potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Orange in color with big beautiful off white head. Aroma is black pepper, lemon/orange citrus, some sweeter notes, cedar phenolic notes and a touch barnyard. Flavor follows. Moderately low sweetness with phenolic spiciness and a citrus fruitiness with hints of hop that follow with lingering hop bitterness. A touch barnyard, a mellowed lemon/orange citrus ester, some phenolic wood, and BOOM... you got yourself a classic Saison.

26.2.14, butelka, 0,33l. Złoty, opalizujacy kolor, nieprzejrzysty. Estrowy, winny zapach. Przebija sie aromat stechlego chmielu. Niska, ale ladna piana. W smaku wytrawny, zaskakujaca, silna obecnosc chmielu- gorzki posmak, wyczuwalna goryczka. Kwaskowy "after taste", piwo czuc na podnibieniu. Przyjemnie nasycone. Wytrawne, sciagajaca goryczka, gorzko-kwasny finisz. Jest ok, ale wieksze wrazenie zrobil na mnie saison z francuskiego browaru Thiriez, oferowal znaczne glebsze odczucia smakowe.

paologalloni (89) - ITALY - FEB 23, 2014
Aspetto oggettivamente bellissimo. Schiuma persistente e abbondante grana media Aroma lieve con note metalliche che aumentano con lo scaldarsi della birra. Agrumato quasi impercettibile. Amaro ben dosato come nella tradizione de ranke Non si sente o meglio non si sente sufficienza l’acido lo della tradizione e dello stile

0,33 fles. Amber kleurig troebel bier met minimale kraag. Aroma is fris, granny smith. Smaak is dun, fris, licht zuur met bittertje in de afdronk. Blijft even hangen. Verder wat waterig.
