On tap at Fermentoren, København. Lovely mixture of the caracteristic saison and lots of hops. Want more!

alteregoo (413) - POLAND - OCT 10, 2015
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.

kappldav123 (5542) - GERMANY - SEP 29, 2015
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 (886) - 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 (435) - 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 (510) - 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 ...

llucmaduell (68) - barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2015
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.

lownote (346) - USA - AUG 16, 2015
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.

rouhlas (1507) - GREECE - AUG 6, 2015
From tap. Hazy golden color with white to off white head. Yeasty and hoppy aroma, spicy, floral, citrusy fruity. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with average carbonation.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5669) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with an enormous fomay white head that left excellent lacing. The aorma was drysih, a bit chalky, perfumey hops and a bit of citrus. The flavor was dry, bitter, perfumey, chalky, musty and had a touch of black pepper. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.
