Sampled 10/26/2009. This saison pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, orange and orange peel. Bright and yeasty. A medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, nice citrusy and flavor flavors. Crisp, clean and light, yet has a nice full mouthfeel. Nice dry finish. This beer went very well with the Thanksgiving meal. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

75 cL bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Pours hazy orange with a huge white head, slowly collapsing. Aroma is distinct citrus and floral hoppy with a light yeasty note. Smooth - almost velvet like mouthfeel and hops fruity flavours mixed with mellow yeasty notes. Smooth fruity and bitter flavoured finish yet with a light sweet impression into the far finish.

Bouteille de 750 ml, lors du Bières et Bouffe IV. Arômes de levure citronnée et de céréales. Robe blonde très pâle et trouble, effervescence active. Très citronnée et veloutée en bouche, on retrouve également une touche de houblon herbal. Finale très sèche, légèrement acide et moyennement amère. Une excellente saison, tout à fait dans le style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2009 Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Cloudy golden, small head. Rich hoppy grapefruit aroma. Dry and fairly light bodied. Minerally with slight almondy yeast character. Freshly hoppy with grapefruit and seville orange marmlade. Finishes with medium bitterness. Belgian style yeast and attentuation and Amercan style hops is a winning concept! This is good, and very drinkable.

On tap at 3rd Brugs BF. Hazy yellow colour, dense white head. Aroma of funk, a bit of dung in there, passionfruit, light flowery. Flavour is dry and fruity, grapefruit and passionfruit, hay, zesty, yeast, good dryness all around ending in a nice bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied. Beer of the festival for me, excellent stuff.
