Flaske (batch 1051) fra polet: meget veloppdragent skum! Deilig aroma av nellik, bitterappelsin og umiskjennelig belgisk gjær. Smaken er tørr og har en fin blanding av beskhet og friskhet. En typeriktig og lekker øl.

A really refresing saison. A bit cloudy golden color with a small head. I suspect the really old glass it was served in killed the head.

Not to cloudy with a stable head. Good taste for Saison with a bitter taste but mot over powering would work as a summer or refreshing winter beer coming in from the cold ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mooi bier ongefilterd en een mooie kleine schuimkraag. Het bier zet vol en zoet aan maar heeft toch een droge bittere afdronk. De balans tussen zout en bitter is zeer mooi met een goede doordrinkbaarheid ---Rated By the Belleketels

DWG: Pours hazy orange/golden with a medium lasting, leaving lacings, creamy off-white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, grassy and fruity with notes of pepper. Taste adds sweet and banana. Medium body, soft carbonation, crispy texture with a dry, sweet, spice finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Terry, for bringing this for New Years Eve - @ Party Source - Bellvue KY. Cloudy dirty golden amber, 1/4" white head, bands of lace. Many dots of sediment. A marriage of wheat, malt, and citrus begin this saison, adding a touch of ginger and perhaps a little clove as it grows through the palate; a balancing light bittering briskly finishes things off. This is a big, satisfying saison that hides its alcohol well behind a full-bodied taste. Highly recommended.
