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)

Reminds me of Christmas, probably due to the spruce taste it has. Such a taste masked the slight bitterness and any other flavorings. Enjoyable nonetheless.

Mjp12 (1386) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
An almost wit beer aroma, with cloves and spice, and a light banana influence. Feels quite fizzy on the tongue, with a good spice finish

@ Scandic Malmö 16-8-11: Helt ok med balanserade, kryddiga toner och med en hyfsat sötma. Helt ok.

datrael (181) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Drożdżowe i chmielowe w smaku i zapachu, lekkie, gaszące pragnienie, bliżej temu do belgian ale niż do saisona. Dobre na ochłodę po ciężkiej pracy, sam w takich warunkach to piję. Solidne, przyjemne, lekkie piwko.

growler6 (123) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Doughy, peppery and provolone cheese. Traces of sweet and sour. Lacks fruitiness. OK but I would not go out of my way to find this ale.

Jurgos (231) - POLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Kolor jasny, złocisty. Piana jest ale szybko opada. Aromat fajny, przyprawowy typowy saison. Wysokie wysycenie. W smaku lekkie, pijalne. Lekka słodycz. Ogółem stylowy, ale nie porywa. w samku troche brakuję przypraw i teych wiejskich klimatów, mogłaby też byc wyższa goryczka.

[8068-20160130] 330mL bottle. Fruity lemon floral herbs aroma. Slightly hazy, pale yellow body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Citrus and lemony floral flavour. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5

Overheard: "I just fire the puck, there could be three guys in front of my stick."

mathieuc (3248) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2016
Pours a slightly unclesr golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of pepper and slight sweet bread. Taste is quite dry with a slight fruity edge, otherwise it is mostly some pepper and some floury cereals. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium-medium-high. It doesn’t feel watery, though, just light and easy to drink. Overall a good saison that will not revolutionize anything but I did enjoy it nicely.
