KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2013
375ml Bottle. The pour was a murky golden orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white creamy head that diminished quickly, down to a scattered film and medium collar with excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of a funky Belgian yeast and a light grain malt with notes of citrus (lemon), a fruity ester (peaches and pairs), lemon grass, cheese and dust. The taste was very yeasty with a strong citrus backbone and had a mild grassy feel along with a hint of lemon early on, and then become very lightly bitter with a mildly sour ending. The flavor only lasted a short time after the swallow, with a light sour bitter taste fading slowly off the taste buds into the background. Mouthfeel was a bit above light in body and rather dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall this was an extremely tasty Saison, which I also found to be very refreshing and easy to drink. I think I may just have found my new session brew...

Me encanta. Muy equilibrada sin desencantar a quienes buscamos las acidez ni asustar a quien no est acostumbrado. Aromas ctricos, bretts, ligera barrica. Un perfil muy de vino blanco con final seco. La repito siempre que la encuentro.

375ml bottle pours out a hazy straw color topped with a small white head. Nose is vinegar lots of citrus notes oak barrel. Taste is more of the citrus zest twist a tart vinegar bite and the oak.

Guerde (1290) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2016
(bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow color with a fast dissipating white head that forms a thin ring around the tulip glass. Aroma contains an initial punch of oak and peach with an herbal undertone (I think lemony thyme), and a floor of funk. Slight vanilla and lemon custard. Flavor contains plenty of lemon, mineral water, oak, that finishes with a quick bitterness and lingering oak. This sounds simplistic, but everything works here. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is sprightly. Normally I wouldnt have bought this due to the price, but I picked this up on a discount price ($5.99) and Im glad I did.

Bottle to glass. Aroma is lemon and mild funk. Slightly hazy yellow orange pour. Small white head. Refreshing tart flavor, white bread, , dry lemon, light yeast. Light body, moderate carbonation, brief tart finish. Little hop character to speak of. Light and easy.

Cristobal37 (848) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 14, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2016 Aroma of heavy vinegar, faint grapes, ripe pineapple. Really sour vinegar, brett, armpit and nothing else. Sad if you think this is what a saison should be. Light white wine and water finish. Well, this was a massive let down. No pepper, no lemon rind, no sweetness from the yeast, no dry hopped taste, just a white wine and vinegar drink. Hugely over rated.

Unde (922) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Cloudy yellow beer with smallish head on top. Aroma has lots of citrus, grapefruit and lemon zest with some yeast and sourness. Taste has a lot of lemon zest, then turns into sour with fruity notes and citrus. I was hoping for some barrel notes though. Very light body and high carbonation. Very zesty and tart beer but damn good.

nuplastikk (5829) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2016
375ml bottle at Eronel. Hazy yellow-tan body. Thin, patchy, creamy, white head. Funky sour acetic notes. Light enough on the palate that it works quite well for the style. Lemon lime tanginess. Smooth golden malt. Steady sour barrel notes. Really quite excellent, sublime. One of the best US Saisons Ive had. Phenomenal.

Very well balanced saison. Just enough tartness and citrus. A bit more brett flavoring which is tasty for me. Good palate & savoring finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Columbia, SC. The appearance is a light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is fruit and wood. The taste is slightly tart.
