UPDATED: DEC 8, 2020 Don’t love this style of beer... strong and a bit sweet - advent calendar day 5 2020 Mjollnir (525) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2020 Bottle. Pours slightly hazy pale gold with a fluffy white head. Sweet yeasty and earthy aroma, some esters and zesty hops. Surprising bitterness, low sweetness and biscuits. Strong carbonation, light-medium body with a slightly weird bitter finish. Parmenion777 (1658) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2019 330ml bottle - Pours a hazy dirty straw colour with an average sized frothy near white head. Aroma is malty, ripe fruit and yeasty with some spicy hop notes. A moderately sweet taste, light grainy wheat and ripe fruit flavours (overripe bananas). Light acidity and bitterness with a dryish finish, quite good. craigeroo (60) - - OCT 25, 2019

UPDATED: APR 27, 2019 Strong aroma. Carrie doesn’t like this beer. Doesn’t think it’s very complex and doesn’t like the taste. I like it. Good interpretation of a Belgian beer. Fruity and figgy with a dry finish and long lasting flavour.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2019 Great take on the Belgian classic. One of the early great attempts by an Aussie brewery. goodkarma (104) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2019

Palate: lingering cider, medium palate weight BitterChalice25 (259) - - FEB 7, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2019 Pours hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of hay, barnyard and lemon. Not sure if I got an old or poorly handled bottle, but the taste was really unbalanced: boozy and lacking the classic saison funky flavour. craftyrocker (299) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2018
