COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper)

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2014
Very nice and refreshing. On tap at Schouskjelleren in March, 2014. Would be a good summer beer, dry and a bit chalky with subdued fruits. A good looking but somewhat empty saison. The Stepford Wives of beers.

ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a small white head. Nose is perhaps one of the most intensely "Belgian" aromatic profiles I’ve ever smelled; dense sugary-sweet bubble gum tones, clove, banana, wine gum and red berries all tangled into one, with some dry hay and straw-ish pale malts and tropical fruits in the back. Taste is banana, white bubble gum, sugar, passion fruit, mild pineapple and hints of dry grass and hay. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Very, very, very "Belgian" and quite nice in its own peculiar way, though nothing outstanding.

_angst_ (2757) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
Draught sample @ Monks American Bar courtesy if the staff. Thank you! Pours pale golden with a frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace while dissipating. Smell is heavy phenolic with crackers, biscuits, baked pears, lemon hard candy, buttered bread, hay and dry soil. Taste is tiny sweet and phenolic with buttered white bread, plums, baked pears, apple skins, pepper corns, dry soil, grapefruit rinds and hay. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, slightly round, soft and light to medium bodied. Finish is phenolic with buttered white bread, pears, apples, orange zest, dry soil, pepper corns and hay, too phenolic and too buttery I’m afraid,
