Koelschtrinker (11045) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 5, 2014
Leicht hefiger Antrunk, hell, steigende Bitterkeit, milde Kräuternoten. Trockener, dennoch vollmundiger Mittelteil mit nun stäreren Kräuternoten, die der Bitterkeit entgegentreten. Intensiver Kräuterabgang mit deutlichen hopfigen Komponenten. 10/10/11/11/11/11

Ambro206 (146) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2014
Raggiunge la sufficienza per il servizio dal cask e la complessità degli aroni. Alla frutta acerba si mischia l’erbaceo deciso dato dal dry hopping ma in generale la birra risulta sbilanciata e lontana anni luce dalli stile a cui si dovrebbe ispirare sulla carta fatto di spezie ed armoniosità.

milara (56) - Ste-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Belle bière dorée et légèrement trouble avec une mousse parfaitement blanche et persistente. Au nez, les arômes de campagnes et de gazon cache un côté fruité prometteur. C’est en bouche que les saveurs explosent grâce à la texture pétillante et l’amertume qui remplie la bouche de malt riche. La finale est longue et délicieuse, ce qui attire la prochaine gorgé en dégustation. Facile à boire, excellent bière d’été.

olio (6503) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
75 cl bottle (7% abv) @ Timo A.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Lemon and spices on the nose, grassy hops, faint yeast and wood. Citric fruits, lemon peel, spices, maybe some yeast too. A bit weird, some alcohol comes through at the end.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
750 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, strong pungent herbs and some alcohol. Flavour of strong grains, herbs, mild sweetness and grassy bitterness. Hard carbonation. Harsh.

Humlehode (129) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2014
Pours light golden, slightly cloudy. Very low head and carbonation for a saison. High residual sweetness, low bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

borre_m (346) - NORWAY - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden with white head. Aroma is fruity with apple and banana, some citrus as well. Taste is very nice not as dry as i expected, but its a nice summer beer.

Bulk_Carrier (2250) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a decent hazy orange color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated in about a minute. Once it dissipated, wow, what a nice looking thick foamy spider web lacing to this one. The smell had some light sweet fruit - light cherry to apple to some faint pears. There was a light grassy funk with a nice light spice. The taste took those fruits and added a light spice in a somewhat grassy context of sorts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slight sessionable quality about it. Overall, good saison more than worthy of coming back to.
