Elegant and delicate taste. Wonderful bubble, silky mouthfeel. Sexy looking package this beer is.

Brewhemia (67) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2015
Beautiful hazy yellow color with a little white head. Banana and bubblegum in the aroma. Nice aroma but maybe a little too bubblegummy to my taste. Compared to the aroma the taste is very bitter and sour. Not much sweeetness. The taste doesnt have the complexity to the taste that I usually prefer in a beer. Not one I would necassarily need to have again, but I have to admit it wins a bit in on me once I got adjusted to the taste. Did not realize I had a saison on my hand.

furthur (426) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Tap, cloudy light amber, some creamy white head fades, nice lace. Aroma green apple, grass, kombucha. Taste is pale malt, light fruit, faint clove, slightly utter hops finish. Palate is very rich for a saison, carbonation subdued.

freretoc (1129) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 9, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 25cl chez Virginie, couleur blonde, mousse présente et effervescence moyenne. En bouche attaque sur le pain et la Levure dupont continuité sur le malt et le côté citronné, bel équilibre.

vipinvelp (2829) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2015
Slight opaque yellow, small lacing foam ring. Resin aroma, but great taste, perfect bitter. Short lasting aftertaste. Nice surprise. (Luik 201507)

F: huge nice snow white long lasting foam. C: yellow orange hazy. A: malt, citrus, floral, hint of grass. T: a little sweet and floral hops, some earthy yeast, tropical fruit, grass, spices, very lively carbonation, medium body and at the end watery but anyway very refreshing good beer.

EvanFriend (417) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Think this bottle has been overexposed to light, because it tastes skunked. I taste some straw and floral notes under the skunk, this is probably a very good beer, but I need to try a better bottle.

lobs_ols (391) - LATVIA - JUL 2, 2015
Light gold, strong white head. Hay, bit of sourness and some spices on the nose. Medium body, balanced with hints of pepper. Finishes dry, a bit bitter and very nice indeed.

Drunk from 25cl bottle bought at Malting Pot in Brussels. Cloudy hoppy ale. A classic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamaty (1237) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
2 dedos de espuma efervescente. Dorada turbia. Aroma agradable, que recuerda a triple, citrica y algo láctea. Alta carbonatacion en boca. Muy alta. Cuerpo moderado y sabor que prolonga el aroma en lo frutal, añadiendo algo de dulzor y un toque de especias que la asemeja algo con las weizen alemanas (a la Malta añade en su receta jarabe de trigo). Final amargo. Notable.

Old rating. I remember this being both sweet and herbal. Lots of yeast, some fruitiness and floral hops. Slightly grainy. Dry finish.
