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.

Cloudy pale straw with billowy white head. Aroma is clove, banana, sugar, and dough. Taste is too sweet with a lot of spice. Meh.

19.6.2014. Very pale and hazy, thick white head. Nice Belgian aroma with yeast, wheat, spices, esp pepper. Taste doesnt fulfill aromas expectations completely. There are similar peppery spices, some yeast, but some stuffiness.

sonotono (65) - torino, ITALY - FEB 28, 2015
Colore oro carico, leggermente torbida. Odore dolciastro fruttato. Corposa, gustoda, dolciastra, finale secco, una punta di aspro. Una via di mezzo tra una belgian strong ale e una tripel.

MMR (443) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Pours a thick yellow/orange structure and a nice thick foam head. Very nice aroma of yeast, nuts, fruity and a champaign-like bitter (aftertaste). A very lively taste.

Moinette bio de 25 cl. On a donc moins dans son verre … que la classique. Mais il est vrai que les produits bio étant plus chers .. on peut en mettre moins dans la bouteille … Laissez-moi rire. Qui plus est elle est diminuée aussi en abv : 7,5 au lieu de 8,5 pour la classique. Là par contre, aucune explication ne peut être proposée !!! Donc nous avons une blonde non filtrée, et avec du sirop de blé ( le bio fait du sirop, ça rime …). Couleur blond doré un peu orangé, avec un léger voile. Bulles partout extrêmement vives. Mousse blanche très épaisse, avec une belle texture en haut. Arômes de malt, blé, houblons fins et épices fines. 1ère bouche souple, maltée, avec du houblon en rétro-nez. Arrière-bouche pleine, très équilibrée. 2ème à la texture superbe. Arrière-bouche avec douceur et bel équilibre. 3ème sur un bel ensemble malt / houblon. Arrière-bouche un rien en retrait. Longueur très agréable, avec un belle amertume. Jambes assez collantes. Levure de très belle veine, fine. Alcool un peu en retrait par rapport à l’originale, et moins apte à un travail maximum. Finale très sympa, mais pas au top. CONCLUSION : une bière avec moins de volume, moins d’abv, moins de présence, moins de profondeur que l’originale. Mais il est vrai que celle-ci partait de très, très haut !! Donc que pouvait gagner le brasseur à en faire une version bio ? La réponse est simple : moins de points ...

Bue en bouteille de 25cl. Couleur jaunâtre, fine mousse blanche peu persistante. Arômes de miel, d'agrumes. Peu complexe, équilibre moyen. Déçu.
