COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Saisoner er in. Saisoner er hippe. Simpelthen. Endnu har ingen givet den helt gode forklaring p, at denne uhyre traditionelle belgiske lstil pludselig nyder en voldsom opblomstring blandt toneangivede lnrder. Bortset fra selvflgelig, at det er en uhyre delikat drik i al sin forfinede enkelhed. Men vi har beget en synd. Vi kunne ikke lade vre. Vi har nemlig hldt vores Amager-variant af en Saison p et trfad. Vi hber, at de blde tanniner fra tret og de noble Pinot Noir-druer giver et saftspndt ekstra twist. Vi ved, at vi mske pkalder os Saison-fundamentalisterne vrede med denne gavtyvestreg. Men rlig talt, s er vi ligeglade.
Vi er ikke stolte over at vre syndere, men i det mindste er vi bne omkring det...

English: Saisons are in. Saisons are hip. Its 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 its simply a very delicate drink in all of its refined simplicity. But weve committed a sin. We couldnt 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 dont give a damn!
Were not proud to be sinners, but at least were open about it

sneevel (71) - - NOV 7, 2012
Pours a dark ruby brown with an off white head. A mixture of light and medium dark malts on the nose with some nuts and red fruits. Quite the same in the mouth with a bit more fruit and red wine. This is a super interesting twist on a saison, which would be well served by a bit more concentration. Nice to drink.

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.

Beerhammaren (1747) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016
.5l bottle from Estonia Sip. Tnx. Aleksi KSFSK. Pours cloudy amber with medium, stiff head. Aroma is yeast, malts, citrus fruits, caramel, some herbs and bread. Flavor is mostly same. Nice beer but not ideal saison.

Kita (1987) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle, 0.50l. Cloudy amber brown color with medium creamy off-white head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of wine, tanins, vanilla, dark fruit and wood. Taste starts medium sweet grainy with vanilla note, follows by dried fruits, grass, nuts and strong barrel note, mouthfeel is smooth, alcoholic and mild spicy, while finish is pretty bitter. Medium to full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Barrel aging just doesnt suit me well with this saison. Feels even more strong ale-ish...

Psytron (2038) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Smell of citrus, yeast, some hops. Hazy dark amber colour, very high beige head. Aroma of fruit, oak, cognac, alcohol, some yeast. Medium sour, slightly bitter, finishes medium sweet. Lively and rather sharp carbon. Slightly oily texture.

cfrancis (3256) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
Pours cloudy brownish gold with a small white wisp. Aroma is light yeast and sweetness. Light wine characteristics are delicate. Taste is nice and dry, raisin, yeast, light sweetness and some soft pinot noir delicacies. Really nice beer.

belgis (468) - - JUN 5, 2016
Citrus, lemon acid in aroma. 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. Overall: Rather decent, should be more intensive but as I,m not bg fan of this style then I cant add much!
