Golden color. Opens sweet and finishes dry. Aggressively hopped which ends up hiding a bit of the Belgian yeast. Still, really cool beer right here. Very tasty.

I liked this brew, it was citrusy, a tad zesty and even sweet at a certain point. I could drink this all day - which is exactly what I did. Thanks for bringing this one OmegaX!!!

Huge spicy perfumey lemon basil nose. Gold color with nice lace. Light bready malt. More lemon and spices. Soft mouthfeel. Basil finish. Lemon rind bitterness. Tastes good but a little fake.

Bought a case of this on sale for like $22 which was a steal of a deal. Poured a slightly hazy yellow with huge foamy white head. Aroma lemon yeasty. Flavor lots of sour lemon up front then biscuty middle. Found to be not a fan - too much citrus up front, bit too heavy of mouthfeel made it so I couldnít drink multiple as a session beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is fruits and funk with some piney, floral hops and perfumey spices.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little funky fruit and some spices (corriander, pepper) and a good sized piney floral bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, Iím not sure Iíd call it a saison. But I like it as a session beer with good bitterness and some funk.

Six pack from DeBucas. Pours out a light lemony color with a white frothy head. Light bubbly carbonation. Light citrus and yeasty aromas. Flavor is good. Very refreshing brew. Goes down easy. Clean, crisp finish. Highly under-rated.

jamestulloch (1263) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Hazy pale golden body with a thick white head. Lively carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of vine tomatoes, lemons, cardamom and bay leaf. Refreshing flavour of mint, cucumber, grass and pink grapefruit. Thin body with a watery texture. Sharp fizz. Crisp and delicious.

williamherbert (1261) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Hazy yellow with a big, puffy white head. Major carbonation. Aroma is orange and lemon. Belgian witbier funk/sweetness, with just a hint of that sour Saison stuff. Perfumey as hell. Also has an actual malt backbone. Grassy and yet with a touch of bready caramel malts. Iím really REALLY impressed with the scent. Taste is more of a Belgian golden ale, with more of a barley malt than a wheat malt. The taste is a little flatter than the aroma would suggest but still pleasant enough. Doesnít have the "punch" to it that the aroma has. Very bubbly and fizzy on the palate; prickly. This is a very summery citrus flavor, light enough for a hot day but not bereft of flavors.

Bottle. Golden color with small head. Nice, spicy aroma. Belgium spicy yeast, coriander, clove, light citrus fruit. Higher carbonation. Lemon notes in taste. Light bodied. Light hoppy finish. Refreshing and satisfying.

OmegaX (1226) - Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Six pack enjoyed with Chipalsa. Nose is light lemon, some spice, yeast, grass. Flavor is dry, with lemongrass, light citrus, a touch of spicy yeast, and some light bread. Good on a saturday night chillin.
