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…

Alexus' rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Alexus (244) - Stavanger, - NOV 2, 2012
Shared bottle @ Cardinal. Pours a hazy deep golden color with a low head. Expected some more carbonation. Aromas of sugar and caramel, and something funky from the yeast. Flavors are sweet and doesn’t taste like a saison for me. But it’s smooth and interesting.

A pesar de ser una cerveza de fermentación espontanea no es excesivamente ácida y su aroma y su sabor es muy bueno.

kajser27 (2028) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 5, 2017
Clear, amber colored, medium frothy off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, some spicy yeast, fruity, a lot of red wine, grapes and oak barrel notes. Taste is medium to very sweet malt, caramel, bit toasty, spicy Belgian yeast, red wine grapes, ripe fruity, oak barrel, vanilla, very light vinous soury, medium- bitterness, sweetish finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Feels more like a Belgian strong than what you’d expect from a Saison. (bottle, Hoppiness, Koper)

alvaro78 (622) - Sevilla, SPAIN - JUL 25, 2017
Aromas a leva y ligeramente acidos Buen aspecto carbonatacion correcta En boca refrescante seca y acida

josanguapo (1920) - SPAIN - JUL 7, 2017
From Cervezalandia. In Teku glass. Playing Gunman Clive. The wood notes are very subtle, hard to find, but the grapes profile is really notorious and pleasant

50cl Bottle @ LaBIRRAtorium, Madrid, Spain. Hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is yeast, citrus, malt, sweet, white wine. Taste is malt, yeast, citrus, toffee, hints of banana. Medium body, average carbonation.

romanstep (668) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 3, 2017
W nosie średnio intensywnie: karmel, pieprz, banan, nuty winne i delikatna beczka. Barwa bursztynowa, spore zmętnienie, piękna, wysoka piana o drobnych ziarnach, bardzo gęsta. W smaku dość słodkie, karmel, przyprawy, czerwone słodkie winogrona, nuty winne, drewno. Goryczka niska pieprzowo-przyprawowa. Eh, gdyby nie ten karmel.... Butelka do 12/2017

tmzl (367) - SLOVENIA - FEB 14, 2017
Sharp peppery belgian yeast, soft chocolate, solid body, grainy caramel middle, medium sweetness.

Mr_Pink_152 (5541) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Deep golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma is toffee and light fruit. Taste is mid sweet, with mid sweet finish.

TBone (18217) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Bottled 500ml (Beergium. batch 714)
Hazy amber color, small steady white head. Fruityness, some sugary notes, cardboard and grass. Medium-bodied. Some fruityness, a bit earthy, Belgi yeasty, light alcohol. A bit white wineous. Not common Saison but more like strong Belgian ale, feels more than 6.5%.

Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 5, 2017
Fizzy copper colour, creamy white head. Grassy and wheaty aroma with cereal, banana, lemon. Medium body with a slight acidic sting. Great, subtly sour flavour with wheat, grapes, pepper, plum and cereal.
