Bottle, shared with Parksy and others. Hazy golden with a very lively white head that collapses into a rocky foamy landscape while leaving gobs of lace. Lean crackery malts allow expressive yeast and hop notes to shine, lots of hay/dried grass, some earthy herbal notes that lean toward sage, with a floral, peppery finish. Very cool.

Sample from bottle at Birreria Volo. Head drops rather fast but retains as a nice layer until the end; body pale yellowish golden colour. Really nice citrus headstart, piquant and somewhat pungent grassy hoppy aroma with faint bubblegum notes and fresh summery fruits, citrus peel too. Wow. Tastes a bit less as wow but very good still, more dry and farmhousey than indicated in the aroma. Citric, indistinct ripe and fresh fruitiness. Refreshing, moderate fine carbonation and good body with the kind of dry finish that makes you beg for another sip. Awesome. To me, this is on par with DDC’s Saison du Parc.

Light bubblegum and some dusty resin like cleaning out your attic. Pours hazy golden with good head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Great balance. Light citrus. Easy drinking, great for hot summer day like this random one in February. Tap at Sovereign. mansquito (6338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2017
From my brother: pours golden with white head. Aroma is hay, hops, hints of flowers, hints of citrus. Taste is quite dry and fairly bitter. Sweetness very limited. Powerful bitter finish and moderate aftertaste. What a saison is about in my opinion. tderoeck (9480) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2017
