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…

SimplySike (1563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2013
50cl. Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange/amber with white head. Aroma funky, cherry, grape, wood, yeast, peach, sweet, fruits. Taste funky fruity bittersweet, little sour. Mouthfeel thin, creamy, aslo dry notes. Amazing beer, very complex aroma for a saison, the taste has so much going on but is still very balanced.

josanguapo (2219) - 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

Bov (13677) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2013
@Ølfestival København 2013 - pretty clear bronze beer with a little foam left; aroma of hay, apple and hints of brett; decent malt backbone, gently sourish and fairly bitter; very dry and long fruity hoppy finish - fresh and straightforward

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.

lasage (92) - DENMARK - FEB 14, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2018 Flaske. Ravgylden, tyk hvid blivende skum, højt kulsyreniveau, klar i øverste del men uklar når bunden hældes med. Lidt sødlig duft, svag hint af humle. Bred komplet smag, malt, sødme, man fornemmer fad, afsluttes med let bitterhed, god balance som ikke stikler voldsom af i nogen retninger.

npwgallagher (52) - valparaíso, CHILE - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2012 Aroma fruta y uva. Cobriza cremosa. Dulce con fruta uva y vino tinto. Fresca. Buen cuerpo.

m_kennedy (51) - FRANCE - MAR 17, 2018
Bouteille 50cl
Mousse : Mousse blanche abondante, très dense et adhérente
Couleur : Orange sombre, légèrement brumeuse, avec remontée de bulles abondante
Nez : Vineux, tanins, raisin, houblon levuré
Bouche : Attaque vineuse, légèrement acide, saveur boisée (fût), vin rouge – Bourgogne / Jura. Présences assez marquée de tanins, toujours sur une note vineuse, avec du fruité sur le raisin. Longue persistance vineuse et houblonnée, note levurée pour un final sec
Avis : Très belle surprise, saveur unique vineuses très douce, gourmande, tannique mais restant fraîche en bouche. Superbe dégustation, entre complexité et gourmandise

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark amber red with a tanned head!!! (and it’s a saison). Smells of yeast esters, pepper, herbs, some wine elements and hints of banana. A very complex aroma for sure. Taste is light sweet, quite fruity, some hints of red wine and oak, just that little touch of eleganse. Moderate bitter, some fruit bitterness. A very nice saison; not at all a sin in my mouth! Love the touch of wine. I’m really glad they didn’t overdo this.
