Bottle from whole foods... confirming what most have said already... This beer is super delicious! Very drinkable indeed! Wish I could get my hands on more here in northern California... Worth the 7 or 8 bucks I paid absolutely!

Bottle from Slowbeer (Feb 2013). Bright, clear golden, small white head, saison yeast character dominates, peppery/spicy, preserved lemons, dusty dry bitterness, slightly soapy finish. Nice.

Quando l’ho assaggiata pensavo di essere in Vallonia, talmente è fedele allo stile. Speziata al naso, e davvero godibile al palato.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, april 19th 2014. Hazy orange body with a nice white head. Citrusy aroma with flowers, peppery yeast, long sweet fruit. Taste has a notable saison yeast note, and apples also sweet rye and malt, a tad sweet for me, and a strong malty and citric finish. Quite malty for a saison.

Goodgrief (1790) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from Julio’s. Clear golden color, minimal head. Aroma lacks fruitiness, but a distinct herbal mustiness. Flavor does have some pear like fruit flavors, a lot of some spice...maybe coriander? Dry mouthfeel. Well balanced. Good effort.

Yorker (1190) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a lot of sediment and a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are spices, lemons, herbs, and yeast - with a bitter finish.

SirLimpsalot (2135) - SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2014
@Basunen 14-8-16: riktig trevlig doft, lite söt och med tydliga drag mot veteöl. Smaken är lite söt men med en fin balans mot frukt och krydda. Ingen större brett eller torrhet men trevlig åndå. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bomber from Wines and More of Rhode Island. No clear glassware was available in my hotel room so I cannot really see the beer. It smells like a saison with that distinctive yeast and malt character. Flavor is pretty much down the middle for the style. Not really exciting but a solid beer. A bit of spice along with the yeast and malts. Throw in some light citrus. This just a bit soapy which is as it should be. A nice beer.

rjplumer (396) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Has bread/yeast aroma with a touch of orange. Milky burnt yellow color a good two inch head. Bread like taste with a slightly sour finish. Bubbles attack your tongue with the carbonation. Some hint of lemon in the background. Finish is a light mix of sweet and sour. Refreshing overall and enjoyable.

Garlic_of_Doom (448) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Amber with a small white head. Aroma has (surprisingly) lots of bready malt, orange and clementine. Taste has caramel/fudge and a nice grapefruit and herbal bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Short after taste.
While not very true to the style, this was a good beer.

Helsdon (159) - Toronto, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Good rating on this one prompted me to grab it, hope it’s good. Pours a clear yellow-gold with a decent white head. Nose of grainy malts, yeast, bubble-gum, citrus. Mild creamy malts, citric acid, some bubble-gum and a touch of cilantro-type herbal-ness. Not bad.
