ChtiBreizh (99) - Rennes, FRANCE - MAY 30, 2015
Very hazy yellow with thick dense head. Malty, citrusy, coriander, little tart, funk, caramel, yeast. Reminder of the saison spontaneous fermentation notes but at weaker, and overall more on the abbey blond side. AVerage carbonation. Average sweetness and bitterness.

willisread (631) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 29, 2015
250 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a stemmed tulip half-pint glass. Pours a deep gold almost light amber color with a modest white head that mostly dissipates but leaves a small thin coating on the beer. Aromas of wheat, yeast, pepper, arugula, nutmeg all present with some light barnyard. Taste is more of the same. Sweet on the palate with apricot and plum coming out as it warms up. The yeast flavor hangs around through giving it a bit of funkiness, but not so much. Must be a saison style yeast. Peppery, drying finish. Not as good as the Saison Dupont Biologique but still nice.

nihtila (1484) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
19.6.2014. Very pale and hazy, thick white head. Nice Belgian aroma with yeast, wheat, spices, esp pepper. Taste doesnt fulfill aromas expectations completely. There are similar peppery spices, some yeast, but some stuffiness.

sonotono (90) - torino, ITALY - FEB 28, 2015
Colore oro carico, leggermente torbida. Odore dolciastro fruttato. Corposa, gustoda, dolciastra, finale secco, una punta di aspro. Una via di mezzo tra una belgian strong ale e una tripel.
