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

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - hazy golden with a nice lacy head. Nose - tangy pineapple. Slight funk. Very delicate spice. Taste - light zingy yeasty pineapple. Palate - light to medium bodied with a lean tight texture in the middle section and a dry tangy finish. Overall - it’s a saison which is a style I like a lot. It doesn’t go beyond that but it’s good.

Leicht trübe goldgelbe Farbe, viel Kohlensäure, ordentliche weiße Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Kräutern, etwas Hefe, sehr malzig. Geschmack sehr malzig, reife Früchte, leicht hopfig, Kräuter, im Abgang bitter würzig.

McWorta (754) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 17, 2015
Golden colour with a light hue and a frothy large slowly fading white head, good lacings. Noses of fruity esthers with citrus and peach notes with some earthy herbal barnyard aromas. Effervescent, with a light slickness and a medium body. Light fruity esther sweetness comes up first which then develops some acidity and a well structured coherent malt-hop flavour note with a light bitterness and a light astringent hit. Overall harmonically balanced with a medium lasting finish.

Bottle from I-forget-where.

I came to this without particularly high hopes, but I always like trying new saisons. I suppose it’s been sitting on the store shelves for nearly a year, but I guess in this case that’s let the brett develop. It pours a cloudy maize into a Duvel tulip, launching a vast foamy white head. The aroma is really, really nice, Dupont-esque but with brett and some peppercorn. It manages to bring dust and straw up front with floral and herbal elements later on. Really a nice smelling beer. The flavor is no let down either. It’s substantially more bitter than expected, abundant hops pushing some citrus peel and the brett drying it out completely. Lemon and leather. More hop oil late than seems quite right for the style. Only the smallest hints of sweetness through the late middle, very little in the way of banana esters. Abundant, even explosive carbonation in the mouth. I like this beer. There’s no over-the-top magic here, but it’s got all the right elements for the type of saison I love to drink.

tl;dr summary: Dry, hoppy brett-driven saison.

brnandersen (2239) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2015
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. My Saison # 50! Hazy golden colour with a big, fluffy white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, yeasts, floral hops, light caramel malts, spices and sweet fruits - apricot. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively, rather fine carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with grasses and yeasts. Lovely Saison, has the same drinkability as Duvel. Very good!

Bouteille 33cl, no BB. Dorée, col fin blanc dispraissant vite. Arôme donne de suite un bouquet très belge qui n’est pas spécialement plaisant et rappelle plutôt les grosses productions du plat pays. Léger bouquet houblonné citronné. Palais reste ici très belge dans l’approche avec une effervescence que je trouve trop haute. Amertume oscille vers des feuilles de thé vert. Malt perce en retrait avec une certaine douceur venant de la levure et qui est plus agréable que à l’odorat.

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Belgium, consumed at home, Tuesday 23rd December 2014 Soft in the mouth, and by buggery after a hard hour of spinning at the gym this ain’t touching the sides. Nice warmth seeping through carrying a little spice and a bitterness at edges. A moreish little beauty. Enjoying this. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Good hop flavor but some sweetness. The scent is fruity. Just in time with the bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Enjoyable beer that is not too bitter. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
