dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Poured into a wide-mouthed abbey glass. Appearance is clear amberish gold with a one finger head. Aroma is sour cherries with sweet tarts and hints of citrus peel, hay, and slightly detectable funk. Taste is sweet funky barnyard, cherries, light grain, and a long citrusy, bitter finish. Body is medium-full with lively carbonation, finishes super super dry with sourness and lasting fruitiness. Overall, this is probably the best saison I’ve ever had, just as complex as it is dry and thirst-quenching.

maus (32) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2013
Golden colour, slight haze. The bottle was a bit overcarbonated. Aroma is fresh, a bit sweet, earthy hops, maybe some spices. Taste is mild, quite good balance. Aftertaste leaves a nice touch of European hops, slight bitterness. Very good beer.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Pours a slightly cloudy dark golden yellow/ripe banana color with light golden yellow hues when held to a light source. Two finger white head with decent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring that leaves sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Bready yeast aroma with subtle spice and lots of estery light fruit notes. Lots of apple, pear and banana with subtle clove and peppery spice. Surprisingly fuller bodied with lots of peppery spice, crisp light fruit and earthy hops. Very complex and well balanced with lots of apple, pear, banana; clove and bready yeast. Slightly tart and earthy lingering into a dry finish.

Grzesiek79 (3179) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Piwo dobre zapach perfumowany, egzotycznych owocow. Nieco trawiasty i orzechowy. W smaku lekkie chmielne goryczkowe i umiarkowanie slodowe. Wyglad metne drozdze i sporo piany ktora jest trwala.

mike_77 (3037) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2009
Bright yellow colour with lumpy foam head. Sweet aroma with some yeast. The high carbonation fizzes the spiciness over the tongue. Then it becomes a bit sweeter before finishing with a hint of dry hop.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Pours bright hazy golden with huge foamy white head. Nose shows crisp grassy hops, fresh hay, bright lemons, and some hints of sourness. Tastes is the same, with added notes of raw almonds (the malt, perhaps) and lemony Brett sourness. Bit of white pepper and oak. Maybe there is a high degree of bottle variation, but I think this is much better than it’s ratings suggest... a cheaper cousin to Orval. Excellent.

bmerz (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle. A very pretty hazy bright yellow beer with huge head and good lace. Quite aromatic citrus, grains, and hay. Taste is moderately sweet matly and bitter with notes of yeast, lemon pith, and juniper, and anise. Super soft texture with some yeasty chalk tingle in the back of throats. Fairly astringent other than being over carbonated and erupting from the bottle this is lovely super velvety hoppy yeast goodness.

Vignale (2033) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2013
Flaska från beernavigator. Gyllenfärgad, disig, vitt cm-tjockt skum som bildar lock. Frisk doft av citron, örtig och jästig doft. Lätt kropp, lite oljig och vetegräddig, mycket jästkaraktär, pomerans, citron, koriander. Lite wit-karaktär men stramare och med en större beska. Mycket pomerans i eftersmaken. Riktigt bra!

Bottle. Aroma is a bit manure like (!), but also grainy, herbal. Taste is good, light and refreshing, bit of sweetness, lightly floral, yeasty.
