COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Saisoner er in. Saisoner er hippe. Simpelthen. Endnu har ingen givet den helt gode forklaring på, at denne uhyre traditionelle belgiske ølstil pludselig nyder en voldsom opblomstring blandt toneangivede ølnørder. Bortset fra selvfølgelig, at det er en uhyre delikat drik i al sin forfinede enkelhed. Men vi har begået en synd. Vi kunne ikke lade være. Vi har nemlig hældt vores Amager-variant af en Saison på et træfad. Vi håber, at de bløde tanniner fra træet og de noble Pinot Noir-druer giver et saftspændt ekstra twist. Vi ved, at vi måske påkalder os Saison-fundamentalisterne vrede med denne gavtyvestreg. Men ærlig talt, så er vi ligeglade.
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det...

English: Saisons are in. Saisons are hip. It’s as simple as that. So far, no one has come up with a good explanation as to why this very traditional Belgian farmhouse style has suddenly skyrocketed in popularity amongst the in- crowd of the beer geek nation. Except, of course, for the fact it’s simply a very delicate drink in all of its refined simplicity. But we’ve committed a sin. We couldn’t resist. We poured our Amager Saison variety into a barrel. We hope the soft tannins from the wood and the noble Pinot Noir grapes add a juicy extra twist. By doing so, we may bring the wrath of Saison fundamentalists upon ourselves. But frankly, we don’t give a damn!
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

tom10101 (6281) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle (500 ml). Best before 04/2017. Clear deep golden-orange with a medium white head, good retention, leaving some lacing. Aroma is of pinot noir, quite floral with moderate fruitiness, cereals, caramel, mild oak spiciness and herbal notes. Taste is mildly tart and quite floral again with pinot noir, oak tannins, cereals, mild caramel, oak spiciness and herbal bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is quite tannic. Finish is a bit too harsh for my liking. Not bad at all but could be more refined. Barrel treatment seems to be not enough in terms of winey presence but too much in terms of tannins so there’s definitely some adjustments to make there. Drinkability would be rather good if it was not of the harsh finish. Ok.

Appearance: hazy golden color and thin white head.
Taste: zesty, lemon acid, malty, caramel, some funky notes.
Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, zesty finish.

Uhhmeister (116) - - APR 30, 2016
W aromacie duuzo cech porzadnego saisona; pieprznosc, przyprawy, masa przypraw. Toz za tym beczka, dosyc intensywna, wnosi drewniane nuty, tanine, wytrawne winne nuty. W smaku na poczatku bardzo slodkie, z czasem pieknie przechodzi beczka w wytrawny i mocno taninowy aftertaste. Bomba, swietnie ulozona beczka z bardzo dobra baza.

murran (691) - - APR 30, 2016
Pours an amber body with a medium head. The aroma is really nasty but the taste makes up for it. It is really nice and rich of malty flavours.

Kauge (2127) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle from Uba ja Humal. BB 04.2017. Was afraid the Pinot Noir would be too present in this one, but in fact it’s not - I do get a hint of the wine barrel, giving it a somewhat spicy, tanninic, red grape character. It is quite mellow, but manages to add a pretty interesting touch to the otherwise kinda forgettable Saison. Somewhat grainy on the palate; dryish finish with a bit of bitterness, mellow carbonation. Can’t help but consider it a bit boring despite the barreling effort...

ALIBALI (2613) - Kiel, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2016
Tolle Kombination schon beim schnuppern. Kräftige Holzfassaromen, dann etwas versteckt aber defentiv vorhanden, die typischen Saisonmerkmale. Der Trunk dann anders als erwartet, spielt sich doch die Weinlastigkeit des Bieres sofort in den Vordergrund, nur um das Zepter im Mittelteil kurz zu Gunsten einer exotischen Spritzigkeit abzugeben. Der Abgang dann lang und wieder sehr weinig trocken. Mutig & sehr gelungen. Direkt von der Brauerei in Dänemark (hat nur einmal wöchentlich für 3 Std auf!!!) 0,5l/ca. 5 Euro.

3.7
DocLock (11112) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose was hops, citrus, white pepper, spice, red winey fruit. Tasted hoppy and citric, with some late notes of red wine grapes and grape must which adds a complexity to the finish. Solid beer.

3.7
Taboada (1489) - Compostela (Galiza), SPAIN - FEB 5, 2016
500 mml bottle tasted on the 27/01/2016. Pours hazy colour with medium off-white head. Fruity and woody aroma. Medium sweet body and fruity flavour. Next one please!
