330ml bottle (Ale House, Riga)
Very pleasant fruity hop aroma. It was many months ago that I had the saison, and I forget exactly what that was like, but from those notes, I guess this is pretty similar. Not saying "lager" as such. Slightly thin palate, but not watery. Sweet caramelly retronasals. Dry old nut-paper bitterness. Some resiny hop bitterness. Quite refreshing. Covers the alcohol well. Plenty in common with an American pale ale.

Bottled 330ml @Beer Hunters (blind tasting of Yeast Series)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Fruity, a bit grainy aroma. Light bodied. Fruity, light resiny bitterness. Light malty notes. Easiest from the yeast series.

VertBaconStrips (2137) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
Tired and I really overate thanks to the freakishly ginormous bowl. Incredibly floral and fruity due to a 30 min warm up. Mango and lemon candy nose. Taste = yummo. Mildly bitter, slightly tangy. I’m going to explode. Too full to finish. In the end I like this less - a lot less.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. Almost clear amber with a lasting off white head. Massive US-hoppy nose. Pine cones, grapefruit, resin, graas, earth. And caramel. Easy to drink, quite bitter, not exactly your average lager. But very good.

Hazy amber beer with a big fluffy pale cream coloured head. Palate is crispy. Mild minerals. Juicy orange hops with touches of grass and skunk. Little grapefruit bitterness. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Decent bitter linger. Nice hoppy beer but did not come over particularly lager like.

Good sharp tang from the hops which sets this aside from a regular lager without hitting IPA heights. Also very smooth, softly carbonated from the yeast. A little sweetness - caramel notes - from the malt.

pentaz (1254) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours crystal clear copper with a fully lasting and good lacing medium white head. Aroma is grassy, crackers, grain, malt, fruit, cheese, toffee and resin. Taste is light+ sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium, texture is creamy, carbonation is soft+. Finishes quite dry with a lingering bitterness. Seems to have more pronounced flavors than English and American and is less smooth.
