DutchMark (134) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Very strong for a saison. I had bottle no. 101 from 2009. Almost no head but good prickly soft carbonation. Murky orange colour. Texture is oily creamy. Flavor is not very subtle. Honey sweet, citrus fruits, caramel, yeast and some bitter hops. It is not boozy but it is a heavy strong beer. Not a saison to me. It should be a summer beer. This is more something for a cold winter evening. Still tasty.

laiti (5573) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2014
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Amsterdam. Batch #64: brewed 28.03.2009, bottled 09.06.2009, BBE 09.06.2014
Aroma has strong apricot and toffee notes typical to aged Belgian ales. And quite nothing else. Flavour has the same elements, but even more intensive. Also some stinging alcohol and peppery spices. No signs of saison here, just a well aged strong Belgian blonde. Well preserved, I must say. Reminds me a lot of some Belgian strong ales I’ve aged myself in my cellar. Perhaps La Chouffe is the closest one.

gEUS (1001) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle 249 - 750 ml at home. Pours clear orange with a small head. Sweet peppery nose, slight citrus. Sweet, rather full body, peppery finish. A-typical saison, especially due to the sweetness.

sic1314 (3119) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle 324. Poured a murky medium amber, off white head. Aroma of musty fruit. Medium to full body, flavour is sweet berries. Nice, but not a saison by any stretch.

larsniclas (5564) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2014
Bottled from Bierkoning. #1001, June 2009 Murky orange with almost no head. Yeasty, malty, sweet with liquorice and sweet, dried fruits; raisins, figs, dates. Slightly vinous. Complex flavour with oak-notes.

Idiosynkrasie (3639) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2013
330ml bottle [#785, 06/2009]. Cloudy amber colour with average, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity and grainy aroma, sweet-ish, hoppy overtones, a dusty, yeasty touch, more Belgian Strong than Saison-like character. Taste is sweet-ish, alcoholic, grainy, dusty, unspecific fruity, a honey touch, bitter finish.

Inbreak (1897) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 21.10.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Small mediumlasting head. Aroma is hay, yeast, dough, thinner, wet grain, cereal, almond cake. Taste is very sweet, sugar, almond cake, dough, yeast, wet grain, caramel, hay, honey, harsh grass. Little bitterness, very thin mouthfeel. I can’t believe this has ever been even close to a saison, and it has most certainly passed it’s glory days long time ago.

Cuso (4298) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 30, 2013

Vignale (2004) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2013
2009 vintageflaska från beernavigator. Disig, orangebrun med medelhögt skum. Sötsyrlig murrig doft som liknar äppeljuice, med kryddiga inslag av kanel och ingefära. Söt, viss alkohol slår igenom, söt frukt, citron zest, jäst, besk jordig eftesmak. Känns rå och obalanserad, vilket är anmärkningsvärt då den är 4 år gammal. Ett öl jag inte riktigt förstår poängen med.

lusikka (6069) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2013
330 ml bottle. Vintage 2009. Rated on 26.2.2013.
Pours a murky orange colour with a white head. Aroma of strong tangy spiciness, citrus and lemon zest. Some glue-like elements. Flavour of strong sweet malts, caramel, yeast, spices and a lot of alcohol. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and low carbonation. Burning alcohol finish with some spiciness. Interesting to try but far from being enjoyable.
