COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complessa ma non difficile. Corroborante e beverina, come nella rigorosa tradizione stilistica delle Saison, birre del pranzo estivo contadino. Al naso e in bocca è un’esplosione di fresca solarità.

Oro brillante sormontato da una meringa di schiuma fine e compatta. Naso caratterizzato dalla speziatura tipica del lievito utilizzato, pepe fresco su un floreale bianco che ricorda il sambuco e il tiglio. La bocca, dopo un attacco morbido,si distingue per una piccante freschezza,che termina con una luppolatura vegetale e balsamica che ricorda la radice di liquirizia. Si sposa bene a piatti caratterizzati da una buona grassezza e anche speziatura, come salumi e affini. Resiste anche a carni di selvaggina e sorprende su piatti speziati della cucina indiana.

Davros (2256) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
Volcanic opening. Pours hazy with a large fading head. Nose shows doughy yeast, spicy phenols, faint floral notes and spicy hops. Also faint sweet malt. Very dry flavours; doughy yeast and spicy phenols followed by an almost harsh finish and accompanying alcohol. Way too much carbonation.

hawthorne00 (2768) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle, semi gusher. Hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma of lemon pudding, cloves, vanilla, honey, cracker bread. Sweet with some tangy lemon/ lime flavours, herbs and spices at the bitter but just short of dry finish. Too much bitterness and spice emphasis for my liking in this sort of thing. (Added) And as it warms there’s an unpleasant blood-like taste at the end too.

Good sized, lasting, white head on a hazy golden body. Some pepper notes on the aroma along with some lime. Medium body, mainly light spice in the taste but easily drinkable.

Fin (8256) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle, from Dranken Geers, Oostakker nr Gent, Belgium June 2012 consumed at WOMAD Friday 27th July 2012 Watching a band and stood up amongst quite a throng, so tricky rating. This certainly had some typical Saison attributes but was a little muted in terms of flavour and aroma. Howevet to be fair it is now quite dark outside and I cannot really determine the colour all I can smell is burnt cheese which I’m sure is from a food stall. Beer seems fine but tasting this in testing conditions will re-rate again at some point. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2012
In short: A dry and very dusty blonde Saison. I liked it but wouldn’t recommend it
How: Bottle 330ml, another gift from good-ol-Paul, exact age unknown, consumed 6 months before expiration date
The look: (A bit of a gusher) Cloudy dirty blonde body, lots of small particles, medium white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is like shaking an old dusty rug face in the wind. That’s a lot of dusty yeast, old dusty attic and some dried flowers. Taste is also dominated by the dusty yeast which makes for a very mouth-drying sensation. There is also dried flowers, notes of your grandma’s peppermint, minerals/spicy sensation (white-pepper), dry salty crackers, yellowed dry grass. Aggressive carbonation, hard to keep the beer in the mouth. Very very rustic and the keywords here are “dry” and “dusty”. For lovers of the style only. It was very nice of my ratebeer buddy Paul to give me this beer because he know I’m a Saison lover, but the coolest thing about ratebeer is after 7 years on this site, after spending hundreds of hours typing ratings, after completing a few hundred trades, if I was to quit it all tomorrow there would be at least 3 or 4 people who would care for almost 20 minutes.

Martinus (3637) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2012
Slightly hazy golden colour, firm white head. Aroma of hay, lots of yeast, generic sweets (zuurtjes), light barnyard. Malty sweet flavour, bread, light fruity. Malty sweet finish, quite herbal, light cloying.
Starts out nice, but can’t keep it up.
(Draught @ Moeder Lambic, Italian Beer Festival)
