ClarkVV (4086) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Draught at Trois 8, 4/24/15
Two-finger white head tops a lightly hazy, tangerine-hued golden body with light carbonation. Head retention is strong.
Soft hay, fresh herbs, pepper and honeyed malts provide a clean aroma with just a touch of playful yeastiness adding light mineral notes and a touch of acidity.
Fantastic, nearly silky texture is carried about by the ample carbonation, leaving pure malt honey flavors, fresh flowers and herbs and soft bitterness dancing about. Well-attenuated but still with enough malt to keep interest. Listed as a biere blonde at the bar, I would hold that it is indeed a blonde belgian ale, as there very little farmhouse character here (certainly no funk, and no brett that others speak of). Delightful though. What all the other awful Franco-Belgian Bieres Blondes should be. Actual malt flavor, complex hop character and no soulless, pumped-out feel to it.

freretoc (1081) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 18, 2015
Bue à la pression en 25cl à l’express de Lyon Paris, si c’est une saison il y aune couille dans le pâtée, couleur blonde, peu de mousse grosse effervescence, très acide en bouche, elle est assez maltée et avec un goût de pêche... Bizarre

erickok (4168) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 21, 2013
No gushing, but it kept in foaming after opening. Yellow murky body with big stable pillow y head. Oranges, toasty base, farmhouse, herbal hops. Saison like, I like it. Belgian yet not sweet, dry bitterness and foamy. Won’t appeal to everyone. It does to me. (33cl bottle from La Houblonière Toulouse)

TEJA (1536) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2013
Sampled at omhper, thanks Per. Wild gusher. The short white head containes brown flakes. Thick chicken broth appearence. Wild yeast aroma. Light acidic combined with a typic Saison taste.

omhper (20759) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2013
Bottled, from La Cave à Bulles, Paris. Cloudy pale golden, gushing lively head. Milky lemon aroma. Mid sweet with underlying milky tartness. Light-medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Quite interesting flavour of honey, pineapple and white pepper, but a bit much lemony yoghurt.

Swaroga (1664) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2013
75cl bottle. Hazy yellow with huge carbonation. The bottle explodes and if you don’t have enough glasses to pour the mousse in you will spoil it on the floor. Nose ; soap , citrus, zest and wet hay. Spices. Sip : low to medium density liquid, oily texture, strong carbonation. Dry and sour. Strong spices like clove and liquorice and safran. It develops sour and spicy flavours untill the aftertaste. The bitterness is moderate and well balanced.

Quack-Duck (8391) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2013
bottle from Terres des Bières Paris. Cloudy straw-golden yellow, foamy head. Malty, slightly sour, barnyard and some herbal accents. Interesting.

Niksko (443) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2013
Pours cloudy golden yellow with lots of frothy white head. Aroma is lemon and barnyard. Taste is a slightly sweet attack, mostly sourness and then just the faintest bit of bitterness on the finish. Almost imperceptible. Not too bad, but not really complex at all.
