3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle. Hazy peach pour with a sizable mountainous head. Really nose classic saison presence of bread, lemon zest, grapefruit, and further really nice yeast presence. Same on the tongue, with a crisp and delightfully drinkable mouthfeel, dry and delicious. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at SIB. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick, white, frothy head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, hay, biscuit and grain. Flavour the same but also includes some barnyard funk. It leaves a dry mouth feel. Medium bodied. Not overly exciting, but still good.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 draft@Delirium Hoppy Loft: hazy light orange/yellow with a white head, very hoppy especially for the style, lots of sweet American/apricot hops, grapefruit, creamy peach, slight yeast, light pepper in the finish & some mildly tart apricots in here, minor funk, nice bitterness combined with the sweet fruitiness, slightly dry finish, great stuff ////// 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBWG 2012 – thx to Bart – much less impressive in bottle than on top, the delicious fruity hop explosion of the tap version is missed here, instead basic bitterness mixed saison yeast, ok

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really nice refreshing saison. Aroma is earthy/doughy with citrus. Taste is crisp and refreshing like mixing a good saison with a good pale ale. Nice hop character really makes this one stand out from the traditional farmhouse ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from bottle at SIB, pours cloudy golden yellow with a voluminous white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, lots of yeast, citrus, hay and cereal - very prominent wild funk. Flavour brings this funk out big time, with tons of yeast, hay and cereal. Multitude of depth to this saison. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen shared with ClubGonzo and RuneStumo. Pours a cloudy light golden yellow body with a small sidesticking bubbly white head. Aroma is fruit-yeasty with strawberries, melon, rose stem and some mild bubblegum. Softly carbonated and has a beautiful oily mouthfeeling. Flavors are light fruity-yeasty with leafs, melon, lemon without the sourness(meaning a kinda sweetish lemon), pepper and spices. Ends lightly dry and yeasty. Really nice saison and again solid stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught, KØ11. Slightly funky aroma, OK notes of light malts. Cloudy orange colour. Small stable white head. The flavour starts off with a good citrus note, milder than lemon, but more refreshing than orange. Good bitterness.
