sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2012
75cl from Dranken Geers, BB 28/12/2012, Lot# 11116. Light gusher. Dorée léger trouble, col blanc. Arôme houblonné, levure belge avec des pointes fruitées citronnées restant bien fleuri. En bouche, le palais est agréablement bien fleuri, levure garde ce profile typique belge, pour une saison cette dernière est moins sèche que de nombreuses versions belges. Le houblon rajoute un beau profile fruité voire épicé avec en retrait un léger malt pâle. Agréable, facile à déguster et pleine de saveur.

Swaroga (1247) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2012
75cl bottle. Hazy, light yellow liquid with small to medium white head. Nose : little tart with citrus fruits notes. Straw and barnyard aromas. Saison yeast. Sip : lively carbonation with low density body. Creamy/oily texture. Strong clove dry start with distinctive acid citrus notes. Grains. It’s refreshing and it’s a genuine "saison" beer taste. A good one and bravo to italian brewers to not only copy a good "saison" beer taste but to set a great example of the gender. Good one.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at Cardinal. A diminishing, white, two-finger head sits on top of a mostly clear, golden body. The aroma has a lovely cellar or barn-ish touch, soon followed by fruityness, orange peel, a spiced touch and some maltyness. Wheat as well it seems. Full-bodied, dry and nicely carbonated. Maybe a bit fizzy, but it suits the beer well. Nice bitterness in the flavor, along with fruityness and grass and pine cones. Wheaty maltyness as a foundation. Lasting finish with a pleasant bitterness, fruityness and pale malts. A wonderful surprise. I expected a nice beer, but this was way past my expectations. Mmmm... 120627
