Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. On the apperance we have a cloudy golden straw color. The head produced was lively carbonation of thin white bubbly foam which died out allmost instantly. The carbonation is soft otherwise. The aroma opens up with some floral hops, yellow bell pepper, wet hay and distinctly funky doughy yeast, maybe a slight lemon note on the tailend. On the taste I get spicy hops, slight lemon tang, doughy/barnyard yeast all balanced with the hay maltiness.

Fruity little bitter but not hoppy. Perfect for summer. Goes well with Chinese food.

EithCubes (5614) - New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle. Nose heavy lemon/orange peel and heavy black pepper, spices like mace and tea, some vanilla/meringue, wheat and marmalade. Pours very hazy, very pale yellow that’s got a lot of white mixed in, supports a large and rocky bright white head, thick lace. Taste dry and heavily wheaten, very spicy and lightly tart, some flits of lemon and seemingly coriander, lightly herbal. Soft full body but not at all heavy, refreshing with a grainy aftertaste, key thing is that super (raw) wheat character, if a little murky. [2016.04.10: 3.4]

The hoppy aroma to this beer is very pleasant. The mixture of sweetness and bitterness is nice paired with the citrus.

TAR (2671) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Burnished golden. White head subsides quickly. Very dirty nose of DMS, white vinegar, gummy candy, apple juice, husky malt, unripe banana, chemicals. Flimsy mouthfeel. DMS and husky, grating malt assaults the palate immediately. Intensely vegetal with rampant cabbage notes coupled with plastic baggie, bile and gummy candy. Apple juice plagues the wet and limp finish, which reveals hints of herbal, peppery hops and an abundance of sulfur. I didn’t need more than one sniff and a tiny, gag-inducing mouthful to confirm the lackluster quality of this. Heartbreakingly, this bills itself as a saison, because in reality, it comes off as more of an industrial lager fermented with a cheap saison strain than anything else. Reprehensible and undrinkable.

On tap at Jopen Proeflokaal, Amsterdam. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma of citrus, tart light fruits, sorbet, really fresh. Flavour is moderate sour and a touch salty. Above light bodied with light carbonation.

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours hazy gold orange, sudsy white head, effervescent bubbles. Aroma of banana, clove, white pepper, green apple. Taste of same with a little cardboard in finish. Might be an old bottle.

Mediocre appearance.. Faint hay, spice aroma. Solid saison taste and palate. Pretty good.
