COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic farmhouse ale is brewed in small batches on a traditional farm brewery as it has historically been made for hundreds of years. This unfiltered bottle of seizoen, with its beeswax seal, is naturally refermented and carbonated with select yeast strains, producing complex fruity and spicy flavors balanced with hops and a soft malt character.

Smells of apples and tastes like Brie. A little if a bitter finish and a beautiful color make this farmhouse a pleasant experience all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille partagée par mon ami Patrick. Bière jaune avec de minuscules fines bulles et une mousse durable. Un nez vinaigré de pot de cornichons à l’aneth (pickle-merci Pat) et de levure sauvages. C’est frais. La bouche est bien digeste. Les saveurs citronnées sont agréables. Elle pique un peu la langue. Des saveurs belges dans la plus grande tradition.

Une belle crinière blanche qui chevauche une tunique jaune foncée et embrouillée. Un nez qui m’intrigue. Il y a dans mon verre des herbes poivrées. Je sens du blé tendre et d’autres grains rustiques. Des fleurs blanches et des bananes vertes explosent momentanément. Sur les papilles, un goût floral s’installe avec divers aromates et d’autres épices. Des saveurs citronnées et des pommes acidulées ont de très bons réflexes de spontanéité. Je sens se poindre la douce tiédeur d’un alcool houblonné. Sur mon palais, le liquide s’exprime bien. Son corps crémeux est animé par des bulles qui ne sont jamais fatiguées. La finale se veut intéressante avec ses notes de fruits piquants et de cave humide.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 12/2015. Pours lightly hazy bright golden amber color with a 3 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, peach, pear, apple, pineapple, grape, pepper, clove, honey, bread, hay, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast notes with malt sweetness; and good strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, peach, pineapple, apple, grape, pepper, clove, honey, bread, hay, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, peach, pineapple, light fruits, pepper, clove, honey, bread, hay, grass, herbal, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of fruity/spicy yeast flavors with moderately balanced malt sweetness; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic saison style. All around awesome balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

Pours slightly hazy blond with a finger white head. Smell fresh cut grass and honey. Taste grassy, earthy hoppy. Refreshingly smooth and clean. Good beer.

Marheb (1970) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
Visuellement spectaculaire avec sa chaîne montagneuse de mousse crémeuse et sa robe d’or 24 karat. Au nez c’est les notes de blé et de levure citronné qui mènent délicatement l’assaut. Le corps est rond et est aidé par une effervescence brillamment effacée. Les saveurs sont simples mais saupoudrés avec justesse d’une paisible acidité. Un bière qui fait vraiment du sens.

jgb9348 (4664) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Super hazy copper and orange coloured body with a ridiculously large and soapy, five centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, malt, bread, hay, grass, coriander seed, pepper, curacao - you name it, it’s in here, and it smells great! Medium-bodied; Assertive spicey yeast flavour with a lot of hay, grass, hops, funk, dough, herbs, sage and honey flavours throughout, all showing a strong complexity and a touch of sweetness at the end. Aftertaste shows a very well-rounded character with the spice and yeast especially making the strongest flavours, but all with a pleasant sweetness and an overt grassiness throguhout. Overall, a very nice beer for the style - nothing left to the imagination here - the yeast is complex, but the flavour profile is in your face from the first smell of the beer. Definitely worth sampling if you can find it, and easily worth the space and effort to bring home even the big bottle in your suitcase! I sampled this wax-topped 75 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland, Oregon (PDX Airport, Terminal D) for US$10.95 on 28-April-2013, sampled at home in Washington on the opposite end of the country on 22-September-2013.

Pours murky light orange with a huge fluffy head that sticks around leaving thick lacing. Aroma is light sweet malt with a little yeastiness. Flavor is light, sweet malt with a little pepper in the finish. Not bad

Bottle: A tart, vinous aroma permeates the air upon popping the top. A slow gusher, but barely any escaped. The pour is a flat tangerine color with a big fizzy beige head. Good retention, patience is a virtue. The nose is still a little vinous, but the yeast and farmyard funk comes through now that it’s in my glass. The taste comes together in a prickly way; lots of carbonation with florals, yeast, spices, and fruit. A little wheat and wood, finished a bit heavy. Good farmhouse feel overall.

750 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! Pours a cloudy gold color with a medium white head. Looks the part. Aroma of bready and pale malts, straw, corn flakes, and a traditional farmhouse funk character throughout. The spiciness is fairly muted. Same for the flavor, which has the same slate of pale and bready malts, apricot, peach, and wood. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, funky mouthfeel. Good saison.
