Eructoblaster (3844) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle - 750ml. Slightly hazy, golden body with lively carbonation and a thick, lasting, white foamy head. Fresh herbal aroma with malty, grainy, and yeasty hints. Its sharp malty/hoppy taste carries herbal and grainy notes. Ends with a long herbal, slightly sour finish. Excellent example of Saison.

muzzlehatch (4773) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2016
750 ml bottle from Artale in Rockford, IL, consumed at cellar temp in a Duvel glass. Huge pop from the cork which tried to fly away, but the bottle doesn’t really gush...foam is thick, snow-white and chunky in the glass leaving voluminous residue atop the lightly bubbly, moderately cloudy gold body....lustrous aroma of vanilla (subdued), cider, fresh grass, light barnyard and a hint of leather...body is quite dry throughout, lots of mineralic character towards the end, only a rare touch of honey sweetness near the middle, very dry and more bitter than usual on the finish...soft mouthfeel, less carbonation than the big cork-pop and pour would indicate, lightly syrupy texture as it warms. Doesn’t quite deliver what he wonderful nose promised, but still on the whole quite excellent.

Lilja (2792) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2016
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, jäst, citrus, hö, gräs, jord, kryddor med toner av ladugård, vete, korn och äpplen. Torr, lagom sötma, välbalanserad, rena smaker, en lätt och fin saison. Mycket gott!

jc1762 (805) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Tap into a snifter showing well filtered yellow with two fingers of clean white foam. The nose shows deep farmhouse notes with a smokiness that combines to be similar to bacon. The palate is well carbonated but smooth and fluffy with a medium body. Clean bready malt but subtle; there’s very little flavor here. Very mild bitterness on the finish. Overall, a bit thin.

Samuel214 (555) - SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2016
Flaska från SB. Spökligt blekgul, disig med rejält högt och fluffigt skum. Bananig, lätt syrlig och kryddig doft med en del koriander och höiga toner. Relativt lätt kropp. Nära doften i smaken med tillskott av en snäll beska och apelsinskal. En elegant och lätt saison!
