flip_soeperman (880) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
hay, dough, golden, cloudy, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, oily feel, average carbonation. Doesn’t have the barnyard saison aroma’s, but a very nice dry refreshing saison with some pepper notes.

hackobock (3122) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden with a large frothy white head. Sweet grain (and corn), yeast, pepper, lemon. Taste is sweet with a dry peppery/fruity finish, fizzy bubbles.

popery (1867) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours a deep orange color. Quite cloudy. Opaque. Big off-white head. Rocky. Good retention, lots of lacing. Solid clumps of bubbles stick to the glass. Fun paper-wrapping on the bottle. Lots of sweet, fresh grain in the aroma. Musty, yeast character. Smells dry. Very fruity. I’m getting a big tropical note with some stone fruit and citrus - pineapples, mangoes, peaches, apricots and lemons. A little bit of pepper spice. The taste starts with pale malt, nice and sweet. Lots of tropical and light stone fruit. Dry and dusty finish with a touch of hop bitterness. Medium body, fairly smooth. Despite the dry finish, it’s still quite gentle. Very good beer. It hits the traditional saison notes and puts some of its own unique spin on the style. Happy to have tried it.

The_Bish (1123) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Roast chicken and this. Great Sundays are made from ingredients like these. Not the best saison I’ve ever had, but great nevertheless. St Feuillien has best memories regardless of ratings history. Clean, fresh, fun. I dug up a load of garden today. I know why.

Dommod2011 (704) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Roast chicken and this. Great Sundays are made from ingredients like these. Possibly the best saison I’ve ever had. There was plenty of farmyard funk going on. Delaney and Bonnie were singing away. I am content. Looks like that song won’t get written today.

corkyrory66 (1265) - BELGIUM - APR 22, 2013
Cette saison titre à 5,5 % abv, ce qui est normal pour le genre. Couleur blonde très soutenue brillante, allant presque à l’ambre clair. Clarté nette, pure. Bulles très fines en fontaine au centre, et petites touches extérieures. Mousse blanche à 1 cm, qui colle ensuite aux parois. Arôme de houblon, coriandre, pointe de réglisse, amandes et zeste d’orange. Volume de la 1ère bouche plutôt liquide, et très curieuse saveur entre amère et acide... Arrière-bouche plutôt pimentée. 2ème bouche plus fondue, mais encore très amère... 3ème bouche sur le houblon et la coriandre. Arrière-bouche ne passe jamais à l’équilibre... Longueur sans grande envergure, mais on rejoint les limites d’une saison. Un désagréable piquant revient, dans un style assez acide. Levure bien adaptée, pas vraiment aigre. Niveau d’alcool qui ne prouve rien, ni n’aide aucunement au goût. Finale banale de pils. On pense ici aussi à la xx bitter. Une bière nettement surcotée, qui veut jouer un peu au ipa, mais qui rate à la fois la saison et l’ipa. Donc on ne savoure rien.. Eventuellement essayer en versant la levure énergiquement dans le verre ?? Je pense que l’équilibre devrait être un rien meilleur, mais on est de toute façon très loin d’une haute cotation...

jookos (5043) - FINLAND - APR 13, 2013
Bottle. Yellow, slight golden, hazy. Nose has citrusy hops, a bit of buttery malts, wheaty tones, yeast. A bit more malty than what I consider the normal saison ’bouquet’. Body is quite full and smooth. Has a bit bready malts, continental hops, a bit of corn, buttery flavours. Quite nice and smooth saison. Very drinkable and easy to like.

Leepe_steven (205) - Lede, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2013
Pours hazy golden with a three finger white head. Lots and lots of carbonation. Aroma has hops in it and smells like a regular lager to me. Taste is bitter and hoppy, light body, somewhat watery. Good for drinking all night long and not really exciting taste.
