kapusil (961) - HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2016
0.375l bottle, vintage 2014. Hazy golden body, huge white head. Aroma and taste of bread, orange peel, lemon zest, cheese, pepper and spicy, earthy hops. Effervescent and light medium bodied. Pretty awesome.

Cristobal37 (539) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2016
2014 bottle thanks to Kapusil! Awesome aroma of sweet lemon, basement aroma, pepper. Taste similar with nice piney hops. Drying finish. Slight honey sweetness at the end but otherwise a great saison.

375 ml bottle. White creamy and persistent head. Color is orange which turns opaque while pouring the yeast in the glass. The classic smell and taste of saison yeast is lowered by the dry hopping which entered new citrus flavors. Good beer but still prefer the regular Saison Dupont.

375ml systembolaget. En trevlig öl som passade utmärkt till räkorna. Lite jordiga toner i eftersmaken.

nuplastikk (5374) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2015
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 (2523) - 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!
