Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, - APR 21, 2014
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a tulip glass. Nice and bright sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with an average, creamy white head. Quite funky (cellar/basement/dusty) upfront, more so than other typical saisons, slightly grainy, fruit esters, light sugar and yeast notes. Peppery zing on the palate, nice herbal bitterness, dry and refreshing. A hint of floral and citrusy notes in the aftertaste. Zero sweetness. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body and creamy texture. Very rustic, very pleasent.

Botted. Pours golden with a huge white head. Smells hay, a bit herby. Tastes hay, a bout sour, herby hoppy with a similar finish.

Garlic_of_Doom (614) - SWEDEN - APR 29, 2016
750 ml bottle. Hazy amber with a big, frothy head. No retention. Saison aroma allright, yeasty, herbal, peppery, citrus, some clove. Taste is yeasty, peppery, spicy with some malt sweetness and slightly higher bitterness than other saisons I’ve tried. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry. Bitter after taste.
A tad too sweet and bitter, otherwise a good no fuzz-saison.

craftbeersweden (507) - SWEDEN - APR 29, 2016
Bottled: December 11, 2015. Best before December 05, 2020. ABV: 5.5 %

A hazy, yellow to orange beer with a two finger high, white head.

Nose: Bread, Belgian yeast, honey, sweet caramel malt, herbs, spicy hops and citrus.
Taste: Malty flavor, spices, grass, orange peel, citrus and nuts.
Mouth: Dry and bitter. Medium, smooth carbonation. A little to much bitterness at the end.

I have one bottle that I will cellar fore some years and we’ll see if it matures.

Sigmund (6231) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 23, 2016
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.5%. Golden colour, large white head. Pleasant fruity and mildly spicy aroma of saison yeast. Medium dry flavour, more spicy than fruity, with a distinct hoppy bitterness in the finish, nearly medicinal in the aftertaste.

MartyW (10) - DENMARK - APR 18, 2016
Aroma is absolutely wonderful, fruity, citrus, malty. Appearance is gorgeous, good off-white foam with a lively but dull carbonation. Taste is hops, fruity spices, orange peel, a bit yest and hops leading to a finish of citrus and hops. Overall I find this too bitter for my liking.

SinH4 (2075) - Garching, GERMANY - APR 8, 2016
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange color with big white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is estery, floral hops, a bit lemony, hints of bubblegum. Taste is fresh, floral, wheat, dough, again a bit lemony, then towards the end some spices take over and the finish is dry, quite bitter, and spicy. Thirst-quenching, with a crisp carbonation. Saison like it should be - refreshing, subtle, but still complex. Nicely balanced as well, although the finish is on the rather spicy side. I like it a lot.
