zacgillbanks (4375) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle from E.Leclerc Supermarket, Grasse, France. Hazy straw coloured with a massive head of creamy white foam. It has a floral peach and slightly tart lemon flavour with a creamy vanilla and slight perfume and warming fruity finish. Pretty good

DraftDodger (1035) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2016
Copenhagen 13/8 2016. 75 cl bottle from Rema 1000. If you study the label you will not miss the point that this is a Belgian Saison and the winner of an World Beer Award called "World’s Best Saison". They are quite open about this. Modesty is the color of virtue. Quite foamy upon opening. Pours very hazy yellow with huge white head. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of creamy foam with substantial lacing. Aroma is fruity, tart and sour. Gooseberry, lemon and red curling. Notes of Belgian yeast and sweet undertones of peach. Light carbonation and thin palate. Taste has light sweetness followed by strong tart amd fruity sourness. Aftertaste is sour with sweet undertones. Quite good - but maybe not the best in the world. It would have to be quite extraordinary to be the Citizen Kane of Saisons.

brnandersen (3237) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2016
75 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Poured in to a Tulip. Why is this listed as a Belgian Ale? Hazy, golden colour with a big, fluffy white head. Fruity aroma with citrus fruits, bretts, light barnyard, bread and pale malts. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity bitter with lemons and yeasts. Lovely, classical Saison.

bonkiedeaap (619) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is hazy yellow colored and has a stable white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is fruity and spicy, with tones of orange peels, citrus, banana, yeast, pepper and coriander. The taste is fruity and light bitter, with notes of yeast and pepper, but also the fruits from the aroma are well noticable. The finish is light dry and bitter and is refreshing.
