_angst_ (2564) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours tiny hazy golden with a frothy offwhite head that leaves lots of soapy trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is estery and phenolic with biscuits, baked pears, marzipan, white pepper corns, hay, lemon zest and banana bread. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter, estery and tiny phenolic with oatmeal cookies, hay, banana bread, pear skins, caramelized almonds, cereal, white pepper corns, leather, orange zest, lemon zest and dry soil. Mouthfeel is sparkling, lightly dry, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is slightly bitter, slightly estery and tiny phenolic with cereal, banana bread, hay, white pepper corns, pear skins, dry wood, orange zest and lemon zest. Bit cloying with banana esters. good, but would have preferred something more refreshing…

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Golden straw pour wispy white head, big bubbles. Great aroma wafting from the glass of white fruits, apple, grape must, lemon, lime, cracker, belgian yeast backbone. Sweet, fruity flavor bursting on the tongue, no alcohol detectable. This is an amazing saison. If I have one criticism its that I think it could be just a little dryer, but great nonetheless.

SirLimpsalot (2061) - SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014
@Basunen: ganska diskret doft. Små kryddiga toner. Smaken är ok men en aning söt, annars det vanliga man förväntar av en saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Smak och doft av humle, jäst, hö, gräs, örter, gröna vindruvor med toner av äpple. Lagom söt, fruktig, rund och len med fin beska.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
Flaska från SB. Gyllenfärgad, klar, lågt vitt skum. Doft och smak av jäst, blommor, citrus, säd, gröna druvor, gula russin, chardonnay, kryddor. En uppsötade lite starkare saison med mycket vitvinskaraktär. Trevlig, om än inte riktigt min typ av saison. Funkade utmärkt till vit fisk.
