Bontus (648) - Flanders, - JAN 12, 2013
33cl bottle, Geers. Pours full golden in colour, dense white head with good retention. Spicy yeasty nose. Aroma of dusty / metallic citrusfruits. Touch of anise retronasal. MF sharp tangy and a bit tart. Spelt/wheat ? Taste a touch sour, but balanced. A quenching complex brew.

33cl bottle from MOMH. Gusher despite being well chilled... Bright orange, huge white head. Aroma of pineapple, orange, pepper, ginger. High carbonation. Orange/lemon squash, lightly sweet, slightly tart, big black pepper, ginger heat, prickly spice on the tongue in the finish. Good

fkoolen (391) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
Beautiful brown colour, off-white foamy head. Green apples, ginger, spicy yeast, light but sweet malts, champagne-like tones. Nicely lingering finish. High carbonation but soft mouthfeel, good but light body. Really an one of a kind ale.

Franckg (136) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Odeur un peu étrange de coriandre et de chocolat à la menthe. Très fruitée et herbacé. En bouche, les arômes sont dominants avec une pointe d’agrumes. Il y a un côté acidulé qui se démarque mais qui est plutôt bref. C’est surprenamment bien balancé quand on pense à tout ce que cette bière dégage et c’est très gouteux. Pas assez par contre pour en boire encore une.

Bierridder_S (86) - BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2014 01/11/2014 : 75 cl bottle from Malts Attack @ home. Rusty colour with small white head. Nose is spicy, herbal. Taste especially spices (orange peel, pepper, ...) , little sweetness, little sourness. One of the strangest brews I ever had, however, liked it.

Soft palate with slight citrus acidity and spice. As it warms the complexity and depth come out, leaving a earthy, resin mouthfeel. I think this saison is quite subtle and is more interesting as consumed.

Alengrin (2630) - BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2014
One of the most classic and authentic saisons, continued by Vapeur after the original brewery stopped its brewing activities in 1984. Warm coppery amber colour and spicy character with citrus touches, lots of actual spiciness, some ’wild’ tartness and herbally hoppy finish. Great and respectable example of its style.

Leighton (12296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle shared in the car in Belgium - March 2013. Pours clear gold with fine effervescence and a light, white foam head. Tangy citrus aroma with hints of sour wheat, spices, herbs. Light sweet flavor with mellow spices, sour bread, leaves and pine. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sour tang at the end with notes of orange and tangerine, along with light alcohol warmth. Meh, a bit scattered.

Bill Becker (432) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Just arrived at Liquor Shed in Casper. Okay, a big pop and super gush when I removed the cap. Beer everywhere. It pours a rusty murky colour with a 1 finger head of foam. Nice lacing. A strong spicy nose of coriander, clove, bubblegum. Yeast. A very perfumey nose overall. Everything in the smell is in the taste as well as a strong bitter/tartness of lemon zest and apples, It finishes bitter and tart. Long aftertaste. On the low end of medium bodied, the carbonation, well, it’s healthy to say the least. Other than the huge gush, this was very enjoyable.

Een lekkere saison zoals het hoort te zijn. Ik vond het lekker maar drink dan ook wel eens graag een saison

Draught. Golden cloudy orange pour with a medium off white frothy head. Aroma of tangerines, hay, yeast and barnyard funk. Medium to full bodied with a puckering slightly sour finish.
