Awesome beer! I tend to like other Belgian styles more; so buying this came after their Quad and Tripple. I love all three, but this one surprised me the most. This seems like a Tripple/Saison hybrid.

I have yet to be disappointed with one if boulevards beers and this one is is on tap at the local joint its going to be what I drink from now on Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours a straw-yellow with a white head. Aroma is yeast, bread, floral, faint spice and/or funk. I was really looking for a little more funk but didn't find it. Taste is sweet, yeast, banana, bread and floral. Finishes mostly dry and lingers a bit. It also had slightly more carbonation than I expected. Overall, it's a tasty brew and certainly one to try.

0.75 l bottle from Alko. Golden color. Firmly spicy aroma with clove, pepper and floral citrus peel. Strongly peppery and clovey taste with bright lemon, orange and tart fruitiness.

Nice fresh saisony aroma, crisp and uplifting. Almost wit-beer citrussy retronasals. Crisp palate. Biting noble hops in mouth and finish. wheaty sweet body comes over more over time. covers 8% well. Pale orange and hazy to cloudy depending on the pour. fits nicely in the belgian saison category, but a little more hopped than usual. Is a nice sipper.
750 ml bottle. BB 31/12/2013 from the Finnish importer. Courtesy of mjs.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
The aroma is Belgian style yeast, spices, mild berries, subtle hoppy bitterness and grainy maltiness.
The flavour is bitterish hops, Belgian yeast, mild spices, grainy malt and mild tartness. Quite true to Belgian Saison being an American Saison. Would have a glass again.

Bottle from Kroger. Orange yellow pour with fluff y white head. Floral aroma, Esther’s and yeast. Good Tide (4496) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2013
Bottle from supermarket. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, grass, floral hops, earthy notes, a bit of grapefruit and yeast. Nice mellow body. Dry bitter finish with citrus and grass. Very nice saison, but I was expecting more based on the reviews and comparing to actual belgian saisons.
