Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
Pours hazy pale yellow with an impressive staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has yeast, malts, some biscuits and oranges. Just a touch of hops as well. Medium carbonation, light and lively mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit fruity, some apples, oranges and a fine hoppy edge. Light dry and bitter in the finish. Nice.

JorisPPattyn (8430) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2009
Gushing to fully muddy yellow-mustard beer with fluffy, dirty-ochre head. Very spicy and dry EU-hops nose, speciality grain, straw. Bit meaty ester over again grain juice, like a health drink, vita malz, perfumed. Fully grist-slick, like not fermented out. Seems... unfinished, somehow. Gushing means lack of control.

Bottle with Craig, consumed at mine 09-04-10 picked up at Dranken Geers, March 2010 Pours a hazy gold/light amber colour, busy carbonation this one rocketed out of the bottle on opening. Some spice, fuzzy but soft bitterness, good tanginess, touch of tangerine perhaps. A7 A3 F8 P4 Ov15 3.4

nimbleprop (5888) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 10, 2010
750ml bottle at the DC local tasting. Pours a hazy, yellow with a frothy white head. Floral aroma, slightly musty, hay, a little grass. Flavor is sweet, light lemons, light candy. Light on the palate and a little forgettable.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2010
A very nice little 5% saison. Big hoppy nose with some light cotton candy notes. Taste is fairly dry, lots of grassy, herbal hops, touch of sugar and golden fruits; peppery yeasts. Medium body is very softy with light moderate gentle carbonation. Lovely.

Jerre (2969) - Waregem, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2009
Thankx to proefzolder beershop ! A 75 cl bottle shared @ Heule. Almost clear golden color, and a good white head. Aroma, flowers, some little spice, sweetness. Medium body. Taste wow ! This is very good, bit malts-grains start gowing up in a nice hops bitterness. Dry finish. For a low alcoholic beer it’s wonderfull ! More of this stuff please !

JoeinDahlem (1377) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2009
75 cL bottle shared at Hasselt Beer Weekend. Dark gold color, and bubbles in the head are hypnotically, geometrically perfect. But they fade. Awesome aroma, sweet and floral with a citrus edge. Lightly sweet-grainy flavor rolls into a grassy bitterness. Dry. Oh, so dry. Classic Glazen Toren, even though this was the annual brew made by the womenfolk. Gets exponentially more quenching as you go. In a perfect world Glazen Toren would make this year round and send kegs across the land so that people may try it fresh.
