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.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2012
This beer is a cloudy yellow color with a very thick and foamy white head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with a somewhat soft texture and flavors of sweet citrus, yeast, pale malt and a touch of floral hops. The finish is fruity with a yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - AUG 23, 2012
Difficult to judge from the one brewed in Aussie - both are equally fruity, punchy and quite exquisite. A crisp, hoppy dry finish completes what is a satisfying and drinkable collab. Clean and smooth body.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Draught at Copenhagen Ølfestival 2012. Hazy golden color. Strong citrus and lemon grass aroma. Dry clovey, lemony and bitter flavor with with bitter orange and herbal chamomile. Clovey spiciness and hop are not a perfect match here but still this is fairly nice refreshing dry ale.

pineypower (2547) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours out a slightly hazy light golden color with a huge, pillowy white head. Aroma is of fruity saison yeast, nice citrus bitterness. and mild funk. Taste is clean, some nice citrus notes, melon, light funk, dry fruity yeast and a nice lingering bitterness on the finish. Really liked this one.

50 cl. bottle split with Belgbeergeek // very lightly hazy golden with a creamy white head // aroma is more round & mellow than harsh American hops, citra, zesty, yeast (light white bread), esters, spices, spunky // lightly sparkling zest taste, fruity, saison yeast, citra, mellow zest & lemon, fruity esters, light touch of herbs & hay, light grass ending // body is easygoing, lighter // I do feel like this is a good blend of the style, tasted oddly enough almost like a blend of the Duvel Citra & Struise Catso we tried before, there you go, India Saison

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2012
50cl bottle from HopDuvel, batch 746, BB 06/01/2017. Dorée/orangée, col blanc. Arôme fruité et houblonné pointe d’agrumes surtout dans le citronné. Fin bouquet de levure dans le style belge laissant une touche d’épice, côté tropical dans l’usage des houblons allant vers du Nelson. Palais est sec avec ici le mélange idéal des styles entre saison belge et ce côté IPA.Je retrouve ce profile de bouche typique par la levure cela est agrémenté par un fruité allant dans des tons tropicaux et de style raisin blanc et plus traditionnel càd noble européen conférant un mélange entre fruité et fleuri. Le touche est agrémenté de malt qui ne dérange pas la combinaison subtile des deux styles. Légère, facile à boire.

Bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. Hazy golden/apricot color, nice lasting offwhite head. Hoppy fruity floral aroma, yeasty spicy, grapes, apricot, bready notes, perfume, grapefruit, some caramel. Hoppy floral flavor, perfume, earthy, yeasty, bready notes, herbal, soap, grapefruit, pepper, some pine. Interesting mix of styles, but I miss some of the best things from both styles. Fruity grassy finish with pepper and floral notes.

cardofab (229) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - AUG 7, 2012
Eccezionale birra che riesce ad essere in ogni aspetto sorprendente, sia al naso per l’intense note fruttate e luppolate, sia al palato dove ci sono i richiami allo stile belga con spiccate note di pompelmo rosa ed un bel finale amaro.
