(Draught at BrewDog Kungsholmen, Stockholm) Hazy golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, spicy nose with citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, grass, hay and earthy hints of yeast. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit, pineapple, passion-fruit, hay, bread, peaches, hints of clove, spicy yeast and a generous citric, earthy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh, with lots of taste, still in excellent balance (as always). Very nice.
Bottle: Hazy with very thick head and lace. AirForceHops (7910) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 14, 2017
The aromas are fresh and spicy. Lots of clove. Palate is dry but there's lovely rich flavor while maintaining elegance.
This is a lovely beer. Modern but not over the top, so maintains it's heritage.
750 ml bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors. Nose is earthy notes, pepper and hay. Flavor is straw, honey, and soil. Grassy... Chewy yeast. Medium-bodied, with effervescent mouthfeel leading into a bone dry texture. Pretty good, completely different from the previous years that I remember. Overall, rather grassy. wlf (759) - DENMARK - DEC 8, 2017

375ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow colour. Medium white head. Funk, barnyard, fruity aspects, malty notes in the aroma. Slight notes of grape or orange peel too. Slightly earthy, bit fruity beginning. Maltiness in the middle. Quite dry, rather earthy finish. Grassy notes and some candy sugar in the aftertaste. Light bodied, very well balanced, crisp classical saison. The fruit character is not so present, but still a nice one. JefVerstraete (3673) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2017

Znakomite piwo, ładna barwa i piana, bardzo ładny aromat, w smaku dość kwaśne i gorzkie, wytrawne, ale nie zalegające i absolutnie nie ciężkie, a nawet dość orzeźwiające. Jak na saison dość goryczkowe, ale bardzo ciekawe, świetne piwo. Travlr (26268) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2017

Ici c'est la Belgique. La saison dry hopping est bonne, elle passe vraiment bien. La levure est belge et plutôt douce, la carbonatation assez présente, c'est fruité, l'ensemble est agréable et bien équilibré. BelgiskOlklub (1086) - Viby J, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2017
