Bottle - Light Perfumy notes and wet grass. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Light grassy and peppery notes with a nice finish. Reminds me of what saisons are supposed to like. mcberko (18977) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
330mL bottle, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out floral notes, Belgian yeast, and light hay. Flavour is quite complex, with Belgian yeast, hay, and light floral notes. Quite a bit better than expected -- like a traditional saison should be. Solid stuff. ozzatoadisback (208) - ITALY - MAY 29, 2016
A bit darker than golden, quite hazy. Huge and frothy but not very stable head, some lacing. Aroma is fruity (melon, exotic fruits) and flowery with a hint of spiciness. Not very bright. Taste is a bit more vivid. Sweet entrypoint with exotic fruits, lemon and flowers, herbal freshness, again a bit of spiciness in the background. Slight earthy in the finish, which is dry with a touch of bitterness. Light and easy body with a good amount of carbonation, smooth but still pleasantly lively. Fairly good Hopverdju (1495) - BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2016
Toebel goudblond met wit schuim. Geur: Fris en fruitig, bitter, vlierbloesem en wat moutzoetig. Smaak: bitter, citrus. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitterig. Zomerse dorstlesser. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours a fairly hazy holden with a medium white head that leaves super nice lacing. Nose is of pink peppercorn, flowers and other kinds of pepper (green?). Taste is of slight dill, more pepper and completely dry. Moderately bitter. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderately high. Crackery cereals in the finish. Good rusticity. Overall a nice saison with just enough elderflowers so that they are noticeable but not too much where you’d get straight pickle juice.

(33 cl. EXP: 16/07/17) Des parfums de sureau, de poivre, de blé, de levure, de fruits jaunes acidulés et de campagne s’envolent vers mes narines. Mes papilles sont abordées par des malts, des fleurs, des aromates, des épices, du citron et beaucoup de levures. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps moyen-faible avec un bon apport des bulles et une texture en mousse. La finale est sèche avec ce mélange intéressant de levures, de sureau et de houblons. Une belle surprise! Je suis content d’avoir d’autres bouteilles dans la cave. kraddel (8890) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016

Dry and floral finish with a mild refreshing lemony touch. A simple yet effective and quenching cereal forward Saison. Quite dry. Good.
