrus in the aroma. Taste is dull sweet malt with light citrus. Coating mouthfeel. Did not care for this one.

TBone (11926) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Bottled@CBC2013 Hazy yellow color, small white head. Fruity, lemony aroma. Medium-bodied. Citric, slightly tart but very fruity flavor. Lemon, maybe apricot. Very nice dessert Belgian.

Lukaduke (1751) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours a hazy orange golden color with three plus fingers off fizzy tight bubble foam. Nose is ripe and inviting with lots of lemony zest and field grain with some yeast esters and honeyed sweetness. On the palate it is less appealing with a lot of sweet fizzy notes of honey malt, some warm spice, pepper and more lemon tang... a bit sticky and heavy, almost bordering on a lemon dubbel rather than a saison. Weird.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2013
Bottled@SBWF2013. Yellowish golden colour with some slight haze and a small white head. Aroma is lemongrass, some spices, herbs and quite strong on the citrusy side. Flavour is lemongrass, citrus, some floral notes along with mild spices and herbs. Balanced, but then again a rather American influenced Saison.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Sample at SBWF 2013. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of wood, lemon, light funk, soap and light spices. Refreshing and easy to drink. A nice one.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by Keir- thanks again, Keir! Pours a cloudy gold with a moderate white head, slightly smaller than the Cedar. Also gushed, but not as much as the Cedar did. Aroma of wood chips, sweet malts, lemon, apricot, dough, and herbs. Flavor of lemon citrus, soap, florals, wood, and herbs. Light-medium bodied, with a fresh, woody mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Another winner in this series.

10/VIII/13 - 75cl bottle @ RBBSG II, my place - bottled: XII/2011 (2013-716) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy orange beer, small off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, passion fruit, sugary, dairy, some overripe fruits, banana, ginger, bit funky. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very fruity start, ginger, orange peel, lemony, overripe banana. Aftertaste: little bitter, orange marmalade, funky, bit weird.
