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

GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Pours a slightly orangey amber color with a thick, foamy head. Copious lacing. Nose is somewhat apple-cider-like. Notes of citrus and apricot. Taste is nicely balanced. Grapefruity bitterness on a rich, malty backbone. Full body; lively carbonation. Very nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CacheManyHose (235) - HONG KONG - OCT 29, 2014
From Craftissimo. Cloudy translucent straw with slight grey/green tinge and very creamy white head. Huge thick sudsy lacing. Smells of yeast (more cedar and earthy and floral than barnyard), lots of fresh fruit (peach, apricot, apple, lime), some light peppery phenols. Really nice interesting aroma. Tastes yeasty, spicy, lots of citrus, quite sweet with a sour Brett flavour. Body is medium, smooth, slick. Very solid saison.

HKdIPA (297) - HONG KONG - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Hazy yellow pour with dense head. Aroma is interesting - lemon, pepper, peach, yeasty. Taste is saison-y. With more brightness - peach and peppery spice. Rounded out by malty (?) sweetness. Bubbly smoothness. Bitter finish. Good saison - would probably be good with lamb or other earthy foods.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
On tap @ 10 East - I was really digging this one on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Honey aroma, crisp apples, grass clippings, Belgian-y esters with just a slight tangyness to it. Spice/yeast content was well balanced, light, clean bitterness from beginning to end with a refreshing grassy bitterness to enjoy. I’m usually not a huge fan of saisons but this was easy to enjoy.

Niksko (375) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2014
Pours a light clear golden with a lacy off white head. Nose is really gentle banana, a slight bit of funk, but really slight. Flavor is more really soft banana, just the barest suggestion of tartness, a little hint of funk on the late palate, and then a really smooth transition to a dry finish with a little bitter spice, a little biscuit, a little peach. Mouthfeel is really really silky and smooth. This is simply perfect execution. There’s nothing outrageous going on flavor wise, but all the flavors are very confident without being flashy, and the beer holds together immensely well. Just excellent.

RyanK (226) - Rhode Island, USA - OCT 13, 2014
12oz bottle code reads 189:14 so I think this should be fresh. Hazy bubbly yellow with chunks of sediment floating around and a white foamy head. Smells quite lemony with a little Belgian yeast and spice in the aroma. Has a nice mouth-feel light on carbonation despite appearance, light bodied but somewhat creamy maybe from the frothy head that continues to stay.Taste mostly lemony with faint spice. Not bad but real disappointing as this was expensive.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 12, 2014
[9/28/14] Draught at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Golden with a white head. Fruity aroma with quite a bit of diacetyl. Flavor has some sweetish diacetyl, fruitiness and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

chucklemation (562) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours a bright yellow with lots of bubbles and a foamy white head. Aroma is lemon. Flavor is lemon, some wheat/bread. The bottle I had was flat, though it was also about nine months old. Still, not too bad.

sk75 (23) - Ballyshannon, IRELAND - OCT 4, 2014
It pours a golden colour with a big white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma wise, its citrus with floral notes mainly. Taste wise its similar to the aroma with a dry hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is medium with average carbonation. Overall a very refreshing beer.
