GT2 (8178) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
330mL from Monk’s Cafe in Stockholm. The pour is a flat, hazy orange. No head formation. Aroma is heavy malt, wort, biere de garde. Taste is syrupy, sweet, malty. Palate is sugar water. No fermentation? This batch definitely did not attenuate.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2011
In short: A somewhat lifeless sugary sweet and spicy Belgian blonde ale. Bland and not much of a Saison
How: Tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal
The look: Cloudy blonde-orange body with almost no head
In long: Nose is mostly fruit esters (oranges, peaches, bananas) and witbier style of spices over a very sweet malt base. Taste is dominated by sweet sugary malts that taste like a honeyed pie crust. Also dried fruits and spicies. Body is a bit slimy and carbonation is lacking. The advertised 10% is not bothersome. There’s nothing rustic or even remotely Saison in this beer. Far from well attenuated. This is just another generic strong sweet Belgian blonde ale. Those special rare De Molen taps were very expensive at Vices & Versa, and I’m notoriously cheap. So I spotted a well groomed man who was giving generous tips, I told him to check me out and I did a little tap dance number in front of him. Not only did he not give me any money but he seemed totally offended. Damn stuck-up paraplegic.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2011
A hazy orange amber saison with reddish hues, and a thin lacing white head. In aroma, restrained fruity esters with orange pulp, curacao, very smooth. In mouth, a smooth herbaceous malt with coriander, a bit of curacao, some apple skins, nice alcohol finale. Quite nice. On tap at Vices et versa, 1 year old keg, Feb. 13 2011.

Enjoyit (3447) - Vadum, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2010
Clear orange of color - no head. An aroma of caramel, spice and orange. A flavor of malt, spice, sweets and alcohol in the finish.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2010
Flaske 0,33l. Brygget 28 Mar 09. Gyldenbrunt. Høyt luftig skum som lager filigranser på glasset. Fruktig & svakt syrlig smak. Bakteppe av marsipan & mandeldråper. Ettersmaken er svakt syrlig men den blir i søteste laget. Masse bunnfall.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2010
Muddy brick color, no carbonation to speak of. Oily. Peachy aroma, some funk and fruit, some stable, alcohol warming. A little more carbonation, a little more barnyard would have given great scores.

pivnizub (8737) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured, cloudy, lots of UFO’s visible, small lacy off-white head; complex nose: vanilla, wood, sweet dark malt and traces of alcohol; moderate to robust sweet flavour, medium to full bodied; solid sweet finish with fruits and malt. Too sweet and heavy.......

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, murky golden to amber colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Sweet (cara-)malty aroma with notes of baking yeast, dates, dried figs, lemon, vanilla and traces of alcohol. Sweet flavour, full bodied with a very smooth carbonation. Slightly oily malty and syrupy taste with fruity and yeasty accents; syrupy sweet malty and moderately fruity finish with shy spicy notes and traces of alcohol. Too sweet and oily for my liking. 25.XIII.10

Tommaso (20) - ITALY - AUG 19, 2010
Color ambrato scarico. poca schiuma e poca carbonazione, il naso è interessante con note fruttate e di spezie evidenti, il corpo è stucchevole, molto dolce e poco beverina.

bogus (97) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2010
Golden orange colour. Fruity nose with hints of caramel. Sweet caramelly taste with lots of fruits and a bit too heavy alcohol taste. Quite good.
