zacgillbanks (1872) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014

Benzai (6460) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle shared with Illuvatarmilan. Slightly unclear yellow color, medium sized quickly diminishing white head. Smell is weird, unusual. Probably the lime influence. Taste also clearly has lime and lightly hops. Not that typical saison-yeastyness. Nicely balanced, but nothing really stands out. Nice beer though. Quite refreshing.

Beese (1152) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle at the Exmouth Arms, London on 15 February 2014. Poured a clear, pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Fruity aroma with some citrus, grain and spice. Some slightly sour citrus zest flavours with notes of honey and straw. Finish was quite crisp; light grassy hops, lemongrass and cereal.

RichTheVillan (2132) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy yellow pour with massive frothy white head, yeast and grass aroma, taste has citrus, hay, biscuity malts, lemon and lime, powdery yeast, very pleasant.

Idiosynkrasie (3273) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
330ml bottle. With the first pours clear, later hazy yellowish golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Aroma has a lime note, hints of peppermint and basil, a floral touch of hay, an unspecific vegetable background. Taste is dry and moderately tart, hints of lime, peppermint and basil, backgroundish the typical Grisette flavours. A nearby, obviously matching combination, sadly not fully working resp. leading to the rather monotonous result of damped vibration.

tiong (3077) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2014
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 17/12/2013 - Pours clear yellowish orange with a small head. Aroma of lime, zesty and stingy fruitness, some tartness, spices, hints of pungent vegetables. Taste is sweet, zesty and fruity with loads of lime peel, hints of tartness, yeast and spices. Finish is smooth, slightly hoppy and zesty with lime notes. Not very balanced, as the lime overpowers everything here.

BenH (2032) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma is quite yeasty, peppery and phenolic, some light citrus. Taste is quite yeasty again, peppery, earthy and little citrus. Quite crisp and dry. Refreshing, nice
