gnoff (7415) - Mölndal, - FEB 14, 2013
Draught at Tre Små Rum, Göteborg, on February 13, 2013.
Hazy to cloudy dark copper to brown color, dense tan head. Light acidic, spicy, hay, herbal, somewhat lactic scent. Sweet, alcohol, herbal, bitter, green flower stems/stalks taste. Bitter floral aftertaste. Warming alcohol. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Decent, though a bit too evident alcohol, and also the bitterness and sort of green floral notes does not go super well with my taste.

Maakun (319) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2014
Slightly hazy reddish brown with big foamy off-white head. Fruity at first (peach), then goes into light sweet grains, some nuts, caramel and spices. Then more sour with some citrus and alcohol, and finishes bitter with vegetal notes (chicory). Medium bodied, nice full carbonation. Loverly stuff, but slightly too bitter which doesn’t to too well with the sourness for me.

Garrold (732) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Tap at North Bar, Leeds. Clear copper colour. Thin, filmy, white head. Burnt caramel. Thick, syrupy fruit. Some freshness by way of a hint of cut grass. Taste is thick sweetness, cut through by a sharp, unripe cherry, light bitterness. Chewy palate. Not at all what I was expecting. Enjoyed it, mind.

Hazy amber, huge white head. Loads of caramel and light bitterness, work well together.

Bamsen78 (2409) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Gusher. Pours clear golden with profound, stable off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, with notes of hops. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and fruit, with bitter, hoppy notes. Sticky. Sweet afteraste. Good but boozy, and s this really a Saison?

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 8.5%. Caramelly aroma. Cloudy amber colour. Very big stable off-white head. The flavour is also caramelly, and very much so. Fruity sweetness. OK bitterness to balance. A caramel bomb as far as I see it, but not bad at that.

Scottishchris (116) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours murky brown with very thin head. Loads of malt and yeast on the nose. Sweet and sticky thick body. Fruity but lacks the spice I'd expect.

kbudd19 (392) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
Dark amber pour, nice head, weird sour aroma, malts, hops, not really what you’d expect form a saison. Sour, a bit boozy, semi bitter finish, pretty much the first beer from these guys that I haven’t enjoyed, might be an infected bottle give the sourness.

c0fein (107) - FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
330ml bottle @ home. From Saveur Biere.

Doesn’t feel any freshness, looks too dark and tastes like old wool sock. I think that this is ruined.

AgentAle (401) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
Aroma of citrus hops and clove. Fruity flavors with slight alcohol kick. Some belgium sugar on tip and finishes bitter. Appearance is a dark cloudy orange/amber body with pearl white head that fades pretty quockly

Bruine kleur, troebel, amper schuim. Weinig aroma. Smakt super, beetje zoet, redelijk bitter.
