rumproasts (4765) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2016
bottle. Hazy straw with three finger head. Extremely bland saison. I don’t know if this is just too old at this point, but it’s just some light sweet graininess with a dull bitter finish. Very little yeast flavor, and no discernable funk. I was quite underwhelmed by this one.

jukkar (104) - FINLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle 25cl. Aroma is yeasty, nothing special there. As the beer is non filtered, it is very cloudy. Color is golden. Minimal head. Taste is sweet and lightly sour. Beer is quite fizzy, finish is short, texture is slightly creamy. This is drinkable but not really my favorite because taste was too sweet.

Garrold (3915) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
750ml bottle from Mig’s Wines, Brussels. Cloudy, orange gold. Big, rocky, thick, bubbly, lasting, creamy white head. Looks just about perfect. Nose has barley sugar sweets. Custard malts. Flora. Taste is buttery, grainy sweet. Light bitter. Soft, foamy, smooth palate. Finishes a tad sweet, with minimal bitterness. Smells good. Looks great. A bit sweet. But £2.60 a bottle!
