On tap at Raku. Pours a clear golden yellow color with a medium white head. Peppery, lemon, biscuit. Smooth, sweet at times but earthy overall, mild citrus grows, lemon especially, yeasty. Nice. pictoman (1146) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
Poured from 330mL bottle (2016.5.28 - 2016.8.26). Cloudy yellow with minimal white head. Yeast, spicy, coriander, pepper. More of a Belgian wit than a Saison. Fairly well done. mrjez (630) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 12, 2016
Tap at Yellow Ape. A cloudy pale gold, creamy white head, nice lacing. Bright Belgian yeast and citrus aroma, fruity hop notes, light funk. Generous hopping, lemon, yeast esters, pepper, with a funky tangy trail off. Smooth and creamy on the palate, slight fizz and tingle, good body with a bitter second half. Well done.

Quite cloudy, dusty, medium dry and balanced, really good balances saison.

Bottle, 5.5%. Hazy straw with a white head that fades to a coat quickly. 3 Promising aroma is wheaty, fruity (grapes, under-ripe nectarines, green mango), funky and spicy (white pepper). A little bit of peachy bubblegum in the taste as well. It’s light bodied with lowish carbonation for a saison. Dry but not austerely so at the end. Really nice - quaffable with a little intrigue, a balance of fruit funk spice and bitterness.

Draught at Kamikaze. Floral/herbal hops, grape, bit of funk, pepper, earthy finish. Nicely done saison, a quite underrepresented style in Japan. willisread (3380) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2015
On tap at Ban K Sapporo Craft Beer Forrest summer 2014. Hazy yellow straw color with a small white head. Corriander, yeast, barnyard, peppercorn, and apricot all present on the nose. Great melding of aromas. Fruit flavors become more pronounced as it comes to room temperature. Slightly creamy mouthfeel with a bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing. Great stuff. jinroh (1691) - ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2014
Tap at Beerfes Tokyo. Nice, hazy white, foam is white too. Aroma is fresh but strong at the same time. Freshly cut grass, wet grass. Taste is slightly bitter, like eating some willow. It has also lightness and some green grass. Nice to drink this in summer. Nutty aftertaste. GenkiGonzo (1092) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 23, 2014
Draught at Bungalow. Cloudy pale straw, but a bit too pale, with light, white head. Spicy, yeasty and fruity aroma. Flavour has nice spiciness as well as the fruity and yeasty notes. Very refreshing on a sweltering summer evening. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2013
Tap at Keyaki. Pale yellow, small white head. Aroma is herbal, yeasty, Belgian, nice, bit earthy. Taste is strawberry, grainy, herbal, coriander, white pepper. Maybe not so wildly exciting, but pretty nice. Bit of mango and citrus towards end.
