Theydon_Bois (22092) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2018
Bottle split at Bodney Heights, thanks to LKS, 22/02/18. Almost clear golden with a decent off white cap. Nose is light brett, grains, lemon drizzle, funk, green berry esters, honey. Taste comprises lime, grains, straw, mellow hop, light wood, citric sherbets, grass, champagne yeast tones. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close. Decent enough saison.

Leighton (23401) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2018
Bottle shared in Hackney - sourced from Beergium. Pours clear gold with a small, creamy white head. Nice aroma, doughy wheat, tangerine. Medium sweet flavour with low bitterness, straw, more dough. Medium bodied, lightly oily, with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with saison yeast, more doughy yeast. Enjoyable if a bit basic.

3fourths (9386) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2018
Heavy and clean, sweet and fruity with simple syrup/pastry dough malt drowning tropical-herbal hops, instead what's featured most is the strong candied banana esters. I like the bubbles.

pentaz (1343) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2017
Bottle at @SlackerMads. Pours hazy golden with an offwhite head. Aroma is mild estery, cloves, hay, banana and a really nice toffee. Finishes sweet'ish with honey.

SlackerMads (3695) - DENMARK - DEC 29, 2017
Bottle. Light hazy golden with a medium sized white head with good lace, retention and regeneration. Citrus, banana, honey, flowers, hay, wood. Medium body, medium sweet and mild bitter with warming alcohol. Tasty saison towards tripel.

rumore (1000) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 19, 2017
75cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours hazy gold with gross white foam. Aroma is dominated by yeast, alcoholic. Body is average with moderate carbonation. Taste is limited in sweetness, moderate in bitterness, with some sourness. Finish is relatively long and sour.

jcr (2814) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden body (first glass); hazy deep golden body (second glass). Fizzy white head, diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, banana, light basement dankness, raw grain, citrus. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, watery/sticky/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. The taste of banana and sugar are particularly assertive. Combine that with the syrupy, slightly chalky body, and you wind up with a, well, not what I think of as a saison. Nothing delicate or nuanced here. Disappointing.

willisread (4056) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Bottle from Craft Brewed shared on Thanksgiving. Pours a clearish copper with a big foamy head that lingers. Lots of earthy aromas, fresh soil, hay, manure, overripe orange and grass. Clean and crisp on the palate, with some mineral notes. Some malt sweetness mid-palate that moves into a dry finish. Good carbonation throughout. Maybe a tad boozy, but overall really well done. Another great drop from Blackberry Farm.

Fin (11264) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, shop, Earlsdon, Coventry, consumed at home Thursday 2nd November 2017 in the company of Lynn and Barry cooking Roasted Chicken with Clementine and Ouzo. Pours hazy mid gold with a white head that swiftly departs. It's got a little softness, a very good saison, dry finish, spicy yeast, this is a lovely beer. A7 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

Scrumpy369 (1012) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 17, 2017
Bottle shared at beeroda tasting session. Perfect mix of esters and phenols in the nose and taste. Very nice dry mouthfeel. Crisp and well balanced.
