COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Aroma is stunningly fruity and fresh: citrus and excotic fruits like mango, pineapple. And this through a really thick, creamy white head. This beer looks and smells like someone had just made it. Inviting. Taste is bit sour and sweet and finish bitter. Same elements as aroma but malt is there also..bread and caramel. Creamy with soft carbonation. Overall...I’m in love.

wlajwl (3875) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Aroma is piney hops, citrus and slightly effervescent yeast. The flavor is grapefruit, resiny hops, and a spicy yeast flavor. Another excellent ale from this brewery, a great twist on a saison.

jstraw (1919) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Orange with big, foamy, white head / Bright, earthy nose of orange, grapefruit, herb, and weed / Medium body, somewhat sweet and chewy, with great balance and lightly bitter finish / Fresh but reserved flavors of orange, pine, grapefruit, straw, sage, coriander, and weed / An elegant, superbly balanced ipa, or hoppy saison.

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2012
0,5l bottle. Pours hazy pale golden with a awesome head. The aroma from this beer is so awesome, fresh hops and blegian yeast in perfect matrimony. The same goes for the flavors. One of my top 10 favorites!

KnutAlbert (6085) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2011
Bottled. Hazy gold. Lovely tropical fruit punch aroma, similar to Thornbridge Kipling. Peaches, pineapple, quinine bitterness, some funky saison overtones. Bitter finish that cleans the palate. Lovely refreshing beer - an instant favourite.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle at Atticus Finch. Great IPA, subtle and well balanced. Aromas of caramel, grass, milk chocolate, with hints of grain. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, cloudy, with a frothy head.

DanielBrown (3809) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Pours a beautiful light amber, with a big dollop of white fluff. Smells as dry as a bone, with some white wine qualities. It’s marvellous. Super dry as it enters your mouth, with a hint of funk; then the hops emerge: super bitter, but lightly crisp. There is a bit of Belgian yeast on the finish too. An excellent experiment, which is flavoursome and refreshing.

cardofab (229) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - AUG 7, 2012
Eccezionale birra che riesce ad essere in ogni aspetto sorprendente, sia al naso per l’intense note fruttate e luppolate, sia al palato dove ci sono i richiami allo stile belga con spiccate note di pompelmo rosa ed un bel finale amaro.

Maytika (10) - FRANCE - MAY 31, 2012
Cette bière blonde respire la fraîcheur. Mélange harmonieux entre des matières premières belges, australiennes, et norvégiennes, cette bière au goût de fruits exotiques est idéale en dégustation avec du fromage ou de la charcuterie.
