Bottle from Chevy Chase Super Market. Hazy straw body with medium head. Nose is floral, grainy, fruity. Taste is of yeast, apples with wheat and malts. Sweet in the finish. Floral and apple bursts in the finish. Pretty good.

ffbot (261) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Pour is a semi hazy orange and yellow, no head. Lightly carbonated, easy to drink. Smell is grapes, grape peel, orange and other citrus, and white wine. Has that first taste of a dry white wine, then balances out with some bitter and sweet conflicting tastes. Very nice

Niksko (567) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2016
Pours a light golden with an off white head. Nose is clove, honey, banana, white wine, passion fruit, sweet syrup. Flavor is honey, clove, banana, sweet wine, floal notes, a little sweet and hot on the finish, and then tart and a little acidic. Medium to heavy body, a little syrupy. I?ve been waiting a long time to taste this, and it?s pretty tasty. The grapes meld well with the Belgian yeast character to make a tasty beer. I like the acidity and the very long finish.

Bottle shared @ RBBWG 2016. Clear yellow colour, no foam. Sweet nose of grapes, honey and grape skin. Tart taste with sourish notes. Fruity, well balanced. Alcohol very well hidden. Good!

On tap at brewery. Light golden straw colored pour, airy head. Wine/grapes come forth in the aroma, blend well for a nice tart, fruity taste. Clean but short finish. Solid Saison throughout.

Bouteille 75cl de Total Wine, Tampa. Dorée, léger voile, col épais blanc. Arôme offre un bouquet centré sur le fruité, ici le raisin et levure sont bien présent avec un petit rappel de cidre, touche houblonnée en rétro. Palais est agréable centré sur le fruité, la levure, mosto de raisin reste apparentée au cidre offrant une touche acerbe en fin de bouche. Ressent très peu du profil des houblons et encore moins de ce côté saison. Le tout est correcte en sachant que la bouteille date déjà de 2013.

Zlotta (1197) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2016
0.75 l bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen. Clear, straw yellow, white head. Sourish, slightly funky aroma of white grapes, gooseberry, lemon and some oak. Sweetish-sourish, minimally funky taste of white grapes, green apples, gooseberry and some oak, followed by a medium long, rather tart, dry finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and moderately astringent mouthfeel. Good!

Thank you for sharing Sebletitje! 750 ml. bottle shared @ RBBWG V. This one that I have been curious about for a long time. Paler citrus, white bubbles. Nose is basic sweetish lemon & dull grape & pear juice, mineral, basic white sugar sweet. Taste is dull weird mineral pear & white grape juice, mineral boring apple, light esters. Sof carbonation pear juice. I had high hopes but this is another DFH beer that didn’t live up to them, it’s okay but largely just dull sweetish fruit juice & uninteresting mineral qualities. Okay going to meh.
