tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a beautiful hazy golden straw color with a fizzy white head. Pear dominates the nose, also a good bit of belgian yeast sweetness, some ripe fruits, grassy, slightly spicy and some saison funkiness. A nice belgiany malty sweetness up front on the taste. an almost tart lemony taste, grassy and peppery, and some nice saison funkiness. Not quite what I was hoping for, but still quite tasty, and great for a hot summer day.

tdtm82 (1699) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
Bottle, SX Bottle Share Great conditioning for the style. Prominent white lacing. Hazy. Smells of wild flowers, dandelions, morning garden dew. Taste is white wine grapes, lemons, soft malts, a dry but pleasing finish. Really spritzy and zingy. A great Bierre de Garde. Top work.

Maakun (2702) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Big gusher so half the bottle lost on the floor. Slight hazy golden with short lasting off white head. Quite sweet malty notes, some honey and flowers, light lemon, lots of light spicy yeast with some white pepper, nice farmyard character. Medium sweet and very light bitter and sour. Medium bodied with slick feel and a bit soft but fizzy carbonation. Nice.

ignorant (49) - madrid, SPAIN - MAR 30, 2016
one yellow and pale orange light haze .. Good crown d white spongy foam with good retention and active carbonation. Lacing remains are abundant and well-defined inside the cup. Very aromatic, with the presence of yeast, sweet and sour citrus notes (candied orange) and sweet fruit like pear, banana and Paraguay. Against a background of honey and caramel float also other shades of earthy, floral and medicinal character that add complexity. In the mouth firm, flavorful, with sweet and fruity notes entry and more acidic, dry and astringent. Very well balanced with earthy and smooth bitter finish point. Flavor with hints of pear, banana and orange marmalade. Medium bodied and lively carbonation. Easy to drink tight style

Ysok02 (729) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2016
Robe blonde, mousse, peu abondante. Nez frais sur des notes de houblon, de foin, de fruits jaunes, sur un fond minéral. Bouche tout en tension, bulle fine, finale tendue et sèche. Une bière de soif, qui désaltère après le ski.

Beer5000 (5633) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2016
750 ml bottle. Slightly foggy, pale golden body with a small white head. Aroma is spicy with yeast, wheat, some banana and maybe coriander. Dangerously light and refreshing in flavor, mild pale malt, wheat, spices, yeast and fruit. Medium to light bodied and refreshing in aftertaste as well with a floral ending. Might not be exactly in accordance with style, but I sure enjoyed this one.
