Aroma is lemons, spices and mildly skunky. The flavor is lemons, light sugar notes, spices, grassy hops and a mix of tangy and mild/medium heat.

Saison per modo di dire, che al classico floreale intreccia una presenza dolce molto più classicamente belgian ale. Buonina.

Ernest (6231) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle (BB Oct 2015). Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (corn starch, cracker), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of coriander, lemon zest, grains of paradise. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. A saison only in the Americanized sense...lots of added spice presence...but at least it’s not overly sweet or boozy. Fairly tart. Overall just ok.

Ceci n’est pas une Saison, mais un blend. Rien d’intéressant. Rafraichissant à boire, mais sans plus.

MarcoDL (2226) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle. Bit standard saison, with a thin body and notes of grassy hops and some yeast. Bit too much like a grassy Belgian blond, instead of a saison.

Een saison die iets te warm uitgeschonken is waardoor mijn rating misschien iets te laag is. Het is lekker, maar niet wauw

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.
