JorisPPattyn (9083) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2016
Towering, yellowish head, leaving textbook lace over finely, well-carbonated orangey golden beer. Very nice citrussy & fruity (New World) hops, dry straw & grains. Slight ureum . Taste is bitter, fruity, just a tad metallic. Citrus/citruspeel; hopoil galore. Faint grain/malt underneath, but fully dominated by the hops. Slgith astrigency, metallic tang; sharpish carbonation, light body. Top quality IPA.

77ships (6974) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ “Vini Birre Ribelli 2015”. Hazy citrus, small white head. Nose is weirdly floral, lemon, sugar, hay & some milky yeast. Taste is fizzy milky yeast, lemon, sugar, candy, mellow floral hops. Milky yeast body. Too yeast, not much hops, not really to the style but okay if taken on its own. Decent but nothing special.

freretoc (1479) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 5, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 75cl couleur bien blonde et grosse mousse, en bouche bière très houblonnée intéressante car il y a une belle attaque sur le malt aussi, très florale elle est aussi un peu résineuse type sirop de sapin, très agréable

erickok (4928) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2013
Hazy yellow oker body and creamy stable white head. Great saison like aroma, citric hops, fresh leaves, fair amount of fresh cheese yeast and pilsner malts. Refreshing and tantalizing. Good amount of bitterness, rich yet refreshing taste. Suits me perfectly. No, excellently. Long dry aftertaste and bitter bite. Farmy yeast does a great job here. A great hopped up saison. Excellent brew. (75cl bottle from Bière Revolution)
