3fourths (8029) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottles from Brasserie Thiriez and Racine’s in Cassel. Hazy straw, effervescent with a short white head.
One bottle was in decent shape, the other was downright foul. From the brewery it was floral, citric, lightly phenolic but overall quiet in the nose. Off-dry, light-bodied, effervescent and quenching, has good roundness at low strength. (3.4/5). The bottle from Racine’s was heavily oxidized, showed strong DMS cooked corn signature, and it smelled and tasted of autolyzed yeast, the holy trinity. No surprise it does not hold up well in warm storage continuous fermentation. (2/5)

happyhoppy (8) - FRANCE - SEP 1, 2014 does not count
33cl bottle from saveur-biere.com A hazy mild amber body with a frothy white head. On the nose, intense aromas of fresh grass & mild herbs. The smell really makes you feel like you are in a country side farm. On the mouth, it begins with a citrus note, pines, mild herbs..then comes the hops(French & Belgian) providing peaches and hints of black pepper leading to a dry bitter finish. An excellent example of an old school French table beer. Also its highly refreshing.

Camons (5960) - Hasselager, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2014
Draught @ Brasserie Thiriez, Esquelbecq. Pours light hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of light malt, grain, yeast, hay, grassy hops, little spice, light citrus. Flavor is malt, grain, yeast, grassy, little citrus, light sour, light bitterness. Thin body, lively carbonation, dry light bitter finish. Nice for the ABV, really refreshing. 040814

wvhoran (239) - Tasmania, - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Hazy murky yellow, a thin dissipating white head. The aroma is mild fresh peppery, citrus. The flavour is acid fruity, tart grassy. Yeast. Solid bitterness. Weak fruits, like a green peach.

jmgreenuk (4341) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle at the De Molen second Tuesday tasting August 2014. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, veggie. Not much of note in the smell. The flavour light acid citrus with an earthy mineral light barnyard bitter palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Considering the ABV it was a decent beer, but a Saison is hardly a style that’s calling out for more alcohol.

kermis (5061) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle shared at the De Molen monthly tasting. Pours hazy golden with and off white head. Aroma of light funk, barnyard, citrus, yeast and a nice touch of baked bean yeast. Flavor is light sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle from Chez Alain Cave a Bieres, Rennes, Brittany, France. Cloudy yellow-white coloured that pours with a large foamy head. It has lemon, spicy fruit and wheat flavours followed by bitter grapefruit on the finish. Superb for a low ABV beer!

motelpogo (6698) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 20, 2014
bottle, thanks chris for sharing. pale golden with a faint haze and a lingering fluffy head; aroma of lemon flavoured moneral water with a trace of cheesy funk; nice balance between lemon cheesecake sweetness and a dry disappearing mouthfeel. classy stuff
