Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 31, 2013
In short: A semi-rustic blond Saison with tropical fruits, flowers and honey.
How: Tap at Vices & Versa, Montreal.
The look: Cloudy blonde topped by a large white head with good retention leaving a lot of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is bright and vibrant with tropical fruits, rustic countryside character, honey flowers. Taste has honeyed cereals, plenty of fresh tropical fruits, freshly cut wheat and hay, flower petals. Low sweetness sensation despite the honey flavor. Lots of tickling hard bubbles. Refreshing beer. Very good beer even if I prefer their dryer more rustic Saison Du Tracteur, actually I thought Mellifera tasted a bit like a honeyed version of Saison Du Tracteur. A nice honey Saison named after a species of honey bee, and I think my father must have messed up our "bees deposit pollen in flowers" sex talk when I was a kid because I can’t drink a honey beer without getting horny.

mile (3634) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and sourness, light floral fruitiness and faint honey, light citrus and faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, faint sourness, some caramel and faint floral fruitiness with faint honey, light citrus. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, faint sourness and light caramel with faint floral fruitiness, light citrus and hoppyness. Sweetish saison for the meek. Could really use more bitterness and spiciness.

PhillyCraft (4765) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Sample at Bainbridge during their 3rd Anniversary. Golden orange with smaller head. Notes of plum, pear, and Belgian yeast/spice. Wish it was easier going and more tart without all the heavy and warming Belgian aspects.

Lilja (2343) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. Smak och doft av vete, honung, blommor, gräs, laktos och örter. Frisk och lätt syrlig, lagom sötma, fina smaker i välblanserad kombination. Torr, lätt beska och kolsyra.

Vignale (2852) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. Gyllengul och riktigt disig med högt vitt skum. Fin vete/laktosyrlig doft med honung, blommor, citrus. Frisk och lätt syrlig, nyanserad och relativt komplex för att vara ett lättare öl. När tempen stiger märk en funkig stallton också bättre, lätt sötma med lite honungskaka, blommig citrus. Så gott, så välgjort. Ett litet mästerverk.

rosenbergh (9508) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
375 ml bottle. Thanks to Timo A! Clear pale golden color with a tiny head. Honey sweetness, citrus, malt and some lagery notes in the aroma. The flavor is sweetness, dried banana, malt and some honey. Saison? My ass... Sorry but this is a huge disappointment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nimbleprop (6654) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2015
750ml bottle pours a hazy deep gold with some cloudy, white head. Nose is quite herbal and estery, some cleaning fluid, passion fruit, lemon juice. Flavor is spicy, grassy, more cleaning fluid though. Very odd. Not sure what this is.
