Samuel214 (916) - SWEDEN - APR 22, 2017
Flaska frn SB. Ltt disig, blek/spkgul vtska med hgt, spritsigt vitt skum. Riktigt frisk, syrlig doft av brett, citrusskal, h, lite rtiga toner och citronjuice. Ngot lttare kropp, svller i munnen. Friska brett-toner, citrus och h som i smaken mter en strre beska och mer typiska saison-smaker, tillsammans med lite nyponsoppa och apelsinmarmelad. Druckit den hr ett par gnger tidigare, och gillar den starkt. Mtte den tidigt i mitt lintresse och fastnat fr den sen. Riktigt frsch och frisk. Trstslckare av rang som gr ner oerhrt ltt. En enkel l egentligen, men riktigt gott!

Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden with a small head. Aroma of funk, apples and some grass. Similar taste, also with mild brett. The mouthfeel was on the soft side. A pleasant one.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2016
33 cl bottle from LCBO online, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Light gusher.

App.: Cloudy light straw with a decent white froth. Aroma: Quite zesty, zippy and citrusy, peppery, some funk/wild character, light yeast/bread dough, plucky! Palate: Medium-ish body, full, smooth carbonation. Flav.: More malt and yeast character to round out the sharper notes of citrus, funk and spice, a little estery as well; dry with light to moderate bitterness and light tang, with a citrus and bread dough finish.

Interesting. Not my favourite Saison.

Ernest (7600) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle (batch 2). Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cracker), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon juice, oak sour apple, hints of pineapple and band-aid. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Effectively a sour ale, and not an especially exciting one. Disappointing.

Bottle, batch 2. Bright aroma impression is lemon zest, lemon juice, perfume, concrete-musty brett, faint grass-like hoppiness. Medium bodied, tart, lightly sweet, gelatinous-filmy-slick in the mouth, tasting yeasty, musty, and sour. Bland, tart, and sour with some quiet alcohol heat.
