COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is our version of a strong palish Belgian Saison. We have chosen to give this beer a pale and light profile and let the yeast display its full spicy flavors. We have also added some coriander for more complexity. This will develop some tartness given the time.

eczematic (1306) - Sydney, - DEC 7, 2012
Very nice stuff, delicate malt, delicate floral hops, delicate mango and peach esters, delicate peppery zing from the yeast or the hops or both, nice and dry, bitter enough and well carbed - just a bit soapy from the heavy handed coriander addition.

Foffern (1061) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a cloudy light orange colour with a big, creamy, light beige head. Spicy aroma with citrus, hay, pepper, Belgian yeast and grass. The flavour is still spicy with a fresh touch of hay and citrus. Has a silky and slick mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A solid, fresh and tasteful saison.

Lys gul, medium skum. Aromaen er gjær, kjeks, humle. Smak samme. Litt tørr. God, men ikke veldig avansert.

mathieuc (982) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
Pours an unclear golden with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of coriander and overall really spicy/peppery. Some light fruits appear but they are really subdued. Taste is quite dry with flavors of fresh wheat and again some coriander. Finish is spicy and not too long. Body is medium, carbonation on the lower side. Nice one!
