COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ícleansingí aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course letís not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

Scipio (754) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours a bright yellow with a huge and bubbly white head. Aroma has banana, belgian yeast, spices, peach, and grass. It has a Belgian impression. The taste is very dry and slightly sour. Still has a Belgian appeal here. The aftertaste is banana with plenty of spicy notes. The mouthful is very much like champagne, being bubbly, dry, and crisp. Carbonation is very fizzy. God stuff.

Tap. Cloudy orange-yellow . Thin white head. Floral notes dominate the aroma. Herbal. Very dry with a bit of rosemary, herb and flowers. Lots of bitter hops for a long finish. I love this beer.

Well first of all, the bottle says itís a farmhouse ale, so negative points for calling it something itís not. Otherwise, ití reeks of coriander and awful spices you find in your grandmotherís kitchen, and a little bit of french fry aroma. Itís got weird spicy, garden flavors and it all over the top and fake.

hackobock (2101) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2015
May 9, 2015. Bottle at home.
Clear golden with a medium sized white head. Aroma is herbal and earthy with sage, rosemary, pine, coriander, juniper and citrus on top of sweet floral honey. Taste is medium sweet floral with a light bitterness. Finish is light bitter with sage and rosemary, sweet floral honey notes. Light to medium bodied, average, small bubble carbonation.

Listigovers (438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Golden sparkling pour with white head. Strong funky aroma with sour notes. The flavour is unique, the sourness reminds of what youíd find in a cheese, there are earthy notes, the mouthfeel coats your tongue somewhat. Complex, some herbal flavours from the sage, very very nice.

SG111 (428) - New York, USA - APR 26, 2015
On tap at Mission Dolores. Slight hazy pale orange white creamy head. Aroma is lemon peel, clove, slight banana, bubblegum, traditional Belgian spices. Flavor is lemon, wheat, coriander, slight Christmas spices, nutmeg. Not bad.

Pleasant saison aroma which a more floral touch than the average saison. Very slightly citrusy too. Taste is more sweet than the saison Iím used to drink but still itís a quite dry and very crisp beer. Itís a very well realized beer with nice fruitiness, perfectly coupled with maltiness. Mouthfeel is just perfect, not watery at all and that works awesome with the style. Quite high carbonation too. Again, each sip reminds me how perfectly itís made. That could be a modern version of the Saison Dupont without any doubt.

GenkiGonzo (541) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with little head. Spicy lemongrass aroma. Spicy, fruity and light. A very fun flavour.

Mortlach (1130) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 30, 2015
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fŗ (Rome). Pours cloudy yellow with a little head. Aroma is spiced, with citrus notes, malt, more similar to a saison. Flavour is rich and complex, just a bit messy, malt, grain, fruits, yeasts. Mmedium body, good carbonation. Nice beer, it could be a world class if it was a little more refined.

willisread (610) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2015
355ml bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Slightly hazy golden color with a modest amount of foam that dissipates fairly quickly. Big fruit aromas up front: papaya, passion fruit, citrus along with hints of corriander, cinnamon and barnyard/brett. As it warms up the brett and barnyard flavors take over in a good way. Medium body with a slightly oily texture. Lively carbonation and a nice finish that is mostly bitter with a hint of sourness. Itís like a saison and witbier all wrapped up together.
