(07.09.06) One pint 9.4 oz brown bottle from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. 6.4% ABV. Best before 12/26/06. Slight malt aroma. Poured hazy golden yellow with medium white head. Average carbonation. Medium bodied ale that starts dry with toasted malt flavor. Some sharpness in the mouth (carbonation?). Dry finish with light malt fade. An excellent dry, crisp beer.

Pours a yellowish gold, with a large creamy white head. Not quite opaque but still very cloudy. Head persists quite a while leaving slight traces of foam back on the sides of the glass. Original aroma was of a floral/spicy hop with just the tinge of skunk. As it warms, sugar sweetness seeps in and as it warms more, diacetyl mixes in for a nice but faint butterscotch aroma. Light caramel sweetness on the tongue, with some balancing bitterness, though not sure if it is from hops or carbonation. A bit of banana like esters. Finishes with a lingering malt. The butter in the nose is not present in the taste. Mouth feel is soft with a medium body. Carbonation is not prickly. I will be looking for this one in the future.

Nice clear orange-yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Slightly nutty malty aroma. Flowery with mild hops. Very dry with flowery malt. Bitter finish with some hops. Very clean and refreshing.

Bottle at Cafe Margot in Nashville, TN. Pours a hazy golden amber with a dissipating white head. Aroma of yeast and hay. Nice earthy mouthfeel. Flavor of honey, white pepper, grains, and clove. Yeasty and somewhat grassy finish. Solid example of the style. bockimstein (167) - New Madrid, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2010
11.2 oz bottle to tulip. Pours golden and hazy with nice thick white head. Saison and grass. Great palate, very smooth. Fantastic finish. Rivals any farmhouse style ale. A really wonderful beer. flyingzambonie (42) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Refreshing and crisp with slight herb and floral notes. Beautiful blonde color. A wonderful spring/summer beer.

DATE TASTED: January 9, 2016... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... OCCASION... pinewood derby cars, cut and awaiting sanding tomorrow... APPEARANCE: a central whirl of bubbles power a light amber body with moderate clarity; a snow-white two-finger head simmer to a cirrus island with an atoll surrounding it... AROMA: ginger, resin, and vanilla join with light dough, bubblegum, and damp yeasts... caramel and toffee are sweet... quite a panoply of scents to breathe in... PALATE: medium-bodied, mellow--flatter than the glass suggests--and slick... TASTE: apple and pear roll out, almost as a cider, before the caramel and toffee sweeten the deal... this glass offers the bubblegum and pepper more associated with a weizen, but the malt is heavy and holds the flavor profile’s roots down.... OVERALL: a strong, pleasant conveyance of 6.4% worth of ABV, with a fruity, malty flavor that begs for the next sip.... the sugary aftertaste suggests a dessertif...the late phenol might suggest a bigger hit than it delivers, but overall, an enjoyable experience...

750mL bottle, thanks to ryan. Pours a pale hazy yellow. Aroma has herbs, citrus and yeast. Taste is nice and dry, with lots of yeast and a gentle bitter hop finish. Nice beer.
