(50 cl bottle from Den Nordiske Ølhandel; Batch #755; BBD; January 25th 2017) Pours a slightly hazy amber, with frothy, white head and lively carbonation. Beautiful lacework, good retention and decent regeneration. Aroma is fresh and vinous with notes of saison yeast and some tropical fruits. Oily texture, medium body with a moderately bitter and astringent finish. Flavour follows the nose but has more herbal hoppy bitterness. An exciting and pleasant beer although I would prefer it with a little less ABV and hop bitterness and ever so slightly more aromatic hops. I guess the aroma would be more hop forward had I gotten it fresher. This one was brewed 12 months ago already.

Aromaty belgijsko cytrusowe. Piana bardzo obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa, dość szybko się rozpada ładnie krążkująca na szkle. W barwie wręcz słomkowe, lekko opalizujące. Ze szklanki już mniej czuć chmiele a więcej Belgii, typowo owocowe nuty brzoskwiniowe wręcz winne. Słody lekko ostrawe, oraz umiarkowana goryczka bardzo ładnie się komponują. Lekko przebijający się alkohol, ale delikatnie i w przyjemny owocowy sposób.

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle (500 ml) @ Brewberry (Paris). Bottled on 08-05-2013. Hazy golden/orange with a frothy mostly lasting off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is yeasty and very citrus forward with some spices and floral notes. Taste is also yeasty and spicy with citrus, malt, some sticky bitterness, floral notes and light alcohol. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Even after 1 year, it’s still taste fresh and it’s quite drinkable. The alcohol isn’t too noticeable until the end of the bottle. Good hoppy/citrusy Saison.

Bottle. Aroma is minty hoppy, citrusy, light barnyard. Hazy golden colour. Taste is quite assertively hoppy, fresh-cut grass, herbal. Saisony barnyard character in the background, nevertheless present. Refreshing, leaving a fresh impression. Good one.
