phredrik (999) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - APR 17, 2012
33 cl bottle from ØlKonsortiet. Pours clear amber with a small soapy head that dies out quickly. The aroma is first off some spicy saison yeast, flowers and peppercorns, cantaloupy esters, orange peel, a bit of hay-ish farmhouse in the far back - overall very nice, sweet fruits and flowers up front. Taste is moderately yeast forward with estery fruitiness and orange notes, cereal and corn impressions from the malt and a bit of hoppy bitterness to round it off. Notes of cantaloupe, tangerine, candyfloss and a citrusy tartness in the far back. It doesn’t feel as heavy as 7,5% alcohol. Very carbonated as it should be, but the body follows through and makes the palate soft, easy-going and enjoyable. A solid, well-made, somewhat Americanized saison from one of my all-time favourite breweries.

yngwie (12608) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. A quite dark golden colored saison, semi transparent and topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is mostly on the hoppy, citrusy and piney side. A bit sweetish on the nose and palate I think, at least for a saison. Some peppery notes, a pleasant bitterness, some pine cones and resins and some maltyness. Semi-sweet, nicely carbonated and medium bodied. Bitterness towards the end. A decent beer, but I think it’s too sweet. 120405

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2012
(Draught at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of caramel, orange peel, red fruit and a touch of strawberries. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, red fruit, blood orange and a generous bitterness with both citric and earthy hops. Fairly spicy finish, drier than expected. More than medium body. Interesting saison variation with some IPA leanings. Nice one.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
On tap at De Molen pouring sort of initially hazy with copper body and light tan head and then it cleared up after a while. The aroma is on the herbally side and then hits you with biscuit malts and sort of yeasty notes. Hmm. The taste is similar with nearly bright notes of lemon and lime and then moving into some biscuit and a bit of yeastiness. This is tasting very nice fresh from the source with tons of flavor.
