From bottle. Nice orange color and the aroma has some farmhouse funk and citrus. Nice carbonation with orange and spice and barnyard and sweet/tart finish that ends dry. Really nice white ale.

cmonster (993) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy pale straw with a medium sized fluffy white head. Good retention and lace. Nose is lemony citrus and Belgian wit yeast. Not overly complex. Flavor is light tart and crisp. Light body, heavy carbonation, thin oily texture and a dry tart finish.

Bottled on January 21st 2014, slightly over a year ago. This one has "Saison" written all over it. Murky light yellow colouring with considerable carbonation. I’m going to ding it, because the gentlest of pours erupts into an overflowing massive white head dominating two thirds of the glass. On the nose it is all pepper and cinnamon. Very spicy. Tastes are more of the same. It has that light but flavourful thing going for it, that the best Saisons have (even if not officially categorized as a Saison). I’d buy this one again, but would drink it on a hot summer day.

VsXsV (2548) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Hazy hay yellow liquid with medium white head. Aroma of lemon peel, light grain, white pepper, light spices and light earth. Taste is dry, light bitter and light sour with notes of lemon peel, light grain and light apples. Light to medium bodied with medium to hugh carbonation. Really nice and dry.

TheGoldenChalice (18) - The Garden of the Beer Gods, North Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Aroma -- apple, pineapple, citrus aroma. Appearance -- light, golden yellow hue w/ significant head-retention. Taste -- tastes like this was brewed w/ apple skins, pineapple, and other citrus. Sessionable and moderately sour. Palate -- semi-sour mouthfeel; overall rather light and underwhelming.

rayaron (417) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle sample at tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Hazy light yellow with small white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, orange, coriander, some spiciness, funky and a bit yeasty. Nice sourness in the flavor, orange, banana, wheat, spicy, black pepper, lavender, dry sweet-sour finish. Medium carbonation, medium-bodied. Very good and refreshing.

Simonsen (750) - NORWAY - JAN 3, 2015
Flaske fra esp0r. Lys gylden farge, klar, moderat karbonert med hvit skumtopp. Smaker sitrus, appelsinskall, koriander og krydder. Rett og slett en fornøyelig wit

tectactoe (2518) - Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle: Hazy golden body with a puffy, cloudy white head. Volatile, long-lasting, modest lacing left behind. I’ve had many batches of this. Some are more tart, others are more funky. But they all have a nice bit of soured wheat on the nose, apple skin, mineral water, stone fruits, & a mild lemon rind accent with a touch of spiced yeast & coriander wafting into the finish. Certainly bottles have a huge corky & musky barnyard floor funk. Love those bottles. Flavor is crisp with lemon, green apple, light acidity, must, & a nice bit of dry wood in the aftertaste. Again, certain bottles have been more funky with a strong moldy cork & even a mild cheese rind presence. Either way, all bottles are quite nice. Crisp mouth feel, a touch watery & soft. Really nice beer.

Franckg (132) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Doux arômes de levures sauvages et d’orange. Très grosse effervescence. La sensation en bouche est intense mais brève. Très sour avec traces de coriandre et d’agrumes. Le vieillissement en barrique de chêne est plutôt absent au gout. Aucune amertume. Très rafraichissante.
