DuffMan (8940) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle, shared with Mafair. Medium golden, moderately hazy, need to be cautious as there is a lot of yeast sediment. Persistent lovely white head. Cereal grains, bready yeast, light honey, light grassy notes, mild peppery notes, moderately dry finish. Light all around, but very pleasant.

thellgren (685) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2016
0.75 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Aroma has fruits. Visually it is golden, clear, bubbly and with a head. At first when the yeast is in the bottom of the bottle you’ll get dry and bitter ending. There might also be some taste of wheat. For an ABV of 2.9 this tastes more than just plain water. Later on when you get to the yeast there is also some grapefruit. Mixed with the yeast colour is dark golden and cloudy with a big head.

A muky, dark yellow beer, a head is medium and white. Aroma has strong sourness, fruitness, some chalk, personal. Taste has strong sourness, that’s dominating flavour, fruitness and herbs. The end is spicy, dry and sour. Low alcohol % cannot be noticed, medium bodied, strong carbonation. Interesting and sour saison. Personal and tasteful.

CaptainTilven (123) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAR 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2016 Golden hazy body with pink-brown reflections; fine bubbles; very fine foam. Aroma of agrums, honey, grass. Well hoppy, so bitterness is obvious from beginning to end; body is a medium; ideal as a starter. Remarkable owing to the very light alcohol degree. Should be successful in hot summers for whom who enjoys real beer...
