Maakun (1536) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2015

Hammy78 (870) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a yellow/ gold/ copper, with about a half finger of pure white head, some minor lines of lace. Nose is spot on for style, spice, a touch of funk, a bit of the citrus you find with some euro wheat beers. Tastes sweet, wheaty, citrus and a touch of bitterness from the hops. The spice is hard to place completely, but I do get some peppercorn. Quite sessionable.

sharkydodson (628) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 13, 2015
the aroma is malty with hints of flowers, herbs, straw and citrus... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of orange, herbs and spices... smooth hoppy bitterness... dry, sweet and bitter aftertaste... good saison...

GuideDogSaint (809) - Xiamen, CHINA - JAN 10, 2015
500ml bottle at Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of yeast and malt. Bitter finish. Not much going on here. Thought I’d choose Nogne O for rate 500 but this was a little disappointing.

500 ml bottle
Hazy light orange beer with big white head. Aroma and flavor have grass, honey, Belgian yeast, apple, orange, coriander, pepper and other spices. Palate is quite thick with medium carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness. Decent, but could be more refreshing, it’s kind of creamy and heavy.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2014
Bouteille 50cl de Bierhalle, batch# 1137, BB 04/03/2016. Orangée moyen, col blanc léger et crémeux. Arôme au bouquet typiquement belge mais sans vraiment restitué le côté de saison, je note un rétro noble houblonné et un malt pils. Palais est carrément hors sujet au niveau de saison, on retrouve néanmoins les impressions des grandes bières d’usines belges. Pas de caractère rustique avec une levure un peu à la traine et qui rappelle presque la Leffe. Fini légèrement grains avec des notes de pils. En l’état ce n’est pas une saison.

deepeary (288) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Brewed 27.02.13, batch # 930. Pours a murky yellow with minimal white head. Below average carbonation. Nose has some yeasty funk, fruit. Same for the taste, some bitterness and tartness on the finish.. Weak nose/flavour, Needs more everything.

RhetoricalAns (596) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
500 mL bottle. Hazy gold, fairly small white head from a fairly soft pour. Fruity aroma, lemon, peach, banana also dough yeast. Taste Has a bit of funk to it, bitter-sweetness, cereal and dough malts at its base and some earthiness as well.
