RasmusOtt (2389) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2011
Pours hazy amber with off white head. Aroma is blasting summerly fresh with sweet oranges, tangerine, clementin, lemon peel, saison yeast is there, hops and grassy notes. Taste add some more hoppy notes, yeast comes a bit more through, citrus fruits are still very dominating. Excellent Saison..

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle 33 cl from Kris Wines. Pours vibrant unclear light amber orange with a nive small white head. Aroma is all in on oranges and tangerines, orange zest, grassy EU hops, yeasty esters and a bit of the saison ruralness. Amazing smell, just what a saison should smell like. Taste is a bit more harsh, the yeasty esters play a bigger part, still huge amounts of orange and tangerine, hayish malts, stille the rural quality. Really fucking tasty. Insanely smooth. Stands out as one of the best saisons I’ve ever had.

Draft at the brewery. Cloudy orange golden color, huge white ice cream cone head. Aroma of orange peel and farmhouse funk. Taste has subtle citrus, straw. Nice example of the style.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle at the East Croydon Beer Tasting. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Plenty of Belgian yeast on the nose, slight floral notes. Light to medium sweet flavor, with nice and fruity bubblegum, yeasty with hints of grass. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Mild warmth in the finish, some bread and yeast, light caramel, touches of grass, a little bit of earth but not much, hints of estery fruit. Very smooth for the ABV. Really nice.

Bottle from the Bottle shop, Good Shed, Canterbury, Kent 16th July 2011 consumed 22nd July 2011 Pours gold with white head, some powdery sediment comes through with my pour. Nice light furriness on tongue, some soft apricot skins and a sunny day. Touch of sweetness, furriness again darts across the tongue, lovely nose, soft and just lovely with a little funkiness. Great stuff. A8 A3 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

Shared 330 ml bottle, from the brewery. ABV is 7%. Cloudy (end of bottle) golden colour, moderate white head. Lovely aroma of Belgian saison yeast, distinct spicy and fruity notes. High level of carbonation in the mouth. Very nice and spicy "Belgian" flavour, also some fruity notes.

Hazy orange-amber beer. Good off white head. Nice saison - orange nose. Light palate, crispy and fairly dry without going too far. Taste follows the nose with subtle additional fruits of peach and tangerine and a whisper of pineapple. Smooth malt just after the mid and then good bitterness kicks in. Grapefruit and blood orange. Dry finish with a carbonated bite. Nice fruity saison! Go do an Impy version Nate!

A bottle in the Old Fountain. Lost a lot of the fruitiness now and leaves a dry crisp saison with a little hop bitterness, probably more like what was intended but I kinda miss those fruity notes!
