presario (4606) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle. Poured half an ounce into my glass and it transformed into enough foam to overlflow the glass. Even a third empty foam continued to rise from the bottle. Very pale yellow underneath the mammoth head. Light Sauson aroma. Flavour is at first like a baby Hobloun. A little thin and airy. Big lemon pepper bit in the middle and at the finish and relatively clean aftertaste.

Bottle. A simple and sharp saison. Some elder juice, currant and citrus.

hirigalzkar (2282) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle. This beer reminds me of elder juice in every aspect. It looks like it, smells like it and has that special natural tartness of it. It also got some citrus sourness. Nice in many different aspects but it’s a little too straight forward and lacks in complexity.

JorisPPattyn (7877) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2008
Huge fluffy head, just lemon-yellow tinted, irregular, over fully hazy (unripe) lemon yellow beer, and a good collection of UFO’s. Wheat, farmyard odours, vineleaves, bit of citrus. Citrus, lemon, herbal, garden herbs, little smoked touch, little point of acidity. In the finish, traces of ginger and lavender. Spritzy, thirst-quenching, vivifiant , light, inciting to drink (a lot) more. This is, eyes closed, the best REAL Saison I’ve tasted in years. This is short of sensational, and that from France!

A Mes rate: Bottle supped in the Harlequin in Sheffield thanks to Hughie.
Very cloudy with a slim white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with some slight spice. Similar flavour but with a pronounced sourness. It drinks almost like a Berliner Weisse. I’m hoping this is intentional as I am rating as such. It certainly does not come across as being infected at all. Plenty of character, dry and thirst quenching. I rather enjoyed it although no one else seemed to.

Thanks to Mr.s Hughie for bringing this back from her yoga extravaganza.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2008
Bottle opened at the Harlequin, Sheffield, on RateBeer Valley of Beer Crawl ’08. Many thanks to Mrs Hughie who brought this back from her yoga holiday in France. Yellowish grey with a small white head. Not a pretty sight. Sour aroma of aspirin. Bitter cidery taste with some citrus. Odd beer which suffered in comparison with some wonderful brews from around the world that were being sampled simultaneously. Sorry, dear French friends, your beer doesn’t quite make it internationally.
