Bottle at the Croydonia Tasting - East Croydon. Thanks to Jack for the De Molen. Pours clearish, amber-gold with a creamy tan head. Ripe citrus on the snout, some dough, orange. Medium sweet flavor with more citrus, orange merengue. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Ripe citrus fruits to finish, mild pale bread. Decent stuff.

Holmen1 (2377) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2013
Flaske fra Kihoskh, på hytta: etter dagens cykeltur t/r Louisiana (7 mil) var deete en effektiv restituering av kropp&sjel (kunne vært en De Molen-etikett!). Flott såpeskum, kobberrød, uklar. Syrlig, på grensen til sur, godt forfriskende og næringsinnholdet gjør sin virkning...

daje (2254) - NORWAY - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle, may 10th 2013. Dark orange body, medium white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, peach and pears. Fruity taste, very hoppy, with peppery tones from the yeast. This works very well. Lasting pepper and orange taste, an interesting take on a saison.

Inbreak (2033) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 08.06.2013, 0,33l bottle sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is fruity and slightly sour, sour berries, yeast, grapefruit, dried fruits, hay, citrus peel, grass. Taste is slightly harsh yeasty, grass, hay, yeast, citrus peel, light malts, hint of dried fruits. Medium bitterness, a little watery mouthfeel. Probably way over the top.

kraddel (3003) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2013
bottle at home. pours lighter orange, good white foam. big hoppy smell , though this is almost 1,5 year old... bitter as well, i do get the saison-ish parts, but way less than ’ feared’ to high carbo ( sigh ) realy dry ( sugary ) taste, grains, saison-yeast old plants is what comes to mind .. an almost ’rotting , vegetable kinda thing) . and believe me , comming from an extremely anti-vegetable, saison hating guy, it does sound far worse than it actualy is. it pretty drinkable, but not by far something i’d go crazy over...

Martinus (2798) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2013
Somewhat hazy orange golden colour, firm cream head. Aroma of hay, pineapple, malts, white pepper, grapefruit peel, woodruff and herbs. Malty flavour, fresh, light sour, wood, light bitter. Yeasty finish, wood, light astringent, quite dry. Lots of yeast, light subdued banana, bit medicinal.
Quite OK.
(From 33cL bottle @ home. Thanks to my secret sinterklaas)
