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

fidelis83 (2196) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, bright white head. Aroma is spicy, peppery yeast, citrus, tart tree and stone fruit, light minerality and nice, sweet floral notes. Flavor starts off with spicy yeast, cereal, bready malt, grass, pepper doughy yeast, then lots of citrus and floral hops come in along with some spiciness toward the slightly bitter finish. Light to medium body with an oily but dry entry, dry finish and medium strength, sharp and blanketing carbonation that suit the beer very nicely. Really good. I usually end up wishing that most stronger Saisons were a little less so, but with the balance leaning more toward the hoppy side, and still having a solid, but not overbearing yeast presence I think this one is right where it needs to be.

TET (2117) - 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.

Changed (385) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2015
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 (439) - 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.

plaugher (265) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2015
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.

rgf001 (217) - München, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2015
Initial sulfur then spicy Dupont type aroma. Round spice and malt flavors. Body is a bit high for saison but very good beer.

weordie (334) - 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 (2832) - 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.

Monchito_IPA (175) - SPAIN - JUL 11, 2015
Anaranjada, muy limpia, con espuma con pobre retención. En aroma, levadura saison y un poco de fruta ácida, simple. El sabor es muy complejo y rico. Fruta roja con un poco de acidez, especiado / picante, final seco, muy amargo y ligeramente agrio. Es irregular, con mucho mejor sabor que aroma, una lástima la mierda de espuma.

Keg (Craft, Islington)
Turbid pale orange. Pleasant saisony aroma. Fizzy palate. Boring saison taste. Very cookie cutter, and with no character. Way too fizzy. Didn’t know the strength, it feels sub-5%. Bonus point for covering the alcohol well.
