CapFlu (4781) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
Pours a large frothy white lasting head atop a clouded, sediment filled Amber body. Nose of wood and malt? Smells somewhat like a dubbel while cold. Strange. Flavours is like La Fin du Monde with a Wooden and weedy finish. Pretty tasty. Nothing like a saison. Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights.

Fin (8322) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, consumed at home/village hall function, Saturday 27th June 2015 Barrel ageing works really well, it’s probably more subtle than some but still leaves it’s thumbprint. Some woody and tart flavours and a streaky yeastiness, but it’s warming, fruity and a little earthy with a grapey edge. Good. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6

mgajdaczewa (906) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 23, 2015
W aromacie początkowo uderzają intensywne nuty kwiatowe, które wraz z ogrzewaniem ustępują miejsca winogronom, ziołom i wyraźnej dębinowej wanilli. W smaku pestkowe winogrona, zioła, wyraźne drewno i wanilia, bardzo miękkie i pełne, alkohol lekko drapie w gardło. Piękna długo utrzymująca się piana. Eleganckie piwo - to adekwatny przymiotnik.

brontebeach (171) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Pours golden amber, off white head that thins quickly. Nose - sweet balsamic. In the mouth balanced with a mere hint of sour but mostly sticky, which is a disappointment as the saison becomes a myth. Nice but not great.

UDBeernut (2168) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours light gold, hazy. Nose has some white wine. Taste is more earthy, generally balanced, with some more white wine on finish. Medium body.

gad905 (199) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle shared 30/4/14. Pours burnished hold, off-white head. Nose heavy with white wine, plenty of brett funk too. Juicy tart grapes, melon, lime citrus and all sorts. Tastes medium sweet caramel and grapey winey sweetness too, moderate acidity, citric, brett and vinous, gentle noble hop bitterness, some buttery oak, drying brett finish. Not as good as the non-BA version IMO, not quite balanced, but still interesting and rewarding.

BlazerT (247) - POLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Comparing to the non-BA version this one in taste is rubber-like with strong chardonnay taste and aroma, more earthy notes noticable. Moist wood. BA is slighthly more sweet. Not such intense fruity and yeasty character.

berlinoise2go (665) - NORWAY - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle (33cl). Huge off-white head, great retention, leaves the glass covered by lacing. Hazy, amber colour. Lovely, warm aroma of white dessert wine, caramel, grapes, barnyard, resin. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste has a sweet, fruity core, ’surrounded’ by a mild, brett-dominated dryness, giving a pleasing overall balance.

bpreo (2073) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Special because it is aged I old wine barrels. Wheaty and hoppy at the same time.

Dobre smaczne tresciwe Saison. Koloru piwo jest bursztynowego z niewielka metnoscia. Winny aromat sie wyczuwa ale w smaku jakos juz nie bardzo. Piana srednia ale za to trwala. Slodowe zbozowe i chlebowe w smaku. Alkohol nieco wyczuwalem w nim ale specjalnie nie pszeszkadzal i nie byl dominujacy. Glowna rola byla slodowosc. Chmielne i wytrawne wrazenia stanowily jakby tlo. Ciekawa jak to w prawie kazdym przypadku etykieta artystyczna
