Bottle with some coworkers. Pours a murky golden orange with fluffy off-white than recedes to a thin, lasting covering and bubbly spotted lace. Nose of funky yeast, hay, citrus. Flavor of lemon, grapefruit, grass, yeast, hay, stone fruit, coriander, pepper. Medium body.

2014. Tap at Jacs. Unfitlered orange-tan body with a massive white head. Earthy, mellow aroma, hints of melon. Has that nice dry, refined peppery yeast tone, but with some tropical citrus tones too..reminiscent of Belgian IPA. Not really as good as the original, but still sublime, really easy and smooth on the palate. The yeast is dry, flavorful, so much more refined than a typical Saison. Pretty excellent. Mellow lemon-lime. Keeps getting better as I sip at it.

tomer (2425) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 22, 2015
At a tasting, many thanks, 2014 edition, big bubbly head, quite cloudy citrus orange color, aroma of wood, spice, yeast and some cardboard, flavor of wood, almond and vanila with a hint of fruit, and a light maltiness in the back medium bitterness. Nice but relatively simple and not too hoppy.

Thousand of thanks to bartlebier for this bottle! 2014. Trübes goldgelb mit reichlich Schaum. Etwas malzig, hopfig, fruchtig, Zitrus, grüner Tee, eine dezente Säure, im Abgang leicht bitter, sehr lecker!

Piana biała, obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, dość trwała. Barwa złota, lekko opalizująca ze sporym zmętnieniem na dnie, piwo ładnie bąbelkuje w szkle. Aromat mocno chmielowy, pilsowy, dominują trawiasto ziołowe elementy a w tle estry od belgijskich drożdży (jasne winogrona, brzoskwinie, białe wino, ciasto drożdżowe) oraz zielone oliwki. W smaku półsłodkie, przyjemna owocowość, przyprawy, zioła i słodowość kontrowana jest średnią do niskiej goryczką, pieprzno chmielową. Alkohol dobrze ukryty, choć w połączeniu z pikantnością rozgrzewa w przełyku. Nagazowanie średnie do wysokiego.

Huge thanks to quack-duck for that one! 2014. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Starts dry, hoppy, grasy, light sourish. Fruity notes of lemon, some grape. Bitter background. Light soapy notes. Finish milder, dry-hoppy, less fruity. Not bad!

Mjp12 (976) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2015
2014 bottle, this exploded out of the bottle, giving a frothy white head, nice saison aroma, with an extra bitter finish from the dry hopping. There is quite a sweet alcohol layer in there as well.

acearl (444) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2015
2013 vintage. Not sure if it is aged or just sat around for 2 extra years. Hazy brown apricot hue with thick cream lasting white head. Smells of a sugary yeast. A bit sweet, medium texture a bit more hoppy than the non dry hopped version but nothing overwhelming bread/yeast prevails. Pretty good.

guzgorog (529) - FRANCE - AUG 19, 2015
Cuvée 2014 bue en 2015. Blonde légèrement orangée, trouble, haute mousse blanche très persistante. Nez lévuré typique de la saison et houblons herbeux. Bouche assez amère, levure, houblon côté floral et herbeux, quelques esthers. Très bonne carbo, corps aérien, très bonne longeur. Superbe saison, je regrette de ne pas en avoir une autre sous la main ...

A big surprise. I liked beer. Fresh, powerful, with a point of imbalance thank you very much. Maybe a little too much gas, but also a persistent foam amazing. A bitter taste at the end of the mouth, persistent and very nice. A beer for summer and retain repeat.

Infected? At jester king. Smells like a complex saison with tart. Really dry. What a theme. Slightly tart. A little spicy. I could drink a bunch of this but it’s not mind blowing. Pours a bit cloudy with lots of head.
