Lubiere (9745) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
A hazed golden amber saison with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light cardboard notes, spices, OK. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with light creamy notes, a bit oxidized. Sampler at Battle of the Belgians at Jimmys 43.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. This is labelled Saison but I believe this is the correct entry. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a creamy, off white head. Pungent floral/potpourri, a bit citrusy, somewhat spicy, grassy aroma. Again pretty floral, spicy herbal, moderately bitter, bready yeasty, fairly dry flavor. Pretty solid.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big and slightly off-white foamy head. Yeasty, delicately bready malty and slightly citric and floral, but most of all herbal hoppy aroma. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Mildly malty base by Belgium standards with present hoppy notes, including fruity, slightly floral and herbal flavours; quite lingering hoppy and mildly malty finish. Likeable and sessionable Saison. 20.V.14

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
Tasty saison, nice spiciness. Head on golden yellow. From Lueken Liquours. Dry and significant carbonation, though I think somewhat past bottle’s "posted" due date.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2013 Highly bitter lemon pith, grass, wood oil astringency, bitter green leaves with a slightly unclean / laundry soap yeast presence. Basil and marijuana green leaf / herbal aroma, some alcohol noticed. Medium body, low carbonation, low sweetness (apparently), high bitterness. Mashed apple and pear esters seem to amplify this greenness. Bracing bittering in a lengthy finish becomes unenjoyable due to the astringent wood oil character. That said, it’s easy to just sip and not think about and it comes across as a decent beer then. But for a Belgian-made saison / hoppy golden ale? Doesn’t fit where I want it to.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2012
Huge, whipped-cream - like head, quite even and stable over (cold)hazed yellow- to orange-golden beer. Very slightly oppressive, grains- and (lightly toasted) breadnose. Later garden herbs and (more than) probably white candi sugar. Quite outspoken hoppy flavour, explosively surprising as this stands perpendicular on the nose. Bitter as it is, it is a quite welcome surprise, and satisfying. Quite smooth (terrible term, I know), creamy and yet well-carbonated feel; medium bodied; quite dry finish. Pretty darn’ good!

kevnic2008 (7575) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
Light strawish golden colour, thin white head. Quite high carbonation. Light bright crisp golden ale, soft mouthfeel, not especially spicy.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Slightly unclear golden color with a huge, quickly diminishing white head. Smell malts, slightly hops, slightly some fruits. Taste malts, lightly fruity, lightly hops, decent bitterness. Quite nice. Medium body and carbonation.
