willisread (610) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden color with a modest off-white soapy head. Aromas of orange, lemon, yeast, grain, bread and honey are present. Medium body with active carbonation. A strong saison in my book. The yeast and spices really stand out as it warms up. Nicely bitter but not overly so with a nice touch of nutmeg and cinnamon along with a peppery finish. A very complex strong ale, that is a must drink for saison fans. World class beer for sure.

On tap at PoechenelleKelder, Brussels, march 14th 2015. Hazy dark yellow body with a thick white head. Tart and fruity aroma, tea leaves, citrus. Mild banana in taste, with strong fruitiness, zesty, with a light spicy yeast presence. Medium sweet finish, a good hoppy complex belgian

aleigator (395) - GERMANY - APR 27, 2015
Pours a clear, sun-yellow color, with a huge, stable head. Drinks very smooth, due to a well pronounced yeast foundation, with a perfect fitting carbonation, revealing a medium body. The nose exhibits qualities of an european lager, with sweeter, biscuity malts and slightly herbal hops, but amped up with a spicy yeast foundation. Grass provides a lot of character, giving the aromas an interesting turn. Tastes of dough, soft and spiced yeast, among biscuity malts. Has a lemon peel crispness giving the beer a pleasant freshness. Finishes with a decent dryness, wrapped up by clove, pepper, flowery hops and a luscious yeast foundation. A classic example of a refreshing, complex traditional Belgian beer. The yeast spiciness is well integrated, without becoming the dominant ingedient of the beer. Grass, lemon peel and biscuity malts among a slightly metallic carbonation adds an enjoyable depth.

StoutHead (840) - DENMARK - APR 25, 2015
On tap. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. Grassy aroma. Taste is of malt, hops, grass, citrussy fruits, yeast, spices and sugar. Average body and carbonation. Slightly bitter and tart finish. Not bad but didn't live up to my expectations. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sonotono (86) - torino, ITALY - APR 25, 2015
Colore biondo, schiuma molto abbondante. Odore fruttato, zucchero caramellato, speziato. Sapore dolce di malto, zucchero caramellato, finale amaro erbaceo che bilancia abbastanza bene le note dolci, che rimangono però predominanti. Alcool ben nascosto, si beve facilmente nonostante la gradazione.

mathieuc (1951) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium white head that leaves super nice lacing. Nose is of sweet cereals, pepper, bubblegum and other spices. Taste is moderately sweet and carries flavors of flour, floral alcohol, fruits and pepper. Body is medium and carbonation soft. Alcohol is showing a bit too much for my taste but it is still really nice. A superior belgian strong ale for sure!
