COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Very light retention and light lacing. Smells of mango, lemon zest and spices. Tastes of lemon, cereal, peppercorn and spices. Spicy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a thick white head. Aroma is lemon, floral notes and faint coriander. Taste is pretty complex for a saison. An almost astringent sweet lemon up front leading to a floral and somewhat more astringent mid palate. The coriander kicks in for the finish. Very pleasant and balanced without the heavy yeast I’ve experienced with other saisons. This one has earned its score.

(bottle - 12 oz) Golden pour with a mountain of white foam. Dry and earthy yeast and mild spice aroma. Some bitterness underneath. Flavor is dry and bitter at the start with a very lightly spiced middle and a dry and very acidicly bitter finish.

JHeath99 (903) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle from Growler Spot. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a layer of cream colored head. Aroma of citrus, funk, and a hint of spice. Taste of yeast and citrus fruits, but the lingering taste is sort of bland.

MrFecesious (942) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a big white cap that settles to a skimming doily. Great horse blanket aroma, sweet hay, super funky. Taste is sweet and tart. Medium dry finish. Quite terrific.

Golden yellow hazy with a thin head. Nice Saison easy drinking lots of yeast flavors and finish. Good beer true to style Saison.

12 oz bottle at home 2013 notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized fizzy white head. The aroma and flavor had farmhouse funk, earthy, light citrus hops, medium fruity esters, apple, light vinous notes, pale malts, crackers with a dry finish. Medium body, decent saison.

Rando7 (733) - Iowa, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle pours cloudy amber with thick white head. Aroma of spices, funk and Belgian yeast. Taste follows aroma with slight citrus and some malt sweetness. Finish dull bitterness, overall detracts. Kind of an average saison, nothing to distinguish it.
