Ludwig (60) - USA - APR 10, 2003
Not as good as Ommegang, but a very good example of a Saison style brewed. Above average beer

Bottle at the Aaahhh...ØL!!! Julebord 2016. Hazy yellow body with a big white head. Aroma is citric with pepper, bread and funk. Taste is lightly sweet with orange and pine, spicy yeast esters, clean fruity refreshing finish. Very nice!

kapusil (1506) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2017
0.75l bottle. Murky golden body with an enormous white head. The carbonation is extremely vigorous. Huge barnyard notes in the aroma after the first whiff followed by some bread, grass, earth, pepper, lemon zest and some floral hops. The barnyard character fades quite quickly though. Taste of honey, hay, lemon zest, pepper and grassy hops. The finish is crisp like a dry sparkling wine and bitter too. Very enjoyable beer. Like a well made strong saison.

Jultsu (1217) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2017
BBE 05/2018. Superiso tuuhea viipyvä vaahto, samea oranssinen väri, hapokas. Tuoksu viettelevän tyypillinen makea belgistrong. Suutuntuma makean hedelmäisä, salmiakkinen, kuiva, hapokas mutta pehmeä, nopea. Nautittava.

Golden, high carbonation. Fruity aroma with bit of spices. Taste with more malty notes. Not much happening, but drinkable.

mutz (1113) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2017
75 cl fles gekocht in het klooster van Achel. Goudkleurig, mooie witte kraag die lang blijft. Ruikt zoetzurig, fruitig enzo maar niet zo in mijn straatje. Smaakt idem maar met een gistige bijsmaak. Bitter zuur in de afdronk. Niet zo mijn smaak dit bier.

Hopmaestro (1753) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2017
Aroma is crisp grassy, herbal with a faint white pepper aura. Taste brings light pineapple fruityness, pears and honey. Soft and round and the alcohol is really well hidden despite the rather crisp setting for the beer. Dry in the finish with a small funk sensation as well. There’s a lot of small subtle notes flying around in this one. Excellent!

adamnowek (3307) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2017
Bold golden colour with a creamy, moderately-sized head. Smells yeasty. Taste is orange, spicy yeast, and some herbs.
