superspak (3747) - Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2012
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 printed on the cork. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 3 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pepper, coriander, earth, clove, pear, wheat, grass, hay, bread, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, pepper, clove, pear, wheat, bread, grass, hay, coriander, earth, herbal, floral, and big yeast spiciness. Light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, wheat, pepper, clove, coriander, bread, earth, grass, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor complexity and balance; very crisp and fairly dry finish; no cloying flavors at all. Great malt flavor to spiciness balance as well. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy, chalky, and fairly prickly and crisp mouthfeel that is excellent. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely world class saision. Insane balance and complexity of flavors; extremely crisp and smooth to sip on. I am going to have to revisit the normal Saision Dupont soon to compare; this is apparently the organically brewed version of that. WOW.

ciocanelu (353) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 21, 2015
Hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma has some nice citrusy esters with some spicy notes. Taste is slightly sweet and fruity at first and gets more bitter and spicy towards the finish. Body is quite smooth for a belgian beer but also well carbonated. Really good saison overall.

Assez sèche et amère en bouche, avec un goût de céréales très prononcé. C’est vraiment particulier, faut aimer.

750ml corked bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy golden yellow color forming a huge and fizzy white head with excellent retention and tons of soapy lacings formed and left in the glass. Nose is a classic Belgian Ale: sweet, spicy, bready, peppery and herby. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, coriander, black pepper, cloves and herby hops. Slightly sweet upfront in the mouth. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, candi sugar, apples and pears, coriander, black pepper, sweet bread. Nice hippy bitter end. Medium body. Strong carbonation. Sweet, fruity and spicy aftertaste. Excellent drinkability. Classic Belgian ale. Strong Belgian character. Excellent ale.

Akiro (28) - ITALY - OCT 31, 2015
Degustata in bottiglia da 75 centilitri. Colore giallo oro leggermente torbido, schiuma persistente. Birra onesta forse manca giusto un po’ nell’aroma però il gusto è dolce ed immediatamente speziato pur essendo il retrogusto leggermente acido ed amaro sul finale, comunque si beve bene ed è ottima per accompagnare anche i pasti oppure per un aperitivo.

Versa color ambra, un pà opaco,bella e spessa schiuma bianca. Al naso è sentore di limone, fieno, malto di cereali, pane, fieno,. Gusto dolce come di meringa cotta. Una gustosa birra fresca.
