Taste: Full of taste, but very drinkable. Heavily-hopped and thirst-quenching - typical of saison-styled beers.

Hops: Challenger, Brewers Gold, Hallertau Mittelfrh, Styrian Golding

NZJoe (20) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 8, 2017
Poured from a small bottle. Large head which dissipates, leaving a small pillow on top. Dark golden, almost copper in coulour. Smells a bit yeasty and biscuity. Taste is hoppy, biscuity, little bit of spice not much sweetness or yeasty-ness for a saison, but still a touch of that Belgian yeast character. Quite bitter, thirst-quenching. A very good beer, not as complex as some others of its style but I would still get it again.

jesperhammer (4707) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2017
14-APR-2017, bottle @home, from Arne, Westmarket. Hazy orange with a huge, very lively, off-white head. Big bubbles, very noicy (!) but dies quickly. Aroma is yeast, spice, fruit, brett. Taste the same. More fruity though with fruity malt and orange peel, toast. Lively carbonation, dry. Nice.

Serapac (459) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy ocre, smaller white head. Aroma typical Belgian yeast, some banana, cloves. Pleasantly smooth, rather full bread-like mouthfeel.

alteregoo (1340) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Obfita, mydlana piana, szybko redukująca się do chmurki. Barwa złota, klarowna. W aromacie nuty ziołowe, przyprawowe, słodowo ciasteczkowe. W smaku fajna biszkoptowa podstawa słodowa, delikatna słodowa słodycz szybko kontrowana jest ziołami, sianem, dość wyraźną goryczką chmielową. Pijalność zwiększa średnie, grube wysycenie, ktre na szczęście nie jest wysokie jak w szampanie czy sporej ilości belgw...
Fajne piwo gaszące pragnienie, na plus solidna goryczka i ziołowy profil, może nieco zbyt słodowa podstawa, a do pełni szczęścia przydałoby się więcej nutek funky...

Diabobale (501) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - MAR 15, 2017
Color dorato carico quasi ambrato, molto velato, con cappello di schiuma bianca fine, non abbondante ma lungamente persistente. Al naso fiori darancio, miele dacacia e crosta di pane. In bocca ancora miele, buccia darancia e pepe. Amaro marcato dai toni erbacei. Corpo medio leggero con carbonazione spinta. Molto gradevole.

Zilverenmaan (150) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2017
Aroma and taste a combination of herbs and some fine, fruity hops. Taste rather delicate: not just an abundance of citrus or grapefruit but well-balanced and complex. Aftertaste medium bitter and lingering.

nihtila (3506) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden. Nose is herbal and hoppy bitter, citrus, yeast, faint fruits. Taste is fizzy, dryish, quite bitter, light spices and yeast. Dry and bitter saison. This may be typical traditional saison but it is not really what I enjoy.
