11.2oz bottle served in a Duvel tulip. The bottled foamed over as soon as the cap was loosened. Luckily i had my glass handy and only lost a half ounce or so. Poured hazy gold with a large foamy head. Smells sweet with notes of honey, chardonnay, and some dusty cellary type stuff. The flavor is a lot like the smell with some added earthiness. The body is thin and super carbonated. The finish has some lingering honey and a metallic note that I think comes from the massive amount of carbonation. It isn’t your typical saison but it isn’t bad either.

VDuquerroux (208) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A hazy yellow brown beer with a huge thin creamy white head. Like an omelette. Lasting persistence.Beautiful ! Spicy aroma, herbs, gingerbread. First sweet, then medium bitter. Refreshing. Light body, medium silky texture, soft carbonation, refreshing bitter finish. Overall, this one makes me think of an Orval. Beautiful, good herbal spicy bitterness.

mgajdaczewa (429) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 5, 2014
W aromacie drożdże, lekkie cytrusy. W smaku podobnie, wyraźne drożdże, lekka nuta owocowa z przewagą cytryny, wodniste, niewiele się tu dzieje. Brzydkie farfocle w sprorej ilości obniżają ocenę za wrażenia estetyczne. Nie polecam.

JorgeLee (1138) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy slightly dirty yellowish colour, thick white foam. Fresh slightly spicy aroma. Moderately firm body, hints of spicy hop, dry finish. Not very strong flavours but very quenching.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Dégustée en bouteille de 330 ml au Bistro des bières belges à St-Hubert le 8 novembre 2012 au coût de $7.95. Bière ambrée voilée servie trop froide. Col blanc très épais et persistant. Très effervescente. Odeur de levure marquée. Un peu forte en amorce, peu sucrée, assez amère en finale. Goût un peu âcre. Bonne mais sans plus, manque un peu de saveur, plutôt fade.

Solid saison, with a bit more spices than usual, some sweetish notes as well.

A very citrusy aroma. The taste is thinner. Some citrus with some earthy hops. Dry finish. Balanced finish. Decent but not more.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Grosse attaque sur le houblon. Beaucoup de CO2. Très agréable et rafraîchissante.

Hazy golden color, big white head. Sour aroma, no finish, high carbonation. Too ordinary. Not bad, but expected more.

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Clear light amber coloured body with a nice, one centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of light malt, alcohol, vinegar, yeast and apples - no grassy, herbal or funky notes at all. Medium-bodied; Minor yeast and unfinished maltiness with a little sweetness of apples and pears and some noticeable bitterness. Aftertaste shows some minor malty flavours, a little alcohol and not much else - nothing saisony about this at all. Overall, a decent beer, but not much of a saison and not really worth trying, considering the options available. I would not have packed this and brought it home, had a second chance be available. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium on 19-August-2013 for €2,25 sampled at home on this side of the pond in Washington on 26-January-2014.

beeebon (168) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2014
This pours a hazy orange with a big fluffy white head which sticks around for ages. The smell is yeast, hay, slight citrus fruit. The taste is mild and not much in the way of complexity but very tasty all the same. Yeast, mild pepper, mild spice and coriander and mildly citrussy in taste with noticable hop bitterness. Rather fizzy but overall a pleasant beer, especially for the price! Recommended!
