Swaroga (1955) - Brussels, - NOV 3, 2012
75cl bottle. Hazy brown, orange, green ? It has a very small dirty head. Nose : tart, cherries, orange. Something funky, very spicy and cooked vegetables. Sip : strong carbonation, medium body with oily texture. Sweet and little sour. Interesting flavor from orange, clove, mango. It gets earthy and well hopped even though the bitterness isn’t overwhemling. Aftertaste is pepper and clove with some bitter hops. Since it is well carbonated it comes back like a lemonade. Another interesting and surely drinkable brew.

750, corked and capped. Thanks, M! Pours all over the table as soon as you pull the cork. Murky dark brown with a thin white head. Tangy basement nose, stale cereal. Watery thin body, carb is shot. Basement and irritation on the mid palate. This one was a loss.

Koelschtrinker (16247) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 5, 2016
Erfrischender, süß-säuerlicher Antrunk. Eher milde Hefigkeit, trocken, rund. Später würziger, vergleichsweise spritzig, langer süßlicher Nachhall, trocken. Gut. 7/9/9/9/11/9

Hazy amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and a little soft. Very fine carbonation. Smooth and very sweet malts, little cream. Trace of smoke. A skewed funky fruitiness on the back end before a smooth creamy finish. Odd but not offensive.

slowrunner77 (9392) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 25, 2014
An odd duck, somewhere between a BSA and a saison. Earthy with some farm character but also some alcohol and some fruit and yeast zestiness like a strong Belgian. Overpriced, but pretty nice.

beerguy101 (5354) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/10/2013. This saison pours a cloudy orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, orange and peaches. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, lots of orange and peach flavors. Hops are herbal and earthy, Nice balance. Good carbonation. A touch sweet and citrusy, sort of orange juice like. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

gyllenbock (7226) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle from Etre Gourmet, bought a couple of years ago. Hazy orange with a huge white head. Aroma and taste of funk, grapefruit, grass, yeast and fruit. Fairly light and with a medium bitterness.

SirLimpsalot (3502) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
@ Gyllenbock 14-12-13: doften är kryddig och brettig. Smaken är mycket sträv. Hö, brett, stall ... Känns som en mögelost. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle: Newer batch. Thanks, Jeff. Cloudy & hazy sunburst color with a foamy, bubbly beige film & collar across the top. Big cork funk in the aroma with sweet undertones of orange creamsicle & fresh wild strawberries. Candied, just a bit. Farmhouse dampness, musty hay, & some mild woodiness backing it all up. Spicier flavor... Almost getting notes of clove or cardamom with some zesty, potent Belgian yeast. Mild white pepper, even. Lots of woody notes & farmhouse funk, especially towards the latter half. Faint orange, semisweet caramel malt, musky wormwood, & a slightly bitter, earthy finish. Somewhat creamy body with a tight carbonation snap. Really nice, kind of like a more spiced & sweetened up version of the OG Saison.
