hockeybeerguy (1477) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance had a nice frothy white two finger head with a clear blond-ish color. There’s a fair amount of carbonation that is seen rising. The smell had a good amount of yeasty/bready notes coming through in a rustic /earthy sort of way. Light apples and pears are there as well. The taste was earthy sweet with the light bready notes coming back. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in the body as it shows a decent sessionability about it. Overall, I say this was a good beer worthy of coming back to.

superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2014
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 11/2014. Cork popped off after I removed the cage. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright orange color with a 2-3 finger fairly dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of peach, apricot, pear, apple, black pepper, bread, light honey, hay, grass, herbal, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of peach, apricot, pear, apple, black pepper, bread, light honey, hay, grass, herbal, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, apricot, pear, apple, black pepper, bread, light honey, herbal, hay, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast ester and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/spicy yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2014
Flaska från Beergium. Bärnstensfärgad, klar men med lite fint jästsediment, lågt smutsvitt skum. Blommig, fruktestrig doft, apelsinzest, lite kryddig. Pigg spritsi munkänsla, lite oljig, orange citrszest, lite alkoholvärme, bubbelgumsestrar, lätt men tydlig beska, måttlig sötma, tor avslutning. Rena fina smaker i bra balans. En bra stark blond som inte sticker ut som känns välgjord och välbalanserad.

SimonTja (221) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Yellow with dense head. Citrusy, a bit zesty, quite a bit belgian yeast and some hay. Very refreshing, very dry, some bubblegum, lots of yeast esters.
