On Tap. Golden color, persistent foam on average. Mouthfeel is light body, fruity, citrus, lemon, balsamic and herbaceous. Very hoppy to be a saison, but it is very drinkable and pleasant. Final average bitter with a refreshing sour note.

2013-02-27, bottle, bb Oct 2013, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Hazy blond color with generous compact head and sticky lace. Aroma of fruity hops and spicy yeast, mild. Dry mouthfeel, soft, well carbonated; the malt flavor is well spicy; correctly bitter, but without clear hop qualities; long final, Belgian style, a bit sandy.
Good beer, well brewed, should have been drunk earlier.

2012-11-20, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 8-4-7-4-15=38
Hazy deep blond color with generous creamy head. Nice aroma, spicy (coriander) with hints of oranges, pine and frankincense. The mouthfeel is quite dry; malt flavor, with nice spicy profile, strong bitterness, but no much fruity presence.
Good.

mjs (4438) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2012
(Bottle, 0.75 l - BBE 08/2012, at One Pint Pub, shared with brunnsbe, 20120725) The beer poured pale golden and hazy. Its heaf was medium sized and white. Aroma had spices, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with quite high carbonation. Flavours were hops, grass, spices, malts, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was grassy and bitter. A saison that had more pils characteristics than the ones of a saison.
