sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2012
(Bottled, 0.375l) Opaque golden with a huge, frothy head. Lime-citrusy, pale-malty nose with some earthy tartness. Flavor is lime-lemony-fruity with a touch of tartness and acidity, pale maltiness, grassy-herby hops. Medium to full body, quite high and foamy CO2. A decently enjoyable saison, but not really that memorable. 4446

SaintMatty (5189) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2012
750ml Bottle - Golden with a foamy white head. Straw and hay are noticeable in the aroma. Lemon, hops, grass and tea in the taste. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Strykzone (4911) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Corked andcaged. A big white fluffy head. Skunky aromas jump too far. It is also grassy and malty. This is very hazy and is golden yellow. It tastes malty and finky at the first sip. It is also yeasty and a bit of sulfur is evident. A different hop choice would help but this has an authentic farmhouse feel to it.

Leighton (10769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s 2012 Pre-GBBF Shindig, London. Pours a very cloudy yellow with a creamy foam head. Dusty straw nose, yeast. Big sweet flavor, dough, more yeast. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Sugary sweet finish, all dough, yeast, white bread. Fine.

gunnar (5225) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle from Etre Gourmet webshop. Pours hazy weak golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is lemon and some spice and yeast. Taste is fizzy and oxidiced lemonjuice,with a shortlived end. Ordinary IMO.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2012
Tap at Owl House. Pale golden-orange pour. The nose is quite rustic with some distinct breadiness to the malt. A little bit of clean spice and some light fruitiness as well. A little bit of yeast and some stickiness. It’s pretty good. I’d like to try it with a bit of age on it to see if it will dry out some. A little bit of rustic character.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is a little funky with some nice lemon and yeast. Taste is light but had some fruit and slight spice.

Swaroga (1315) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2012
375ml bottle. Hazy, yellow lemon juice like liquid with medium white foam. Nose : Very strong citrus and citrus zest aromas, bread. herbs. Smells like it’s gonna have a lemon bite. Sip : good carbonation, water like body with a bit oily texture. Moderatly sweet with citrus flavors. Grainy and develops moderate bitterness. Short, lemonade like aftertaste. VERY drinkable and refreshing ! Nice refreshment with well balanced palate.

mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Whole Foods, Bowery, New York 375ml ($6): Pours peachy body with a big, but quickly dissipating, white head. Aroma is funk. I think the green bottle added a little bit of skunk in there, but after the initial pour the aroma reverted back to saison. Taste is dry. There is a slight bitterness. Body is really light. Beer is refreshing. Some grass and straw type flavours. This ain’t bad, but sort of doesn’t have enough going on in the taste.
