bartlebier (3633) - Belchium im Biersgau, - JAN 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 75cl bottle Geers, 2012. - Cloudy, creamy saison with full sweet notes and a decent amount of cultivated funk, full of citrus/grape and orange zes flavour. Powerful, original, tasteful saison sensation! //Rerate 2014, after a few 2013 and 2014 bottles, sourced fresh from Erpe-Mere. Quite a bulky, aromatic saison, packed with rich ale flavours, managing a well-attenuated saison palate despite its near 7%. fresh 2014 bottles had a prominent almond malt character and lively spring meadow grassiness in the upfront aroma. Love revisiting this, and its affordability makes that easy.

ALIBALI (1123) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2016
Saison Kracher der Extraklasse!!! Wahnwitzige hellgelbe und gut durchgetrübte Optik. In der Nase sofort belgisch grasig. Dann wird es citrusfresh und Belgian ALEig. Wow. Nice!!! Der Abgang dann passend schlank und trocken. YAU!!! The Big Bottle Power. Mitgebracht aus einem Supermarkt in Belgien.

PhillyCraft (6488) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Backlog, Tap, hazy orange with a small white head.Smell is lemon rind, spice, florals, and dry wood. Flavor most of the same with lots of citrus and herbs. Medium bodied. I like the classic nature of this saison and its easy to drink.

Ulysse (459) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2016
Yeast aroma. Smooth and silky in the mouth. Quite good saison. Alcohol is unfortunately a tad too high.

Cristobal37 (885) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 5, 2016
Loads of carbonation. Aroma of citrus, black pepper, grass. Dry hoppy saison with a very light finish. Slowly spices roll in. What a saison should be. Hops are present bit not at all overwhelming. Yeast adds complexity but not at all sour. Classy and delicious.

axl (663) - Lund, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2016
750ml bottle. Hazy yellow straw with large frothy white head. Aroma is typical saison yeast, straw, some spiciness, light soapiness and some citrus. Taste is similar and typical for the style with saison yeast and straw dominating and some lifting touches of citrus and spiciness as well as a fairly distinct soapiness in the background. Medium mouthfeel and light to medium carbonation.

SylvainCFC (107) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Robe blonde très pâle, claire, tout à fait transparente. Mousse très abondante blanche neigeuse, ouateuse. Bonne tenue avec concrétion sur la paroi. Nez citronné, herbeux et poivré. Attaque aqueuse, assez neutre. Se développent ensuite les notes de grain, malt, le poivré est prononcé et la légère acidité citronnée rafraîchit. Présence levurée. La finale est courte, légèrement acide et très légèrement amère. La texture est aqueuse, la carbonatation est légère. Saison qui exprime tout à fait le style, assez douce pour le genre, très sèche et buvable.
