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 męmes fruits, parallčlement au goűt d’épices produits par une levure saison authentique. Il en résulte une bičre désaltérante, combinant avec un charme certain le flair du Nouveau Monde et la rusticité du vieux continent.

Swaroga (1616) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Butelka 60cl. OCZY : piwo jest zamglone o kolorze zółtym. Piana jest wielka i pomimo sporych pęcherzyków jest całkiem trwała. NOS : piwo ma średnio bogate zapachy. Głownie wyczuwam świeże cytrusy, chleb, miód akacjowy i inne kwiaty. Nawet po mocnym wstrząśnięciu nie potrafię wydobyć mocniejszych estrów czy alkoholu. USTA : szalenie nagazowane i pieniące się w buzi i gardle. Piwo ma kremowa konsystencje podobna do chudego mleka. Jest to piwo wytrawne o dominujących nutach cytryny i kwiatów. Trochę mydlane ale nuty drożdżowe są stonowane co jest zaskakujące w tym stylu. Nuty drożdżowe to pikantny pieprz biały i neutralny twaróg. Średnio gorzkie ale nie ma słodyczy w kontrze więc piwo ogólnie jest wytrawne i gorzkie. Posmak jest mało intensywny. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest świetnie zrównoważone. Łatwo się pije i jest wzorowym przykładem orzeźwiającego piwa. przykładem do którego eurolager nigdy nie dorówna. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 9/10 styl : +2

Sublirony (23) - SINGAPORE - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle from LCBO, downtown Toronto, brought in suitcase to Singapore. Initial pour produce huge head that recedes quite quickly, leaving lovely lacing. Very well-balanced on the palate: full though not ponderous. Nice bitter finish. A beer that gives the great Belgians a run for their money

Temptation (248) - - SEP 15, 2014
Great saison, combining rusticity and elegance. The aroma is almost perfect, as you can expect of a classic saison. Earthy, floral, orangish and spicy notes -very spicy- round a overwhelming overall. Exceptional stuff

Fritz123 (1227) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle at the Syb Pig in Boca. Snifter. Pours a hay color with a pillowy head that lasted and laced some. The aroma is floral, some citrus, barnyard, wet dog, and perfume. The taste is similar with flowers, barnyard, slight cheese, funk, light color fruits, and hay. The finish is somewhat funky and floral. High carbonation, crisp. Great saison.

bartlebier (2360) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2014
Big bottle pour@5e Mondial de la Bičre, Mulhouse. Thin fluffy hay-yellow beer. Aroma somewhere between perfumed wit yeast and bitter lemon infused civilised brett, aka New World saison. Thin bitter lemons meet and outplay well-behaving brett from the urbanised fermette courtyard. Pleasant, breezy summer sessioner.

sudomorph (787) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy, pale yellow with a three finger, fluffy, white head. Aroma has nice notes of citrus, spice, a hint of bubble gum, and some farmhouse funk. Not overly sweet. Taste is balanced. Citrus, spice, farmhouse, a touch of yeast, and a bit of floral at the end. Medium body with a high carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a effervescent carbonation. Overall a pretty tasty saison. Great mouth feel with solid flavours of citrus, spice, and farmhouse.

bhensonb (11908) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Capped 750 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dishwater gold with a huge foamy white head. Thru all the foam the aroma is fruit and earth. Med body or better. Flavor is fruit, spice, earth. All somewhat mild individually, but rather flavorful together. Finishes well towards dry and earthy/spicy/fruity. Just excellent.

This is a nice almost sessionable Saison - yeasty and dry and a little fruit on the palate. Nice.
