SinH4 (2185) - Garching, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2016
Brewed 09.02.15. Hazy orange color with huge white head. Aroma is lime, lemongrass, exotic fruits (more towards physalis, starfruit, gooseberries and the likes, not mango & passion fruit), peppery yeasts. Taste goes back and forth between a strong peppery yeast character with that Belgian funk and new world hops with exotic fruits as described in the aroma, also a bit earthy and some hints of a caramel maltiness (and of course wheat) shines through. Dry peppery finish, also a bit bitter. Complex and refreshing at the same time, despite the comparably high ABV for a Saison. Medium carbonation. This is beautiful. The bottle overflowed with a living foam that built up slowly and came out of the neck after I poured half of it. Something magic has happened with this bottle :P I am in love and I while I usually expect good things from the involved breweries, this exceeded my expectations by a lot. Pairing this with some spiced sausage and flavoursome cheese lets the hops shine through more. The recommendation works out.

ciocanelu (911) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 2, 2016
Hazy yellow color with fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty with some herbs and lemongrass. Taste starts nice with yeast and some floral flavors. Finish is a bit astringent, bitter and slightly boozy. Not bad but it has some flaws.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - MAR 19, 2016
Golden with a thick white head. Spicy, yeasty, hoppy, pineapple. Medium sweet, lightly soir, rather dry and bitter finish. Average carbonation, rather full bodied. Good but heavy saison. Not really for thirst.

500ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Golden yellow with a large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of hops, citrus, some coriander and other spice, bready. The flavour is of spices, citrus hops, pale malts, peppery, some yeast. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes nicely bitter, lingering. A nice saison. Faily bitter, not overely spicy.

10/4/2011 7:51:30 AM Bottle from Bierkoning. Bright orange body with puffy head. Nose is hoppy and fruity with plenty of citrus. Taste also lots of citrus and bitter finish. Quite an interesting blend, that I liked but perhaps too much citrus for me.
