COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editor’s note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, - FEB 19, 2010
75cl at Pikkulintu. Hazy light golden, a tad frothy pale head. Nose has belgian yeast, little brettiness, faint Orval style methol hop/brett mix, faint chalk. Flavor has plenty pale malt sweetness, slightly bretty and cellary yeast, little minty hops and sweet strawberry, faint citric acid, feels very under attenuated. Medium bodied, yeasty palate with low carbonation. I’m liking the modest nose, but it’s just not crisp nor refreshing at all, got pretty sickly after a while.

10/16/2014. On tap at the brewery. Light brown with a tan head. Malty, caramel, yeasty and fruity. All in near perfect harmony. Light tartness with hints of oak. So complex and enjoyable.

Väldigt bra. Viss syrlighet och citrus men framför allt riktigt bra balans i smaken och kroppen. Högt högt vitt skum.

Cunningham (4638) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Holy Madonna. This beer is just in perfect balance with my flavoring. Brought me into nirvana and perfect harmony. Could not ask for more from a Saison. Lovely cloudy yellow color. Smooth perfect citric, yeast, mild spicy and fruity. The only problem is. Where do I get another one….

"pours golden with a tight white head. aroma is ok...a little barnyard, Belgian yeast, light fruits and light hops. the flavor and feel, which started out average or just above, really grew on me as i drank and the bitter hops blended quite nicely with the relatively tame but flavorful Belgian clove, tart fruit and funky aspects of the beer. not one i’ll likely go back to soon, but not bad either."

Torrefacto (575) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2014
Color cobrizo turbio con espuma blanca ligera. Aromas de fruta amarilla, pan y levadura, ligero toque cítrico. Cuerpo medio, afrutada y dulce de inicio, con un toque ácido que va creciendo. El final es seco. Execelente.

Vignale (2105) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
Flaska från SB. en söt fruktig stor saison. Saisonjäst, persikor, gula hallon, örtig, frisk lätt touch av brett. Det örtiga, blommiga och fruktiga gifter sig riktigt bra.

thiesen (177) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle at Ølbaren. Spicy, sharp, round and sweet. Very complex and balanced saison. Maybe a bit too much alcohol for my taste. It's very apparent in taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
