MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2015
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a huge off-white foamy head. Yeasty aroma with notes of ripe peaches, citrus, backed by slightly buttery, bready cara-malt. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter and slightly sour-tart flavour, medium to full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Fruit-accented, surprisingly moderate malty base with hints of caramel, tropic fruits and yeasty spice; a mildly but well-embedded hoppy bitterness joins in towards the finish. Likeable. 12.V.15

The kind of beer style, the producers, I thought that beer would be overwhelming without cheating. On the other hand, De Molen has many beers in their catalog and mass experiments that do not lead to anything. I have not understood this beer a saison? Perhaps, but with some shortcomings very clear.

Zlotta (2255) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled on 19/9/2013. Clear, medium amber with a massive (a little gusher), foamy, stable, tan to white head. Intense aroma of peach and apricot, tangerine, banana, lemon and a bit of pepper and alcohol. Lovely, sweetish taste of apricot and peach, mango, tangerine and banana, followed by a long, yeasty, slightly spicy (pepper and cinnamon), gently alcoholic and rather bitter and dry finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very aromatic and tasty, delicious. Maybe a bit too much on the sweet side and a little too dry in the end, but still well-balanced.

Gerbeer (3156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a copper/Amber with huge head. Aromas of caramel, sweet malts and light Belgisn yeast. Flavors follow same with additional doughy malts and raisiny fruit. Very malty for a "saison" but an incredibly smooth and creamy, tasty beer.
