Bottle (backlog 2014). Almost clear, deep golden body with a nice, dense off-white head. Fruity aroma with hint of caramel, yeast and alcohol. Flavor is sweet, dry fruit, some caramel, moderate bitterness and Belgium yeast. Fine body and nice aftertaste with a hint of warming alcohol. Not very typical Saison but quite Belgium in flavors and I don’t have any style category to use in this case (Belgium ale?). Nice and a bit undefined, I like it. alkolord (616) - - OCT 29, 2016

Rating #1853 2015.08.10 Bottle from CBI. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of lace. Aroma is of farmhouse yeast, pepper, citrus, soft fruits Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal notes, mild pepperiness, mild sourness from the yeast. Great funky saison. pivnizub (10960) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2015
Buddel: Amber coloured, cloudy, big and very loose off-white head; sweet bready and caramelly nose; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied; slightly lingering dryish fruity-yeasty and bitter and piney and caramelly finish.

(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a huge off-white foamy head. Yeasty aroma with notes of ripe peaches, citrus, backed by slightly buttery, bready cara-malt. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter and slightly sour-tart flavour, medium to full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Fruit-accented, surprisingly moderate malty base with hints of caramel, tropic fruits and yeasty spice; a mildly but well-embedded hoppy bitterness joins in towards the finish. Likeable. 12.V.15 llucmaduell (319) - barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 20, 2015
The kind of beer style, the producers, I thought that beer would be overwhelming without cheating. On the other hand, De Molen has many beers in their catalog and mass experiments that do not lead to anything. I have not understood this beer a saison? Perhaps, but with some shortcomings very clear. tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2015
