Bottle at home. Pours lightly yellow. Smells a bit sour but yeasty sweet. Taste is slightly sour. High carbonation. Good but I liked the original one better.

tricksta_p (1963) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
2014. I think this should have a seperate entry, because a whole other variety of hop was used than the 2013 version. Anyway, let’s get down to the aroma. It’s very fruity and earthy, has some Belgian funk, citrus, honey, yeast, malt, with some spicy and floral notes. Flavour is malty and fruity sweetness, some spices and hops. Not especially hoppy, rather subtle. Remarkably complex and well-balanced. This is really damned tasty. I’ll have to get my hands on a couple more.

EdwinLitzau (320) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Mooie goudkleur, dikke laag wit schuim, veel koolzuurgas. Ruikt moutig en hoppig. Zachte geur. Smaakt erg goed, tamelijk bitter.

Franzen (399) - SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2014
Tart aroma, overripe strawberries, and actually some eggs, sulphur? Hazy yellow white head. Honey like sweetness in the taste, some citrus and a somewhat bitter finish. Light dry body, lively carbonation. The egg aroma is disturbing, except that it is a nice saison.

TET (2117) - FINLAND - MAY 23, 2014
Version 2014, a bottle. A hazy, light yellow beer with a big and blond head. The nose is enjoyable, mix of fruits and grains, some spices and flowers. Taste is quite dry, slightly fruitfull, quite strong hoppyness that gives herbal spicyness and some flowers into the taste, lemon, hint of earthy sourness. Medium bodied, fresh, high carbonation, refreshning. Very nice beer with strong hoppyness.

EddyBeer1 (1045) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2014
Version 2014 en 37,5 cl. Dorée trouble, effervescence forte de visu, légère au palais, col blanc nuageux abondant et persistant. Bons malts clairs, bonne amertume de pamplemousse, notes de fruits jaunes-oranges, le dry hopping se fait moins sentir qu’attendu. Une Saison d’une finesse exemplaire!
