lusikka (6027) - Tampere, - FEB 1, 2013
330 ml bottle @ Konttori, Tampere. Pours a cloudy orange copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of soapy citrus, grassy hops, lemon and grass. Flavour of grassy hops with floral notes, yeast, sweet fruits, harsh maltiness and some herbal notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Enjoyable.

Bullit (3970) - 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.

Lowenbrau (1881) - 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.

jjgmd (1367) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Last in the series of three we acquired, pours a burnt orange cooper color with a cream colored head.nose is grainy and grassy. Taste is grainy, grassy with no real outstanding flavor. By far the worst of the three I tried. Finish is bland and grainy. Quaff Score 6 / 10 , and I love saisons, huh ?

esox (1027) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Bottled. Amber, hazy beer. Lacy head. Pineapple, strawberry perfume and sugary orange nose with piney and polleny hops. Slightly bready but dry, sturdy maltiness. Dry, resiny bitter finish turns out to be slightly ashy with mineral bite. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Sticky aftertaste. Interesting trial, not a true Saison nor a pale ale.
