COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde opalescente coiffée d’une généreuse couronne de mousse. On trépigne en humant ses arômes complexes d’agrumes et de fruits de la passion qui dévoilent les prémisses d’une satisfaction future. La bouche offre les mêmes fruits, parallèlement au goût d’épices produits par une levure saison authentique. Il en résulte une bière désaltérante, combinant avec un charme certain le flair du Nouveau Monde et la rusticité du vieux continent.

Cloudy dark orange 3 finger off white head. Aroma is spicy with pepper, clove and ginger. Very substantial mouthfeel in carbonation and tingling. Intense bitterness toward middle and finish with pine and a faint bitter orange. A taste of honey and more herbs. Sweet as well in lingering taste.

anstei (117) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2015
600ml bottle. Pours cloudy yellow. Crisp mouth feel, refreshing as a saison should be, but it lacks a distinct taste or aroma. Disappointing.

hawthorne00 (2629) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle. Just hazy gold with a large white head that lasts well. Aroma of peach, lemon, hay, slightly funky dough, cloves. Sweet peach, some tropical fruit, crackers, lemons, dry and spicy (pepper and cloves) at the end. A little zippy there too. Nice, maybe a little austere.

Pour is a cloudy blonde with a huge white head. Aroma is soft malt with a nice fruitiness and something like a sweet vanilla. Flavor is lemon juice to start then some doughy malt and finishes with some white pepper heat. This was a very refreshing and well done saison. Pretty much everything you are looking for in a saison makes an appearance here.

JStax (3346) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2015
600 ml bottle thanks to lukaduke! Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy light copper with a big white head of foam. Good retention. It actually took quite awhile to pour the beer. The aroma has dry white wine notes, some green tea herbal aspects, a touch fruity. The taste is sweet and dry initially. Grassy, mild bitterness, perfumy, effervescent. High carbonation. Medium body. Pretty refreshing.

Fashawn (252) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JAN 24, 2015
Aroma: Pere e mele al naso insieme alla scorza d’arancia. Naso praticamente Funky, con un bel po’ di spezie, qualche fiore bianco e sul finale anche erba appena tagliata ed un po’di terra. Aspetto: Caratteristico colore arancio oRo antico tendente all’arancio, con una densa, spessa schiuma. La trasparenza è buona, la birra è limpida senza particelle che possano infestarla. Sapore: In bocca molto dolce con la spremuta di frutta, ravvivate dalle spezie. Pera dolce e scorza darancia, su un filone zesty e fanky che corre sulla base, che è perfetta con grano fresco e crackers. Sul finale note citriche ed aspre, ed il luppolo che è, erge con un amaro non fortissimo mo avvertiti le, portando al naso terra fresca e bagnata ed in bocca erba e pochissima resina. Sensazione al palato: Corpo da leggero a medio. Carbonatazione molto alta con una birra quasi croccante. tessitura lieve, alcol molto ben nascosto. Impressioni generali: Birra fruttata, rinfrescante e decisamente croccante. Buonissima, ne avrei bevuto ben più di 60 cl, forse sessanta litri sarebbero stati giusti.

TET (1865) - FINLAND - JAN 18, 2015
A cloudy, lemon yellow colour, a head is very big and blond. The aroma is nice and fruitful, slightly tropical, some papaiyas, lemon, fruits from yeast, low spicyness and sourness. Taste has fruits, lots of citrusfruits, hint of papaiyas, some spices and sourness. More spices in the end. Medium bodied, strong and smooth carbonation. A great beer, positive surprise. Citrusfruity and slightly tropical saison, very tasteful.
