Bottle. Yellow, hazy, well carbonated. Citrusy, light coriander, hayish pale malty nose. Belgy yeastyness, very typical saison aroma. Smooth medium full body, refreshing, flavourful nice. This is a really clean, nice, text-book saison. Can’t find anything bad about it, except that it’s almost too textbooky.

reebtogi (4520) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
500ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity and yeasty with some citrus. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a light earthy and yeasty finish. Light to medium body with good carbonation. A decent saison, but not quite up their with the best of the style.

Derek881 (1030) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a hazy straw-gold color with rising bubbles and a smallish foamy white head with short retention, and very little cling or lacing. Its aroma was a pleasant blend of floral scents with pine, yeast, wheat, and straw; perhaps some citrus fruit too. The taste was a sour fruity and floral mix with some herbal notes and bits of grain and yeast, along with a light sweet-bitter blend of citrus. It had a fairly lively and watery mouthfeel which was somewhat filling and crisp.

Wischylini (145) - Grimstad, NORWAY - APR 28, 2014
Pours a hazy, somewhat light golden colour, with a decent head that stays for a while and leaves a nice lacing. The aromas are pepper, hay, apples, berries, banana and sweet malts. The taste is sweet, and mildly bitter, although the finish is nice and dry. The body is medium, and the carbonation is very lively.
