Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2014
Bottle shared by me and Dutchdrebus with Joes @ weekly tasting. Hazy yellow color with some small particles floating in it, small white head. Smell and taste malts, sweetness, a touch of yeast and a bit weird. Not at all what I expect in a saison really. Hmm, ok beer.

Beerhunter111 (8385) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2014
Gelb-oranges trübes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Gewürzen, hefig. Geschmack würzig, minimal säuerlich. Der würzige Teil überwiegt aber. Insgesamt ein interessantes Bier, aber für ein Saison eher Durchschnitt.

rosenbergh (7409) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
330 ml bottle. BB J/2017. From saveur-biere.com.
Hazy golden colour with an average sized off-white head. Very strong grainy malty aroma with mild sweetness and notes of yeast. The flavour is malt, berries and alcohol. Very malty and unclean. Alcohol also too much present. No Saison delicacy at all.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2013
Bouteille 33cl de HopDuvel, BB 07/2017. Orangée léger, col blanc moyen peu tenace. Arôme offre un léger bouquet fermenté, levure avec ce bouquet herbacé rappelant les baies de genévrier. Pointe fleuri avec ce côté pomme séchée. Palais offre une levure tirant sur l’épicé. Garde ici aussi ce côté genévrier et un profil levure de pâtissier. Pointe épicée, gingembre? mais là encore je penche sur le genévrier. Faible note de houblon en amertume et au final une bière qui offre peu en terme de retrouver ce côté rustique de saison hennuyère. Malt de caractère pils pâle sur qcq notes résiduelles sucrées. Ok mais sans plus.

kermis (5746) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours cloudy orange with an off white head. Aroma is vegetal, peas, mange tout, yes certainly the characters of a traditional saison.. Light moderate sweet and bitter flavour. Light medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Weird.

ekstedt (5630) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle (33 cl) from Etre Gourmet. Hazy deep golden, medium white head. Earthy, unclean aroma with some vegetables. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with a bit harsh bitterness.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2014
Bottled from Biergenot, BB July 2017, large sample. Served in a trappist glass. Almost clear orange color, short to medium lasting white head. Aroma is spicy, peppery, bit flowery and earthy hop, slight grainy malt, bit hay, slight hint of bubblegum. Bit sweet, slight bitter. Bit caramelly, hay again. Full bodied but with a bit dry finish. Medium carbonation. Im a bit in between whether its a boring brew or a very nice brew, which is kind of strange. I give it the benefit of the doubt and decide I like it.
