Capped 750 from jredmond. Pours a sort of slightly pimked , very hazy grapefruit. Aroma is rather floral/citrus. Med body. Flavor is earthy orange, moving to lime, then floral with a slight brett suggestion. Rather dry and earthy/tart. Excellent.

marcus (7554) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with a transient off-white head and a sourish fruit aroma. There is a delicate pale malt flavor tinged with citrus and powered by a pleasant yeast presence. A slightly herbal finish.

gEUS (1471) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting. Very nice and refreshing nose: citrus peel, tangerine and some flowery hints. Medium body, well balanced and evolves from a smooth start to a quite bitter resinous end. Taste is citrus and grapefruit juice and peel. This is very nice.

2013 bottle. Light gold pour nice puffy white head. Nose is citrusy with some hay and grass. Taste follows the nose. Lime and citrus peel comes through wonderfully. Slightly herbal and fairly tart. Fairly dry finish. One of the better saisons I have had.

750ml bottle pours an orange color with a bit of head. Nice citrus flavor. It overpowers the yeast flavors. But still very refreshing.

750mL bottle from the source. Pours Orange red gold with a white head. Aroma is honey, funk, orange, lime. Soft and dry with flavors of orange and lime. Not really getting much hibiscus, but that’s fine. This is nice.

Bottleshare thanks to Leighton. Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Mild lactic sourness gives way to zippy generic fruits, lemon rises above. Dry and slightly tart finish also brings in a savoury note. Not bad at all.
