Keg @ Stormbird, Camberwell. The pour’s a hazy, bright gold color with a modest white head. The nose is of banana mash, spices. Plenty of generally bucolic aromas, belgian yeast. The taste is mild tropical fruit, lemon zest, farmhouse yeast. Nicely chalky, dry finish. Very refreshing. Mild marshmallow and bubblegum sweetness. Light body, wonderfully expressive. Easy to drink, especially considering the ABV. Overall, a really solid beer. Well made stuff.

On keg from The Beerhive.
Small white head, body is light golden amber. Nose of citrus, some apple and bubblegum. A fair bit of carbonation in the mouthfeel, swells nicely. Flavours of tropical fruit and more bubblegum, which lingers on the aftertaste with a small amount of bitterness. Really good beer.

Had this beer on tap at Soba in Pittsburgh. Loved it so much I bought 2 bottles when I got home. Hazy golden color with lots of carbonation and a pillowy white head. Flavor is spectacular - crisp lemony citrus start, immediately followed by a quick punch of Belgian yeast, then a looong lingering combination of oakiness and slight hints of vanilla. This is a complex, sophisticated beer that makes you want to take the next sip to experience the taste again.

Drunk f/ 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow color. Billowy off-white head. Aroma of malt and faint lemon. Taste is dominated by a dry lemon and hops. Followed by malt flavors. Light body. Finishes with alcohol and faint spice while the dry lemon zest persists. A bit watery on the palate.

Pale, cloudy yellow with lots of watery lace (my favorite). Unique in that it’s dominantly fruity -- pears, green apples, lemon -- yet also very dry, not at all sweet. Kind of like beer’s answer to champagne, but not as carbonated. A winner.

At Soba. Floral zasty lemon aroma. A slight bitterness from the hops. The lacing is perfect all the way down the glass.

Unclear golden yellow, big rocky white head slowly settles and lasts. Fruity, yeasty, wheat malt aroma. Fruity peppery spiced saison taste, lightly bitter lemony citrus hops. Lively carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Clean dry finish, well made. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
