metalspice (356) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2015
Uklart aprikosfarget med lavt, kompakt skum. Lukt av gress, karamell, knekkebrød og noe pepper. Gress følger i smaken sammen litt brøddeig. Lett bitterhet mot slutten. Behagelig og tykk munnfølelse.

Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - APR 26, 2015
Norwegian take on the reviving saison style, with medium thick, irregular, cream white head with decent retention; colour is a deep and lightly hazy ’old gold’ with vivid sparkling, more ochre-like and completely cloudy with deposit. Pleasant fruity and slightly ’barnyard’ aroma of red apple, peach, banana, starfruit, sourdough, hay, orange peel, white wine, yoghurt and chamomille. Vivid fruitiness in the onset, apple and peach with a light citrus touch, crisp and refreshing, medium carbonation, soft bready pale malt sweetishness, spicy yeastiness as in any Belgian saison, tingling and supple mouthfeel, finishing with a pleasantly lingering malt sweetness paired with a good dosis of leafy and lightly peppery, even somewhat quinine-like, ’deep’ hop bitterness, as well as a hint of warming, wine-like alcohol. Nice and a very ’typical’ saison indeed.

mcberko (10071) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
500mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out Belgian farmhouse yeast and a nice doughy quality. Flavour is along the same lines, with farmhouse yeast, dough and cereal notes. Super fresh and doughy, with a lovely yeasty quality. Excellent.

Ikke så mye å si om denne, annet enn at det er en ganske god og frisk øl. Hipp hipp hopp! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Kaapse brouwers. Clear straw with short lasting white head. Lemon, light leaves, herbs, peppery, sweat, fresh cheese, lots of fruits. Medium bodied, slightly sweet with some tartness all the way through. Ok saison.

Hammy78 (894) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a yellow/ gold/ copper, with about a half finger of pure white head, some minor lines of lace. Nose is spot on for style, spice, a touch of funk, a bit of the citrus you find with some euro wheat beers. Tastes sweet, wheaty, citrus and a touch of bitterness from the hops. The spice is hard to place completely, but I do get some peppercorn. Quite sessionable.

the aroma is malty with hints of flowers, herbs, straw and citrus... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of orange, herbs and spices... smooth hoppy bitterness... dry, sweet and bitter aftertaste... good saison...
