From a bottle into a snifter. Large white frothy head that lingers for a while, completely opaque flat yellow straw color. Nose is lemon, grapefruit, some wine character, barnyard. Medium bodied, medium carbonation moderately funky with a touch of sweetness, tartness and sourness as is warms. A supremely balanced beer, incredibly refreshing. Lingering finish of the nelson sauvin hops lemon. Very enjoyable.

Bottle... Pours cloudy and yellow with no head. The aroma is crackery and bready with a lightly-acidic vinous note. Full-bodied with gentle carbonation. The flavor is sweet and bready with a hint of white wine and a whisper of lemon zest. Yeasty bitterness in the finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

"My my my...lovin the hoppy funky brews. More farm than just the traditional saison yeast. Tropical fruit and barnyard, finishes bone dry. LOVE it. One of my top few in style. Wish it were a little cheaper."

Sample @ RBWG Asheville After Party. Gold pour with a small head. Citrus fruits, a bit of Belgian countryside funk. Nice herbal hop character. Bright yeast. Soft straw and citrus. Somewhat chalky. Medium body, soft carbonation. Cool.

From bottle. I really wanted to like this, being not far from my home town. Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. Big funky nose with some citrus. Taste is citrus, hay, barnyard, and funk.

Pour is heavily hazed straw yellow with a tight creamy white head. Nose is heavy grapefruit juice, tropical tartness, tons of hop, notes of leather. taste has lots of grapefruit, moderately bitter, light body. Balance of grainy malt, faintly floral and semi dry with a hint of leather. Brett? Rather hoppy.

Sampled under less than ideal circumstances B.C."H."; dirty grey-straw beer. Hoppy nose, with exotic fruit, grapes and some cat’s pee; other grains, perfumed soap. Bitterish-wry, again other grains and wild fruit, slightly veggie. Bit of lunaria. Hopimprint less in the flavour than in the nose, that smacks of APA/IPA and Nelson Sauvin, rather than of ’saison’. Bit of grist-slick, light body, carbonation gone. Anything can be called Saison. Doesn’t make it Hainautois for that matter. Many thanks to the Vermeerschbros

Fantastic beer. Has a pleasantness, reminiscent of Saison Dupont, but it’s a bit edgier and funkier. Bright esters of citrus and rind in the finish, along with a peppery bitterness. Slight barnyard funkiness gives it depth. Meadowy aromas in the background. Enjoyed it a lot.
