   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
BigBeer45 (1307) - Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Sampled from a bottle, this ale had a hazy pale orange-yellow pour and presented a large, foamy, lasting white cover from lots of carbonation that receded a bit and clung to the glass, the nose had a mix of aromas of funk, flowers and faint malt, a little citrus orange and white grape, and some coriander spice, the flavors were light bready malt and wheat with citrus, white grape and coriander spice that was a bit much and gave a spice bitterness to the finish, the finish had a spice bite and bitterness that appeared off on the mouth, the coriander lingered on the mouth, the mouth feel was light and bubbly/fizzy from lots of carbonation, the nose seem to have some funk and was nice but the flavor was overly spiced with coriander, the flavor was not as good as the nose and was disappointing, I enjoyed the nose much more than the flavor, it was an ok drink but I do not recommend.

Cloudy golden bear with a white head, medium carbonation. Tastes like coriander, fruity, bitter (hop), sweet Belgian malt, citrus and spicy. Nice one.

DutchMark (236) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Although technically it is not a saison I quite like it. Looks nice misty yellow with a good white head and pleasant carbonation. Flavor is yeasty funky with orange peel spices and a metallic hint. Basically it is a belgian white with a heavier body.

Matt_Foran (89) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Nice hazy yellow color with foamy, fluffy head. Pick up wheat, yeast easters, spice and cloves. Pick up some spicy notes from spices, wheat flavors. Solid flavors linger on the palate.

Yellow hazy, creamy white head. Smell of yeast esters, spices, clove, light citrus, light malts and hints of soap. Moderate sweet, quite fruity, yeast influence, light hints of citrus and a spicy touch. Moderate bitter finish

monk191 (1233) - California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Not a good saison at all. Pours a cloudy beige with a soapy head. not appetizing at all. Aroma is fine, lemon and some floral notes. Taste is very dry, with just lemon and an almost tart finish, acidity that sits on your toungue. Had in the bottle.

Ysok02 (246) - MOns, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2015
Robe blonde, mousse peu persistante. Nez assez discret, sur des notes épicées, touche de banane et de levure. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, une belle fraîcheur, mais un milieu de bouche assez creux, finale levurée. Une saison agréable mais qui manque un peu de fraîcheur.
