Kr1zz (261) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle bought at Geers in Oostakker. Pours cloudy dark orange with spices floating around and a dark white medium head. Medium carbonation. Nose: excotic fruits, hops, caramel hints, citrus, grapefruit. Taste: malts, hay and yeast pops up combined with hints of grapefruit and citrus. Peppery flavour with a strong bitter and dry aftertaste. Not as sweet in taste as in the smell of it.

BlackHaddock (4978) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
33cl bottle: my third Belgian beer on a mini-tasting session with myself at home on 5th Aug 2015. Poured slowly into a Westmalle chalice, one of my favourite Belgian beer glasses (I did allow the sediment to leave the bottle). Misty rather than cloudy, the dull golden body looked fine, on top a thin white sheet and collar of tight bubbles, both of which stayed around for the whole drink. Yeasty nose with a semi-sweet promise within the farmyard esters I picked up. Tastes drier and more sour than the aroma hinted at, a bitter bite to the flavourings too. Grapefruit and lemon rule the mouthfeel with a roughness in the mix too, pithy, peel like qualities abound. Decent: cheers Marcus, my mate in Luxembourg.

Pyrmir (4279) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
750 ml bottle, thanks TimVim! Hazy golden with white head. Aroma strange: bitter hops, grain, dank fruits, rye. Taste is grainy, rich, some rye, grain, fruit and hops with high bitterness. Strangely likeable

ninecats (334) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle 75cl. Hazy golden/copper, big white head that dissipates fairly quick leaving lots of lacings. Fairly neutral and floral nose for a saison, citrus, sweet, lime. Taste is floral at first, medium bitter with clear hoppy touch, elder-flower, ends bitter. Light to medium body, medium carbo. A bit simple new-world-hoppy for me, not the rustic citrus hayish complexity I usually prefer in a saison. Still, good drinkability and balance.

ruigo (1622) - PORTUGAL - JUL 1, 2015
33cl bottle. Hazy orangish colour with a generous white head. Yeast, citrus and grassy aroma. Average to high carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter with fruity notes and a nice bitterness at the finish. Overall, a good beer.

@ Stordirren 15-6-7: ganska tydlig doft av tuttifrutti och korn. Smaken är ganska torr, men frisk och mycket lätt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
