AirForceHops (3182) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle shared by Adam. Pours a hazy straw golden color with a large white head. The aroma noticeable floral hop presence. The flavor has a pleasant barnyard funk, dry, coriander, lemongrass, ample yeast character, some peppery notes, bready malts and hay. A nice dry hopping of a classic example of the style.

Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl datée de 2014, couleur blonde trouble, belle mousse compacte et bien blanche, effervescence moyenne, au nez très floral type fleur jaune comme la jonquille, en bouche on sent la saison dupont en première bouche, mais belle continuité sur le houblon frais assez floral genre jasmin et fin de bouche amer très herbeuse, excellent !

Trappist1 (495) - 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 (1332) - 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 (5123) - 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.

giorgos_gtc (95) - GREECE - JUL 28, 2014
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.
