bockimstein (167) - New Madrid, Missouri, USA - DEC 16, 2011
On tap at the Avenue Pub. Hazy blond a medium white head. Citrus and some herbs. Sweet with a dry and bitter finish. Decent saison, but does not have the expected "kick.".

Bottle 33 CL Pours hazy gold with a thin frothy head. Aroma is spicy with notes of basil. Taste is citrusy with a little bitter in the aftertaste. Quite monodimensional to me. Light body with medium to high carbonation.

haukur (1259) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 25, 2014
Dark orange, fluffy head. Peppery nose, some tiny hints of leather and orange peel. Acidic, some malts, nice bitterness, crisp finish. This is the good stuff.

Sjohnh (98) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Very nice saison - all the right notes in just the right order. Peppery spice nose, creamy body delivering more spice and herbs, subtle citrus and bitter finish. Hazy golden colour with small white head and good lacing. DuPont is one of my favourite beers and this runs it very close indeed.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Keg at Six Deg North. It pours lightly hazy golden with small head. The nose is orange sponge cake, earth, spice, hay, dough and dirt. The taste is bitter, orange peel, tangerine, spice, hay, earth, wood, lemon sherbet and soda water with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty alright.

Moravius (381) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Flasche (75 cl), Abfüllung 2012, ein Jahr im heimischen Keller gelagert. - Orangegelb, schwach trüb. - In der Nase milde hefige Süße, fruchtige Noten und interessante Andeutungen von Pfeffer, Zitrusfrucht und Gewürzen. - Im Antrunk wuchtig bitterer Hopfen, herbe Orangenschale. Die kräftige Bittere dominiert mühelos die ebenfalls vorhandenen fruchtig-obergärigen Noten und eine leichte Restsüße wie von Kandiszucker. Schaumig rezent, schlankes Mundgefühl. Trockener, gut bitterer Abgang mit holziger Grapefruitbittere und Pfeffer. Lang anhaltender, kräftig bitterer Nachtrunk. - Wuchtiges Saison, knackig scharf gehopft, aber auch mit leichter Fruchtigkeit im Hintergrund.

Jorn69 (756) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2014
@ Havregatan. Flaska (330 ml) från Kihoskh, Köpenhamn (24 DKK). Fruktig med jäst- och kryddtoner, medelfyllig. Avslutningen är torr och besk med fruktiga och jästiga toner. Frisk, trevlig och lättdrucken.

bonkiedeaap (238) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle from the bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has hazy golden color and a large white head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma is very fruity with tones of citrus, apple, yeast and some spices (I think coriander and cloves). The taste is a fresh by the CO2, a little sweet by the fruits and a little bitter in the end by the spices. The finish is refreshing, dry and long with a nice light bitterness.

I like my saisons dry and funky and this one was close. Didn't quite hit the mark but I enjoyed it.

Ambro206 (90) - ITALY - APR 30, 2014
Gli aromi fruttati ed erbacei si uniscono in questa birra. È però la luppolatura a prendere il sopravvento in maniera aggressiva facendo risultare la birra poco bilanciata.
