2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I suppose it is entirely appropriate to have this at a very cold outdoor event. Like, 5 degrees F... Unfortunately, I found this unpleasant, with too much hops and too bitter of a finish for the saison style, though some variation has been apparent in American renditions, to be sure. (on tap at Winter Beer Dabbler, January 2014).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from City Beer. Pours golden with a decent off-white head and a fruit and toffee aroma. There is a tropical fruit (mosaic?) and caramel malt flavor that starts sweet then turns bitter. Tastes more like an IPA than a saison.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Tulip shows a orange gold color with lasting, thick foamy head. Nose is fruity Belgian yeast with a nice dose of floral hops. The yeast starts off the flavor upfront with nice passion fruit, orange pith and grapefruit. The floral earthy hops take over mid-sip and leads to a lightly dry lingering bitterness. It drinks with a lot of bitterness almost like a double IPA with a lot of sweet malts to balance. Highly hopped for the style and it works real well. Very nicely made.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong wheat aroma, clear hay coloured, thin head and quite smooth. Strong hops flavour, a bit floral, well worth a try.
