Í Vallóníu, Frćnskumćlandi hluta Belgíu, fćddist bjórstíll sem gjarnan er kallađur Saison eđa "árstíđ". Bjórinn var bruggađur á sveitabćjum handa verkafólki á sumrin. Skađi sćkir innblástur í ţennan stíl. Viđ bruggunina á Skađa er bćtt rúg og íslenskri ćtihvönn, sem ýtir undir ţann kryddkarakter sem einkennir stílinn.

FatPhil (14170) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2016
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Orangey, large tight head. Simple belgian ale aroma, a bit like a leffe, something on the grungy side of the genre, but without the quite as much sweetness as leffe. Taste similar, quite grungy, a bit of iron and liver, a little sweet. Full palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish a bit metallic and dirty. Not a saison by any stretch of the imagination. Belgian yeast definititey dominating, but this is just a dirty leffe, which is different from a saison. Does vaguely covery the alcohol.

0,33L bottle, BB 09.06.18 (from Koht). Pours dark amber with whiteish beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, malt, belgian yeast, spices, fruits, slight butter. Flavor is sweet and bitter, malt, spices, fresh fruits, sugar. Finish is burnt sugar and dry. Carbonation is on the high side. Overall: ok-ish belgian strong ale, but no sign of saison (or "farmhouse ale" as label claims) .

vami (380) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 15, 2016
High carbonation, big white head, amber color. Aroma is of light citrus, mild spice and fruits. Texture is slightly oily and aftertaste is quite crisp with pronounced alcoholic bitterness. Taste is bittersweet, but the bitterness is more from alcohol than hops. Carbonation increases mouthfeel. Too much caramel.
