weihenweizen (2264) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy pale golden with small fluffy head which dissapates quickly. Little big bubble lacing, light body, medium/low carbonation, and really nice floral aroma. Taste is long dry crisp hops. I would call this a saison and I expected more.

bartlebier (2667) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 29, 2013
75cl bottle opened as revanche for their last-minute cancellation @ZBF 2013 - Elegant and somewhat mysterious looking dark label that not nearly betrays a summer ale this refreshing. Pours a milky and bit watery straw yellow with short head. Fresh citrus nose with undefineable exotic and wit yeast undertones. Very light palate, tastes cleaner than other wits due to spices/oranges replaced by (mildly dosed) US hops (Yakima Chief Simcoe, anyone?). Imagine a Blanche de Namur as an entry level saison, thirst quenching and with unnoticeable 6 abv. -

mcberko (9633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
On tap at Apex, pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat upfront, light citrus and some rustic qualities. Flavour is full of wheat and rustic qualities, and light Belgian yeast. Very light and restrained on the palate and thirst-quenching. Great stuff.

Not so special as I expected. I thought this was going to be better because of the status but was quite incipit and with few aroma.

Bottled, thanks Bov! Hazy pale orange, very little carbonation and minimal head. Tangerine aroma with some marzipan. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Custard and tangeri9e, hay and spicy, some yeasty marzipan. Juicy with mid bit bitter finish.

Huhzubendah (3059) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is light yellow and fairly hazy with a small white head. The aroma is hop forward with floral and herbal notes. Good flavor, with a blend of hop, herbal, and floral notes. Light bodied with low carbonation. The beer could use a bit more carbonation to enhance the feel and support the overall flavor. Overall, this was drinkable and enjoyable. Easy to get through a snifter of this. Could use some minor improvements and tweaks. Pretty good. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-02-2012

Nickls (2001) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Tap. Foamy white head on a hazy light yellow orange. Grassy, oranges, sour wheatiness in the aroma. Flavor is tart citrus, some herbal and citrusy hops, grassy, and tangy. Softer body with zippy carbonation. Solid

Ernest (6748) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle (BB Mar 30, 2016). Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of lemon zest, pepper, gum, apple/pear. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation. A very nice quaffer, very saison-like...quite dry in the finish but nicely balanced at the front. Aroma is bright, floral, lemony...very enjoyable and keeps you coming back for more sips. Very clean. Not quite a 4+ blockbuster, but maybe it is in fresher form?
