Ludwig (60) - USA - APR 10, 2003
Not as good as Ommegang, but a very good example of a Saison style brewed. Above average beer

Bottle from Systembolaget. Fruity and funky smell. Similar taste. Feels slight sour. Refreshing!

Ktwse (1484) - SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
Pours cloudy light orange amber with tall, foamy white head. Aroma of yeast, hay, wheat, honey, spices... Fairly standard fare, but good. Taste is initial peppery and spicy followed by honey sweet followed by slightly herbal finish. Body is medium to rich, creamy and full, with soft to average carbonation.

TheJestersBeer (1937) - SWEDEN - APR 16, 2014
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy, deep straw, with a white head. Spicy, complex, quite phenolic aroma, coves, yeast, citrus, wheat, earth. Dry, medium body and bitterness, creamy CO2. Spicy, phenolic taste, citrus, cloves, earth, hay, caramel, yeast. Quite complex, very well balanced. Very good. (2014-04-16)

Bottle at home. Lovely creamy, white head. Pale yellow. Predominantly bitter but with underlying yeasty fruitiness that develops as the beer warms up. Not bad.

PapaVillum (300) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 12, 2014
25 cl, flaske, 7,5 % ABV, gave fra Gert og Michele - tak! 12. april 2014. Ufiltreret honningfarvet økologisk belgisk ale med én fingers offwhite-farvet skumkrone. I næsen er der belgisk gær- og citrus-noter. Lidt honning. Overvejende bitter smag med lækker finish. Sødmen er medspiller og elementerne er i flot samspil. Alkoholvarme. Medium indhold af kulsyre. Dejlig øl!

Linnet (1030) - Umeå, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
Lovely Belgian yeasty funkiness paired with a bready and noticable malt prescence, enveloped in an assertive but laidback hoppiness softened by alcohol and herbal funkiness, in short a real quality brew.

beer_est_deus (512) - örebro, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
Lite dimmig/lätt grumlig och citron skals färgad med ett mycket stort , lätt gul färgat skum. Doft: Gräs, örter (bl.a. lite tulsi), lite peppar, belgo saison, billig päron cider, jäst. Smak: Gräs, över kokta grönsaker, örter, belgo saison, billig päron cider. Lite för gräsig och päron cider aktig.

SamTheBarrel (318) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2014
750ml green corked and caked bottle, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is hazy goldenrod yellow with particles, and a medium sized frothy white head, that when reduced left a little lacing. Aroma of pears, hay, banana, herbs and lemon peels. Flavours of pears, herbs, lemon peels, banana and spices. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a nice beer that I would classify as a Saison, because of the notable presence of spice and herbs in the flavour.
