From bottle into Julius glass. Says World’s Best Saison (WBA 13). Actually a bit on the hot / viscous side for me - I like really dry saison. Can’t beat the pour though - head sat up out of the glass and stuck for minutes (until I finally started drinking it). For me, a long way to go to compete with my favorite saisons, but overall fine.

A light yellow beer with a big and white head. A fresh aroma, lots of fruits and spices, lemon, coriander and flowers. Taste has fruits, lots of spices, quite dry, also some bitterness, black pepper and lemon. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Very refreshning and strongly spicy beer.

Bosskie (382) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2014
Huge foamy head. Transparent head. Citric bready smell with subtle fruitiness and light herbiness. Taste is fizzy watery bitterness with subtle fruit, alcoholic twang. Very well balanced but a bit too astringent at the end. Nice and relaxed beer.

petewhitley (334) - JAPAN - JUL 23, 2014
floral, citrus, herbs, golden, hazy, frothy, white foam, lightly sour, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, bitter. Very foamy, nice and golden. Pleasant taste, though a bit thin and soapy. Good but let down but by the fact that it’s unmemorable; in this category there’s enough variety that I wouldn’t choose this over the competition.

Bamsen78 (3107) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Draught @ Bier- & Eetcafé Gollem, Antwerp. Pours hazy light amber with stable, creamy white head. Clear aroma of hops and spice, with notes of citrus and malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of herbs and yeast, and some malty touches. Bitter and slitly spicy aftertaste. Decent.

Vignale (2033) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Flaska från bier-deluxe. Gyllengul disig småbubbligt medelhögt vitt skum. Doft och smak är klassisk saison. Frisk, jäst, säd, örter, jord, citrus, halm. Aningen starkare än genomsnittet och alkoholen slår igenom något. Något större beska också med lite bittra örter a la besk snaps. Trevlig, välgjord men inget som sticker ut kvailitetsmässigt. Bra helt enkelt.

PAle yellow. Light, ticks all the boxes. Fruit, dryness and funk. Those three well balanced. Elegant. No need to tweak this. Ever.
