Pinball (10844) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2014
2013 bottle from ølbutikken. cloudy orange,fluffy offwhite head. mild aroma, dough, faint sourness, very mild, not that saison like. flavor is sort of malty, faint spicy notes, more like a typical belgian strong ale than anything saison like. very smooth. disappointing bc of the style, but in general probably quite drinkable malty belgian beer. beneath the malts are quite some interesting notes that will draw the beer up on the scale if you take time to savour these notes. citrussy, red fruity notes. Also if you like smooth, this one is awesomely smooth...

paologalloni (107) - ITALY - MAY 29, 2014
Eccezionale saison che riesce a stare nei canoni dello stile pur essendo particolare e non ruffiana. Profumo di agrumi e frutta non troppo dolce.In bocca è poesia acidità ben bilanciata da vino bianco sapore di malti efrumento albicocca .MIRACOLOSA

mikedR (1216) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Truly a winter saison. Not very carbonated, and not sprightly on the tongue. Base flavor is quite good, albeit a surprisingly bit sweet. Overall, a nice one -- quite a wallop in ABV for this style, too.

Beersiveknown (2999) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle from brewdog online
essentially opaque ear wax amber with pillowy white head collapsing to a lacing.. bog myrtle, thyme and stem ginger on the nose. Gentle carbonation, full bodied wheatiness with a vegetal herbal note then some peppery twangs in a fairly brief finish. Flavours open up on warming with weissbeer like banana and clove esters and rising warmth. Complex, yes but not quite my cup of tea.

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle split at JF’s, big thanks to he, 04/05/14. Murky orange amber with a big old light beige head that retains well. Nose is dark fruit rinds, pepper, toffee, spices, bitter orange, straw. Taste comprises tangy orange, apricot, toffee, spice, clove, vanilla, farmyard. Medium + body, fine carbonation, tangy fruit and light booze tempered with sweet licks in the close. Solid saison, well balanced and very drinkable for the ABV.
