durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2013
2013 bottle, corked and caged. Pours bright golden, hazy with a pillowy white head. Nose is bright and grassy hops, saison yeast, floral notes, bread, and a hint of the barnyard. Bit of pepper. Taste is bright, zesty, and slightly peppery at the end. Dry and refreshing and I can’t freaking get enough.

jackl (4402) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Keg @ Bridge Tap. Hazy gold with a tiny head. Nose is brilliant mandarin orange, Belgian countryside, haystack, pears. Wonderfully vibrant. Taste is deft, light. Peppered grass shavings, orange peel. Melon smoothie. Bretty dryness. Delicious. Light body, soft. Wow.

Trappist1 (427) - Diest, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2014
2014, 375ml bottle. Grain, fresh hops in nose. Missing some punch, but taste is wel balanced, bitter and dry. Dry hopping is wel noticeable. Very summer a-like. Somehow, it does not get through to me... Unfortunately? Ok, but prefer the traditional one...

Garrold (1154) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, dark straw colour. Bubbly, sticky, white head. Fresh, bready, and fusty yeast. Grassy, lemon hop. Taste is bone dry, and light bitter. Dry, crisp, zesty palate. A light, oily hop there, too. Finish is off dry, and light, grassy bitter. Lovely.

caesar (4974) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2014
Bottled from Lekker Bier, 2014 version BB 03/2017, large sample, served in a trappist glass. Hazy yellow to golden color, big rocky white head. Aroma of spicy and peppery yeast, slight onion and garlic, soft hoppy, bit grassy. Soft bitterness in taste, quite dry and sparkling. Medium to high carbonation, low to medium body. Fresh hoppy version of a Saison Dupont. Good balance.

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.

Sjohnh (126) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
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.

shoulderbroken (1909) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2014
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.

375ml bottle. Golden, slightly hazy, body with a huge lace-leaving white head. Hay, barnyard, spices and yeast.

queenholly (2865) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2014
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.
