One my favorite saisons. Aroma is sweet tropical fruit, peach, hint of grass. Flavor has some of that same sweetness, but balanced with lemon, a touch of sourness, and a good dose of bracing hops. Not quite with Dupont, but excellent.

Huhzubendah (2726) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Hazy orange body with a thick, off-white head. Aromas include stone fruits, yeast, a touch of fruity hops. Apple, pear, melon, Belgian yeast strain. Moderate sweetness. More akin to a tripel than a saison. Decent, but one pour is plenty. Sweet + alcohol = limited drinkability.

Classic Belgian yeast fruity clove aroma.Hazy orange body with reddish center. Head foams up quick but steadily dwindles as it laces the glass nicely. Light bitterness. Light citrus tart taste. Peppery champagne mouth feel. Refreshing soft fruity tart finish.

Vells (773) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 11, 2015
Very delicious saison with accent on hoppy grapefruity push, but always keeping balance with decent caramel malty background, bit wheat. Some yeastiness.Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness, quite dry finish. Refreshing and highly enjoyable

Excellent lightly fruity nose, great citrus notes in the taste. Excellent balance of sweet and just a tiny touch of sour. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reberiii (373) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Pulling from memory: nicely rounded farmhouse ale without too much of any one note...maybe a touch heavy on the citrus soda, but that’s a good thing to me. Not too much hay, funk, or cheese flavor, just enough to give it a wildesque ale taste. Refreshing. Not a pounder, but you could easily put down several in a session.

Fukito (814) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 25, 2014
Very slightly hazy golden color with a creamy meringe like white head. Aroma is yeasty citricness/ sour mineral with some spicy phenols. Flavor is sweet spicyness with just a balancing touch of lemony sourness. Gentle spicy/ sours aftertaste. Medium palate, tasty and refreshing. Solid medium strenght saison.

Bottle. Pours golden with rimming white head. Grassy, lemony notes in the nose. Bready, grassy notes, dirty spices and herbal finish. Dry and awesome....
