"i may have had a bad one, but i’ve only got one source, so for now, this is it. it was a volcanic brew...i had only half the bottle left b4 it was done. the smell also had a bit of skunk, but not enough to totally cover the coolness underneath. notes of yeast, earthy hops, and fruit. complex flavor too. i may revisit this in the future for hopes of a fresh one, but at $7.99...might be a while. this one was at least a little contaminated."

Garrold (2494) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy yellow. Tight, thin white head. Lovely, yeasty, lemon sorbet aroma. Some sweet, biscuit malt. Light bubblegum and banana, too. Taste is off dry, with a bittersweet edge. Palate is soft, yeasty bread, chewy. Finishes dry, with just the right amount of yeasty tartness. Very nice.

Freaky_tiki (753) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours orange marmalade with a slight hint of cherry sunburst in the bubbly. White wine on the nose. Not really the day for a saison, with this terrible grey toronto day, but I got my saison jones on. Taste is tart, a slight wine like flavour, with a white pepper spicing & slight hint of squeezed citrus. It may not clear the clouds & bring the summer back, but it will do.

Bouteille. Moustache Blanche. Robe blonde trouble , timide mousse blanche. Le nez et la bouche se rejoignent autour du malt, de la levure de saison, le miel, la pêche et les agrumes. Finale sèche et légèrement amère, poivrée et florale. Corps léger. Saison simple et fraîche. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
