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.

Diabobale (271) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - APR 15, 2015
Si presenta con un colore giallo paglierino molto pallido e velato, con una schiuma bianca fine, normale e non troppo persistente. Al naso le note del lievito sono preponderanti, con bei sentori floreali e lievemente speziati (coriandolo), oltre che con sentori di pane fragrante e di lievissimo agrumato (cedro). Al palato il corpo è watery, con una carbonazione non eccessiva ma che nasconde bene i suoi 7 gradi alcolici. Al gusto però è carente, con lievi sentori zesty e speziati, seguiti da note erbacee con un finale poco amaro. Sorso secco senza persistenza ma che lascia il palato pulito, con un po’ di salinità finale.

ksiwzos (82) - GREECE - MAR 16, 2015
0.75L bottle from French e-shop Hazy yellow to golden with very light orange tinge. Head is an evidence of wheat, medium lasting, white colored. Aroma is light phenolic spiciness, light herbal hoppiness, honey tones, light colored malts, candy, very balanced! Taste is sweet fruity, lemony, tartness from CO2, taste similar to aroma, very good! Light dryness, medium to hight carbonation. Amazingly balanced and complex. Reminds me a bit of a sweeter version of a good Saison.

Bozo_skeleton (675) - Grenoble, FRANCE - FEB 15, 2015
Blonde doree palichonne, gross carbo, collet epais et persistant. Aromes citronnés et fleuris, grosse presence levures. Un peu acide en attaque, elle s’adoucit par la suite. Présence peu marque de saveurs (un peu de citron). Assez courte. petite note de miel en finale Malgres ces quelques defauts relativement agreable

carcharoth (5) - gommegnies, FRANCE - FEB 4, 2015 does not count
Nez peu malté mais qui exprime bien la levure surabondante dans cette bière. Attaque en bouche citronnée agréable. Puis, terminé, la bière devient vite fade et trés lourde. Le fond de la bouteille n’est que levure. Pour moi, cette bière est brassée beaucoup trop rapidement , elle est sans équilibre, juste bonne pour un verre l’été mais alors bien fraîche, car réchauffée, elle ne tient pas du tout. Quant à la mousse, elle s’effondre très vite. A oublier comme bière de garde. Il en existe de bien meilleures dans sa région, La Bavaisienne ou la Cuivrée de Mormal par exemple de chez Theillier.

vyvvy (4540) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Pours lightly hazy golden yellow with a white head. The aroma has overripe fruit, cellar must, light citrus, rich smoothness, BdG thick yeastiness, light spice and some cobwebs. It has a medium smooth rich body with lots of frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with caramel, ripe fruit, cellar must, rich malt and some spiciness. The finish has more spice and some sulfur. Really well made biere de garde.

MrHangover (3062) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle @ THT December. Pours a clear golden beer with a bright white head on top. Aroma of soap, perfume, flowery hops and some light yeasts. Flavor is sweet, loads of perfume in there again, soapy. Aftertaste is sweet and light. Decent enough.
