Copper coloured, sparkling with a fine, dense head. Complex, hop base with fruity touch. Well pronounced bitterness, appreciated for its thirst-quenching and lightness.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is murky dusty spices, some bready malt and some yeast. Flavour is dry thin malty with some spice. Boring but quenching is right.

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle from local Yamaya. Yeast! big time in the aroma; also a light honeyish caramel sweetness. Dark yellow-brown, with a big fluffy head, and a whirlwind of carbonation flying up. Initial is also yeasty, sweetish,. candi sugar; mid flattens out into a slurry of sugary paste; final is tingling and leave a bit of spice and bitterness. Too yeasty, really, and over-carbonated. Contains anise and licorice, but they are barely detectable.

stevoj (2025) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Nice copper/amber color on this saison, thick creamy head with lots of sticky lacing. Poured into tulip glass. Aroma is faint, but taste kicks in with flavors of toffee and whiskey. Perfect for sipping on a Sunday afternoon...

JesseM (1150) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Bottle from Cellier des Arcades, Arras. A darker Saison of sorts, with a large biege head. Very floral aroma, quite impressive actually, like a good perfume. Flavour has a seriously deep, rich malt character with red grapes and a dry finish. Quite an interesting beer, especially as a Saison. I guess I’m not familiar enough with the style to know the variety within it probably caused largely by all the Ontario versions being glorified Witbiers (no offense OCB, but your Saisons are weak as hell).

Aniela (2313) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2012
Bottle at 3 Små Rum, Gothenburg. Amber beer with a offwhite head. Citrus, malty, fruity and a bit sourish aroma. Fruity and hoppy flavour.

TET (1578) - FINLAND - JUL 27, 2012
Pours a copper brown, a head is big and beige. Aroma of fruits, some sweetness, spicyness and herbal hoppyness; simple, but tastefull aroma. Taste is (belgian)fruity, some spicyness, hint of sourness and lemon, quite light taste. Light+ bodied, lots of carbonation, but that is smooth. Refeshning and zesty, great aroma, but otherwise slightly light and gentle.

_angst_ (2622) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle @ 3 Små Rum. Pours clear deep golden with a big frothy and fizzy goldenish white head that is rather quick to dissipate while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is tiny sweet and tiny sour with plums, lime hard candy, hay, dry soil, cereal, lemon zest, grape zest, white pepper, overripe lemons and hints of barnyard. Taste is slightly sweet, very tiny bitter and tiny metallic with cereal, crackers, hay, white pepper, dry soil, lemon zest, grape zest, biscuits, orange zest and hints of wet leaves. Mouthfeel is slightly crisp, round and light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet, tiny bitter and floral with biscuits, grass, dry soil, white pepper and cereal. Quite refreshing.
