tom10101 (2726) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy bright golden/orange with a medium fully lasting off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is exactly what a Saison should be... yeast, citrus, floral and herbal notes, spices, light sweetness. Taste is citrusy with floral/herbal notes, yeast, light sweetness, some spices and a moderate long lasting herbal bitter finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Very good Saison. Drinkable and quenching. Exactly what a Saison should be. This one is up there with Dupont. Really nice!

langeveld12 (217) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Pours an average frothy white head that slowly diminishes. Body is hazy yellow. Aroma contains light malts (dark bread, starw, molasses), light hops (herbs, spruce, citrus fruits), light dough (leather, dough) and vanilla, banana, sweet apple, spices, grape and pineapple. Flavor starts off light acidic, then goes to sweet and light acidic and finishes in dry bitter. Finish is long. Body is medium with soft carbonation and creamy texture. I like this one, it's fresh and tasty and its finish makes you remember it.

Frisk doft av citrus och bubblegum. Medelfyllig smak av jäst och pulvergodis och lätt bitter eftersmak. Lättdrucken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2247) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle. Moderate light bread and straw for the malt, moderate to heavy herbs for the hops, moderate dough and mustiness for the yeast, with hints of pear, ginger, pepper and paper. Head is large, frothy, off-white with a beige swirl, with thick heavy lacing, and is fully lasting. Color muddy light amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic, then finishes faintly sweet, lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, dry, with a lively carbonation. A more complex and flavorful Saison then the more common ones I’ve had.

Abijen (1432) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2013
Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fresh, lemon, bit vomit. Tastes malts, licorice, dark fruits. Didnt expect this. Nice. Average to lively carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

Y. (9) - Bornem, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2013 does not count
Geur: lekker fris, licht zoethout en kruidig. Maar vooral ook subtiele hop Schuim: mooi romig licht beige Smaak: vrij hoppig, licht moutig, vooral ook bloemig en fris! Kan mij dit perfect inbeelden te drinken als ik een veld aan het afdoen ben Sowieso een van de beste saisons in mijn opinie
