SlackerMads (1259) - DENMARK - SEP 26, 2013
Can. Clear golden with a large white creamy head, good retention and lace. Pepper, white bread, flowers, peach, honey, oranges. Soft mouthfeel, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Could do with just a little more bitterness for my taste, feels a little bit sweet in the finish, where I would like it to be just a little bit more dry. That does not ruin the overall impression of a soft and ok poundable saison. Spicy and flowery finish.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 1. Pours clear, bright yellow with a tight, white cream head. Light dry and doughy pale malt nose with hints of dried citrus. Medium sweet flavor with white bread, light bitterness, lemon and tangerine merengue. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with simple, bready pale malts. OK.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Can from Cibo Express at MSP, I was required to drink in the terminal and could not take with me to go. The beer pours a slightly hazy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of bready malt, citrus and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, peppery yeast and fruit. The finish is doughy with a spice and citrus aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

nuplastikk (4138) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2013
16oz can. Hazy orange body. Pretty well balanced Saison, I think the oats are a great grounding addition. Pretty sweet and fruity. Delicate, balanced, dialed in, never overwhelming on the palate. Really mellows even more as it warms in temperature. Mellow and easy, but approaching full bodied and rich too, this is a beer Iíll enjoy revisiting and getting to know better.

Palme (3015) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a clear glowing golden one with a nice medium sized bright white top. Smells fresh and inviting. Some what malty with traces of wort, thin grapefruit juice, fresh citrus and light fruits. Really quenchable this. Light on the mouthfeel with a soft to average carbonation level. Again some thin grapefruit juice in the taste, and I will say that it tastes summery - like in something I would want to drink lots of in the summer. Light, fresh some grassy hoppy tones. Really good flavors going on here. 04.05.2013

DiarmaidBHK (3170) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Can from Zippís Liquors. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Slight fruit on the nose. Some citrus on the tongue. Not getting a lot of farmhouse but still quaffable. Finishes clean. Itís average from Surly which is still better than 95% of the breweries out there.
