superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2012
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 printed on the cork. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 3 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pepper, coriander, earth, clove, pear, wheat, grass, hay, bread, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, pepper, clove, pear, wheat, bread, grass, hay, coriander, earth, herbal, floral, and big yeast spiciness. Light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, wheat, pepper, clove, coriander, bread, earth, grass, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor complexity and balance; very crisp and fairly dry finish; no cloying flavors at all. Great malt flavor to spiciness balance as well. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy, chalky, and fairly prickly and crisp mouthfeel that is excellent. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely world class saision. Insane balance and complexity of flavors; extremely crisp and smooth to sip on. I am going to have to revisit the normal Saision Dupont soon to compare; this is apparently the organically brewed version of that. WOW.

Bottle at home. Lovely creamy, white head. Pale yellow. Predominantly bitter but with underlying yeasty fruitiness that develops as the beer warms up. Not bad.

PapaVillum (295) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 12, 2014
25 cl, flaske, 7,5 % ABV, gave fra Gert og Michele - tak! 12. april 2014. Ufiltreret honningfarvet økologisk belgisk ale med én fingers offwhite-farvet skumkrone. I næsen er der belgisk gær- og citrus-noter. Lidt honning. Overvejende bitter smag med lækker finish. Sødmen er medspiller og elementerne er i flot samspil. Alkoholvarme. Medium indhold af kulsyre. Dejlig øl!

Linnet (1029) - Umeå, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
Lovely Belgian yeasty funkiness paired with a bready and noticable malt prescence, enveloped in an assertive but laidback hoppiness softened by alcohol and herbal funkiness, in short a real quality brew.

Lite dimmig/lätt grumlig och citron skals färgad med ett mycket stort , lätt gul färgat skum. Doft: Gräs, örter (bl.a. lite tulsi), lite peppar, belgo saison, billig päron cider, jäst. Smak: Gräs, över kokta grönsaker, örter, belgo saison, billig päron cider. Lite för gräsig och päron cider aktig.

SamTheBarrel (316) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2014
750ml green corked and caked bottle, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is hazy goldenrod yellow with particles, and a medium sized frothy white head, that when reduced left a little lacing. Aroma of pears, hay, banana, herbs and lemon peels. Flavours of pears, herbs, lemon peels, banana and spices. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a nice beer that I would classify as a Saison, because of the notable presence of spice and herbs in the flavour.

Hoppsan (93) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
75 cl bottle. Pours clear golden with medium head. Aroma is full of cloves, basil and coriander. Taste notes similar with black pepper and dry finish. More of a saison than a blonde. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
