MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big and blond firm foamy head. Yeasty, citrus-fruity, lemony and zesty aroma with notes of wheat, white bread and doughy malt. Bitter and delicately sweet flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry and delicately malty taste with fruity and slightly flowery hops, including notes of citrus and grapefruit; dry and bitter finish with hoppy and slightly peppery yeasty spice. A tad harsh but also quite likeable. 26.VIII.14

tricksta_p (1062) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Aroma of fruits, spicy yeast, bit peppery, slight malt. Flavour is fruity and yeasty, light sweetness, with a light bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasant Saison, but the yeast could be a bit more wild.

Travlr (11211) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
At the source. Hazy golden color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing.Nice funky barnyard aroma with dusty hay. Taste is funky raw bread, straw. Good stuff.

JulienHuxley (3019) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy gold pour with extremely lacy white head. Aroma is really yeasty, fruity and spicy yeast, lots of black pepper, hints of banana, strong wheaty notes, bready, ginger and clove. Taste is spicy and wheaty, really grainy, luckily it is pretty low abv so it isn’t cloying, but you could certainly use a bit more dryness and hoppiness here. Palate is light-med bodied, with good carbonation.

mile (2969) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average to large and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint fruitiness and light citrus with some spiciness (pepper, light coriander), light - some hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and dryish flavor, light citrus hoppyness and some spiciness, light hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, light citrus, some sharp and peppery spiciness, some hoppyness. OK dryish and peppery saison. Although body is bit thin.

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
Tap at Rootz at the Harbour, Scheveningen. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is yeast, very light grapefruit. The flavour is acid citrus with a light yeasty mineral citrus hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Not much in the way of flavour. A combination of light flavours with nothing that really stands out. Fine in the summer but I would not order a second.

gEUS (1044) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle at Emelisse. Pours clear golden with a steady white head. Spicy nose, rather peppery taste with only faint hints of malt... not a typical saison.

Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, vaahto on noin kolmen sormen paksuinen ja suht pysyvä sekä pumpulinen. Tuoksu on taattua saisonia: karviaismarjaista ja pippurista hiivaisuutta sekä sitrusmaista otetta, muttei ihan niin vahvana kuin tyylin parhaissa, eikä ihan yhtä raikaskaan. Maku on vahvemman pippurinen ja kirpeää sitruunaakin on paljon. Kevyttä karviaismarjaisuutta on myös joukossa. Suutuntuma on hyvin hiilihappoinen ja jopa hieman hapan. Humalakin kutittelee kielellä mukavasti. Hyvä saison, josta kuitenkin puuttuu se parhaiden raikkauden ja täyteläisyyden yhdistelmä. Melko happaman kirpsakka.
