In bottle, bought from Stirchley Wines in May 2012. Aroma very Belgian, with yeastiness and candi sugar, lifted slightly by the hops. Taste shows up that expected tartness from the saison style, but with bags of lemony citrus notes making it very refreshing. Finish is clean and quite dry, not as sweet as the initial aroma would indicate. was surprised to read it was hopped with Citra as this wasn’t coming out much in the flavour, but on reflection it may have been a clever use of the hop so that it brings out the citrus flavour without dominating. Very refreshing and great for the hot weather.

This poured a cloudy medium yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots and lots of spice and yeast notes, and some fruity hops in there too.

DrSilverworm (6371) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
12oz bottle. Nice, mostly hazy yellow-orange color. Good, foamy white head, extends just over the top of the pint glass. Nice, soft refreshing sort of carbonation, very farmhouse-style. Dry texture. Good lace. Nice, spicy hop taste, some belgian yeast in there. Maybe some pear and orange peel. Some zesty sweet taste. Very nice to enjoy with some morning salmon. Interesting and unique brew, pretty well done.

A nice a solid saison from this brewery. I gotta admit, I saw that Flying Dog did a saison and I wasn’t thrilled or expecting much, but they blew my socks off with this one. Aroma was decent. Classic saison smell. Slightly funky, cheese, light malt and dank hops. Pour was extremely clear for an unfiltered beer. Light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was nice and refreshing. Strong lemon, orange peel and a hint of coriander in the front. The finish leaves behind more funk and a slight sourness. Nice carbonation. Probably one of the best beers I’ve had from them. Great job and brewing a tough to nail style!

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2012
From bottle at Park Bruges. Witbier-Belgian ale nose with orange peel, light funk, and a bit of hop character. Bright amber clear with light haze, topped with fluffy-foamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Nice hoppy Belgian ale notes with spice and a bit of funky character. Hoppy bitter finish and smooth after.

jfb (3818) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2012
(bottle) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of black pepper and pineapples, quite yeasty, with notes of mango, green asparagus, powdered sugar and banana. flavour is mostly the same, exotic fruits and yeasty pepperiness, slightly sweet, with a little too much caramel and some alcohol in the bitter finish. medium to heavy-bodied with lively carbonation.

Nice saison/framhouse ipa(?!). Sweet bitterness. Wet straw, yeast and bitterhops. Probably better after a month or two on the shelf so the bitterness calms down a bit

jookos (2149) - FINLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Bitter and sour. Malty, a bit bready notes. Hops present in a greenish kind of way. A really nice combination. As advertised, its like a saison with a good hopping.

streve (102) - Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2012
12oz bottle. Pour was a cloudy lemony shade with thick, two finger head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, citrus and spice. Tastes yummy! A nice carbonated hop front that attacks the palatte and finishes with a bitter lemony sweetness. Very little lacing and moderate head retention. A refreshing IPA!! Most enjoyable.
