erickok (4918) - Leuven, - JAN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Strawberry sweetness, sweaty, caramel malts, mild yeast. Much sweeter aroma than your usual (good) Saison. Taste is pretty sweet at the start, with cherry notes and with a mild yeast undertone. Hops make a simple, classic bitterness, but certainly not very pronounced. Active bubbles, dimming the taste. Short yeast aftertaste. Not a saison and neither very good. Oh well.... (33cl bottle from Cave-Gambrinus)

Cristobal37 (625) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 27, 2016
Bottle with Kapusil. Hazy dirty blonde. Nice mellow saison. Very wet not dry finish as Ive come to expect from saisons. Carbonated nicely light hops light tartness. Finish isnt long bit flavors stick around mostly light hops. I like it, though not the best saison ever it’s enjoyable.

kapusil (1023) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 27, 2016
0.33l bottle. Hazy orabge body, huge white head. Aroma of bread, orange zest, pears and doughy yeast. Taste of bread, toast, lemon zest and earthy hops. The finish is quite hoppy. OK beer but doesn’t remind me of a saison.

SlackerMads (2615) - DENMARK - APR 24, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden with a large frothy off white head. Nose has dry flowers, minerals, metallic notes. Flavour has honey, hay, grain, syrup. Taste is sweet and mild sugary. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Too sweet and easy to forget.

Stuedmaster (344) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 23, 2016
33 cl bottle, cloudy gold pour with nice white head, good retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and herbs, earthy grains. Consistent with style, has a caramel richness and sour tang, well balanced and refreshing, would repeat.

Icedwarf (1101) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2016
Helder donkergeel bier met schuim. Smaak is heel licht friszuur en ietwat bitter. Niet echt bijzonder maar zeker niet slecht.

cervmagpt (569) - PORTUGAL - FEB 27, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 25B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L19022017. AROMA: medium_low intensity grainy-sweet malt aroma with a moderate fruity note (citric orange/lemony). There is a faint lactic-like sout aroma that just adds complexity. APPEARANCE: deep gold and translucent. very large white to off-white creamy head with very good retention. TASTE: initial malty-grainy sweet flavor with medium intensity, gaining a honey-like note. medium-low fruity notes of orange-like character. medium-low bitterness that lasts into a dry finish. hop flavor very faintly perceived as floral. PALATE: medium-low to low body with high carbonation and a very present dry finish. no astringency nor harshness. OVERALL: a very nice Saison with all the characteristics within the style, including a nice dry finish without being astringent nor harsh. the hops are very restrained, just adding a note of bitterness to balance the malt. maybe would be more complex with a bit more esters.

budedou (707) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - OCT 28, 2015
Hazy golden color, big white head. Sour aroma, no finish, high carbonation. Too ordinary and not good... (more a wit beer than a saison?)

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Turtles (1472) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2015
330ml bottle from Systembolaget, abv 5.4%. Hazy pale golden, large white head, requiring several pours into the glass. The aroma is mild, spices and yeast. Despite the large fizzy head is the liquid is not particularly highly carbonated. Sweet malty flavor, sugar, yeast and mild spices. Dry finish.
