I recommend caution, and a big thirsty towel, when opening this - the bottle I sampled fizzed like New Year’s champagne. Strong aroma is fruity, mainly apple with a little pear and a hint of orange, and quite yeasty. It pours a pretty clear golden amber with a very thick cream-white head. Crisp, fruity, sour flavor has notes of apple, grapefruit, malt and pear and a pinch of yeast. Smooth texture has not much fizz but good body.
Aus dem Growler vom LagerLager/Berlin (2017-04). Dieses Bier von der anderen Seite des Planeten ist ein typischen Saison mit einer für ein Saison doch deutlichen Hopfennote. Doch dies gibt den Bier ein tollen Charakter. Ein leckeres Bier. Werckmeister (3111) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAY 2, 2017

Very hazy and orange color. Smells like bad cheese rinds but certainly tastes better than the smell. Baffling, but probably better with food. dunklermessias (176) - Lüneburg, GERMANY - APR 21, 2017
On tap at Lager Lager Berlin. Comes with a hayz yellow color and a nice white head.. The nose is pine, sweet fruits like peach or apricot, some grapes and belgian yeast. The taste follows the nose, but the fruits are sweeter than expected. Some floral and some herbs and a nice hops. At the palate some citrus. Nice and dry bittersweet finish.

Slightly hazy yellow beer with nice frothy head on top which leaves beautiful lacing to the sides of the glass. Aroma has Belgian yeast, spice notes, sweet fruits too. Taste is kinda basic saison, yeast dominates, sweet fruits. Medium body and highish carbonation. Wanted more Nelson Sauvin. Saison is hard to make distinguishable.

Wilder Chinafooddryspiceman with Attitude. Es muffelt und schleckert aus allen Ecken. Der Trunk ist verheft, hocharomatisch und Sourdry. Hossa. Das erhoffte Feuerwerk zündet intensivst. Da bleibt kein Gemüselover auf der Strecke 😉 Staudensellerie&Co. lassen grüßen. Breitwandig matschig und so hart am Saison Limit. Es stinkt 😀. 0,33/4€. Buddel from BREWDOG Berlin.

Wonderful aromas bursting of pine, fresh fruit, bubblegum, spices and some funk. Pours the typical hazy yellow color with a little bit of lacing left behind. The flavors were not as pronounced the aromas but good nonetheless. There is decently strong bitterness at the end with a relatively low carbonation. This is one of the best Saisons I’ve had.

330 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Looks: Translucent golden honey colour with a layer of dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 2 miutes; Excellent sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and sweet malt, with strong peaches, white grapes, dew melons, honey, strong floral, sugar and strong Bel yeast.
Taste: Medium sweet Pils malt, with light yellow fruits, white grapes, floral, sugar, light funk, strong spices, light biscuits, strong Bel yeast, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass.
Body: Medium body. Slick and quite creamy palate.
Mouth Feel: Very good Pils maltyness in solid background, smooth and creamy. Good white grapes and flowery hops form NS. Medium sweetness with light funk and good spicyness. Strong Bel-yeasty with lemon to round. Very good!
Hoppiness: Strong peaches, white grapes, dew melons, honey and strong floral in nose. Yellow fruits, white grapes, floral, lemon, and grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent bitter-sweet malty finish.
After Taste: Quite dry. Fruity, spicy and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: Compares to Allendale’s Sauvin Saison, this one’s NS hops is not as in-yer-face but still has very impressive viney, fruity aroma and taste. Added rich maltyness, strong carbo, and slighty funky but good spicy Bel yeast, and you have a very hoppy, tasty and fulfilling Saison. Love it!
500ml bottle pours a golden color with a bit of head. Fruity Belgian yeast flavors. Nice hop balance. Refreshing.
