superspak (4876) - Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2012
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2012 printed on the cork. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 3 finger fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to thick cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pepper, coriander, earth, clove, pear, wheat, grass, hay, bread, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance. Taste of big lemon, orange zest, pepper, clove, pear, wheat, bread, grass, hay, coriander, earth, herbal, floral, and big yeast spiciness. Light wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, wheat, pepper, clove, coriander, bread, earth, grass, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor complexity and balance; very crisp and fairly dry finish; no cloying flavors at all. Great malt flavor to spiciness balance as well. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy, chalky, and fairly prickly and crisp mouthfeel that is excellent. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely world class saision. Insane balance and complexity of flavors; extremely crisp and smooth to sip on. I am going to have to revisit the normal Saision Dupont soon to compare; this is apparently the organically brewed version of that. WOW.

ardeo (222) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2016
Bouteille de 75cl. Blonde claire à grosses bulles et forte carbonatation, grosse tête blanche. Nez sur les céréales, le malt, le fruit (agrumes, melon), le poivre, le houblon. Bouche généreuse, assez douce, légèrement sucrée et saveurs de fruit, malt, épices. Petite amertume à la dégustation et à la finale. Pas mal, la bio !

Acheter à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 25 cl. Couleur jaune /blonde légèrement trouble avec du dépôt ! Au nez , c’est les céréales , le malte le houblon ! Un peu de fruit. En bouche , la céréales est présente sans aucun doute , petit goût malté et arrière goût houblonné avec une note fruité . Super bien !

Sweet mellow savoury aroma. Clean, no eco acpects at all. Bright gold, small head. A simple citrussy saison, lovely and fresh and uplifting. Palate clean and crisp. So thirst quenching, and not showing signs of 7.5% at all. Classic saison.

Syfher (340) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle of 25cl, in a Gueuze glass; from the fridge. Really refreshing beer, with a strong taste of typical farm-ale. The color is orange/yellow, with a white, creamy-fuzzy head. Strong malt and little hop aroma. Go for it !

Cristobal37 (852) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 11, 2016
Yella lots of carbonation. Spicy yeast hops aroma. Hoppy with some fruity yeast, drying bitterness. Fantastic, flavorful, satisfying. Even better than the original Moinette which wasn’t as hoppy florally. A great surprise, delicious and complex.

ej (1256) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, golden body with a medium, dense white top. Floral aroma with wheat and fruity, belgian-yeast notes. Flavor is very well balanced. Light sweet, light pungent and with a very subtle bitterness. Light spiced with hints of clove, coriander and orange-peel. Quite nice this one. Medium body and avg to high co2 levels.

Turtles (2193) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2016
750ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden, long-lasting medium size white head, good lacing. Citrus fruity, peppery and soapy yeast, green apples and bread dough. Highly carbonated but soft and creamy mouthfeel. Yeasty bread dough up front in the taste, citrus hoppy, hay and gentle funk, peach, apple, cloves, spicy and herbal. Refreshing, tastes like a successful hybrid of a fruity saison and a Belgian Dubbel!
