GTAEgeek (1164) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Hazy yellow pour, with a medium, creamy, white head. The aroma is hay, barnyard mustiness, pine, and some light fruitiness. Sweet and musty, with a pretty significant hop bitterness. Long, bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy body, very astringent and velvety. Overall, this is not my favorite beer. The dry hopping added too much bitterness, which overwhelms the more subtle aspects of a good saison. Oh, well.

Sparkling enough with not a strong taste and aroma. I m not sure if it has some hops or maybe some bachars.not the best one in my opinion.

It’s just Saison DuPont with a bit more fruit. Except ... Saison DuPont is one of my favourite beers, so this is very very good. Cloudy straw coloured, with more frothy head than a cappuccino. Some fruity zest alongside the peppery spices on the nose, creamy mouthfeel, more citrus in the taste than regular SD, and more spice alongside the bitterness in the finish. Refreshing, tasty, great.

2014 version at Hiranoya. Lots of hops, grassy, light citrus, good bite. Bit creamy further down. Refreshing. I like this. I can’t describe it. Bit of the bon voeux sweetness about it, but still light and refreshing like the original SD is. Good stuff.

Draft @ Three Fires. Fruity pineapple, citrus, bready malt ,and floral white grape aroma. Hazy straw gold with a small white head. Sweet citrus, Belgian yeast, bready malt, grassy/citrusy hops flavor and white grape came out as it warmed. Light body, moderate carbonation.

wvhoran (93) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle. Golden-amber with a white head. Aroma is white pepper, very lightly peachy, grassy, yeast. Flavour is yeasty, lightly peppery, some fresh citrusy hop notes. Rather mild and subdued. Suits a summer night but my palate was still somersaulting over De Molen’s Vuur en Vlam which had superb heavy-hitting hop flavours.

Garlic_of_Doom (444) - SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2014
Hazy amber, small white head. Fresh hops, yeasty and fruity aroma. Dry fresh taste, light malt and the usual yeasty peppery thingy going on. Light body, soft carbonation, dry mouth feel. Dry yeasty bitter after taste.
Perfect thirst quencher on a humid summers day.
