Saison style top fermentation old brown beer. Its taste is remarkable, light and favourably combined to offer a tone that is both modestly sweetened and fruity, leaving the mouth with a refreshing feel as is constantly asked of it.

Copper color, a bit hazy with decent off-white head. Aroma of belgian yeast and some sourness. Taste is not as expected from the aroma. Starts with sweet malts and gets just a bit tart in the finish. Body is medium with good carbonation. Definitely not a saison true to the style. The sweet caramel character at the start doesn’t pair well with the slight sourness and also the aftertaste is not very pleasant. Overall I didn’t enjoy it and wouldn’t have it again.

Bottle from Seiyu. Dark rusty amber, off-white head. Aroma has malt notes that make me think of a brown ale rather than a saison. Flavour has some yeast and spiciness. Odd beer, but nice.

Maxbier (706) - Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Dark brown pour with big tan head. Sweet lemon sour aroma. It says saison on the label? Mostly sweet and a bit sour. Tiny bit of saison spicyness if you look for it. Tart finish, like a German brause bonbon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOTTLE 33 CL. Look: clear mahogany, minimalist head. Aroma: sugary and honey like sweetness, winy notes, some horse blanket. Taste: light caramel sweetness, lactic and acetic acidity and some funk. Hardly a saison, but drinkable.

2 bottles for 380 yen from Seiyu. Served in a tulip, 5% It pours a surprisingly dark amber brown reminiscent of the barrel on the label. The aroma is of a big malty belgian, similar to a dubbel. The taste is similarly malty, light toffee, honey, candy sugar, candied fruits with just the slightest of nods to a possible saison type yeast. It’s quite a nice ale, think of it as a Brown Belgian Ale and you’ll have a better opinion of it than as a saison. Quite good for the price!

Small 250 ml bottle from Seiyu. Pours brown copper with a huge beige head - that even stays. Interesting, I really haven’t seen many brown or copper-colored saisons, new thing for me. Aroma is soft, fruity and a bit of caramel. Taste is also sweet and fruity, even candy-like. There is some tartness to balance this but not too much. Doesn’t feel too cloying though, so this is good. Has more body than I could expect from 5% beer. Overall, interesting take on saison, not completely on the spot for me but not a bad beer to drink.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about twenty seconds. The lacing was somewhat there but spreads out quickly with a slight speckled sort of messiness. The smell had a weird sort of sweet grainy and grassy stickiness - all encompassing but not necessarily inviting. The taste took those previously mentioned flavors and combined but also allowed an undercurrent of dulled spice (it tasted super old). On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with not much of a sessionable quality to it as the smell and taste somewhat bothered me to an extent. Something seemed quite off all around. Overall, I say that I don’t think this is something that I would have again. There’s something that seemed really off in the taste and smell that just wasn’t too appealing.

Bottle, from Geers. Pours a dark copper almost brown pour with thin white head. Aroma is very spicy, tons of nutmeg and cinnamon, grainy, light fruity notes, something kind of like mincemeat, savory-dessert kind of aroma. Taste is fruity and spicy, lots of brown sugar, toasted grain, very much like an unsoured oud bruin. Palate is med bodied, nice carbonation, medium finish. Not exactly what I expect from a saison, but I assume this is actually fairly traditional and to be honest I didn’t find it half bad.
