Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of omhper. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Fruity, yeasty spicy aroma - very typical Saison nose. Very, very fizzy - an almost violent carbonation. Sweet and fruity with a slight tartness. No hops. A very straight example of the style. 220312 Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 28, 2012

On tap at SBWF 2011. It poured an almost clear golden liquid with a creamy head. Fruity and yeasty smell. It made me think of a farm and when I asked it turned out it had been stored in a barn. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2011

Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is nectar, honey, quite earthy with some mild yeast and grassyness. Flavour is fruity, quite herbal, earthy and mildly sweetish malts as well. Rather mouthdrying. A bit more storing and this would probably become a really pleasant Saison.
UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 (Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 30 Sep 2011) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity, spicy nose with tropical fruit, mango, grass and spicy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of grass, tropical fruit and a slightly harsh, earthy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, slighty sweet and quite bitter. Quite complex and tasty. Nice one.
