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

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazed yellow gold. A very thin head. Aroma is a little sour for the stule. Fruity. Flavor is a little sour, too. This is also malty and fruity. A different kind of saison but a good one.

jaghana (3808) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle 50cl from fonefan thanks ! A cloudy yellow orange beer with huge head. Nose is on yeast and brettanomyces. Aroma is very dry like, again brett notes, lot of bittering hops without aromatic ones, burnt notes, bitter, grapefruit, yeasty, fruit astringency, not easy drinkable, medium complex.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear light yellow with light retentive head. Aromas of yeast, cloves, and sour fruit. Flavors of tropical fruit, bubblegum, light pine, and floral notes. Very nice.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2012
In short: A straightforward rustic blonde with a spicy hops twist. Unfortunately lacking the required lively mouthfeel. Good anyway
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed two weeks after purchase (as fresh as I can get Danish beers in North-America)
The look: Clear blonde body topped by a large whit head leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is straightforward but all-so-pleasant rustic yeast, a bit on the dusty attic side and with light fruity esters. Taste is just as straightforward. Lots of oily cereals, a bit of honey, notes of sweet bananas, rustic dusty yeast, dried yellowed grass, a bit of hops spiciness. Finish is medium-dry, lightly bitter and has a long-lasting spicy grassy hops sensation. This is a basic Saison just like I like them, except that this one was lacking with lively mouthfeel that make basic Saisons such nice beers. The mouthfeel very very oily with sparse hard small bubbles. I did enjoy the beer quite a bit because basic Saisons are my session beers of choice. Named after the Beaster Bunny, the one hiding the easter eggs because he doesn’t want to know that he screwed the chicken that crossed the road.

beastiefan2k (2404) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Tap @ Flying Saucer 4th Anniversary party. I have a long rating for this but I will just break it down. Beautifully thick brett-induced head atop a light golden body. All floral-brett, a little phenolics coming through off the brett but not bad. Really cool brett beer, if it were cheap I would dirnk it all the time.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Clear and pale with floaty foam shapes. light FRESH banana esters and some a bit of a flabby Tripel to be honest. Tight carb perfect for a TRIPEL. Yeah so I guess there is some musky tuberose to it as well.

PhillyCraft (3166) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle with Brad last year, pours a hazy glowing orange, medium soapy sticky white head. Aromas of guava, tangerine, apricot, chalk, flower pedals, bubblegum, eucalyptus, lemon, and brett. Taste is pears, lemons, orange, frape, bubblegum, brett, saison, peppery chalk notes, Finish smooth like a grape fizzy pop. Awesome and unique beer.
