One of our most refreshing brews, made for those hot summer days, but satisfying year ’round. Recommended serving temperature 8°C/45°F. Goes well with seafood, particularly oysters.

Ingredients: Wheat and lager malt; East Kent Goldings and Crystal hops; Belgian ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

14°P, 25 IBU, 6.5 ABV.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2007
Aroma of soap, spices, yeast and ginger. Looks like mead, but with a big thick head. Taste like my first batch of home-made beer. Taste actually quite fresh but has a very dominant taste. Not really in my liking.

Bottle from beerbuzzmontreal. Thanks! Aroma of yeast, light spices, and bread. Hazy golden color. Medium palate. Lots of caramel malt and yeast start off the taste with some light spices and citrus to finish the job.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2007
Bottle (500ml). Via trade with Boutip. Cloudy, thick-looking yellow with an amber tinge, smallish fizzy white head. Pungent spice and yeast aroma, plenty of sweet fruit/hard candy malt body. Taste is an interesting mix - saison spice and yeast, hefe body and maltiness, belgian wit life, with extra body and more floral hop and alcohol than I’d expect in any of those styles. Thick, syrupy body, good carbonation, impressive thick spice in the linger. Solid, beefy beer - thanks, Phil!

Glouglouburp (5960) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2012 In short: A classic style blond Saison. Very good
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed very fresh the day after purchase Norway Vinmonopolet store. Drank sitting on the Preikestolen, try to beat that you motherf**kers!!!
The look: Cloudy yellow-blond body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: Pleasant rustic yeast nose true to the style. Lively mouthfeel that is both fluffy and doughy. Rustic yeast, lemon pie with meringue, some oranges, a light spicy twist (coriander-ish). Leafy hops meet the yeast to create a finish that I would describe as fruity bitterness, like chewing on orange peels. Refreshing Saison. That beer has changed since the first time I had it many years ago, even the color is now paler than it used to be. Very good beer. Ok, so Norwegians know more about Saisons than just winter.

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2007
(Bottle) Pours orange. Spicy, herb-ish aroma with coriander, clove and nutmeg. Light fruity with some apricot and orange peel. Some hints of dough like yeast. Spicy and light fruity flavour coriander, clove, nutmeg and white pepper. Light sweet and light citrusy bitter with notes of orange peel and a touch of lemon. A bit dryish. Medium body. My (Blursi) new favourite Saison.
