SinH4 (162) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Fruity, dry and a bit of spicy yeasts. Less foam than the Lager and American Ale ones. The best one so far, but let’s see how the bretts turn out.

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Was my favorite of the 4 before getting to the wild ones. Nicely fruity and dry, with hints of spice and hops. Definitely the easiest drinking of the bunch, while still complex. 7.5’s to aroma and flavor if I could."

HammerTroll (532) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2014
Hazy light brown color, small white head. Big hoppy aroma, orange, some sugar, honey, floral notes, citrus, yeast, hints of tropical fruits. Long bittersweet finish with traces of brown sugar. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy. This is great!

Valgreen (711) - DENMARK - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle @ Home. Clear orange, small white head, some lacing. Aroma and taste, quite similar to the American ale one, with the taste slightly acidic. A little spicy/peppery.

rockana (273) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours cloudy brownish with small off white head. Sweet hoppy nose. Watery texture. Bitterish. A hint of pleasant citrusy sour. A bit herbal. Some honey in aftertaste. Good one.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Venerables. Copper coloured with a medium sized light beige head. Nose is hoppy, soft creamy and fruity. Sweet candied fruits and graprefruits, some light maltiness. Flavour is light malty, same fruitiness as in the aroma, some soft creamy notes, a bit spicy. Light hoppy, with candy, tropical fruits. A soft spicyness of the saison yeast to round it off. A lovely, in fact, pretty stunning beer. Nice surprise.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Lowenbrau (2106) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 1, 2014
330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 31-05-2014.
In short: an average saison.
Pours some hazy dark gold with really frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Citrusy, sour aromas. Light body, average to high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is moderate sour, some cirusy, fruity, with a more into the sweet side finish, but still sourness noticeable. Enjoyable.
