Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours lightly hazy yellow-gold, fairly effervescent, with a moderate, frothy white head. The nose definitely holds some funky brett, a bit of poo, some tangy tangerine. Light sweet flavor with dry funk, some mellow grassy bitterness, drying tangerine, hints of grapefruit, a bit of manure, some white grapes. Light to medium bodied with average to lively, massaging carbonation. Somewhat dry to finish, mildly warming, more poo, light grassy bitterness, grapefruit and tangerine, some alcohol, subtle grass and minerals. Great stuff, quite dynamic and punchy. Good one.

harrisoni (13598) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from the brewery drank at home. Hazy cloudy gold with lasting white head. Big tangerine citrusy citra aroma with some funky yeast. More dirty and funky in the mouth with the citra making a big impact on the finish with bitterness and tangerine and Satsuma. Just a touch of conflict between the yeast and the hops I think produces a slight rubber flavour. But it is slight. So I like the aroma, but that touch of funky rubber is not quite my thing.

Idiosynkrasie (3734) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Fruity, citrusy aroma, lemon, orange, amngo, spicy yeasty overtones, bretty echoes, some floral notes. Taste is initially fruity, citrusy, tropical fruit, later more yeasty, minimally spicy, hints of piss; still with moderately sweet fruity background.

As it was my birthday that day I thought I’d treat myself to this 330ml beer at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Stupidly I didn’t ask the landlord the price before he shushed it open. SIX FUCKING QUID!!! The greedy scumbag has made more than double his money, shame on him!! Anyway, pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Lots of citrus in the aroma with a splash of wet moss. Citrus, apricot and pineapple flavour. Quite a fruity number. Tasty.

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle from Beer Hive, Edinburgh [090613]
Amber, hazy, big frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma - big fruity grapefruit hop, grapefruit zest, lemon, sharp zest, tropical fruits, mango, complex citrus fruits, bit of yeast, pungent very intense fruity nose, so fresh, fantastic fruity aroma
Taste - tangy citrus, grapefruit, smooth cereal malt, dab of yeast, sweet tangy zesty citrus, juicy citrus, alcohol well hidden, really good saison, works well with the huge amount of citrus
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, very tangy palate. Finish as main flavour, superb citrus fruity linger
Overall - Stunning beer - the aroma nearly hit a 10 for me

mR_fr0g (2921) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle at the brewery. Translucent golden orange big persistent fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon rind, spicy peppercorns and breast dough malt. Flavours of mineral, lemon, bread. The finish is bone dry. Very well attenuated. Some prickly spicy flavours in the finish. Very good indeed.

esp0r (1973) - NORWAY - JUN 9, 2013
Sample at Haand Festival 2013
Yellow hazy, big white head. Smells of citrus, mango, tropical fruits, yeast esters. Moderate sweet, fruity, citrus. Medium bitter, nice resins. A very nice and drinkable saison with american hops

chimpgibbon (301) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
It’s a tangerine beer! Weird good or bad though? A real surprise in terms of its sweetness on the front tempered by its satisfyingly bitter finish. Unlike any saison or citra pa i’ve ever had! The jury’s still out for me!

Scopey (6713) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle from Partisan. It pours cloudy golden with a thick white head. The nose is full of tropical fruit...orange peach, apricot, as well as a touch of spice, yoghurt and hay. The taste is zesty orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, earth, straw, spice, touch of alcohol and decent bitterness with a dry, citric finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Delicious hopped-up saison. Full of vibrant citrus flavours. Yum.

abemorsten (2682) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
Sampler at Haandøl 2013. Muddy yellow golden body with a fingerthick white head. Wonderful fresh citrus hops on the nose, especially the first minute or so. Combined with the spicy saison yeast aromas it is truly delightful. Medium to full bodied and carbonated wee heavy, the drink is aromatic and spicy with some glandular gooseberry notes present.
