(Bottle BB 17/04/10) Fruity, flowery and malty aroma. Yellow (slightly reddish) colour hazy (murky after sedimentation poured in) and small, white head with fair lacing. Fruity (lemon, orange), malty, yeasty (after sedimentation poured in) and slightly bitter flavour. Lively carbonated, slightly sticky and medium to full-bodied palate with a hint of alcohol. My first saison! 21/06/07

33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A manageable, cloudy pale amber pour with a thin white head; yeasty aroma with some citrus peel; soft and spritzy in the mouth with a sour grainy body and some bitter orange zest; then a satisfying zesty warmth to the finish. Rather good.

0.5 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Cloudy yellow colour. Aroma has lactic acid. Taste is malty in a dry spicy way. Hops too. Refreshing with interesting taste. Didn’t have any oysters, but commercial deScription is probably right about the food pairings.

Interesting very strong scent on this Saison, and it seems Saisons are different depending on the brewery. Rich smell and taste from a brass yellow color. Smooth texture with light foam.

Marstonlad (729) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2016
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a big frothy white head. The aroma features citrus fruitiness, herbal spiciness and Belgian style yeastiness with underlying pale maltiness. Taste is dryish, crisp and fairly malty; citrus, apple, grain and herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, smooth and average in carbonation. Solid saison.
