Danish: Frydefuldt diset strågylden og brusende livlig uden at være overlivlig er den. I næsen er der krydderier, nyslået hø, kløver og citron med anstrøg af fersken og pære. Sprød, karakterfuld og tør er den med forfriskende florale noter og citrus som smagsdominerende, men selv om den er behageligt fri for sediment slår den mig alligevel som mere råhumlet og gårdbrygsrustik end belgiere som Dupont og Duvel. Så der er måske lidt farlighed i den, uden at jeg vil gå så vidt som at kalde dens vederkvægende bitterhedspift for bestialsk. Genial var den som modgift mod eliotsk melankoli og som alternativ til påskens overvægt af lidt for maltsøde bocks.

English: In Denmark we have a lovely tradition for seasonal beer, and what you have here is certainly no exception. This is a never before seen collaboration between Ryan and the Beaster Bunny. A fluffy and precious Saison brewed on the beautiful island of Fanø on the west coast of Denmark. It may sound like a true fairytale, but don’t be fooled by it’s cute appearance.
Ingredienser: vand, malt, humle, gær.

Editor’s note: initially brewed by Fanø in Denmark

Four pack from Wines & More in Milford CT. Poured into a tulip glass. A grassy light honey color. White head that fades to a thin lace. Herbal-citrus aromas. Flavor is very yeast. Dry profile, and pretty much one dimensional, but otherwise fairly tasty and drinkable. Lingering dry-bitter-yeasty finish.

This is a version of this style that would have me becoming more a fan of the style. Aroma is citrus, yeast. Taste is lemon, slightly roasted grain and followed by a nice, mild hops bitterness and a little bit of booze - just a tiny bit. Palate is very satisfying, not too carbonated, just right. Very good.

Bottle. Aroma of orange and yeast. The taste is very similar. Very light on any alcohol burn, and the orange and yeast are very prevalent. Very tasty brew, highly recommended. 7% alcohol.

A great saison. Pours a hazy lemon color. Aromas of bread, lemon, and dust. Flavors are bright and citrusy with a nice hoppy finish. Very nice.

From 12 oz bottle in tulip glass. Pour is slightly hazy yellow with a thin but persisting head. Herbal aromas with strong ¸farmhouse yeasts. Lots of citrus and some grains. Taste is relatively bitter and the bitterness stays for a long time. A strong alcoholic touch for a beer with 7 %. Strong belgian yeasts. Floral hops. Very refreshing, but quite heavy for a Farmhouse Ale.

Massive, puffy white head. Intense carbonation. Cloudy pineapple yellow color. As it dies down, an absolute sheet of thick, white lace protects the rim of the glass: possibly the most incredible lacing I’ve ever seen. Aroma is soapy, with touches of lemon and floor cleaner. A little horseblanket touch, but not overwhelming. The flavor is musty, with more of that Lemon Pledge flavor. (Not that I have a true basis for comparison here.) There is a leafy component, with some hay and maybe a touch of grape nuts? The finishing touch is a slight citrus/tangerine accent. The feel is creamy and smooth. This is a really enjoyable beer; full of flavor but middle of the road enough that you could pass it around.

milewide (1535) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Full body, with a hazy golden color. Malt sweetness offset by multidimensional Belgium yeast. Heavy for a saison, but very enjoyable.

Cunningham (4629) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2014
Hazy golden color with a big thick white head. Nice aroma with yeast, citric and some spices. Medium body. Fine mix between sweetness and bitterness. Really fresh and easy drinkable. Soft to average carbonation. Balanced smooth and fresh flavor. Yeast, citrus, mild fruity and some spices. Lovely ale.
[Bottle at Schouskjelleren in Oslo, Norway]

Bottle. Musty, lemon, pepper and malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with small head. Sweet musty lemon malt and lightly bitter herbal flavor. Body a bit light. Very pleasant.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Sample from growler. The beer is a slightly hazy golden color with a thick and fluffy white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with a funky yeast character and flavors of pithy citrus, toasted malt and earthy hops. The finish is fruity up front with an herbal yeast and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
