Bottle from Hopduvel. Cloudy golden yellow color, huge fluffy white head with nice retention and spiderweb lacing. Aroma of dusty grains, meadows, nectarine, qumquat. Taste is grass, scallions, earthy herbs, spice. Very nice.

theisti (3257) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 21, 2014
~12 oz tulip draft at The Foundry in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazy orange yellow with a well formed one inch white head. The aroma is fresh natural Saison yeast, herbal grass, soft orange pine hop, and general earthiness. Very engaging nose. The taste is a beautiful balance of the earth grain grass and the herbal orange pin hop, the yeast is present, mostly in the finish. The complexity and melding of the flavors is exquisite, this is delicious. The palate is medium bodied, gentle soft carbonation, yeast, crisp finish. Really nice beer.

rouhlas (194) - GREECE - OCT 18, 2014
From tap at BierCab, Barcelona. Hazy pale yellow color with almost white head. Aroma is light malty, hoppy, grassy, floral, spicy, yeasty. Taste is sweet and bitter, fruity, light funky. Light to medium thin body with hoppy bitter finish.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle, Real Gastropub, Honolulu.
Hazy, light tan. Aroma is big dusty saison yeast...lots of Blaugies on this one. Complex and the hops are a bit herbal as well. Has a fair bit of the dusty old barn yeast character, and a fair bit of pale malt sweetness. Fairly big body for the style. Effervescent, burpy. Hops lend a lot of dryness. I wouldn’t even pick it out as amarillo...the beer has a pretty strong Blaugies character. Once the yeast goes in the glass, the beer is softer...the yeast actually mellows and more sugars come out, contrary to expectations. Some of the hop is washed out of the finish as well.

ej (744) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2014
Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a fluffy white top. Aroma is citrus, apples, some faint banana and a little wheat tartness. Taste is a faint sweet, light maltyness at first, then into fruity esters and wheat pungency. Hints of pepper and clove in the aftertaste. Medium-light body with just above avg levels of co2.

Draught @ Gastropuben KICK Malt & Mat, Kristiansand
Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, orange, citrus and hint of rye. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long slightly dry and orange fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2014
On tap at Kick. A hazy orange colored beer topped by a small off-white head. Oranges, pine cones, some yeast and pale malts on the nose. A nice bitterness in the flavor, with fruityness.dominating. Some herbal and yeasty hints, with a fruity, herbal and yeasty finish. A strange one this one, sure lovely, but the yeast impact is too big. Still I have no problem drinking more than one glass of it. There’s also something resembling tap line rinse here, lightly chemical, don’t think it’s the lines though. Will return. 141016

Beer4000 (4522) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2014
On tap @ Kick. Unclear orange body with a fast disappearing off-white head. Strong and a bit unusually in aroma with citric fruit, oranges, apricot and spices. Flavor has sweet malt, ripe fruit, oranges, oranges zest, more citric fruit and spicy yeast. Medium body and pleasant aftertaste with some bitterness. A bit unusually as a Saison, strong in flavor, complex, a bit rough but refreshing and really nice. I just appreciate this more the more I drink.

susanamayer (211) - Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2014
he aroma is pretty full with spicy saison yeast, spicy to lime to hay open meadow. The taste has a pleasing hoppy bite with lime like citrus and a bit of floral hop bitterness and a dash of apricot.

erickok (3695) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 13, 2014
Golden body and stable head. Very farmy, rich light malts, cereal, classically hopped. Great mouthfeel, bitter enough, very satisfying. Great French style brew, fulfilling body. Try it! (75cl bottle shared with Alex and Dodo)
