75cl Bottle, thanks Harmen! Clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of dry malts, light spicy, fruity esters, phenols. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, dry, sharp alcohol and fruit esters, light spicy bitter finish. Light-bodied, thin. OK beer.

AirForceHops (3526) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Draft @ Phoenixville location on 15 Oct 2012 got a 10 oz. pour. Pale, clear yellow color. Average carbonation without much head. Nose is a mild wheat, grain and light spice. Flavor fell right in line with the aromaís. Very thin body. I donít know, something about this just really didnít do it for me. Either Iím missing something or I wasnít in the mood for it. I would order the Grisette before thinking about this one. Not bad in anyway maybe I will give it another try at a later date.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Draft at phoenixville. Pours a clear gold with a light white head. Buttery taste. Lingering creamy texture. Seems a little too savory for a saison.

MaBeer1972 (1368) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 12, 2012
A medium cloudy orange-yellow brew. Big frothy white head out of the bottle. Peppery-yeasty-bread-fruit aromas. Flavor is on the light side, but very interesting. Some fruit, some pepper, some citrus. Gets better toward the bottom of the bottle. Good yeasty backbone. Nice hop balance. A very tasty saison.

A really lovely session ale. Balanced and flavorful but faintly bitter, and very drinkable. I guess that is what every session ale should be.
