SirLimpsalot (3450) - SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2012
@ Basunen: Trevlig belgodoft med tydlig tutti frutti. Lätt smakrik öl, lagom krydrad med en viss sträv eftersmak.

gyllenbock (6899) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget, 1,5 liter, vintage 2012. Hazy golden with a large white head. Easy to drink with hay, fruit, hops and some notes of yeast. Also something that reminded of "tutti-frutti". A pleasant one.

JoeinDahlem (1437) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2012
Lovely thing, which might have more success as an educational tool than as an improvement over the original. Had on draft. Herbal-minty hop nose might be subduing some of the yeasty esters (or it could be because this one hasn’t developed in the bottle). Familiar moderate bitterness and dry finish. Would love to do side-by-side, or else drink about 10 more of these to work the rest out.

jredmond (7132) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Glouglouburp at Kramer’s Campground Brewdown 2012. Pours a hazy golden body with nice, thick white head. Aroma is zest, yeast, citrus and lemon. Mouthfeel is super carbonated with a ton of spice up front, lemon, bitter grassy hop and yeast. Not a big fan of this, but very greatful I was able to try it.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 2014-07-08. Crisp yellow body, nice white head. Aroma of floral hops, pale malt. Flavour is similar, lightly bitter throughout, floral and grassy over pale malt. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Quite drinkable. 7/3/7/3/14-15 Bottle, Tasting at cgarvieuk’s, Edinburgh

2012-08-18. Hazy dark yellow body with a nice white head. 3+ Flavour is on the dry side, with a good amount of bitterness and hop character. Grassy hops, whispers of lemon. 7+ Yeasty aroma, floral character to the hops, very muted pale malt 6+ Average plus palate feels fuller due to fairly high carbonation. 3+ Enjoyable. 7/3/7/4/15 Giant Bottle, Campground Brewdown 2012 shared by Glouglouburp

Tapped at Mikkeller Bar, july 18th 2012. Hazy golden, big white head. Aroma of orange, spices, malt, grassy hops, lots of them. Taste of honey, citrus, grass, yeast and clove. Well balanced, good bitterness, and a really nce refreshing aftertaste.

On tap at Deflt beer festival. Light and golden to pour, little head. Floral and fruity. Medium bodied and slightly bitter. Not bad at all.

MrHangover (3717) - 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 (4918) - 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)
