COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is our version of a strong palish Belgian Saison. We have chosen to give this beer a pale and light profile and let the yeast display its full spicy flavors. We have also added some coriander for more complexity. This will develop some tartness given the time.

Very nice stuff, delicate malt, delicate floral hops, delicate mango and peach esters, delicate peppery zing from the yeast or the hops or both, nice and dry, bitter enough and well carbed - just a bit soapy from the heavy handed coriander addition.

PapaVillum (677) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2015
40 cl på fad, 7,5 % ABV, nydt på TAP10 på Østerbrogade CPH Ø., 14. august 2015. Honningfarvet og filtreret norsk Saison med ungefär 1 cm offwhite skumkrone. Aromaen er præget af den tilsatte og krydrede gær. Let sur, og en smule sød. Grapefrugt og røde sommerbær. Gærnuancer af bondegård. Dejlig krydret smag af koriander. Middelstor bitterhed, let sødme og let syrlig. Dejlig balance idet sødmen holder bitterheden i tilpas skak. Fin mellemstor krop og frisk mundfølelse qua en karbonering på et medium niveau. Konsistensen er glat, og eftersmagen bittersød med overvægt på det bitre. Giver associationer i retning af noget Tripel-møder-noget-mere-humlet, og det er godt! Velsmagende.

Bottle. Aroma Belgian, kind of barnyardy, spicy saisony. Hazy yellow colour. Taste is quite soft, pleasant. A true blonde, easily drinkable, very nicely balanced. Highly carbonated. Very good.

Erzengel (5638) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2015
Many thanks to Cunningham! Great intense citrus in the nose. The beer starts fruity and very fresh, mild-light in aroma, very refreshing. All the aroma is ver subtle and fine, very great! The yeast is interesting mild-dry, like a cross between Witbier and Belgium-Ale yeast. Very smooth and soft. The aftertaste is subtle and deep, no bitterness there, round with yeasty-sweetish hints and the lemon-zest in the background. The coriander is there with its herbal hints, great mélange, fantastic!

Lukasmh (610) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with small white head and some yeast sediment. Aroma has yeast, bubblegum, banana, sweet wheat, eatery and only slight spices. Reminiscent of canned pear. Taste is equally juicy and canned pear. wheat, sweet, slight freshness, medium body and low carbonation. Light bitter finish with some spices.

Azazello (107) - POLAND - JUN 1, 2015
Piwo w szkle prezentuje się niezwykle ładnie, ale złocista opalizująca barwa nie wieńczy się nawet najmniejszą pianą, co nieco burzy wrażenie wizualne. Ale zapach... Mmmm... Delikatna kolendra miesza się z mocno cytrusowymi akcentami, lekką przyprawowością oraz nutą ziołową. W smaku miękka słodowość wsparta jest przyjemnie gryzącymi przyprawami, owocami i drożdżowym charakterem. Piwo jest całkiem mocne (7,5%), ale doskonale zbalansowane i zwyczajnie pijalne. Gdybym wcześniej pił takie saisony, to nigdy bym nie powiedział, że "nie jestem ich fanem". To najlepszy przedstawiciel tego stylu, jaki trafił do mej paszczy.
