fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy golden color with large head, highly carbonated. Strange aroma, fruity, soapy, a bit spicy ( sweet spices, coriander, anise). Soft mouthfeel; it has a nice fruity touch, strong spices, but also some soap, wood, vegetables.
Messy.

aenima (249) - Askim, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Refreshing citrusy aroma. The flavour is citrus, bread and a little spicy. I would have expected more rye flavour. Very balanced but maybe a little plain and boring.

Jerm719 (105) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2014

Emeister84 (918) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Aromas of bubble gum, banana, floral and grassy hops. Hazy pale orange with a lasting bubbly, white head. Off-dry, spicy, farmy, very well balanced. Light-medium bodied, very refreshingly carbonated. With a little more malt prevalence than I’m used to in a saison, this beer has great drinkability, and an awesome balance between malt, hops, and wild yeast.

Tart apple aromas, bready, yeast. Omg so delicious, first sip is tart and juicy. Spicy, rye, dry, sharp, floral, very refreshing.
