Pours a cloudy yellow with a small, thin head; no lacing. Clean on the nose, a little grass. Bitter grassiness on the tongue that lingers. Nice example of the style. 2011 vintage with a Foret label.

ogivlado (6359) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 2, 2015
Bottled 250ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Cloudy yellow/orange coloured, medium sized white head, weak yeasty nose. Moderate malty, yeasty, slight grainy and fruity with notes of spices and hops near the end. Drinkable but to be honest pretty boring BSA.

joeneugs (4220) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 2, 2015
2014 bottle from Safeway. The corks pops with a rush of skunk from the bottle. Thankfully, it gasses off pretty quick. The pours is very pretty with a hazy medium orange color with a massive, pillowy white head. The aroma has just a hint of skunk, but nice notes of fresh air, clementines, dusty yeast, pepper and some flowery/herbal hops. The flavor is pretty powerful with juicy oranges, pepper, mild phenols, toasted grains, hints of honey and herbs in the finish. There’s a slight alcohol hint to go along with the stronger fruit and honey notes. Highly attenuated. Frothy mouthfeel. A very fun and satisfying beer, but I prefer the lower gravity beers from Dupont.

Habanero (3272) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with a large white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, funky notes, some spice traces and a little citrus. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft to average carbonation. A nice ale indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Brewhemia (72) - 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.

vipinvelp (2838) - 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)

Rubin77 (140) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 5, 2015
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.
