JulienHuxley (2940) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle from the bierkoning, bottled on 24/04/14. Pale hazy yellow pour with nice white head. Aroma is grainy, yeasty, nice subtle citrusy notes, not too hoppy. Taste is bitter, light citrus, tons of grassy flavors, light grain, quite dry, no malt sweetness. Palate is very light, good carb. Kind of a mix between a pale ale and a saison, which I assume was the objective. Easy drinking, yet fails to blow me away.

yngwie (13194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. A hazy, yellow beer topped by a small, white head. The aroma is soft and fruity, with a herbal touch, almost like lime but not quite. There’s a nice peppery touch and a yeasty hint too. Saison yeast and black pepper, lime and a herbal and grassy touch too. Full body, soft carbonation and quite dry. Lasting finish with a nice bitterness and a good saison yeast touch. Sure a beer I could repeat some times. 140717

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Lavender, lime and lychee bounce atop this Saison’s dryness and bitterness, creating a whirlwind of flavors.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the pale yellow mist.
-Bitterness is too intense for the rest of the beer’s highly approachable profile.
-Drinkability could be higher.
-The natural carbonation is soft.
-The floral component is salient.

Bottle.
