potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Orange in color with big beautiful off white head. Aroma is black pepper, lemon/orange citrus, some sweeter notes, cedar phenolic notes and a touch barnyard. Flavor follows. Moderately low sweetness with phenolic spiciness and a citrus fruitiness with hints of hop that follow with lingering hop bitterness. A touch barnyard, a mellowed lemon/orange citrus ester, some phenolic wood, and BOOM... you got yourself a classic Saison.

dnicolaescu (1379) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 7, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Almost clear golden, with a sticky creamy head. Smells of flowers and elderberries, a bit earthy too. Tastes very dry with vague floral notes, but not the traditional spice and pepper. Dry long clean bitter finish. Without the sugars, acidity and carbonation, the body feels a little flat, but no big deal. A good one.

Achel (240) - GREECE - SEP 29, 2015
Hazy gold beer. Little cream head. Light dry palate. Fairly dry. Floral note but with a bitter edge. Dry even malt and then some tart orange hop. Finishes dry. Easy drinking.

Renobob (1276) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 26, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Belle blonde claire. Nez sur le grain et pointe d'acidité. Palais bien équilibré, acidité/amertume bien dosé. Belle impression générale.

Niet echt fan van. Een biscuit-achtige smaak. Ik had het beter niet gedronken.

Maakun (1871) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Hazy orange golden with short lasting white head that leaves a thin film and some bubbles. Light grassy and herbal up front with fresh leafy vegetables, spicy yeast, light peach, and dry grainy notes. Lots of bitter leafy notes with some chicory and endive, with light malty and almost honey sweetness which gives way to a long lasting herbal bitter finish. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Everything works nicely together here, quite nice beer.

bmeup (585) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - SEP 19, 2015
Archive. Orange amber, quite lively tiny bubbles keep the 5mm persistent cover. Nose is malty, funky with some citrus. Pleasant orange/mandarin zest, some candy sweetness, wonderfully smooth and refreshing.

33cl bottle, served in tulip. Orange colour with medium white frothy head. Aroma is lemon with hints of green apples. Taste is lemon, orange, hops and fruits. Short bitter finish, no sour touch despite the smell. Medium body, good carbonation. Easy to drink and refreshing, good job.

juffage (136) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
33ml bottle from Buxton Tap House, Buxton. Expertly-balanced saison. Very reminiscent of Saison Dupont. Not too dry, fantastic lasting carbonation. Quality stuff.

SlackerMads (2271) - DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Bottled in 2013. Hazy orange with a medium sized good lasting off white head. Smells very nice, a mix of fruity yeast and some green hops, hay, grain and honey. The flavour has grain, hay, wood, earth with the fruit and honey behind it. Herbal, green plants, light chalk, light rubber, fruit gum, pepper, dandelions. Has a rural/rustic feel to it, which is bs to say, but it has. Medium body, some sweetness at first long pleasant bitter finish. Feels really good in the mouth, carbonation is perfect, soft and filling. Good stuff that totally sucks me in, the more I drink of it, the more I like it.
