(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Hilpeä Hauki, 20120523) The keg was finished before I arrived, pity. The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had hops, spices, sourness and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, fruitiness, grass, sourness, spices, malst and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, sour, spicy and bitter. A decent hoppy saison.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2012
Aromas are classic saison - straw, funky wild yeast, some sourness, plenty of candy. A slightly hazy golden number with a tightly packed white head. Initially rather aggressive and bitter - prickly carbonation and hop bitterness make a second-take necessary before it settles out into a very smooth sweet belgian affair, finishing with a massive lemonpeel-bitter citra hop finish. Some substantial bitterness, incredibly refreshing and pleasantly perfumed in the finish. Scarily drinkable and easy going for its strength. Just wonderful.

BREWMUSKCLES (2266) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2012
a big Belgian farmhouse amped up and hopped up some. Spiced with som alcohol and hops, yeast and some malt. powerful. Beautiful golden orange busy and peppery finish.

Draught@Hilpeä Hauki
Clear deep orange color, small steady white head. Fruity, apple, pear, Bretta-like tartness. Medium-bodied. Fruity, flowery hoppy, bitter, a bit tart flavor. Fruity American style saison.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2012
(Draught@Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki) Hazy amber with a smallish, lasting head. Citrus-aromatic nose with earthy saisony notes and aromatic, grapefruity hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, with pale maltiness, Belgian yeast, grapefruit and sourish lemon. Slight overall harshness is present. Medium to full body, soft CO2, reasonably refreshing palate. Ok, but could be better with less hops :).

Case (247) - GERMANY - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a clear pale orange with small white head. Aroma of very grassy, freshly cut grass and flowers, like a saison. Taste is more grass, citrus hops, grapefruit, slight bit of pepper, bitter-sweet with a nice dry finish. It’s like a stronger, hoppier saison. I could drink a lot of this.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Hazy orange pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is lemon, grassy hops and a little floral. Lemon, earthy must and hops. Kind of hoppy to be a true saison.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle. Orange amber with big, frothy, sudsy, small bubbled white head. Nose is grapefruit up front, lemon, dry chard, a little soapy. Okay flavor, a little conflicted, but not too extreme in any one flavor profile which is a good thing. Definitely nothing close to a saison, though. Well maybe an American one. and what country am i in? sorry i forget sometimes.

Petronius (55) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Draught. Like someone has mentioned, this is indeed more of a double saison with xtra hops. Delicious.

Patrickctenchi (3847) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Pours yellow with a huge, slightly off-white head...a loooong lasting head.... Scent is spicy...cloves,banana. Flavour is unexpected bitter with spice and fruity/hoppiness....dry. A surprising and different offering...nose says saison, mouth says IPA.... Rather good.
