COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Le safran gaumais est produit dans la région de Virton (B) et la mise au point de cette bière est une belle collaboration avec le producteur. Jouer avec le safran c’est comme jouer avec le feu, enfant on risque des catastrophes, adulte, on a dompté Vulcain. Trop de safran tue le goût de la bière, et vice-versa. Suis-je un brasseur adulte ? A vous de juger !

Hansen (6569) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2012
Beer with the spice safran is not a match. Nice appearance though, yellow with a white, lasting head. Odd aroma and flavor, astringent and like earwax. Lively carbonation.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2012
(Bottled) Opaque orange with a medium, firm and lacy head. Very strong stingy-sweaty-metallic, chlorine-flowery, grassy nose (i.e. nothing but saffron). Flavor is also strongly dominated by the same elements, with some stingy alcohol hints and huge grassy-saffrony bitterness. Also a bit meaty. Medium body, foamy CO2, slightly astringent. You need to be a real hardcore saffron fan (or a hophead) to enjoy this. 3735

onystrom (1318) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2012
Hazy golden color with fine head. Bitter medical flavor the saffron gives a somewhat smoked taste and aroma.

SaintMatty (5189) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2012
330ml Bottle - Golden with a small head. Saffron, lemon, hops and yeast in the aroma. Rather interesting taste with saffron standing out along with notes of honey, yeast and hops.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Malting Pot, Brussels
Hazy light amber color with generous head. Very nice aroma of saffron, powerful. Good ale, with mild saffron flavor, solid Belgian brew with the required moderate sweetness for this spice.
The saffron is more evident in the aroma, and overall this is a good beer.

omhper (19321) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2012
Bottled, thanks fiulijn! Hazy amber, mid sized head. Big time saffron aroma. Sweet and fruity with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Saffron lingers in the finish.

MrW (407) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2012
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Bottle @ ZBF ’12 Re-Rate @ZBF 2013 Evident saffron aroma, like rice pudding. Gold colour with light yellow lasting head. Not lacing, no sparkling. Tastes like it smells, rice pudding, sweet, some non-harassing bitterness, something burned like the top of a creme-brulée. I like it but it is kinda monotone. The saffron lasts in the aftertaste.

Definitely a saffron aroma. The bitterness of the hops masques some of the saffron flavour.
