mathieuc (995) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Pours a light amber with a really weak head and almost no lacing. Nose is of overripe bananas, candi sugar... really weird/unusual for a "saison". Taste is sweet and not saison-esque at all, fruity. This isn’t even close to being dry, carbonation was moderate and mouthfeel almost sticky. Not unpleasant but definitely not a saison.

Buongiorgio00 (581) - - FEB 23, 2014
Saison decisamente luppolata, che seduce con note di frutta esotica, malto, e che combatte tra dolce e amaro per tutto il sorso lasciando il palato soddisfatto, punzecchiato da un tocco citrico che la rende ancora più particolare. Buona!

ShivanDragon (1264) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2014
koper/rood helder met schuimige licht kaki kraag die snel afvlakt. De aroma’s zijn redelijk zoet, mout, hop en redelijk alcoholisch. In de smaken komen als eerste de redelijk zoetigheid (bruine suiker) naar voren. matige/redelijk hopbittertje, licht fruig, citrus, caramel, pepertje, moutig karakter en redelijk bitter. medium body, glad van textuur, waarbij de afdronk lang bitter is.

jackl (3862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle @ Croydonia. The pour’s light amber with a small head. The nose is tart fruits, a bit of banana. Farty belgian yeast. Countryside, manure. The taste is similar. A touch of brett, peach, marshmallow. Slightly peppery. Some exotic passionfruit. Paper on the finish. Light body, fine carbonation. OK.

worldbeertaste (1550) - AUSTRIA - OCT 13, 2013
Medium amber with a medium, off-white, frothy, lacy, lasting head. Smells of mostly pine hops with yeast, paper and pepper. Some citrus as well. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Some maltiness. Light sweetness at first with some fruitiness but moves to a astringent dry yeast pine peppery finish. In part I enjoyed this beer but the carbonation seemed a bit strong, it had too much yeast for my liking amen I’m not overly a fan of the pine hops. Nonetheless, it was a nice change of pace and still enjoyable enough

Another great beer from De Molen. This saison is pretty dry, with lots of citrus and a little bit of grainy dirt. Tried at the Arendsnest in A’dam in 2013.

Leighton (9851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle at the Croydonia Tasting - East Croydon. Thanks to Jack for the De Molen. Pours clearish, amber-gold with a creamy tan head. Ripe citrus on the snout, some dough, orange. Medium sweet flavor with more citrus, orange merengue. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Ripe citrus fruits to finish, mild pale bread. Decent stuff.
