Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
The beer is hazy and golden with a thick, white head. The aroma offers lemons, farmhouse funk, grape skins. Mild acidity with some citrus notes, floral and herbal notes as well. Light to medium in body. A touch of earth and some lemon rind counter a mild sweetness. Tasty.

Bottle thanks to Tuck. Pours a cloudy amber with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is a earthy malt and toast. Medium mouthfeel with tart citrus, bready malt, light dry finish. Very good.

PotjeBier (1694) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2014
750 ml bottle shared with JulienHuxley, Borresteijn & caesar @ Julien’s Klein Maar Fijn tasting. Amber color, (very) cloudy, murky. No head. Aroma’s: sour, brett. Flavor: sour, with a light bitterness. Light bodied. Finish is dry, light bitter. No idea why this is called saison. Not so pleasant, alas.

caesar (5129) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2014
Bottled thx to Julien @ Julien’s neighbour is a metalhead according to Rob-tasting, small sample. Hazy amber color, medium off-white head. Aroma of peppery yeast, citrus, caramel, cookie. Slight sweet, bit dry, soft bitterness. Bit strange combination of flavors, not perfectly balanced. Ok stuff.

Borresteijn (4684) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2014
75cl Bottle, tfs JulienHuxley! Hazy light-amber colour, white head. Aroma is light sour, Brettanomyces, funk, apples, yeast, some caramel, reminded me of a really good Orval. Flavour is a lot more sour, lemons, funk, hay, yeast, hint of toast and caramel, tart lemony finish. Light-bodied, firm carbonation. Nice. Wouldn’t call this a saison though.

cpetrone84 (1380) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Pour is slightly hazed golden amber with a foamy white head. Nose has lots of farmhouse yeast notes with fruity esters. Some lemon and white grape skins. Hints of caramel malt play in faintly. Taste is a bit more sweet, farmhouse yeast up front, soft body, caramel and sweet esters. Fruity and lemony notes play in back with moderate carb and a semi dry finish. Stronger farmhouse notes come out as it warms giving a nice balance and depth.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2014
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy amber-orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of herbal, grass, citrus, florals, and barnyard. Flavor of citrus, white grape, florals, earthiness, brett, and caramel with a dry finish.

MrChopin (3288) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
hazy gold, thin white head. Tons of dusty hay, light plastics and wet earth. Soft carbonation allows hay and bark to coexist across front, mid dryer and grainier before citric and light plastic finish, sticky but thin and without enough balance.
