tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Pour is a murky orange, lots of yeast, and a huge off white head. Tons of funk on the nose, very floral, almost a hint of red grape, some sweet fruit, and slightly grassy. Very funky taste as well, very smokey (peat) too and that was very unexpected, musty grass notes, piney floral notes, and some very soft citrus notes. Definitely the most unique saison I’ve ever had. Don’t know how well the peat smokiness works, but it’s still tasty.

Pours cloudy dark golden. Nose is malts with some sourness. Taste is standard saison with spices and lots of sourness. I don't like the combination of the acidity in this beer.

Pinball (10686) - 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...

lusikka (5954) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark orange colour with a small head. A unique aroma of grains, coriander, some fern, ginger and grass. Flavour of white grapes, floral bitterness, wheat, grains, some alcohol, mild sweetness, dry grassy and herbal notes and some wood. Medium bodied and a dry, smooth, herbal and with a real nice lemon zing. Just great.

paologalloni (99) - 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 (1075) - 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.
