Bottle, pours hazy yellow, 1-finger white head, solid lacing, if not a bit ropey. Nose is wheat, florals, cream, soft stone fruit, coriander, delicate and pretty nose. Flavours are assertively spicy and dry, really bracing in the mouth. Lightly soapy and peppery. A mighty fine Saison. GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAR 18, 2012

330 ml "mini" Champagne bottle fresh sample bottled a month ago. Pours a hazed orange-gold color with a delicate frothy 2 finger cap that lasts and laces my Saison goblet. Natural bottle conditioned carbonation - sparkling small bubbles. Aroma is bright but elegantly complex - spices, floral, herbaceous, honey, cereals, herbs - wonderful nose to this ale. Light bright dry spicey-spritzy character but substantial malt back bone. Peppery mouth feel. Flavor follows aroma with a decent dose of malts in front balanced off with spices and sharp hop bite...bit of complexity mid palate with calmomile, ginger, earthy yeast funk - sharp clean dry finish with a hop bite at the end. Wow. One of the best Saisons I’ve tasted. Well put together with a mixture of grains and malts barley, rye, wheat, oats - complimentary spicing, and hopping. In Dupont’s class for sure. whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2012
Pours a hazy light orange with a large frothy white head with strong retention and great lacing which hugs the glass. minimal visible carbonation. Aroma of yeast, malt, medium hops, cloves, coriander, honey, and other indistinguishable spices. Flavour is sweet with a mildly dry finish. Mouthfeel is unique, very light and soft.Nice! Exceptional balance GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. Golden orange with a very slight haze and a small white head. Lovely aroma - sweet and fruity (apricot, yellow plum, grape), a bit spicy (most notably coriander & ginger, with a peppery background) and floral, and surprisingly fresh smelling considering that I’ve been sitting on it for a few months at least. Flavour is also very fresh and lively, with apricot and green grape sweetness, some drying ginger and pepper, a bit of yeast, and lingering chamomile and green tea in the finish. Wonderful stuff - I may have to go grab a few more bottles while it’s still around.

Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with copper hues, a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is black walnut, oak, vinous, light lactic grapes, biscuit and wheat malt, earthy and barnyard yeast notes and apricot esters. Flavor is light lactic grapes, vinous, oak, earthy spices, light malt, hops, and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. corpsuckle (101) - Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2014
This surprisingly delicious brew is like a little taste of springtime. Just a little sweetness as it touches the lips, then dances in light fruits and spices across the tongue. Grab a bottle when you can find it! g_georgiou (565) - CYPRUS - FEB 5, 2014
Hazy golden body with a white head. Fruity, mostly citrus, flowers, some yeast, bread, really smells like spring. Taste is refreshing, with some spice notes. Sweet mostly. Very refreshing beer. I would definitely want to have this again during a warm summer day. 77ships (9632) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
Sampled draft @ Borefts 2014. Thank you! Orange, creamy white head. S & T are muted because this way too cold. Hay, citrus, light hop, apples, barnyard,… Light. Good mgajdaczewa (2094) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 17, 2016
O kurde! W aromacie gruszka z cynamonem! Do tego trochę zbożowości, może i jednowymiarowy ale absolutnie genialny! W smaku dokładnie to samo, gruszka w cynamonie, ewentualnie jabłko, lekka, "witowa" pszenna zbożowość, zero kwaskowości, szampańskie, wytrawne, bardzo eleganckie. Najlepsze jest to, że w składzie nie ma cynamonu... Nawet po ponad tysiącu degustacji piwo wciąż potrafi zaskoczyć. O to chodzi!
