McNeillR (1329) - SCOTLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Firm hazy orangey golden, bushy eggshell puff of a head. Crystalline grapefruit, baking tray paper and a colleseum of peppery esther holding the nose together. Knotted blueberry, dead weight creamy lemon and a twist of mango. Lush, screwing carbonation and fading shured up mouthfeel. Crisp, scrunched bitter finish and a clammy hardass gooseberry linger. Yes.

Bottle, The Vineyard, Edinburgh

Madirish76 (41) - Whittier, California, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle courtesy of the brewer. Brought across the pond. Had a wonderful nelson hopped nose. Taste is a mix of the saison "spice" slight peppery and vinous characters. The only thing that would make this better would be oak barrels.

angel77 (1097) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 19, 2014
Caña en cimmeria el 12-11-2014. Color ámbar anaranjado amarillento con poca espuma blanca aromas y sabores ligeramente maltosos y afrutados tropicales con ligeros toques herbáceos, ligero amargo final. Cuerpo medio con 6.8 fácil de beber que poco a poco según va calentando va haciéndose algo mas pastoso y denso. No esta mal, fácil de beber y "refrescante"

Lowenbrau (2203) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 7, 2014
Keg @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 08-11-2014.
Stated as 6,5%.
In short: harsh saison?
Pours cloudy golden with forhy white head. Long head retention, some lacing. Citrusy, grapy tart and some solvent like aromas. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste follows the nose, overcarbonated, some harsh mouthfeel, quite fruity and citrusy, but unbalanced. Some weird off flavours. Little saison character.

wvhoran (372) - Tasmania, - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Hazy to murky orange with a fine white head. The aroma is fruity and spicy with pepper, oranges, peaches, and some more tropical fruity notes. The flavour is fruity with and zesty, with saison yeast. Palate is dry and very crisp. Weird but quite successful.

guiroul33 (110) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - OCT 26, 2014
On tap at Festibière festival in Gembloux. I was expecting a bit more from this one but overall a good season, somehow close to a white wine.
