Aroma: Some sour notes, and melted butter!Hammy78 (975) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Appearance: A hazy straw colored beer. A white head with some lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Ok, here the butter really takes over, this can’t be good, well it was only part of a sample tray.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, a sticky and soft texture. A small body with a not dry finish.
Overall: If this is intentional it is not for me, and not a saison!

Bottle brought back from the source by my brother on a recent trip. Pours a true copper, lots of bubbles and a pile of pure white head. Dies down to a layer that clings to the glass walls as well. Has a fair amount of floating sediment. Smells fruity, hop-like and Belgian yeast. Tastes bitter, fruit, alcohol bite. Good stuff. After a few pulls the lacing really shows up. daniele (9573) - ITALY - NOV 26, 2012

Amber colour with a nice white head. Aroma of caramell, roast and fruit. Fruity taste with some hop bitterness in background, some sourness, some roasted caramell, apricot, fruit and spices. Nice.... RichTheVillan (8151) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012

Bottle. Dark amber with an unusually small head for a De Molen beer. Aroma is initially US-hops derived citrus and pine needles, after some moments it becomes more Belgian, with orange apricot and good dose of spiciness. Dry, well attenuated taste, quite flavourful. Fruity, spicy, very bitter, with velvety carbonation and a slightly peppery finish. While the alcohol warms the throat, the beer stays rather refreshing. A great saison!

Bottle at home. Pours bit hazy deep golden with a creamy off white head. The aroma is highly fruity with notes of fruity hops, yeast and caramel. The flavour is fruit, grass, light spices, yeast and caramel. The alcohol is light profound in the finish. pfriesen (113) - Richmond Hill, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Relatively dark pour with heavy white lace. Clover on the nose, pear in the body. Finish is sweet with a bit of herbal bitterness Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 4, 2012
