biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JAN 31, 2009
This beer poured a cloudy yellow golden color with generous white head that dissipated to a thin film along the top. The aroma was of citrus, spice, and yeast. The flavor was of the same with more citrus coming through. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied. The drinkability was pretty high and would be nice on a hot day.

Delicious aroma. Sunshine clear yellow with an abundant white head that lasts and laces to the last drink. I get a sweetness at the beginning that I find quite appealing. It’s light with soft carbonation and I get absolutely no bitterness at all. This could be the best saison I’ve had to date. I am quite taken with it’s sweetness and really every quality is impressive.

Wolfenkopf (193) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2016
The aroma is of citrus fruit and light malt. The beer is a foggy yellow and the head is thick, though it settles with time. The taste is malt with a strong citrus note that favors lemon. This is a pretty hearty saison. The palate is assaulted with carbonation that lingers for a while, but a oily presence is left behind. This is a more robust version of their petite saison. Not my style, but very well done.

krumbum (991) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Great mix of Belgian spice and wet basement funk in the smell. Super hazy golden color active head calms to a lasting lair. Super big Belgian spice bold but balanced light banana, clove, nice slow dryness.

Jordi_vlc (9) - SPAIN - SEP 21, 2016 does not count
Botella comprada en la Boutique de la Cerveza (Valencia). Cerveza turbia de color paja con una muy fina capa de espuma blanca que desaparece rápidamente. Aromas espaciados, a levadura y quizás algún matiz muy sutil de fruta. Carbonatación media-ata, en la boca seca desde el principio, con agradables sabores de cereales, especias y sensación algo alcohólica, pero muy bien integrado y que deja una agradable sensación durante un tiempo.

12 oz. bottle. Poured hazy golden, white head. Aroma was grapefruit, apricot, earthy, yeast. Taste was mild sweet, medicinal, fizzy carbonation.

TheKernOwl (196) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Nicely layered - pineapple, lemon zest and scallops on nose. Then creamy in mouth before seawater-y tang mixed with almost malt sweetness (like a Vienna style ale).
