COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DrnkMcDermott (2898) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2012
33 cl bottle. Dated 10/11/10, $4 at Binny’s, Nov ’10. Fizzy, fizzy pour, big head over a brownish-brassy body. Popping bubbles almost as noisy as Rice Krispies. Light malty smell with a hint of Belgian wheat or spice. Sips are effervescent as champagne. Taste is mild golden malts with a hint of roast. A little raspberry tart, but a happy, dry finish. I said happy, not hoppy, as there’s not a noticeable bitterness, at least that can be felt over the dryness. Tasty, well worth repeating.

Lore (1438) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 4, 2015
Beautiful appearance of amber colour with ruby notes and huge, creamy beige-ish off-white head; aroma of grains, some grape, berries and floral notes; taste of roastedness, caramel notes, dried fruits, and some sourness; not a tylical saison, but surprisingly good

smmaaren (315) - NORWAY - JUN 19, 2015
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours deep ruby witha small beige head. Aromas of fruits. Taste is slightly sour. This isn’t a silly beer. It’s good.

mrjez (39) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 19, 2015
L: pours a murky dark amber. S: not much on the nose, mostly bready malt and a little pepper. Subtle citrus. T: like the smell but with the citrus more pronounced than the malt. This gives way to soapy sweetness as the drink goes on. F: has a dry sour taste, a bit tart up front. O: started well but ended a bit messy. Almost a drain pour by the end.

jdjuice (434) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2015
Pours brown-amber with thin white head. Not a color I expected for a saison. Aroma is kind of bready, yeasty. Flavors are relatively sweet, malty, maybe a hint of sourness, but seems closer to a bock due to the sweetness and color. Still drinkable and a bargain at 99 yen.

thirstyrabbit (1411) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle. Copper body, small head. Sweet and spicy aroma with prunes and juicy red grapes. Sweet fruity taste with fructose-heavy grape juice. Very faint tartness in the finish. Way too sweet and not my idea of a Saison - I wouldn’t prefer to drink this while working on a field in the hot weather. It’s more suitable as a dessert beer. Silly La Divine was sugary too but the sweetness had its merits there. I think cellaring this might give interesting results.

Marduk (3842) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 12, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear mahogany color. Tiny to almost no head, disappears. Caramel, sweet, malty, plums, fruity tones in aroma. Plums, dark rye bread, sweetish, malty in taste. Dark rye bread with plums in aftertaste. Soft carbonation.

willisread (723) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle from Seiyu (¥150). Pours a caramel brown color with a modest off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Faint aromas of grain, hay, caramel malt and muscat. Sweet and slightly sour (in a rotten fruit way) on the palate. Light to medium body with a cola mouthfeel. Soft to average carbonation. Fruit flavors come a little more forward as it comes to room temperature: stone fruit, raisin, prune, muscat. Finish has a nutmeg and clove element to it. Not really a saison in the modern sense, but historically saison is an open category so this brown fits in fine.
