Borresteijn (4647) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
On tap at Beer Temple. Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, spicy, light funky, hint of lemon. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, bread, spice, tiny hint of funky tartness, lemon, firm dry bitter finish. Light-bodied. OK, sweet-bitter is a bit out of balance imho.

JulienHuxley (3020) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2014
On tap at BeerTemple. Quite pale, hazy yellow pour with creamy white head. Musty, yeasty aroma, very farmy, stone-milled flour, saison-y. Flavor is tart, bready, lemon rind, nice rustic character, grassy hoppy finish. Palate is dry, smooth, med carb. Very nice.

Arve_Christian (3053) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2014
On 35 cl bottel. Golden hazy color, sediments and good foam. Fruity and floral aromas, also nice yeast influence. Medium body & complexity. Well balanced with light initial sweetness, then some bitterness. Very enjoyable

jgb9348 (4716) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Cloudy golden coloured body with a nice layer of sediment, a zillion bubbles rising from the bottom very quickly, all with a nice microfoamed, five centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of yeast, bread, barnyard notes, funk, apricots, apples and a bit of unfinished grain. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a light grassy flavour, some malt and a lot of yeast - not too much else, perhaps some sweetness from fruit. Aftertaste shows a good complexity with the flavours around the yeast, but little else. Overall, a decent beer - about what you’d expect from Hof Ten Dormal with a nice grain finish - not great, but expected. I sampled this 37,5 cL split bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 19-July-2013 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 12-December-2013.

Grzesiek79 (3182) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Dobre choc mnie nie powalilo na kolana z zachwytu. Wystrzal i huk z szampanowej polowkowej butelki i gigantyczna piana ktora rosla w oczach, trzeba uwazac podczas nalewania. Kolor metny i to porzadnie z odcieniem cytryny. Posmak cytrynowo-zbozowy i nieco cieplej chlebowej nuty.

A: Murky Golden Straw Hue, Passes Little Light, White Head, Mild Lacing S: Funky, Lemons, Yeast, Grapefruit T: Yeasty, Lemons, Corriander M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Very Yeasty, Mildly Bitter, Mildly Funky Overall, this beer will not appeal to everyone but a very good saison with lots of pungent funkiness to it.
