A decent, but average Saison. I think that I paid too much for what it was. Plenty of herbal and funky goodness, but it was lacking something...

MustangMarkF (213) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2014
330ml Bottle. Aroma is very fruity, there’s apple, citrus in there as well as malts biscuits and the typical Belgian smokiness. It pours a cloudy amber with plenty of sediment and fizz. Its topped with a thick white head. The taste is very much along the same lines with added sweetness and a hint of burnt toast. It has a very dry finish. Not a bad beer at all tho -one of Belgians better ones.

Draught Third of a Pint at GBBF 2013, Olympia, London Aug 2013 - Labelled as "De Ranke Saison 7%"; but their only listed saison is Saison De Dottignies which is normally 5.5%; so this could be the wrong beer. Unfortunately took very sketchy tasting notes: Orange in colour. Cloudy. Earthy. Sour. Lemon fruity. Wheaty. Decent.

Grzesiek79 (2969) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 12, 2014
bardzo dobre saison, mocno chmielne i goryczkowe. Orzezwiajace i lekkie w piciu. Zolto pomaranczowa barwa, lekko nawet miedziana po dolaniu sporej ilosci osadu drozdzowego. Piana spora i trwala, znacznie wystajaca poza szklanke. Bardzo dobrze pasowalo do dania czyli drobiu. Polecam

330 ml bottle. Pours a veiled and sediment filled golden with a thick, resilient white head. Aroma is lemon, yeast, bread. Flavor is peach, pear, apple, yeast, sweetbread, bubble gum. Finish is lemon, vanilla. Some brett funk. Very dry. Medium body, average to strong carbonation.

shoulderbroken (1723) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle. Pale blond golden colour, big white head. Aroma is grainy, citrus hops like the others but less full on. Bit of bubblegum and herbiness. Taste is similar, perfectly nice, grainy saison, less pronounced than the smell. Decent enough though. Dry. Good stuff.

BeerGolem (620) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle 330 ml. Pours hay orange with medium lasting white head. Some lacing. Aroma: floral, yeast, light sweetness, hops, citrus (lemon), lavender... Taste is the same. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Dry finish. Medium bodied and fairly strong carbonation. Rught on style, refreshing and fairly enjoyable.

hawthorne00 (2257) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2014
Small bottle that thought about gushing, 10C. Just hazy amber with a large white head that collapses to an inch and then sticks around. Floral aroma with some dusty and earthy notes, lemon. Light bodied, very high carbonation which settled down after a few minutes. Surprisingly firm toasty caramel, although there’s little sweetness, lemon, spices (white pepper, cloves). Very dry finish with fairly high bitterness. I would have liked just a touch of nectarine to make it a little more welcoming, but this is a very good beer that seems just barely tamed.

Drunk from 75cl bottle bought from Malting Pot. Pleasant tasting saison beer. Blonde and full of hoppy flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (3790) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
pours hazy bright yellow with a very nice white head, good retention and lacing. bready, crisp, spicy and grainy malts - farmhouse character, floral and grassy, light sulfur, lemon zest, nice fruitiness - white grapes, tasty yeastiness - slightly dusty, hint of woodsy notes. lively to average carbonation, light body - never watery, assertive and very grassy-herbal with a citrus bite finish. classic farmhouse. nice!
