JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2012
A zesty saison with nice hop character that could have gone drier. Orange-yellow, a bit hazy, white dissipating head. Grass-lemon aroma that reminds me of EK Goldings, but I shouldn’t try and guess these things. A sweet orange note there too. Moderate, smooth bitterness with some zesty citrus, lightly sweet rolling into mildly dry. Lively.

Swaroga (1272) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2012
75cl bottle. Just a bit hazy yellow golden liquid with big snowy white head. Nose ; strong aromas of straw and esters. Soap. Strong notes of citrus fruits and the zest bite. Sip : Low density body with creamy texture, well carbonated. Medium sweet with chemical bite of citrus and other esters. Really soapy. It ends sour dry with a chemical aftertaste. Overall it’s not my kind of refreshing saison but I will finish this bottle. Must admit though I’m a bit disappointed .... Extra points for the bottle and the label which seam quite promising. *edit* after shaking the bottle for a bit and poured into a glass I realized that this beer is more then hazy , It looks like a tea with milk !!!! That’s the most hazy I ever saw with a fresh beer.

TBone (12477) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2012
Bottled 750ml (PBF, BB 08/2013)
Clear yellow color, small steady white head. Coriander-like spicey, a bit earthy and fruity aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Fruity, a bit spicey, crisp. Lingering fruityness in the aftertaste. Very style-like saison but could be more funky to be interesting.

Bottled@PBF2012. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is glue, sweet malts and some grassyness, Flavour is quite much the same in a strange balance. A nah when it comes to "it"
