COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Saison is the hoppy, crisp and refreshing result of a north south collaboration. Classic Belgian malts and yeast, pungent Australian new hop varieties and clean Norwegian water. Served chilled and enjoy with cheeses and charcuterie. This product is bottle conditioned and has a slight sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

i am wary of light time sensitive styles from overseas. This one appears to stay in tact. Lots of fruit esters and a decent amount of hops in there. Pretty nice stuff. probably awesome at the source.

Mince, mousseuse, elle rappelle du jus de pêches tirant sur l’orangé. En nez, pommes, pêches, raisins verts, elle annonce de l’acidulé et du sucré. Bien amère et épicée, presque astringente, étonnamment ronde elle offre des arômes d’ananas, de mangues, son profil tropical se manifeste sur les papilles. Sèche, savoureuse et étonnamment complexe pour un exemple de ce style, elle est originale et parfaitement réussie.

tomekk1978 (406) - POLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Barwa: jasno złota, lekko zmętniona. Piana biała, umiarkowanej wielkości, drobno pęcherzykowa, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: dziki, kwaśny, z wyraźnym akcentem chmielowym (owocowo - cytrusowym). Do tego lekka nuta alkoholowa. Smak: umiarkowanie pełny, wyraźnie kwaskowy, wytrawny z wyczuwalną chmielową kontrą. Goryczka w okolicach średniej, nieco zalegająca. Wersja beczkowa.

Hazy orange with a large fluffy head. Aroma is orange peel, orange blossom, peach, grape must, spices. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, spicy and floral on the palate. Flavour is citrus zest, peppercorns, grape skins. Really tasty.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle purchased at Aficionado’s. Clear gold pour with a huge white head. Aroma of malt, earthy hop and some herb. Malty flavor with earthy hops, herbs and pine before an orangy finish.

Brandman (2055) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Hazy orange body, white huge head. Aroma has lots of pungent hoppiness, some grainy caramel and yeast. Pretty hopped for saison.. flavour is bit harsh, with all the bitterness. Very nice beer. Saison can’t be detected in this one but otherwise ok.

Stefanos (84) - POLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Light gold, thick but frothy white head, clear. Aroma is a mix of citrus and spices (pepper). Taste is bitter, bit sour, but perfectly balanced. Highly drinkable, nice choice for hot days.

Garrold (1078) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, pale straw colour. Big, bubbly, white head. Yeast. White pepper. Hint of strawberry. Hint of peach. Taste is fresh, yeasty and dry. Then the bitterness kicks in. This is like a Saison Dupont, with a slug of fresh grapefruit juice thrown in. Which can’t be a bad thing...

Bottiglia 50 cl, comprata da giangaspero frutta e verdura e bevuta a casa. Chiara con copiosa schiuma persistente. Saison iper luppolata. A tratti eccessiva. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold
