PietS (190) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2016
This is not just an average saison, the brewer really added a good winter’s touch. The taste is a combination of typical sour fruity, bretty saison flavor and more dark sweet flavors (caramel, malts). A warm, but also fresh mouth feel; enjoyable bitter aftertaste. Not easy to find, but definitely worth it; it’s a great beer.

Goose Geuze (21) - COVENTRY, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Hazy beige colour with a white head with lacing. Spices(allspice), pepper, caramel, tea and malts. Fairly boozy and a fair bit going on. Nice warming tasty beer.

jc1762 (959) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Tap into a snifter showing brown rims, opaque brown center, and sparse white foam. The nose shows sweet candy notes. The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. Flavors of tea and biscuits with a slightly sweet maltiness. Similar to a British pale ale.

alteregoo (1074) - POLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Pana nieduża, gruba, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa brunatno pomarańczowa, mętna. Aromat estrowy, są brzoskwinie, gruszka, kandyzowana skórka pomarańczy, agrest, porzeczki, winogron, do tego przyprawy. W smaku półsłodkie, minimalnie kwaskowe, prym znów wiodą gruszki, kandyzowane owoce, suszone morele, głóg, wino domowe, jakieś fenole... Skojarzenia z keksem bakaliowym. Goryczka nieduża, karbidowa (acetylenek wapnia)? Wysycenie średnie, alkohol dość dobrze ukryty. W odbiorze półpełne, ale jednocześnie dość ciężkie i przez to mdłe, ciężkie do picia...
Taki keks w płynie, na dłuższą metę dość męczący...

wlf (373) - DENMARK - AUG 2, 2016
Pours hazy dark red to brown with medium to big slightly offwhite head; aroma is banana, dried fruits and spices, some phenolic and alcoholic notes; taste is medium sweet, dried fruits, some toasted and roasted malt, quite spicy taste with low to medium bitter finish with spice, a lot of different things going on but everything in its right place; mouthfeel is thick creamy syrup like with average carbonation [best before end 2016]

hawthorne00 (3602) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle. Lovely clear deep amber with a beige head. A fair bit of sediment is left in the bottle. Reserved aroma of sticky bread crusts, spiced dough. Much more assertive to taste but with much the same features. Some stewed fruit as well as sticky dough. Firm bitterness with lots of spices at the end. Before that mostly sweet with only a hint of tartness. Wasn’t in the fridge but opened up more and more in the glass, with spices softening and more flavours (sour plums, dried banana, baked quinces, licorice) emerging. After a while there’s a little warmth from the alcohol. Another interesting but entirely well-mannered beer from Fantôme - times change it seems.

Duracell (35) - Montreal, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
750mL bottle in an IPA glass. Light brown orange color with creamy head. Fruity and spicy aroma with a nice yeasty backbone. Big flavours of dark fruit, clove and pepper. Relatively sweet and slightly cloying. Full bodied. Interesting beer with a nice depth.

Bottle 750ml @ Gastropuben KICK Malt & Mat, Kristiansand
Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, floral, herbal, caramel, yeast and pepper. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long malty, floral and peppber finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

thepatrickman (985) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 7, 2016
2015 bottle. Although this is billed as a saison, it is basically a Biere de Garde -- it’s malty, a little syrupy, and tastes a bit spiced, almost like a sweet raisin bread. A lot sweeter than most saisons, but it completely works.
