PalCabral (156) - - MAY 19, 2013
Large bottle from systembolaget. Pours hazy light amber into the glass. The head is thick and frothy, indicating perhaps the use of wheat in the mash? The aroma is interesting, citrus and yeasty, not bad. The taste is unfortunately more bland or should I say one-dimensional. The hops take over and the softness in the palate cannot compensate for the lack of other flavors than prickly hoppiness. It’s a good representative for Saisons and effective in being giving more thirst. Unfortunately, the taste lacks some complexity and it is likely the chaser will be another beer altogether.

Nice. Deep yellow with just the right amount of carbonation. Flavor is fresh with malts, yeast and resinous bitter hops. Most saisons have some citrus and spice. Not on this one but it is well brewed and very tasty.

Simonh82 (3) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016 does not count
330ml bottle from Beer Boutique. A really great refreshing saison beer. Light gold with a little haze from the sediment. Strong hop bitterness, much more so than is normal for the style. A reasonable amount of hop aroma too, again more than it think is usual for the style. The yeast character, whilst very present was not overpowering and tasted clean rather than funky. I don’t drink a lot of Saison but I could really imagine sinking a few of these on a hot day.

phfyysik (450) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours golden with bubbling head. Aroma is old socks, vinegar, cheese, light mud, some fruits. Taste is sharp, bitter, spicy, old socks, rotten sewerage, dishwasher water. Not so good as I hoped.

The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Tastes of citrus lemon, mustiness, pepper. Crisp, clean, well balanced. Excellent.

CaptainTilven (123) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAY 13, 2016
Corps orange tirant sur le brun, trouble avec levures visibles; mousse blanche fine, serrée, crémeuse; bulles extrêmement fines à peine visibles. Arômes d’herbe, orange douce; végétal. Première bouche avec une douceur maltée en ouverture très vite rattrapée par une amertume prononcée; de ce fait, très apéritive. Met en valeur les produits de la mer; en l’occurrence, très bien avec des huîtres gratinées aux topinambour et salicorne.

Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av citrus, humle, örter, peppar, honung, belgisk jäst, apelsinskal, övermogna äpplen med toner av honung, jord och våta löv. Fruktig, lagom sötma, beska med smak av citrusskal.
