laiti (5569) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 12/2014
Funky and ’saisony’ aroma with some apricot and yeast. Flavour has grassy tones, some yeast, fruitiness and hints of urinal cake. Finishes with stronger grassy notes. Foamy palate is a bit too high on CO2. Rather tasty and rich saison for this ABV.

Swaroga (1272) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2014
33cl bottle. OCZY : kolor piwa jest pomarańczowo-żółty, piwo jest mętne i ma osad. Piana jest śnieżno-biała. NOS : mocne zapachy cytrusów, w szczególności skorki od cytryny. Również mocne są aromaty zbożowe, mokrego siana. Twaróg, tzw. derka końska. Zielona herbata i zioła. USTA : mocno gazowane o średnio oleistej tekturze. Średnio geste. Piwo jest wytrawne i mocno gorzkie. Słód jest zdominowany nutami nasion i siana. W smaku podobny do pełnoziarnistego chleba. Szybko nadchodzą wytrawne i mocno gorzkie nuty skorki od cytryny i nasion cytrusowych. Również mocno wyczuwalne są nuty drożdżowe. W posmaku jest gorzkie o nutach trawy, ziemi i siana. ODCZUCIA : spodziewałem się "saison" w typowo amerykańskim stylu : mocno cytrusowe o mdlistych, mydlanych aromatach chmielowych. Niema chyba nic gorszego co saison chmielony Cytrą. Całe szczęście, że jest ono bardziej w tradycyjnym stylu belgijskim. Świetnie chmielone o bardziej ziołowo-cytrusowych nutach co odzwierciedla wierniej ducha tego stylu. Jeden z lepszych sezonów jakie spróbowałem. OCENA : smak : 8 pijalnośc : 9

JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2014
Faintly hazy golden beer, heavily carbonated; small white rim with faint lacerings. Spicy (cumin?), faintly smoked and also faint grapefruity hops, sweat. Citrussy, spicy, other grains, wholemeal, also faintly smokey. Spritzy, light body. Long diminishing flavours in the aftertaste. Excellent beer with the wrong hops for a Saison, but that doesn’t diminish the enjoying.
