KyotoLefty (9526) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2012
Light citrus hop nose. Cloudy gold color. Smooth, pine snd lemon flavor with clean and tasty malts. Not a deep or complex saison character but nice. Very drinkable. Hops work nicely.

[email protected], Copenhagen (Nøgne Ø Takeover 24/06/2015) - yellow pour with white head. Citrus fruity and grassy aroma and taste, lots of floral hoppy nuances going on, yeast, straw, lemon, hay, very nice hoppy Saison, prefer this to the other Saison. Lovely.

tderoeck (8420) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2014
22/XII/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - bottled: 9/IV/13 (2013-1167) Thanks to Bo for bringing the bottle to Belgium!

Note: tasted at about the same age as I tasted the Nøgne / Bridge Road (version brewed at Nøgne), which I thought was amazing.
Clear deep blond beer, big crackling white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel when opening the bottle, then orange flavoured effervescent vitamin tablets, spices, hint of coriander, orange peel, citrus fruits, bit dusty, some alcohol, bit of hay. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: dry spicy start, orange peel, pretty bitter, grassy, floral touch, fruity notes, little sourish, is it a touch of bretta in here? Aftertaste: citrus, little fruity, bitter hops, some alcohol, grassy, spices, coriander, orange peel, little bit of sweet malts, lemony, bitter ending. Maybe my expectations were pretty damn high because of the Nogne version, but I have to admit I was a bit disappointed, despite the fact that this is a solid beer.

drfabulous (6915) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2012
500 ml from Shenanigan’s Wine and Spirits. Big carbonation. Nice hoppy aroma (Citra?). Dry saison body. Lemon and some tart. This is a pretty interesting mix of IPA/saison. Would go well on a hot day. Very nice.
