Bottle, at HaandFestival 2012. It pours an unclear, golden body and a small, white head. Sourish, citrusy nose with white sugar, grassy hops and some herbal notes. Bitter, citrusy flavor with some tropical fruits, peaches mostly, and a nice sweetness. Pleasant bitterness in the end. More or less full-bodied, semi-dry and nicely carbonated. A pleasant, tasteful and repeatable Belgian-style ale with a higher bitterness level than I’m used to from that part of the world. 120504 deanso (10071) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - AUG 27, 2012
Sample at delft beer tasting.
Ok white head. Hazy Orange pour. A little sour with a citrus bitter aftertaste. visionthing (5299) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2012
33cl bottle at Olympen, Oslo. Pours deep golden with a fluffy white head. Malty aroma with Belgian yeast, fruit and hops with a hint of citrus. Sweet and malty, but well balanced. Fruity and lightly hoppy finish with a nice bitterness. Very pleasant and a good Belgian ale. (2012-08-02) bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2012
33cl bottle. - Nose says fruity hops, body says bready Belgian malt&yeast galore, taste says saison with attitude: loads of resinous, soapy, citrus (orange) hops - and something off-ish in the foam (barnyard funk) to top off a challenging, if quite enjoyable brew. Glad I chilled this one more than usual on this hot day.

Thin dense blond head, over an unclear orangey-golden body. Soft, lightly toasted malt aroma. Orange fruity hop tones. Well-bodied with sparkling carbonation. Rounded fruity bitterness. Light wheaty malt character. Some yeast, and subtle pepper tones. A nice fruity and resinous hop bite in the ending.

750mL bottle at home, thanks to my friend Rachel for bringing this one back for me. Pours cloudy orange-tawny with a greenish cast, very thick and moderately long-lived head, spotty lacing. Nose is tart and very yeasty, with French bread, leather, dust, preserved lemons, sweat, and light funk, with dying hop notes. Flavours of spice, light soap, nice hop bitterness, very crisp, and a bit funky. Pleasant enough, if a bit unremarkable. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2012
Misty orange body with thin bubbly head. Bagels, funk, orange peel, sugary and a light hoppy base. Taste is only slightly disappointing but very Belgian and truthfully quite decent. Does have a fair amount of bitterness. Nice carbonation. A quite decent brew. (75cl bottle) Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle shared with Ann and Chris at Bitter Virtue, thanks!
Dark amber with no head. Quite well carbonated with definite brett presence an fairly bitter hopping. Worked well with mature cheddar. Beer5000 (6455) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2012
Sampled @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. A foggy orange golden body with a white head. Aroma is light malty with fruity yeast and white sugar. Flavor is sweet, but still refreshing, light malt, a hint of caramel, fruity yeast and some bitterness. Medium body. Quite nice, rather sweet but still making a refreshing balance.
