I was just going to enjoy this, but the low review average confuses and upsets me enough to inspire a review. Yellow-gold color with a creamy white head that retains well and leaves a nice spotty lacing. Smells of ginger, citrus zest, musty, earthy, spicy, and also somewhat floral. Taste is spicy up front while quickly moving into a bready taste with some citrus before moving into an earthy finish. Somewhat high carbonation with a medium body, but still a somewhat dry finish.

@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 (4897) - 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 (389) - 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 (135) - 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.

stevoj (2064) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 17, 2014
on the money saison, pours hazy golden with oil skin head. Light hazy golden, some fizziness n the carbonation livens the palate. Malt, grain and yeast vie for attention, and compete equally. This is a great example of a saison, light, complex and delicious.

Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, dough, yeast, hay, flowers, honey, sugar, banana, almonds, light malts, hints of dried fruits. Taste is very medical harsh, cardboard, almond essence, heather, bark, weeds, hay, harsh yeast. Longlasting harsh bitterness, very dry and watery mouthfeel. Drainpour!

haukur (1282) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 24, 2014
Nice barnyard aroma. Some cheese and peppers. Reminds me a bit of Dupont. Light golden color. Nice acidity on the tongue. Farmhouse yeast pops right out. Subtle bitterness. Extremely well made. I would well imagine that Dupont is the influence behind this beer.
