COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison brewed with rye, spiced with angelica seeds.

Í Vallóníu, Frænskumælandi hluta Belgíu, fæddist bjórstíll sem gjarnan er kallaður Saison eða "árstíð". Bjórinn var bruggaður á sveitabæjum handa verkafólki á sumrin. Skaði sækir innblástur í þennan stíl. Við bruggunina á Skaða er bætt rúg og íslenskri ætihvönn, sem ýtir undir þann kryddkarakter sem einkennir stílinn.

suurjuust (3850) - ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2017
330ml bottle. Reddish amber beer, medium white head. Nose is sweet, Belgian yeast, caramel. Flavor is slightly dirty, caramel sweetness, Belgian yeast. Sugar and dirty notes in the finish, more Belgian yeast. How is this a saison? More like a cheap and sugary Belgian ale.

Juks (1205) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2017
330ml bottle from local alco store in Reykjavik. Pours hazy amber with thick beige head, doesn’t last very long, but leaves nice lacing. Very aromatic, weird tartness, witbeer-ish, yeasty aroma. Taste is malty and dry. Very dry finish. Some grassy and floural notes. Medium bodied, extremly dry, average carbo. I like dry beers, but this one is surprising even for me. Almost nothing to do with saison here.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2016
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Orangey, large tight head. Simple belgian ale aroma, a bit like a leffe, something on the grungy side of the genre, but without the quite as much sweetness as leffe. Taste similar, quite grungy, a bit of iron and liver, a little sweet. Full palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish a bit metallic and dirty. Not a saison by any stretch of the imagination. Belgian yeast definititey dominating, but this is just a dirty leffe, which is different from a saison. Does vaguely covery the alcohol.

2.6
Marduk (8628) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Yeasty, fruity, sourish, plastic and white currant in aroma. Grainy, yeasty, sweet, sugary, alcohol, straw in taste. Sugary, caramel and straw in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Alcoholic and sugary brew.

3.1
Rask0lnikov (1584) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2016
330ml bottle. Amber colour. Thin white head on top. Hints of grass, sweetness, candy sugar, yeast in the aroma. Caramel, sweetness, yeast, alcochol, flowerness in the taste. Slightly grassy, bitter, alcocholy palate. Quite, stron rather sweet, medium bodied beer. Far away from the essence of farmhouse.

3.2
martjoobolut (5360) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2016
0,33L bottle, BB 09.06.18 (from Koht). Pours dark amber with whiteish beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, malt, belgian yeast, spices, fruits, slight butter. Flavor is sweet and bitter, malt, spices, fresh fruits, sugar. Finish is burnt sugar and dry. Carbonation is on the high side. Overall: ok-ish belgian strong ale, but no sign of saison (or "farmhouse ale" as label claims) .
