Libertine uses a unique and distinctive French Ale yeast that contributes mightily to the overall profile of the brew. Strong earthy, country aromas dominate with a light acidity on the palate followed by the driest of cracking dry finishes.High malted and unmalted wheat content, hazy, pale straw colour. Different, distinctive, unfiltered. Natural.

on tap at the brewpub in port stephens. pale golden with a minimal head; spritzy; aroma of menthol and hay; decent yeast bite - dulled somewhat by being served very cold - understandable in australia around xmas time

Stew41 (1941) - Phuket, THAILAND - DEC 3, 2013
Tap @ Frankie’s Pizza. Golden Ale with balls. A tail of 2 halves; starts all pedestrian-like but soon kicks with cinnamon and spice. Tangy, good presence and length. Dark fruits to finish.

M_Sack (623) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2013
On tap at Murray's Brewery Port Stephens. Hazy straw colour with a small white head. Aromas of banana and yeast, but underwhelming. Plenty of citrus flavours as well as banana, melon and malt. Well carbonated in line with a saison and a very dry finish.

hawthorne00 (3539) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2013
Growler. Hazy gold. Spicy with oranges and tangy wheat. Coriander, vanilla, white pepper. Is this the same as The Natural? If so, not as carbonated as in the bottle, unfortunately. But nice and right up my street.

Pyobon (1314) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2013
(On Tap) Hazy yellow with small white head. Interesting and pleasant aroma with spicy earthy leathery notes with sour and maybe banana ester notes. Medium body with nice carbonation. Flavour is refreshing mellow citrus with banana hints and spicy notes developing for a dry finish. Overall, unusual, pleasant and refreshing.

Not a bad saison, it has some great flavours and balance. However, it just lacks that little extra that leads to a great saison. Nevertheless, one of the better saisons in Aus.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 On tap at murrays manly, this beer is very pale in colour. Melon fruit flavour, a Little sour. It’s refreshing without being amazing.

mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2012
On tap at The Scratch. Pale amber colour with a clean snow white head. Peach and melon in the flavour which is nice and refreshing. There is fruit in the aroma also. A good thirst quenching beer.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 19, 2012
On tap at the Norfolk Hotel. Fairly clear golden body with minimal but lasting head. Notice wheat in the taste then yeast and citrus in the aroma probably could drink plenty of these in summer.
