olio (8453) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2016
75 cl bottle. Bottled on 30.07.2015.
Pours rose hip red color with a large head. Apricot, rose hip and orange on the nose, herbs and some yeast too. Flavor is rather sweet, apricot, grapefruits, mango, even some water melon and spices. Spice kick is decent. Refreshing if you can say that about a beer like this.

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2016
75 cl bottle @ home, bottled 30.07.2015
Aroma is rather typical for a grassroots/HF saison with earthy tones, grapefruit, fruity yeast and mild apricot tones. Also urinal cake. Flavour has grapefruit juice, some funky yeast, fruity notes and earthy tones. Nice tartness here, an American sour-n-tart saison on the better side. There’s not that much white wine notes typical of this style – which is a good thing!

DrSilverworm (9441) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2016
750ml bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Kind of pink red color, mostly hazy. Ring of white head. Nice floral, some creme, bit of cherry. Moderate sour taste, kind of dry. Light tangy sweet. Medium-plus body. Kind of effervescent, sort of crisp, lighter carbonation. Mild slick body, then dry finish. A pleasant tart hibiscus saison. Some nice mild lemon citric brightens things up. Not much complexity aside from the adjuncts, but really pleasant, still. Nice lemon/hibiscus beer.

Boutip (5464) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle: Poured alight reddish color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of oak and cherry with some clearly identifiable hibiscus notes. Taste is a mix of oak and cherry notes with quite a bit of hibiscus with some light tart notes and some acidity. Body is about average with good carbonation. Another solid offering from this brewer with great balance between the different flavours.

gunnar (7121) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2016
On tap at ØST, Stavanger. Pours almost clear glowing red/amber with a big creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, with melons, some lemon and light funk. Weak sweet taste with tarty fruits for balance, nice lingering dry finish with notes of flowers and herbs, lively carbonated, very clean saison with a good balance, hit the spot for me.
