JorisPPattyn (8573) - Ursel, - FEB 2, 2013
Fine head & white lace; hazy yellow-greenish beer. Coriander!!!... fake lemon, ureum. Coriander!! and a bit of malt/wheatsugars. Citrussy, lame. Spritzy, empty, light; Oh dear. Calling this atrocity saison is a crime.

Aroma: pale grain malts, yeast, wheat, light citrus. Appearance: hazy gold, massive, creamy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweet malts, ripe citrus fruits, some bitters coming up, soft carbonation. Overall: OK Saison, quite citrussy. Pint at The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh.

Scopey (9412) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle at Pre-GBBF Shindig 2015. It pours cloudy gold with a thick white head. The nose is doughy, wood, cracker, earth and spice. The taste is crisp, bitter, sort of sweet, minerals, green apple, pear, melon, spice, straw and leather with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A bit simple and sweetish. Ho hum.

750 from Total Wine.

Light straw colored pour, hazy with a nice white head. Pretty restrained aroma, some light esters, quite dusty, a bit of pepper, some spice that you’d find on a roll, is it oregano? Thyme? Quite refreshing flavor, thin and sparkling with the essence of lemon but no real tartness, feeling like 5% rather than 6.4%. A really pleasant beer that I’m very happy to savor this evening. It’s great to have some of these classic Belgian saisons showing up in our stores. I don’t remember how this one was priced, but if it wasn’t too much more than Saison Dupont it would be good to rotate into the mix every now and then.

Pours a very hazy golden color with a white head. Aromas of, bread, nuts, herbs, citrus. Taste the same with some malty sweetness. Light mouth feel. Nice beer.

Pre GBBF tasting at Chris and Ruth’s. Hazy gold beer, good fluffy white head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Light and mildly sweet malts. Sweetish floralness. Mild lemon seltzer. A light and fairly crisp finish brings some sweet yeast. Fine but never really takes off.

villevav (352) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2015
[2015-07-20, Elephant Pub, Varsova] Sitruunankeltainen, hieman samea, ohut vaahtofilmi. Tuoksussa sitruunaa, hiivaa ja yleistä hedelmäisyyttä, jota en osaa tähän tarkemmin eritellä. Maku hapan, kuiva, katkeroita, sitruunainen. Jälkimaun osalta katkera ja ehkä hieman suolainenkin. Suutuntuma on raikas, hiilihappoisuus keskiasteinen ja runko keskitäyteläinen.

thebeertourist (5131) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle from Kris Wines. Hazy, pale yellow with a fine white foam. Spicy nose, definitely some coriander as well as fruit. Semi-dry, herbal and fruity. Nice enough, but easily forgotten.

harrisoni (15319) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015

olsvammel (4238) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Bready and malty smell with some pale bread. Similar taste. Drinkable but nothing special. Didn’t feel like a saison.

larsga (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
Huge coarseish white head. Hazy yellow body with strong carbonation. Floral mealy orangey aroma with spicy herbal notes. Dry-sweet spicy mealy orangey taste with herbal spicy notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish dusty freshly cut wood aftertaste with orangey mealy notes. Excellent! Strong, clear, fresh, vivid flavours, yet delightfully easy to drink. Really an outstanding beer by any measure. (0.75l bottle, from Systembolaget Karlstad.)
