Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a nice yellow colour with a tiny white cap. Nose has Belgium yeast, bananas, citrus hops and zest. Lemon comes through in the taste. Earthy spices also become evident. Nice carbonation. Not a bad effort

Une bouteille de 50 cl. Batch 755. Embouteillée le 25.01.12 et meilleure avant le 25.01.17. Un liquide jaune pâle et bien voilé. Une tête blanche plutôt sale et complètement indestructible. Une dentelle largement diffusée sur la paroi du verre. Un nez percutant de fleurs épicées, de fruit de la passion et de pêches. Je n’ai pas pensé à la levure tellement les houblons ont été percutants pour mes narines. Des saveurs assez intenses de houblons floraux, de chanvre et de fruits encore très jeunes. Une base de pils et de malts pâles qui participent sans doute à ce chavirement aromatique et amérisant. Une levure qui chuchote quelque chose d’épicé ou est-ce l’apanage de houblons poivrés? En bouche, un liquide qui présente un corps sculpté par des bulles vivifiantes. Une texture légère qui n’est jamais aqueuse. Une finale amère, sèche et habitée par des cultivars affutés, mordants et poivrés.

Golden straw-like pour, great fluffy head ensues. Lasts for a long time. Aroma of belgian-yeasty-fruityness and citrusy hops, blending in fabulous fashion. Taste is definitely saison-ish with loads of clove and fruity-esters. Bitterness is medium-high, but blends rather well and is not very dominating in any way. Semi-dry and bitter finish. Light to medium body.

A saison with hops influences. Crystalclear apperance(saison is meant to be cloudy). Hop aroma with saison influences. Nice foam that disappears after 10 minutes. This beer is something for ipa-lovers who wanna get into belgian beers.

Late December, 2012. On tap at Against the Grain in Rock Island. Lightly hazed golden pour with a small soapy off-white head. Light floral aroma with sweet caramel and Belgian yeast. Sweet fruity flavor with grapes and yeastiness. Not bad.

500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Big white head that fades quickly. Misty, warm and golden/light brown body. Sour aroma of hops and alcohol. Taste is fruity and sweet at once, but gets bitter after a while.
