Pours magnificent yellow/gold, with extremely thick, lacy white head that lingers. Smells of malt, flowers, and hops. Complex, light flavors. Some funkiness. Cloves, salt, malt, citrus, spices. Very effervescent and dry, with a touch of stickiness.

On tap, 25cL. @Festival_de_Namur. Always love this landscape in a beer : orange on top to yellow on the bottom, opaque. Foamy white head. Good persistence. Spicy aroma, herbs, smoke, light fruit (lemon). Medium dry bitter, light sweet. Good balance. Medium body, light texture, average to fizzy carbonation, bitter finish with a sweet note. Overall, a good saison : easy to drink, refreshing, nice hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Visual: Pours a lovely clear bright golden yellow with a largish super foamy lasting head, thick sticky lacing, a nice thick layer of retention, abundant clusters of fast activity. A beautiful sight.
Nose: Sour citrus wheat malts, barnyard. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp malty, almost salty
Mid-palate: creamy smooth, some fizziness, (lvl-4)-sweetness, light-medium sourness, (MAIN) wheat malts, elderflower, lemon citrus, lager sweetness
Finish: excellent bitter hopped transition, grainy sweet wheat finish.
Summary: Drinks like a very nice creamy textured sweet lager with a bit more hop character. Not at all the like your typical sour saison. Very drinkable.

shared @ DE-CH-F TriStateTasting, with special thanks to bartlebier!
Faint smell of elderflowers, mouthfeel a bit too foamy imho, taste is a bit fruity, a bit woody, a bit cellary, a bit floral.

Froral and hoppy (in the Belgian way) saison. Body is still dry and grassy, but the aroma hops and flowers make it more of a forest beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Unibirra Calcinate del Pesce. giallo dorato, velata con schiuma bianca grossolana persistente. aroma complesso, floreale (non avrei detto sambuco se non avessi letto gli ingredienti, ma il profilo aromatico č ben definito) con evidenti accenni di frumento e fruttato agrumato. Note erbacee e speziatura, meno intense ma presenti. Gusto secco, acidulo, decisamente fresco al palato, quasi pungente. Poco calda e non molto carbonata. Equilibrata ed armonica.
