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.

nimbleprop (5785) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 28, 2015
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 (149) - 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.

MotherBrother (797) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2015
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.

couleur dorée trouble; mousse blanche assez imposante; arômes de malt et levure; goût malté, légèrement fruité, houblonné et épicé; bon équilibre douceur-amertume

Cor de mel, levemente turva. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma de casca de laranja, florais e lúpulo. Sabor amargo, cítrico, com notas de casca de laranja e folhas verdes. Retrogosto amargo com final cítrico e herbáceo.

MaBeer1972 (1430) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle from Oliver’s in Albany. Poured into a tulip. A hazy light orange brew with a huge frothy head. Thick lacing. Strong yeasty-bread aromas. Flavor is dominated by dry yeasty bitterness with notes of citrus and spice (clove). Very dry finish. Somewhat bland though.

jamaty (1144) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Bonito color dorado amarillento, turbia y con excelente espuma, abundante, cremosa y muy duradera. Aroma frutal, también levadura. Rica y diferente en boca. Abundante carbonatacion, pero no pesada. Textura cremosa. muy frutal, maracuyá claramente predominante. También cítrica. Base dulce. Y final muy seco y amargo, dejando postgusto de maracuyá de nuevo. Notable.

jmm635 (928) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours golden straw colored with a huge white head fill of tiny, tight bubbles. Pineapple, oranges, lemons, and fresh yeast on the nose. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, and spicy. Long finish. Really nice. One of the better saisons in recent memory.

O design é muito interessante, até pela história que trás nos rótulos. A aparência no copo é meio "rústica", mas atrativa. Creme consistente e duradouro, bem aerado. Já o corpo é meio turvo, com um amarelo palha intenso e puro. O aroma traz tons cítricos, mas nada de especial ou diferenciado. Em boca, começa interessante mas termina com uma rispidez incômoda no retrogosto. Carbonatação leve. Pra mim, não vale repeteco.
