Dehydrated pee colour, fruity nose of pears and melon. Too big, too much to say for it’s self. Maybe more the style i have issue with rather than the beer. Too much alcohol for me, don’t know why brewers want to pack Saison’s with so much alcohol, it makes them cloying and sweet. Saison’s were meant to be a light and refreshing summer drink. Did not enjoy.

Freaky_tiki (515) - 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.

EvilCat (80) - FRANCE - AUG 6, 2014
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

jamestulloch (1319) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of lemon, earth, coriander and peach. Soft flavour of pear, blood orange and yeast. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Tastes like a cross between a Belgian Witbier and a Saison.

Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Hazy yellow pour with a decent white head. Light grass and hay in the nose. A pleasant touch of yeast on the palate with some light cracker notes. Grass and lemon finish. No Dupont, but quite nice.
