JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2013
Very dense, lightly yellowish head as whipped eggwhite over veiled orangey-golden beer, well carbonated. "Hot" malts, yeast byproducts, quite sharp. Wheat and other grains, spicy-citrussy aromas. Sourish, sharp flavour with yeasty and meaty esters & byproducts. Mandarine Napoléon without the sugar and syrup. In the background, something as thick buttermilk, if you will forgive me the paradox. Sharp MF, very carbonated to fizzy; light to medium bodied with a bit of wheatslickness. A saison seen through foreign, rather American glasses.

Bottle. Pours yellow orange with white head. Nose and taste of yeast, white sugar, coriander, lemongrass, hay, banana and bready malt. Medium body. More of a wheat than a saison in my opinion.

330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Messy yeasty aroma, even though I poured it almost entirely clear. Head was brief. It becomes obvious why in the taste - as it’s positively humming with saison grunge. And upon swallowing there’s an alcoholic and acidic kick. A bit fizzy palate. Rough. Eww. I’m sick of messy saisons. Each one makes me more annoyed than the previous.

Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
Plain and boring. Especially if you’re familiar with "De Molen" beers this flavor profile really starts to annoy because they have 50+ beers or so, and maybe 5 can be called great and original, most of them don’t add anything to their selection, like this one.

Marduk (6437) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy orange color. Medium size white head, stays. Sour, wheat, yeast in aroma. Sour, grainy, bit of breadiness in flavor. Alcohol and unpleasant bitterness in aftertaste.

coempa (18) - Reeuwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle from De Molen, at home. The color is hazy dark blonde. The frothhead is tall but collapses fairly quickly, and doesn’t last very long afterwards. The taste is that of fresh spices and a touch of fruitiness, with a bitter, and alcoholic aftertaste, especially towards the end of the drinking experience. The bitter and dry aftertaste lasts fairly long. This beer is not top notch, but definitely a good choice for a fine, latesummer evening.

inbirraveritas (1510) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottled, 33 cl. Hazy yellow body with a foamy white head on its top. Nose and aroma ruled by grapefruit and lemon underpainted by earth, bread and hints of florals, mouthfeel is slick. It finishes tart-bitter and gently warming with distinct citrusses and herbs. Liked it.

ansjelaah (1747) - Westelbeers, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2013
Tap @ De Molen, gele kleur en niet helder, witte schuimkraag, ruikt naar mout, citrus, sinaasappel, beetje kruidig, niet veel koolzuur.
