lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small head. Aroma is very strong with pungent rosemary, some citrus and grass. Flavour is very, very strong rosemary notes, orange peel, some basil, mild graininess, floral bitterness and mild yeastiness. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Even though the rosemary is extreme, the beer is very well balanced with other flavours. Really fresh as well.

SimonTja (262) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2014
Belgian yeast, bubblegum, a lot of it, very strong thyme aroma and taste, quite overpowering and very different, a bit hay, a bit grass, but the thyme and spices is waaay to overpowering.

bmerz (709) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle. Big dense head. Lots of sediment in the bottle. Aroma is very herbal particularly Rosemary. And fresh light grain. Flavor is very herbal but more white bread sweet, aged hops and very piney, lots of Brett funk. Creamy dense feel. Intense in a way, probably a good food pairing, refreshing and great if you know beer by itself.

Habanero (2619) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy, pale amber with an average white head. Aroma of yeast, oregano, thyme, citrus notes and bread. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice Saison indeed.

adrosson (148) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2014
This saison was a bit too syrupy and sweet for me. It has some good notes but prefer the other fantome to this one

Grzesiek79 (3208) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Dobre i nawet swietnie pachnace piwo jakby ziolami. W smaku Bazylia i tymianek i inne ziolowe przyprawy mi sie skojarzyly. Piwo sezonowe, przyprawowe i co roku ze zmienna receptura. Bazylia dla mnie tu dominowala. Za sprawa tych zio swietny akompaniament wloskich dan ze spaghetti na czele. Piana sredia i srednio trwala. Kolor metny od samego poczatku. Przyprawy tu zdecydowanie dominuja nad smakiem slodowosci niewiele ale przypraw i zio za to mnostwo. Polecam to wiosenne piwo

JefVerstraete (1296) - BELGIUM - APR 30, 2014
Hazy amber colour. Medium carbonation. Dry and yeasty aroma with lots of spices (thyme, oregano, ...). Sweet with bitter finish. A bit too much spices.
