Pours dark yellow with very excited white head. This beer has a piny, citrusy, peppery aroma. This beer tastes of pepper, spices, citrus, and yeast. Finishes dry with some hops and pepper. lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 Pours light orange to yellow with whitish head. Smell is minty, and lemony fresh, perhaps herbal as well. Taste is sharp, somewhat tart and a touch spiced as well. Some butteriness to the flavor at the same time and a honey sweetness to it. Faintly hopped as well, but sweetness prevails still a bit from this. ekstedt (6780) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2008
Draught at Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium. Hazy dark golden with a creamy rich white head. Fruity aroma with apricots and peaches, along with floral and herbal notes, and some leather notes. Medium bodied and very smooth. Very well balanced. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2008
8th Rating from 3rd Annual Woodshop tasting in Temple City, CA. 3/1/08. One hell of a day put on by Cquiroga, thanks for a killer day Chris. Also spent the day there with bikesanbeer, my girlfriend Cyn, wetherel, JohnC, DenverLogan, dirty_martini, jasparg, DrBil, IPAFiend, awaisanen and many others, this was one crazy day. 2004 Vintage bottle, and it has aged very well. Pours gold and yellow with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and nutty. Taste is sweet yeasty and damn nice. jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
sampled at the Kulminator on tap: Floral and earthy aroma reminiscent of brett spring forth from this beautifully cloudy beer. It poured with 2 fingers of head which laced beautifully down the side of the glass. Flavor is of a summer afternoon. Earthy hops, floral notes, cereal malt, all balance out with harmony. Mouth feel is light and bubbly, really complements the flavors and the feelings of a summer day.

~3-4 year old bottle. Cloudy light orange body with lots of yeast particulate and a large white head and that fades to a wispy cover. Sweet and fruity nose with fresh herbs, flowers, pepper, apricot and orange. Lightly sweet taste with cotton candy, lavender, pepper and peach. Medium body is very soft with moderate, gentle carbonation. Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - FEB 23, 2008
750 ml bottle. An unclear golden beer with a big, persistent white foam that leaves laces on the glass. The aroma is peppery, citric, with a light note of alcohol. The flavour is quite powerful, spicy (pepper, coriander), fruity (lemon), with some alcohol, that is not disturbing but warming. Quite sweet flavours with a decent bitterness. medium to full body, lively carbonation, quite long finish with light to medium bitterness. A much more than average beer, but I prefer their regular Saison, more funky, funny and bitter. However a good winter and strong Saison. jwardell (23) - Newton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2008
On tap. Excellent head, nice dark blond color. A light taste that did an amazing job masking its high alcohol content. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2008
750, corked and baled. Crystal clear dark gold with a towering platinum blonde head. Acres of fuzzy lace. Medium body, soft carb. Beautifully presented. Sweet grass, floral notes, caramel, and general goodness on the mid-palate. Long slightly sugary finish. Compared to the aged Moinette Blonde I just cracked, this is a bit of a piker, but I bet it’s lovely in time. I’m hip to pretty much everything at the top of Dupont’s line, though--these guys aren’t playin’ around. BeerandBlues2 (13321) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 19, 2008
