MrHangover (3583) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2012
Draft. Golden color, white head. Smells great, full of floral hops and has some sour notes as well. Flavor has a fresh sweetness and a great drinkability. This is great!

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2015 Light yellow golden, small bubbly head. Very citric, fresh. Not as yeasty as the normal saison, but maybe because this is on tap. Drinks well, nicely carbonated. Well dry, cleanly developed. Nice! But... like the normal better I think! (On tap at Delft beer festival 2012)

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 20, 2012
1.5L at Campdown Brewdown. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a massive, pillowy white head. Awesome formation and retention/lace. Nose is heavy apples, esters, sweet apple juice. Taste is tangy and sweet apple juice. Green apple. Very cidery with acetaldehyde flavors throughout. Disappointing.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2012
(Draught at Café Rose Red, Brugge, 17 July 2012) Hazy golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of grass, hay, citrus and hints of yeast. Malty, hoppy taste with bread, grass, citrus, hints of yeast and a fresh, grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. As expected, a very nice beer with a fresh and tasty hop profile.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2012
75 cl Bottle @ BPW, Antwerp. Yellow white hazy coloured beer with almost no carbonation and a small white head. Citrussy fruity (green apple) fruity hinted aroma with some hoppy bitter sweet hints. Medium to full palate. Finish is bitter sweet hoppy and fruity hinted. Not bad.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Tap @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Cloudy dark yellow appearance with a cream white head. Very nice floral, dandelion, grassy/straw, a bit zesty/spicy aroma. Starts out fairly dry and sweetens a bit further on. Straw, hay, floral, light citrusy, somewhat earthy, zippy, herbal flavor. Quaffable but I think I prefer the normal version based on this one taste. (4.1) Update: Bottle tasted back in good ol’ Colorado and it is quite delicious. (4.3)
