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.

Phil (179) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Outstanding beer. Superb aroma of dope, citrus. Made my head spin thinking someone had 2oz of the finest bud near by, but in fact it was the beer. Light, dry and refreshing - do not open one to share, as you’ll just drink it all. I hope this beer comes to be around for a long while. (there are few low number reviews below, looks like you had a duff bottle, since I have had more the 12 bottles of this, and none have been in that way infected)

Duracell (4) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015 does not count
750mL bottle, best before 2018. Another truely delectable saison from Hill Farmstead, in collaboration with Blaugies. Snow white head over a light yellow body. Aromas of cirrus, spices, powdery stone fruits. In the mouth, big farmhouse character, with several layers of flavours. Quite a rare complexity! I pick out some fruits, followed by a flow of straw, wet barn, to finish with a refreshing hoppy bitterness. What a beer!

Very murky dark orange. Aroma is moderately phenolic, flavour is horrible. Infection?

kermis (6568) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours cloudy yellow light brown with a small off white head. Aroma seems off, medicinal, elastaplast over peppery saison yeast and citrus. This surely must be a bad bottle. Flavour is light sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Zer0 (1165) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to Kermis. Pours murky golden with a fast dissipating head. Aroma is medicinal, sulfate, grainy, some citrus and grassy. Might be off. Fermentation gone wrong? Moderate bitter. Rather dry. Peppery. Sadly too overwhelming with band aid.

deanso (6326) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2015
botttle shared at THT May 2015 courtesy of Kermis. Thin white head. Cloudy blond pour. Medicinal taste. something wrong with this?

Concealer (909) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bomber. Hazy yellow with a foamy, white head lasting and lacing. Aromas of wheat, spelt, spice, yeast, pear and apple. Flavor is sweet and toasted grains, spice, pine, lemongrass, yeast, and light citrus, pear and apple. Medium bodied, crisp and dry. Highly carbonated.

fkoolen (509) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
75cl bottle at home. Beautiful hazy straw colour, quickly building white foamy head. Complex but incredibly balanced belgian yeasty spices (pepper and koriander) and vanilla/banana, floral, some funky and musty farmhouse tones, lightly tard, grainy malts, faint American hops and champagne-like mouthfeel, body and lingering but dry finish. Not a big saison-afficionado but this is a great ale.
