Soupoftoday (44) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2015
Hard to properly enjoy, and pour, due to over-carbonation. Prickly and overly gassy mouthfeel overpowers the the apparent ’elegant’ and ’delicate’ flavours others are talking about. Although there is a nice, citrusy, slightly funky saison lying somewhere beneath the bubbles, this is a very hard to ignore flaw. I think the marketing of La Sirene as different to typical breweries, with their backgrounds in winemaking and ’science’, and their ’classy’ bottles and labels cloud peoples judgment and leads them to be more generous in their reviews of the beers. They make reasonably good saisons but are overrated and not as accomplished as they are often presented. 10 out of 10 for marketing though.

Definitely not my favourite Saison, I would go back for a second round that's for sure. It was sour, but with a lesser sense of... Quality, I'm sure for some this is a real hit, but for me... No, sorry.

Pours well. Tight white head, golden, well carbonated. Smells clean. Tastes of horse blanket. Dry mouthfeel with some residual funk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muggus69 (1491) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2015
375mL bottle from Slowbeer. Enjoy before Nov 2016 Odd noise on opening - like the releasing of demons or something. Anyhow, she’s a lively one - pours out a big billowy white foam atop a bright hazy orange-straw body - much the same as their regular Saison. The two beers take different roots once you get a whiff - funky fruit aroma, those tropical notes you often get with certain strains of Brett - pineapple, papaya & paw paw with grapefruit rind, an underlying hay-like cereal maltiness in there too. Dry and well attentuated without being chalky or abrasive, or watery. Moderate carbonation, quite fine. There’s something really elegant about the body of this one - whilst their regular Saison is quite in your face (as much as a Saison can be, and in a good way), this is restrained, somewhat delicate yet no loss complex or delicious - citrus rind (almost kaffir lime-like), subtle paw paw & guava notes, faintly leafy, touch of old cheese, nice lightly toasted cereal malt note, hay, bitterness with an earthy note lingering, a bit of citric acid there too. Intriguing, funky yet restrained, highly enjoyable overall.

wvhoran (393) - Tasmania, - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a huge off-white head. The aroma has citrus and stonefruit (apricot) with yeast. The palate is light and lively with strong lemon and yeast upfront, and mild pepper and earthiness. Very nice.

mkel07 (4243) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle from Wine Emporium 290115. Super big head of thick foam that looks like some one dumped a scoop of ice cream in the beer. Golden in colour with a big whiff of sweet fruit in the nose. Thick and creamy in the mouth.

Shark_Pants (424) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours a clear gold colour with loys of sediment and a big aerated but persistent white head. Can definitely smell the wild yeast in the aroma - expected funk, apple cider vinegar astringency, light lemon and toast. As others have said, a very delicate taste with all of the above aromas also present in the taste. The light astringency actually complements the dry finish nicely and makes this a very refreshing drop.

KeefOz (1112) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2014
BB Nov/2016. Poured a clouded golden amber colour with a three- to four-finger white foamy head that retained OK and laced as spots. Carbonation medium and fine. Lots of floaters as expected. Aroma subtle but dominated by yeast, earthiness, hint of cloves, and hints of citrus. Taste of lemon/citrus and spices/cloves. Light to medium body. Smooth, citric acid and a slight sourness on the finish. Nice.

Niksko (454) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2014
Pours a darkish clear golden with abundant foamy white head. Nose is a little clove, some banana, a decent bit of potpourri or rose. Delicate but interesting nose. Flavor is more of the nose. A great balance of spice, some banana/bubblegum esters, rosehip, a little barnyardy funk, and some light, lemony acidity. I also get a tiny hint of dill. Very high, prickly carbonation. Delicate in flavor, but really lovely.

dough, and a fruit basket that’s not gone bad, but has those little flies around it sort-of-aroma. Quite highly carbonated, with a dry finish. quite sweet with an earthiness behind it.
