gnoff (7979) - Mölndal, - FEB 14, 2013
Draught at Tre Små Rum, Göteborg, on February 13, 2013.
Hazy to cloudy dark copper to brown color, dense tan head. Light acidic, spicy, hay, herbal, somewhat lactic scent. Sweet, alcohol, herbal, bitter, green flower stems/stalks taste. Bitter floral aftertaste. Warming alcohol. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Decent, though a bit too evident alcohol, and also the bitterness and sort of green floral notes does not go super well with my taste.

marcogrind (53) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 16, 2014
Copper, long lasting head. Nose of spices, fruits, yeast, esters. Taste is more citric in the end, but estery and spicy. Not properly a saison, maybe more a tripel.

rzymol (23) - - DEC 12, 2014
Excellent looking hazy dark amber with surprisingly long-lasting froth of tasty appearance. Barley-winish and smooth taste, with a bit of salty notes at the beggining, very pleasant. Citra and amarillo hops are composen in the well balanced matter. Alcohol is hidden nicely. Overall, a solid stuff from De Mollen.

Draught at The Euston Tap, London on 13 Oct 2012. Poured a hazy amber, with a thin off white head. Aroma was slightly sour, with some cooked berries and big malt. Caramel and burnt sugar in the flavour, with some dry grain. Finish was tinned fruit, warming alcohol and flowery hop.

Fin (7691) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle consumed at Un Bout Du Monde, Toulouse, Saturday 15th November 2014 Pours murky reddy/ambee with only a tiny rim if bubbles. Aroma fruity but also millpond. Taste is a little fuzzy hop but stewed slightly tart autumnal fruits. I get some cherry steeped in liquer. Soft but also thick mouthfeel, getting a littlw boozy cherry bakewell. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov13 3.3

SinH4 (274) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 31, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2014 Beautiful amber-orange color with huge fluffy white head. Butterscotch, caramel, malty aroma paired with spicy yeasts and a bit of hops. Boozy taste of sweet buttery malts and caramel. Also some tartness coming through. A hint of apple most in the finish. Cannot imagine this being a Saison, but it is super-lecker. Very special though.

mgajdaczewa (605) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Aromat słodki, słodowy, wyraźne ciasteczko z marmoladą brzoskwiniową, bądź z dojrzałych czerwonych jabłek, trochę jak barleywine. W smaku gęste, słodkie, słodowe z lekkim kwaskiem, bardzo owocowe, przeważa brzoskwinia i winogrona, goryczka lekko pestkowa winogronowa w odczuciu, krótki ale konkretny finisz, alko odczuwalne. Super!
