Big funk and cat piss nose. Cloudy yellow with sudsy white head, looks nice. Nice and dry with good hops. Sharp carbonation, but smooth and silky overall... quite a nice mouthfeel. This is nice.

Unclear golden with poor head. Nice spicy and hoppy aroma. At taste is very dry with spicy, citrus and herbal flavour.

Saison molto singolare per i sentori agrumati e di frutta esotica con un tenore alcolico alto x il genere. Di una beverinità eccelsa ti asciuga la bocca stupendamente e ti lascia un amaro persistente. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

jmgreenuk (4364) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2014
Tap at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head and some broken lace. The aroma is lemon citrus yeast. The flavour is acid light bitter with a dry light veggie citrus palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Needs more flavour IMO.

Bullit (4012) - Burgos, SPAIN - JAN 19, 2014
Tap @ Beer Temple. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Nose is light malty, bit peppery, juicy and yeasty. Flavour is yeasty, light malty, lemonade, fruity, slightly bitter. Fairly soft. Well drinkable.

Borresteijn (4686) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
On tap at Beer Temple. Hazy pale golden yellow colour, white head. Aroma of watery lemon, a bit soapy, whiff of passion fruit, light tart funk. Flavour is light-sweet, thin malts, lemon, hint of soap, watery bitter finish with a hint of tartness. Light-bodied. Refreshing.

TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Tap at Holy Grale, Louisville, KY: Misty pale straw. Voluminous lathery white foam. One-dimensional hop-derived aromas of kumquat, unripe peach, pepper, marmalade, and white peach. Fresh haylike whispers of pils malt underneath. Fluffy mouthfeel. Opens with prominent apricot purée and a melony slickness capped with mildly resinous hops. Malt is essentially nonexistent, and fails to withstand the very jammy new age hoppiness. Slippery floral oils abound, and the hop character is quite luscious at times, but overall the flavor is deficient in ripeness as it’s mildly lactic and akin to ripe peach and green banana. Pils malt is clean, but lacks somewhat in vitality and vigor. The body’s core is hollow due to the relative absence of malt. Muted pepper and phenols generate an understated snap, but the jammy tropical hoppiness dominates. Occasionally trends toward sugary, as a dab of overripe papaya contributes some misapplied sugary weight. Finishes predominantly lactic with fresh lemon and unripe peach notes swirled with faint astringency from the aggressive hop oils. A hopcentric, one-dimensional rendition that relies too much on heavy-handed hopping rather than yeast-pulled nuance. Its clean fermentation fails to make up for what it lacks in character. Middle-of-the-road.

Quite ordinary saison beer. It is nice grassy and spicey, but the Belgians do this better.
