Red-amber colour. Aroma is complex with yeast, wood, hay, white grape, citrus. Flavour has woody dryness and quite a lot of tart, fruity overtones.

jfb (3796) - Freising, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
(bottle) pours a hazy deep amber colour with a frothy light beige head. aroma of heavy canned peaches and manure, quite earthy, with lots of hazelnuts, honeymelon, roasted meat and yeast. flavour is mostly chestnut honey and caramel, very sweet, with notes of herbal tea, dandelions, alcohol and a very dry medium-bitter finish, quite unbalanced. full-bodied with soft carbonation.

Benzai (8145) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 75cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Ansjelaah, judyvv and Joes @ weekly tasting. Opaque reddish color, small off-white to beige head. Smell malts, brett, saison-ish. Taste malts, herbs or spices, weirdness, pepper. Don’t like the taste at all, although the aroma is quite decent imo. Not my thing I guess.

Koelschtrinker (10516) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 5, 2014
Säuerlicher, leicht blumiger Antrunk mit deutlicher Hefenote. Fruchtig, die Hefigkeit steigt. Das Aroma bleibt dann konstant, wenig herb, vollmundiger hefiger Abgang mit malzigen Beinoten und leichten Kräutern. 12/11/10/10/11/10

Best by: e,Oct, 2013 A: Pours an orange-brown ale with hazy clarity. A single finger of white, soapy head falls eventually to a quilt of the same. No lace. S: Apple, grain, yeast, some hay and funk. I quite like this, smells crisp, fruity, refreshing. T: Saison with a funky edge to it. Some hay, some apple skins, some nice lactic tartness. M: Heavy body with moderate carb. Dry crisp finish. Normally I would prefer my saisons to be a little thinner, but this suits the beer well. O: Great stuff, not what I expected, and definitely I would recommend as a textbook example of the style, but excellent nonetheless. If somebody wanted to try something new in the saison category, I would recommend this. Serving type: bottle 07-19-2011

Monstrous off white head on a copper color. Aroma of yeasty esters and stone fruits. Flavor is super fruity with almost a little tang. Definitely a good amount of yeast as well. Really really nice with a great complex flavor
