FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with an enormous fomay white head that left excellent lacing. The aorma was drysih, a bit chalky, perfumey hops and a bit of citrus. The flavor was dry, bitter, perfumey, chalky, musty and had a touch of black pepper. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 375ml bottle [a fugitive from the unknown realm of Bartlebierean beer dungeons, thank you very much!]. Clear (with later pouring cloudy) golden colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy and fruity yeasty aroma, green apple, lemon, pear and hints of green fruit parings stick out of a peach basis, spicy yeasty notes come along, hints of peppercress, pollen, a floral as well as a funky touch - all flavours appear in a mild condition and perfectly integrated. Taste is fresh and refreshing, slightly dry, slightly tart, slightly sweet, slightly spicy, the above mentioned flavours appear again with interchanging emphases in vibrating course until the finish takes a distinct peppery and slightly grassy, bitter hoppy direction. Super soft palate, soft but effectual carbonation. I would have a second one not only under torture.

avendo anche una saison dupont normale da assaggiare,posso affermare di aver notato alcune differenze..per intenderci,sono sostanzialmente le stesse birre, ma nell’aroma si avverte la differenza,con l’aggiunta di luppoli probabilmente leggeri dal punto di vista dell’intensità aromatica..anche nel gusto si avverte un finale più amaro rispetto all’originale..corpo elevato,schiuma mediamente persistente..ottima,merita davvero tanto

SB Lund, Saluhallen flaska. Torrhumlingen ger bra bett och blommigare arom. Fyllig pga alkoholhalt. En stadig sommaröl.

Martinus (4569) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2015
Clear warm golden colour, moussy white head. Hoppy aroma, straw, resin, light sweat, some citrus. Bitter flavour, hops, Dupont yeast. Quite fizzy. Bitter finish, hops, yeast. Lovely summer beer!

JorgeLee (1938) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale golden colour, huge carbonation, ballooning white foam. Just very nice, crisp malts, sweetish balance from yeasty esters, then some herbal and slightly fruity hoppy twang. Not overly hopped, but just enough to perhaps make it more moreish than the basoc version. Nice!

karpik (921) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Aroma of herbs and spices. Golden colour with nice and tall white head. Taste is refreshing with spices and fruits. Finish is medium bitter. Overall good one.

dodskenta (125) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2015
Hazy orange color with a big and rocky head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. This beers aroma is typical saison yeasyness, fruity, a bit doughy with a more pronounced hoppyness. Flavour wise this saison is typically yeasty, wheat bread, grassy and bitter hops. Big carbonation with a nice texture, finishes dry. Good stuff even though I prefer the regular over this one.

BrewMstr (194) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Draft at falling rock, denver. Hazy gold with thick white foam. Funk and sour aroma, dry sour taste, noticeable hops and clean saison finish. Nice.
