Pours a completely hazed, vibrant darker yellow, with a huge, stable white head. Smells of sour sweet lemon bonbon, Duponts spicy yeast peofile, defined by clove and peppers, and white bread dough. Has a nice flowery undertone, blending perfectly into a cakey sweetness. Drinks super smooth with a world class smoothness to it, soothing the spices coming from the yeast, while a lively carbonation during the finish is still able to cut through. Combines a nice leafy hoppiness with a crisp, lemon accompanied sweetness, balanced by a flowery infusion and the spices. Finishes even sweeter, with rock sugar among more profound spices and an effervescent carbonation, opening up the palate to an aqueous softness. Another winner from this brewery, perfect for warm summer days - while this is certainly well crafted enough to convince on its own as well. Packs a great lemon / flowery interplay, resulting in a pungent, sweet spiciness.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2016
On tap @ La Cerveteca. A blurry looking golden one with a huge really lacing bright white head. Smells really good actually. Superb floral and kinda sweetish. Lots of white candied sugars and blue grapes. Nice. Tastes pretty nice also. It has a good oily feeling in the mouth and it’s just above average on the bubbles. Kinda creamy in a way. More floral tones here. It’s really easy to drink. Slightly sugary without being to sweet. Grapes and grape juice. Yeah, a solid Belgian all the way. 06.08.2014

rumproasts (5054) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2016
bottle. Hazy straw with three finger head. Extremely bland saison. I don’t know if this is just too old at this point, but it’s just some light sweet graininess with a dull bitter finish. Very little yeast flavor, and no discernable funk. I was quite underwhelmed by this one.

jukkar (119) - FINLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle 25cl. Aroma is yeasty, nothing special there. As the beer is non filtered, it is very cloudy. Color is golden. Minimal head. Taste is sweet and lightly sour. Beer is quite fizzy, finish is short, texture is slightly creamy. This is drinkable but not really my favorite because taste was too sweet.
