ClearHead (7) - FINLAND - OCT 12, 2016 does not count
1 Pt bottle, BB date 15/4 2017. Excellent lacy, durable, white head. (How do they do it? I can get the aroma and taste in my beers, but never a head like that...) Color pale wheat, hazy. Aroma pleasant, subtle; seems to improve with every sniff; slightly yeasty, with garlic (! the first time I have ever experienced in a beer!) and clove. Taste also pleasant, slightly tart with bitterness finely balanced, ebbs away towards the finish; spicy with cinnamon/coriander. Mouthfeel medium, quite suitable. Cost an arm and a leg (in a supermarket in Albufeira, Portugal). Yet, I am not disappointed. This is perhaps not the world’s best Saison (as the label claims), but I would not mind having another one; provided someone else pays...Give it a try, mate!

Nische (1915) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours pale yellow with white head. A little bit grainy and yeasty aroma with light spices, bubble gum, cloves. Mild taste of herbs, grass, spices and bubble gum. Lightly sweetish with a short finish. Light body and easy to drink.

HonusWagner (2127) - Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2016
FIELDS OF GOLD A grainy golden saison/table beer/Belgian golden ale with a nice yeasty character and high drinkability. It won’t sting you with flavors you’ve never experienced but it’s tasty regardless.

weark (653) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Bouteille achetée Au Grain D’Orge - De couleur dorée légèrement trouble avec une fine mousse blanche qui colle - Au nez des arômes d’épices très prononcé, écorce d’orange, presque un nez de blanche, ne ressemble pas a ce que j’attend d’une saison - En bouche toujour de l’écorce d’orange amère, épice, levure - Corp léger, amertume moyenne, carbonation correcte, sèche, final fraîches et fruitée - Pas fanne ne ressemble pas a une saison pour moi, mais la bière en elle même est plutôt sympa

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Rating #2105- 2015.10.08 - Bottle for Beer School @7Degrees.Mildly hazy, golden yellow pour with a bubbly white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is yeast, coriander, and cloves. Taste is mildly sweet, herbal. Light bodied, this packs an albeit underdeveloped punch. Finish is quite smooth. Delicious.

AirForceHops (6284) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 26, 2016
750 ml bottle split 2 ways with Willrunforbeer on the share. Yellow /golden color with a great billowing head. Plenty of carbonation in the chalice.

Aroma is citrus aroma, wheat, and straw. The flavor follows suit and it is a simple, classic Belgian ale. Grainy texture in a lighter body. Mouthfeel is nice and gives an effervescence. Definitely a decent table beer.

750ml bottle shared with AirForceHops. Big thanks for helping me muscle in that appliance tonight! Pours yellow gold with a big white head. Aroma is lemon, light earthy spice, mild pepper. A touch sweet with light malt, earthy spice, mild pepper. Finishes dry.

BelgiskOlklub (1051) - Viby J, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2016
Hazy light yellow body and a creamy white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat and bread. Reminds me of a wheat beer rather than a good belgian saison. The taste is medium sweet and bitter.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 25, 2016
33cl bottle from eDrinks, Tallinn. Pours hazy pale golden with a white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with spicy notes, typical saison and noticable Belgian. Moderate to medium sweet with a pleasant acidity and medium flavour intensity. Fairly refreshing and quite tasty.
