Big, bold and powerful, this saison (could be a strong belgian ale too) makes its presence felt right from the start. It’s frothy, bubbly and in-yer-face, this. I quite liked the manly presence of this quaffable beer. By no means as elegant a version as a Belgian’d do, but most enjoyable in it’s own right. Bring it on, guys, let’s hear more from you.

Hazy amber - orange beer. Frothy white head, short lived. Light nose of orange and malt. Dry palate. Typical Saison malt - sweet ish, quite pronounced here. Nice touch of zesty fresh orange. Dry finish with a pinch of spice. Pretty decent strong saison but just a tad over dry.

Hazy golden with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, fruity, yeasty and light spicy. Flavor is quite sweet and light acidic. Dry and light acidic finish with warming alcohol. 050110

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 1, 2011
Hefiger, sehr markanter Antrunk mit süßlicher Note. Stark hefig-hopfig, ausbalanciert. Recht fruchtig, was sich gut in das starke Hefearoma einfügt. Dazu alkoholisch, was sich aber aromatisch und nicht störend auswirkt. Vollmundig, etwas holzig. Gelungen!

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle. It’s a hazy, golden beer, a dense white head sits on top. The aroma has alcohol, both of the normal and higher kind. The higher alcohols fortunately being subdued. It’s also fruity with a sweetish touch. The flavor is pretty much the same, with alcohol warmth being far more evident than I could wish for. Still, it’s not bad. Full-bodied and warming, and a bitter finish with white sugar sweetness. I don’t know why, but I expected more from this. It’s slightly unclean, like it’s been fermented way too warm. I know it’s normal for a saison to ferment warm, but this was too much, even though it’s a strong one. But, I wouldn’t shy away from another bottle or four. 091127

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - FEB 21, 2010
(on bottle) Semihazy yellow, small, white head. Trpopical aroma, passionsfruit, mixed with coriander and orange peel and fresh orange juice. Very nice carbonation, perky, yet with that flat, old hopfeel. Sharp fruity taste, still very tropical, mixed with pears. The alcohol is present throughought the drink, maybe a tad dominant. Sweet, well composed.

A Mes rate. Bottle at the Weekend of Tarts.
Thanks to Bullseye for this. Cloudy golden colour with a thin but lasting white head and plenty of lace. Ginger, spice, good malt, good hops an enjoyable fruity saison. Lots of body. Chewy, very pale malty finish. Some very slight cardboard notes but it doesn’t really let it down too much. Nice stuff.

(500ml bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of coriander, ginger, citrus, light pepper, and apple. Flavor of alcohol, citrus, herbs, candi sugar, and yeast. Would like to try a bottle aged a bit.
