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

commonmac (758) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle purchased somewhere but the location escapes me. Probably Elevated or Casanova in Hudson. Consumed in pint glass. Pours a orange golden with pretty minimal head. Aroma has the spiciness you would expect and want from a saison. Some mild citrus and yeast funk too. Mouthfeel has a strong lively almost effervescence working for it. Taste actually leans on more bitterness than I anticipated especially in the finish. Spiciness is present as well with a nearly peppery quality. Hard to really find the traditional saison in there. Missing the yeasty funk and the healthy dose of citrus. Strange name and strange saison.

crossovert (10014) - Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2015
355ml bottle. Imperial saison. Gusher as it is opened. Bottling date is 03/05/14. Fairly clearing pour with some haze. The aroma is stale malt, vinegary lager, nougat, and marmite. Flavor is marmite, autolyzed yeast, just lots of savory character. Tingly dry highly-carbed mouthfeel.

Spab (2939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
12 oz bottle from Bishops Cellar. Pours a cloudy golden colour with good-sized, lasting white head. Aroma is perfumey flowers, spice, citrus and wheat. Flavour is quite dry with a lot of clove and some coriander, as well as lemon zest, flowers and some graininess. Relatively fine, lively carbonation. Quite nice.

TET (2257) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2015
A yellow beer with an orange notes, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has strong fruitness with citrusy notes, spicyness, simple. Taste is fruitful and stongly spicyness of pepper, some lemon. Maybe even hint of alcohol. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. The simple but succesfully beer. Good.

12oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark orange, large white head, lots of lace. Aroma is bready, bananas, wheat. Flavor is yeast, wheat, banana, bubble gum. Little bitterness. Decent body, creamy finish. Refreshing, with it being 90* outside. A really good, complex ’saison.’

tightslice (601) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Pours a hazy gold with a massive, frothy head (that lingers long). Aroma is fermented fruits, peaches, some spicy soaps. Taste is tangy, biscuity, unripe banana and some bitter rinds. Very refreshing.

12oz bottle into tulip. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a lasting fluffy white head. Spicy nose, with a bit of clove and banana, earthy. Mix of malt and spice, banana, a bit of clove. Dry bitter finish, though with a touch of astringency. Alcohol masked, crisp. A nice saison.

Initial sulfur then spicy Dupont type aroma. Round spice and malt flavors. Body is a bit high for saison but very good beer.

weordie (479) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a dirty orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma of bananas and cloves, Belgian yeast and coriander. Very strong clove and coriander taste with a hint of banana. Tastes like a wheat beer. Bit over carbonated but still a solid effort.

hawthorne00 (3050) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle. Just hazy gold with a modest white head. Aroma of dough, oranges, coriander. Lightish bodied, lowish carbonation for a saison. Wouldn’t guess this was 7%. A bit of twangy dough, orange peel, pineapple. Rather dry and bitter finish is not as spicy as suggested by the aroma. Grew on me a lot - it’s far from rustic, but there is interest there and the finish is elegant.
