A burst of Belgian yeast spices and lemongrass on the nose followed by a refreshing, bittersweet mouthfeel and lots of big Champagne yeast bubbles. A perfect marriage with delicately spiced and Asian food dishes.

Quite a good saison but I can not taste the lemongrass. Aroma of citrus and spice. Good carbonation.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Bottle in Gabrovo, Bulgaria - bought from beermerchants. Pours lightly hazy, deep gold with a large, frothy white head. The aroma holds estery bubblegum, flowers, bread, touches of melon. The flavor is pretty well balanced if a tad bland, with lightly dried bread, orange peel, restrained Belgian yeast expression, cardamon, mild sun-kissed hay. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Dried bread to finish, some more citrus peel, muted yeast, lightly bitter hay, grass, well-chewed bubblegum. Decent overall.

Holmen1 (2018) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 5, 2014
Endelig en 0,75 flaske denne fine rbhd-kvelden på Fridtjofen: vakker åpningsfutt, flott champagneaktig skum (men med lenger varighet), grasiøs duft og smak av belgisk gjær og sitrongress. En nydelig sommerøl jeg fint kan drikke i store slurker. Thanks, Gunnar!

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma is fruity, with a yeasty hint. Perfumed and flowery, with a touch of pale malts. Sort of sweetish on the palate, and yet thin. There’s pale malts, fruityness and a faint yeasty touch too. Some bitterness towards the end. A pretty boring one, won’t miss it at all. 140301
