Bottle @ TFODRBSG, Ulfborg, 2008.
[thank you, papsoe]
Pours hazy golden with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lightly spicy with oranges, cloves and a caramel edge to it. Fine mouthfeel with a grainy edge - could perhaps do with some more fluffyness, like many other saisons. Flavour is great, though. Very nice malty balance, some fruity tartness, and a great balance of pepper and other spices. Some caramel and rye bread play along as well. Not a touch on the Jandrain we had earlier, but still wonderful.

A hazed golden amber saison with a thick off white head. In aroma, a smooth creamy fruity malt with light curacao. In mouth, a smooth Bretty malt with curacao, tingly mouthfeel, very good for a 3 year old beer.
