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.

In a bottle at Thristy & Miserable. A lovely saison that drinks lighter than its stated abv. Very refreshing and quaffable, which makes that abv all the more deadly. Very similar in aroma and flavour to a traditional Belgian saison, with perhaps a bit more grass in the nose and more citrus in the taste.

Tognetta (334) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 30, 2015
Amarelo palha, levemente turva, espuma branca de fácil formação, abundante, média persistência. Aroma ácido, cítrico, especiarias. Corpo leve, carbonatação média. Aftertaste de amargor persistente, misturado com a acidez do estilo. Esperava um pouco mais, mas vale a pena.

375 ml bottle. Hazy yellow with a very bubbly white head. Aroma is lemon, bananas, and very ripe tropical fruit. Simple malts and a fair degree of bitterness, a little boozy, heavily carbonated. Lemon, mango, banana.

sulawang (723) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2015
Visual: (Their own bottle for their brewery, raised lettering and devil on the bottom, odd size 600ml). Heftier than average bottle cap. Pours marmalade orange with a huge lasting super-duper foamy head, thick sticky lacing, clusters upon more clusters of fast activity. Nose: fruity passionfruit-mango with some yeasty funk in the background. (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: sharp-crisp-fizzy Mid-palate: bubbly-fullness, (lvl-3)-sweetness, (MAIN) malty, yeasty funk, banana wheat malts, lemon, coriander. Finish: passion fruit exhale, coriander dryness, subtle soft hopped. Summary: Fantastic body and mouthfeel. A good sipping refreshing summer beer, although somewhat bloating due to the huge carbonation.

50cl bottle pours a very hazy gold with a ring of white head. Nose has herbs, straw, pepper, mild soap, dried citrus peel. Flavor is very spritzy with plenty of pepper notes, citrus pith, stale bread. Full bodied, spritzy finish.

Hoprider (160) - DENMARK - JUN 21, 2015
Pours hazy yellow with a frothy white head. The nose is funny... A little salty? Light malty sweetness, hay and something fishy? pineapple? This is all over the place. Maybe its just me... Mouthfeel is light to medium with an average carbonation. The taste is very mineral. Very crisp and clean, light saison with a yeasty and mildly tannic aftertaste.

Pour murky yellow, with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, slight cheese, yeast, grass. Pretty refreshing. Taste is slightly bitter, with faint sweet notes. Medium body, with a lively and fizzy carbonation.
