Travlr (25558) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from Hopduvel. Cloudy golden yellow color, huge fluffy white head with nice retention and spiderweb lacing. Aroma of dusty grains, meadows, nectarine, qumquat. Taste is grass, scallions, earthy herbs, spice. Very nice.

hrabren (1345) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 20, 2017
On tap at Vrteška 2017, shared with Višnja 666. Dark amber, small off-white head. Wine, light vinegar, light dried fruit. Light tart, dry, puckering, alcohol is hidden. Medium body, moderate carbonation, moderate to lasting dry finish. Quite good.

pinkzambia (2051) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2017
Bottle from Fort Point Market - Boston: Murky yellow with an aroma of skunk, perfume and musk. Soapy Belgian flavor. Fairly thick body with a rubbery aftertaste.

4.2
JorgeLee (2168) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle, Malt Attacks. Light golden pour, billowing white foam. Superb expression of yeast here, delicate spicy and fruity esters. Crisp grainy body. Good bitterness, and a nice hint of citric fruit in the finish. A real delight to drink.

MatChar (79) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2017 Bottle. Appearance: almost clear blond with very thick foam remaining highly present, very fine and lively carbonation. Smell: nice saison yeast, low to no hops. Tastes: notes of lemon, slightly soapy, very subtle nutty notes from spelt, medium to high dryness with low sweetness, medium to high drinkability, awesome saison yeast aromas. Overall: while it might lack complexity, very pure and floral saison yeast aromas.

SylvainCFC (301) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2017
Robe blonde parfaitement limpide. Mousse blanche importante, assez aérée, très bonne tenue et aspect rocailleux en surface. Nez légèrement acide, épicé (légèrement poivré), céréales et houblonné (citronné). Bouche légère, très désaltérante grâce aux notes citronnée du houblonnée. Notes légèrement poivrées, base maltée sèche. Très légère acidité. Finale moyennement amère. Corpulence fine, carbonatation faible. Saison très sèche et rafraichissante, sur le grain, mais qui offre des arômes houblonnés très intéressants. L’Amarillo (citronné, épicé) est un choix excellent pour ce type de bière.

Zymurgeist2 (2319) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 29, 2017
From bottle to glass. Spice, orange and I get a bit of funk in there. Hazy honeycomb with billowing white head that is moon surface chunky. Flavor is slightly orange and hay, grass. Very enjoyable.

HogTownHarry (7062) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2017
August 8, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel. 750ml bottle. Hazy light gold, decent bubbly white frothy head. Lovely simple aroma - spicy not terrible sweet saison with some light pungent floral hop bitterness - taste follows - lots of citrus zest, even drier than the aroma - intensely floral. Dry, light, airy mouthfeel, finishes quickly with a dry lightly funky/floral aftertaste, almost a champagne-like linger.

3.5
artemb (1068) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUL 18, 2017
Light amber, hazy, strong fluffy white head. Aroma: spicy, zesty, fresh lemon. Almost dry with light sweetness. Flavour: light ripe fruits, wheat, spices (black pepper, some cloves). Good and very drinkable.

3.6
gyhallmanti (599) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2017
Tasting glass at uiltjebar. Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head which recedes to a thin layer on top. Aroma of citrus, ginger, yeast, flowers, caramel, slight resin, kaffir lime, honey, spices. Taste is light sweet, medium dry with a nice dry finish. Notes of grass, yeast, citrus, hay, malt, banana, spices. Texture is prickly, light bodied with moderate carbonation
