_angst_ (2757) - Göteborg, - JAN 11, 2013
750 ml bottle bought @ beerplanet.be. Pours hazy pale golden with a rather big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sticky trace and lacing on the glass. Smell is tiny fruity, tiny malty and tiny funky with crackers, cereal, hay, lemon zest, white grapes, dried crushed basil, wood, dry soil, white pepper and hints of barnyard, lemon juice and band aids. Taste is tiny bitter, tiny malty, slightly herbal, tiny tart and slightly funky with crackers, dry wood, cereal, cucumber, white grapes, dry soil, hay, white pepper, dried powdered coriander, lemon zest, barnyard and lemon balm. Mouthfeel is dry, tiny spicy astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny bitter, dry and tiny tart with crackers, lemon zest, grape skins, dry soil, hay and lemon balm. Solid...

Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a good white head. The aroma has notes of clove and yeast. Medium body, the flavour is dry. Crisp with a fairly strong bitterness.

Een fris zurig en licht bitter biertje. Is eigenlijk net wat te straf om lekker door te drinken.

Délicieuse Saison. Couleurs orange profond (bière non filtrée bien sur) petite tête blanche. Arôme fruitée et herbacé, avec une pointe de torréfaction... Saveurs riche et complexe... Je n'ai pas trouvé d'ailleurs le goût exacte qui apparaît en première bouche, pour le reste houblons, malt et levure belge sont dosés de façon très harmonieuse

Dit is voor mij persoonlijk een van de minst lekkere saison-bieren dat ik al geprobeerd heb

olsvammel (3034) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Fresh and fruity taste and smell with ripe apples. Also a light spicy aroma. Strong carbonation and noticable but not very strong bitterness.

ForlornHope (42) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
The aroma won’t be to everyone’s taste with sour, sharp, earthy aromas. Pours a pale orange colour. Taste is exceptional, sharp and bitter with peppery, earthy hop giving a lot of bitterness with very little sweetness to balance. Average carbonation, the finish is long and bitter. Overall a fine beer. Not for those with a sweet tooth, the hopping is superb but achieving great balance.

3fourths (7982) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 October 2010, bottle age unknown. sparkling gold body, tall white head, lasting retention. instant juicy fruit/bubble gum yeast esters and somewhat surprisingly high pale belgian candy sugar character clutter what would otherwise be a decent smelling beer: lightly floral, pillowy, moderately spicy phenols... but instead this is all covered with crystalline/sugared bubble gum esters. delicate and silky body, more sweet than I prefer saison, and again, dominated by bubble gum notes. will have to revisit. 6/4/6/4/14, 3.4

And then I did revisit... August 2014, bottled May 2014, 10 weeks old, 33cl bottle fresh from Dottignies. Lemon / herb hop nose, rustic yeast that’s just a tad rubbery. Dry (I don’t know how I got sugar and bubble gum), acidic, quenching, bitter and hoppy, astounding nice, gulpable... wow.... 4/8/4/8/16, 4.0
