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

BLADT (577) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle pour. Honey colored, with limited head that quickly turns into a soapy film that lingers. Aroma is Belgium yeast and the requisite spice, apple cider vinegar, barnyard bacteria and pleasant backing of lemony hops. Very lively. Taste starts tart - pears, apples - and then moves through a generous amount of grassy hops. Some coriander and passion fruit sweetness jostle for attention. Bitter for style, but well done.

Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a light golden color with thin white bubble head that fades quickly. Aroma is of yeasty esters, light lemongrass, Belgian spice, and light hop notes. Taste is light Belgian spice, lemongrass, clove, and light bread notes. I like that this has some tartness in the finish to keep this beer from slipping into a more sweeter side. Solid beer.

12 oz. bottle. Poured a hazy light orange with only a hint of carbonation present. Light lemon nose. Flavor of grass, lemon, pepper with a touch of coriander. Dry, mildly bitter and peppery finish. Medium bodied. Nice saison overall despite a poor appearance.

Ron (2493) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle. When I bought this I thought it read differently, so I saved it for Easter. Golden and hazy with a white head. The aroma and flavor is pepper, spicy hops, herbs, yeast and tropical fruit. Medium body with a soft feel and a lightly bitter finish. It was inoffensive.

bellco33 (286) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - APR 21, 2014
Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours hazy straw with a large light white head. Full disclosure: I don’t like brettanomyces. If you do, you’ll really like this beer as it’s a good example of its use. If not, you won’t. Aroma is barnyard funk, grass, earth, straw, and other saison-y aromas. Taste is more of the same, with the brett really standing out. Light to medium body, good carbonation.

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with a tall, foamy white head. Strong yeast notes, earthy hops, funk, dried fruit and floral notes. Taste is wheat, toasted malt, floral hops, earthy notes, funky yeast, and light grainy and bready notes. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more funky yeast, earthy notes, floral hops, dried fruit notes, toasted malt, bread dough and grains.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1856) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 20, 2014
Bottle picked up at CBB and saved to enjoy on Easter Sunday. A clear shining deep gold pour with a thick foamy head that lingers and leaves lacing clinging to the glass. The aroma is summertime, citrusy spicy saison. Very smooth bodied with a surprisingly full mouthfeel. According to the Japanese label honey is one of the ingredients, that honey sweetness does come through when you first take a sip. It’s followed by earthy spices, citrus, some mild saison funk and a slightly dry finish. I get the feeling wheat may also be part of the malt bill. A great saison, that really suits my tastes.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange gold with thick frothy white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong citrus, yeast, and pepper. Medium mouthfeel with nice citrus,clove, and spice. Lingering dry finish. Good.

Concealer (748) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a frothy, clean-white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of citrus, lemon, yeast, and spice. Flavor is the same. Light to medium bodied with a slightly dry and bitter end. Lingering citrus and spice.

Beerathon (1131) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2014
Fruity esters, lil’ bit of funk, yeasty, crisp, soft carbonation, frothy head with lacing, cloudy golden hue. Fine saison.
