Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Tangerine pour with a layer of fine white bubbles so dense they look like you could walk on them and they’d hold you up. Soft earth and leather nose, with a distinct torrified wheat edge. A cold sea air quality develops a bit deeper in the glass. Dry peppery flavor, a bit of melon, just a little resin bitterness in the finish. Very pleasant as it is, though I suspect there is some level of brightness missing from this beer after the long journey. Closer to the source, I can picture this being remarkable.

Bottle. Orange color with strong foam head. Turns murky when yeast us deposited. Refreshing saison aromas: yeast, grains, lemon, cheese, grass, garage funk. Taste is a little bitter, with a typical saison undertone (yeast, cheese), white grapes. Funky aftertaste, lemon.

Torrefacto (743) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 27, 2015
Dorado limpio con espuma blanca ligera aunque duradera. Intensos y frescos aromas de fruta verde. herbáceo y pan. Cuerpo ligero, sabores afrutados, trago fresco y final seco moderado.

Andy_ (830) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015
330 ml bottle
Orange hazy beer with frothy dense big white head. Aroma has pale malts, Belgian yeast, slight funkiness, flowers, apricot and honey. Flavor has pale malts, grassy bitterness, fruitiness and yeast. Palate is thicker than medium full and foamy. Finish has quite initially mild bitterness, but it lingers long and feels stronger afterwards. Aftertaste is malty sweet, grassy and yeasty stuffy. Some soapiness as well. Decent, but not the most refreshing or crisp saison. Feels almost too yeasty.

aleigator (340) - GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
Pours a big, bubbly head with a golden yellow, clean color. Has aromas of crisp citrus with unripe orange among slightly spiced wet grass. Peppery spices get a mild, dough touch to them, due to a distinct, slightly tart, lemony, yeast foundation. Reveals a convincing interplay between gentle, floral hops and mild, spiced yeast. The taste mirrors the nose to a certain degree, with a fruity, lemony beginning, revealing clove, cardamon and pepper, together with orange zest. Mouthfeel is outstandingly smooth, all flavors get coated up by a mellow yeastiness, which provides a pleasant complexity to the refreshing, slightly sour fruits. Has a crisp spiciness with a biscuity, dry hoppy finish, and a metallic hint added from the high carbonation. Very round, refreshing and versatile, while staying at lower abv, perfect example of a traditional saison.

Bov (9964) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2015
from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier - pretty clear orange beer with no foam left; aroma of peaches marmalade, light sourness, medium-bodied; long lasting moderate sourness in the finish, very fruity and gently estery

BrewGoblin (517) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
A delightful lil’ sipper while waiting for my own Saison to be ready. Funky and tart, a light amber pour with a yeasty haze and a fizzy white head that peters off quickly. Vinous and fruity, white grapes, peaches, lemons, honey, corn, cereal and yogurt play nicely in the aroma and taste. With a palate quite dry, it is also somewhat full yet lively. It is a wee bit on the tart side for me but still a fine beer indeed.

floydian1 (1101) - FNQ, Australia, - FEB 9, 2015
33cl bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. A cloudy orange beer with a medium-sized white head that settles to a persistent film. Aroma offers orangey citrus, stonefruit, fresh bread, straw, light peppers and earthy yeasts. Palate is pleasantly clean and dry with bittersweet and yeast-driven flavours. A good mid-range example of the style.

Pours hazy deep golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, pepper and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long dry, pepper, yeasty, citrus finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is fizzy
