29/XII/13 - 33cl bottle from De Bierloods / Zytholoog (Adegem) @ home - BB: 6/VII/12 (2013-1195)

Note: when I learned that this beer would be discontinued I tried in quite a few places to get a hold of it. Took me almost a year to find a bottle, and by then it was of course expired. Oh well...
Clear dark orange beer, fluffy aery white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: spicy, coriander, hay, bit sugary, candy syrup, caramel. MF: lots of carbon, medium to light body. TAste: little malty, sweet, grains, some citrus, bit spicy, coriander, caramel. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, caramel, orange peel, coriander, card board, but I’m willing to ignore that last part, because of the age.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2013
Ambrée claire, pétillance moyenne-forte à bulles fines, mousse abondante et persistante. Caramélisée, un peu aqueuse, un peu amère, un rien métallique, un peu sèche au palais. Une Saison bien moyenne...

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 13, 2013
From notes. Bottle. Hazy golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of hay, light bread, earthy citrus. Taste is earthy straw, dry finish. Not bad.

jgb9348 (4633) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Clear dark amber coloured body wit ha bit of a bronze glow and a tint of amber with a thin tan oily head. Aroma of alcohol, yeast, metal, hay and grass - strong and pungent. Medium-bodied; Super strong pungent yeast and alcohol flavours with a big hay and grassy flavour at first and a big noticeable bit of grapes, cherries and medicine right afterwards. Aftertaste shows relatively pungent flavours with the hay, grass, medicine and alcohol notes the strongest. Overall, not such a great beer an definitely not a good saison - this one fits better in the belgie ale category, and even then - not so good. Neat to sample, but I wish I didn’t wast space in my suitcase for this one! I sampled this 25 cL bottle purchased from Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium on 19-August-2013 for €1,99 sampled at home on this side of the Atlantic in Washington on 24-September-2013.

Not exactly what I was expecting from a ’Sainson’, but never the less a very good beer. Supper thirst quenching and very quaffable.

Simple as it can get. Some yeast and hops with a strange bitter aftertaste. The best thing about is that "coq" on the front of the bottle.

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2013
Big bottle. Hazy deep brown-amber colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of caramel and honey. Taste of vanilla, mild, light dusty hops, straw, brown sugar and malt. Easy to drink but just nothing special.

Holmen1 (2275) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2013
Flaske delt i garasjen med Ovesen: fint men kortvarig skum, lite aroma. Frisk, lett syrlig smak med slank kropp. Velegnet til å skape en god stemning en regnfull søndag formiddag i bryggeriet.
