A good pacific saison, nothing incredible but with a nice hoppy exotic punch, sweet but balanced when young, good body and soft carbonation.

mutz (557) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2014
Lichttroebel blond, mooie plakkerige kraag die tot het einde blijft. Ruikt moutig, wat sinaasappel. Behoorlijk bittere smaak, wat gistig, bloemig.

Bottle from the brewery. I’m not sure I’d pick this for singel hop treatment. Blond with some spiciness, herbal finish.

Not a favorite during my Belgium visit. Clash between NZ hops and Belgian blond yeast perhaps. Love the cartoon though.

tom10101 (2665) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Clear golden with a medium fully lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is grainy and grassy with light spiciness, yeast and floral presence. Taste is also grainy with a some spiciness, grass, floral notes and malt. Moderate lingering bitterness and light alcohol warming. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel. A tad oily. Dry finish. Good Belgian Ale/IPA. A tad hot. Balance isn’t great, but it’s still quenching.

flip_soeperman (575) - NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Slightly watery complex beer with huge yeast character. Slight sourness. Motuecha not too obvious but good saison like brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours Golden brown like a wheat. Citrus aromas. Malty, citrus with a strong hoppy taste to finish. Nice carbonation so the taste doesn't linger making it a refreshing beer. 7.5/10 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
