COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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

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

bockimstein (167) - New Madrid, Missouri, USA - DEC 16, 2011
On tap at the Avenue Pub. Hazy blond a medium white head. Citrus and some herbs. Sweet with a dry and bitter finish. Decent saison, but does not have the expected "kick.".

BlazerT (623) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Orange, medium hazy with medium, off-white head. Very good head retention and lacing. Aroma is medium fruity and yeasty with lightly citrus (orange) and spicy (pepper) character. Also coriander and barnyard. Moderate malty backbone with some hay and grainy notes. Semi-sweet to sweet flavor, partly bitter (orange peel-like), finish is dry and yeasty. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Nice and funky with lightly spicy character.

imdownthepub (13560) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottled, 330ml from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham, Gloucs. Hazy gold with white head. I have had this one for a while but it still tasted really quite fresh. There are grassy, hay like notes, oily hop notes, some bitterness, some floral notes. Slightly resinous later on. Decent.

Banzale (113) - FRANCE - OCT 23, 2016
Acheter à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur blonde progressive sur le cuivre ! Peu de mousse. Voir inexistante . Au nez, c’est houblonné et frais , fraîcheur type heureuse et résineux. En bouche, amertume douce et longue , accompagner d’herbes fraîche . Un petit goût de recine ? De pin ? La céréale donne une bonne note en bouche . Amertume super agréable et équilibrée. Top.

guzgorog (754) - FRANCE - SEP 8, 2016
Couleur ambrée/orangée, belle mousse blanche bulleuse et tenace. Nez équilibré entre le houblon herbeux et résineux, le levure avec des notes de baneton, et senteurs de céréales. L’attaque est plus franchemnt sur le houblon, amère, sèche, des notes d’herbe fraiche. Puis l’amertume s’estompant, elle laisse une petite place aux levures et au malt légèrement caramélisé. Pour la finale, on revient sur le houblon. La carbo est excellente, le corps léger tout comme l’alcool, la longueur magnifique. Superbe bière, tout en équilibre.
