tommann (3389) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a very hazy light gold with a large head. Aroma is pineapple, basil and a touch of bread. Taste is sweet, with funky basil to start. Pissy finish. Cracking.

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

Leighton (18744) - 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.

jamestulloch (3502) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Aroma: Pungent aroma of freshly cut grapefruit, lemon and orange sherbet.

Appearance: Murky pale golden body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Large head that looks like whipped egg whites. Lively lacing. Excellent carbonation.

Taste: Sharp lemon, zesty grapefruit flavour and a hint of yeast. Delicious balance between the sweet yeast and the bitter, citric hop.

Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Average carbonation fizz.

Overall: A fantastic Saison - a fantastic hop - a fantastic brewery.

Big fizzy longlasting head. Aroma is very fresh, lots of grapefruit, yeast, passion fruit, hay, dried fruits. Taste is fresh fruity, tropical fruits, grass, hay, wood, citrus peel. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Smells grrrrreat. Thick, smooth haziness. Has a hard dryness to the end, like the taste in your throat after rinsing the vomit from your gob. But in a good way. Really fruity. Like a lot-ot-ot-ot.

Bootle from Bambuni- 31st May 2013. You can smell the citra as soon as you pop the cap. Glowing golden colour with decent head retention. Full dry mouthfeel. Loads of sweet citrus flavours that give way to the yeast but not immediately (at first I thought this tasted like a pale ale). Strong hay elements in the backed. Wasn't convinced on first couple of mouthfuls but my mind very definitely changed as time went on. Another winner from Partizan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Niall73 (2419) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottled 2/5/13. 7.3%. Hazy orange/yellow with a fluffy white head. Very nice aroma - hoppy with tropical fruits like mango and passion fruit alongside a lemony citrus scent and a slightly yeasty edge. Fairly light and fizzy feel. Lovely flavour, Complex yet dedicate. The tropical fruits are there but not in a big way, there’s also a slight hint of smokiness, a piney taste with orange and lemon with a nice clean bitter finish. Very nice.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle purchased from the brewery. The pour’s hazy gold with a tight white head. The aroma’s orange peel, lemon zest, earthy saison yeast, white grapes. Floral hoppy aromas, some white pepper. The taste is bright lemon, herbal hops. Sherbet. Spice rack, more pepper. Marshmallow. Light mineral on the finish. Really well-rounded, tasty stuff. Light body, zippy mouthfeel. Overall, a great saison. One of Partizan’s best beers yet.

Yup. One of Partizan’s best. Saisons they can do no problem at all. Add citra and I’m very happy. Blog. Do it.
