daje (1858) - NORWAY - OCT 11, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, july 17th 2013. Unclear orange body, big white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, spice, perfume. Taste is nice and dry, with a nice combo of peach and citrus from the yeast together with the zesty and spicy yeast, works quite well. Refreshing bitter aftertaste.

stefannilssons (1300) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2013
Det här var en syrlig och bitter sak med mycket smak av grapefrukt. Kroppen var i det tunnaste laget och någon balans var det inte att tala om.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1326) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2013
6.4% a mellow amber gold with a fizzy head of foam. The aroma is pretty strong, fruity, grape, estery-pretty nice. The flavor is unbalanced, bitter, a bit fruity but not as funky or spicy as I expected. As it warmed up some saison type sourness and flavor started to come through.  A decent beer.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of drowland. Thanks Danny! Pours a murky darkish orange appearance with a spidery off white head. Somewhat spicy, white pepper, a bit herbal, toasted caramel malty aroma. Somewhat tangy/orange fruity, toasted malty, light cracker, a bit funky, slightly herbal bitter hoppy flavor. Ok.

Vignale (1797) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2013
Flaska från BW i Köpenhamn. Orange, lätt disig vätska med ganska lågt skum. Doften är en korsning av en IPA och en saison. Caramell, söt citrusfruktig humle, men också saisonjästens jordiga örtighet och friska syrlighet. Ingen dum kombo. I smaken märks saison karaktären mindre och den smakar mest lite platt IPA, ganska syrlig, med mycket citrus och lätt efterbeska. Helt okej som öl men ju så klart mest bryggd i verticalprovningssyfte.
