daje (1858) - 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.

kraddel (2431) - 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 (2630) - 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)

abemorsten (2491) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2013
33 cl bottle from the brewery outlet enjoyed at home. Pours a misty sparkling orange body with a huge beige head that lingers and leaves excellent lacing as it finally diminishes. Orange zest notes give way to more yeasty notes of a summer warm old wooden cupboard on the nose. Crisp and spicy, acidic even, followed by a heavy but refreshing bitterness. Full bodied. Heavy carbonation. The orange zest fumes from the fresh pours stand out as a dominant character in the aftertaste.

Lukaduke (1737) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Draft at Novare. Pours a light golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. The nose is grassy with touches of earthy yeast and spice. The palate is clean but overly bitter for a saison. Nice light body with good estery fruit and rustic yeast but and overly bitter almost astringent mid to late palate sucks all the softness out of the beer.

Nez de houblon herbeux aux notes florales, de levures fruitées (agrumes, notes de mangues) aux notes épicées (poivre doux), moyen de malt sucré, léger de caramel doux avec des notes de pain. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyen goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, traces d’abricots) et moyennement épicées (poivre doux) avec une légère amertume de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales sucrées avec un léger goût de caramel doux et de pain puis en finale l’amertume de houblon s’intensifie en affichant un caractère plus asséchant et plus herbeux. Post-goût moyen et légèrement sec, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales avec un léger goût de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) et épicées. (10 avril 2013)
