superspak (2542) - 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.

Bottle. Golden orange with a small white head. The aroma is spicy, citrus, yeast, coriander. The flavour begins sweet, becoming tart with flavours of orange peel, coriander, lemon, and light malt. A nice beer but not nice enough to scribe more than 40 characters.

mgajdaczewa (482) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 15, 2014
W aromacie spora słodowość i belgijskie drożdże, brzoskwinia i winogrona, może troszkę przypraw i lekka nuta chmielowa, przyjemnie, choć klasycznie. W smaku pełne, musujące, o wyraźnej biszkoptowej słodowości z nutami brzoskwini i przypraw. Nieco miodu i winogron.

Voor mij persoonlijk de minste van de Moinette-bieren. Dan zijn de blonde en donkere beter.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget. Gyllenfärgad, för klar sedan allt disigare, högt vitt skum. Frisk, vetesyrlig och jåstig doft. Gräs, örter, pepprig beska, nejlika, syrliga äpplen, citrus. Mycket väl dold alkohol, lättdrucken, viss sötma men frisk och välbalanserad. Någonstans mellan lite starkare blond och saison. Riktigt gott.

brnandersen (1863) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2014
25 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, golden colour with an amber tint. Big, creamy white head that fades to a fat cap. Fruity aroma with yeasts, spices - particularly pepper. Peaches and citrus, some hay and earthy hops. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with earth, yeasts and a nice fruitiness. Lovely Belgian.
