mjs (4604) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2012
(Bottle, 0.33 l - bottled 13.1.2012, courtesy of rosenbergh, 20120721) The beer poured deep amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had spices, hops and yeast. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were spices, yeast, hops, sourness, malts, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy, fruity, sour and bitter. A tasty but a bit musty saison.

berlinoise2go (615) - NORWAY - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Hazy amber colour. Inch-thick fluffy offwhite head, good retention, leaves some lacing. Hoppy/fruity/spicy aroma with citrus, honey, pine, overripe pears, coriander seeds. Taste is nicely balanced, fruity-sweet and bitter - a bit like a mix between bitter ale and hefeweizen. Lively carbonation, medium body. Spicy-bitter aftertaste.

LarsEngen (363) - Sandvika, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2012
0,33 Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika @ home. Brewed 16/1-12. Pours deep orange with a one finger light brown head. Nice fresh and fruity aroma. Some alcohol notes also to the nose. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. The alcohol is first very well hidden but after a while there is a nice warm aftertaste. lively carbonation. Good one.

lefossoyeur (453) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
Copper golden topped by a small but lasting white head. Pleasant fruity nose backed by sour malty note. Light to medium body, pleasantly fruity, quite simple but nicely refreshing. Finishes on a light fruity, doughy aftertaste. Not a typical saison but enjoyble one.

yiannnos (867) - , CYPRUS - JUL 6, 2012
Hazy amber colour. Sweet, caramel, with some herbal spicy notes, missing that saison funk.

GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUL 5, 2012
Botella de 330ml. Vaso de ˝ Pinta. Saboreada en jul´12. Color dorado pálido y apariencia algo velada. En nariz aromas de malta Crystal, trazos de pan y toque terroso y picante. Textura y sabor de trigo al primer sorbo seguido de notas levemente cítricas y sutilmente afrutadas. En el temprano intermedio se muestra un amargor intenso que deja un paladar áspero y picante. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Una cerveza donde los lúpulos juegan un importante papael tanto en aromas como sabores y preponderan sobre las maltas. El final es largo, astringente y cítrico. Estilo Saison pero próxima a los límites. Una cerveza compleja que vale la pena probar. 330ml bottle. ˝ Pint glass. Enjoyed on jul´12. Pale golden in color, chill hazy look. Froth is white, creamy & shows good retention. Crystal malt aroma, bready hues, earthy & spicy touch to the nose. Wheat texture & flavor at first sip followed by slightly citric & subtle fruity notes. Strong bitterness is shown in the early middle leaving a earthy & spicy palate. Medium body, moderate carbonation. A beer where hops play an important role both in flavor & aroma while overwhelm malts. Long astringent & citric finish. Saison-style but close to the border line. Complex beer worth to try

MiP (13598) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle, 7.5%. Teaish and caramelly hop aroma. Hazy amber colour. Big stable tan head. The flavour is has a spicy hop note with some caramelly malt and a bit of alcohol. Does not taste 7.5% to me. Seems sweet to begin with, but turns out not to be. High carbonation.
