Bottle. Hazy dark amber pour with thin pure white head. Aroma of grassy hops, light earthy bretty notes, kind of like orval, grainy, black pepper. Taste is grassy, light acidity, orange peel, citrus. Palate is med bodied, medium carbonation, average sweetness. Original and nice, fun to taste what saison might have tasted like before it became what it is today.

Taster on draft. Clear golden pour. Hay and wet horse blanket, like it was brewed in the barn... Funky! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 750 ml bottle @ Tuulensuu
Golden yellow to orange clear beer which becomes hazy with the yeast poured in. Makes little white head. Aroma is mostly sweet anise, not my thing. Flavor has anise, malts with little sourness. Finish is short with some bitterness. Palate is medium full with light carbonation. I don’t know much about saisons but to me the anise doesn’t fit and I’d prefer a heavier hopping. Still a decent brew with dinner (spinach omelette @ Tuulensuu).

@ Party Source / Bellvue KY - Cloudy bright copper with a head that drops to the rim, a few dots of lace. Taste is malt that is quickly obliterated by a tart, sour, acidic citrus, and a hint of pepper and ginger that carries to the finish. It is different (perhaps that is the Wallonian?), but not quite as drinkable as traditional brews, or even traditional lambics and guezes. It is its own breed - drinkable, but not one I prefer.

kapusil (570) - HUNGARY - DEC 22, 2013
0.75l bottle. Clear amber body, off-white head. The aroma is like the air of a wine cellar with some champagne, apple and orange peel. Taste of toast and cherry. The texture is silky. Interesting beer, I like it.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 Hazy yellow blond, medium carbonation. Sweet sour taste. Aroma of pepper, citrus and anise. Light bitter and dry finish. Good saison.
