Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
On tap at Rustico in Alexandria. Served in a stange. Pours a fairly-hazy golden-peach color with a thin, bubbly white head that feel somewhat quickly into a lasting thin collar atop the beer. The nose started with some light stone fruits beside some light grain and straw. As it warmed, there was a bit of light spice and mild tropical fruit. Along with the slight acidity, the fruits gave off a bit of a kiwi and pineapple impression. Flavor was even better with the acidity picking up and really carrying the flavors through. Beautiful fruit and strong along with a touch of backing pepper and yeasty spice. Body was light and crisp, really popping. It was incredibly difficult to put this one down. Ultra delicious and one of the best saisons that I’ve ever had.

Rask0lnikov (955) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2017
750ml bottle st One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Pours golden yellow colour. High white head which soon goes smaller but stays. Hints of sweet white grapes, norws of white wine, earthy notes, some spicy notes in the aroma. White grapes, notes of white wine, earthy notes, hints of grass or hay, citrussy notes in the taste. Really refreshing, complex finish. Notes of white wine in the aftertaste. One of the best saisons (or to be more precise the interpretation of the farmhouse) I ever had. Really enjoyable brew.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle. (Swing Top ) Cloudy yellow with a small head. Slightly sour with a bitter fruitiness. A bit extreme for me but still worth trying.

ciocanelu (1731) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 1, 2016
Slightly hazy dark golden color with beige head. Aroma has intense farmhouse notes like fermented fruits, wet hay and other rustic notes. Taste starts with a hint of fruit tartness but gets more balanced and fruity, slightly malty with farmhouse flavors throughout and finishes quite dry with a slight amount of bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. A really rustic, well made, elegant farmhouse ale.
