I love it. Just the right amount of funk. I let it settle, so it poured only slightly cloudy straw yellow, could have a lot more sediment if you like. Strong lemon and yeasty bread dough aroma. Sweet and tart with lots of fruit- lemon, apricot, tart apple - and a little spice. Lots of yeast character, sour funk, tartness, and that spiciness. Fairly quick dry finish. I’d put it in the biere de garde category rather than saison.

355ml bottle. Cloudy, yellow-ish golden colour with small to average, fluffy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head.

Taste is slightly dry, minimally tart, yeasty, hoppy, residual fruity sweetness, hints of pear and banana, yeasty herbal and minimally peppery spiciness.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2017 Spicenose, eine klare heugelbe Optik und ein hefig bananiger WhiteWinePunch lassen Puristen aufhorchen, aber irgendwie sind alle Aromen und Flavours relativ überzogen ausdefiniert. Und als Ganzes wirkt das auch so, kräftig und nicht gerade filigran. Ich trinke Fassware im Strongbows Kiel. 4,50Euro/0,3.

Have had from the bottle and can, one of the few beers that Great Divide still bottles regularly. Great summer beer, refreshingly fruity with some bubblegummy banana lingering on your tongue after the sip is gone. Would and have bought again Turboninja (786) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2017

, Tampere, Finland. Like sour wheat. Banana, wheat and syrapy tart. Averagely balanced. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, simple with lots of taste. Quite scholbook american performer on European style.
Bottle, Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - wheat and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, light caramel and banana with light fruitiness and light herbal hoppyness, light yeast. Body is medium, malty - some wheat and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, light caramel and banana, light fruitiness and herbal hoppyness, light yeast. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish,light caramel and banana withlight fruitiness, light herbal hoppyness and yeast. More like hefe weizen than saison. Too much caramel and notes of banana (wheat). larsga (7567) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2017
Big white head doesn’t last. Slightly hazy yellow body with light carbonation. Pungent spicy orangey aroma with sugary toffee notes. Peppery, bready things going on. Certainly complex. Sweet spicy fruity sugary taste with bread herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry mealy spicy fruity aftertaste with grassy herbal notes. Interesting, for sure. Highly drinkable and complex. Why they think the Belgians used rice in their farmhouse ale I can’t tell. This is about as farmhouse as the space shuttle, but whatever, at least it’s a good beer.

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki
Pours cloudy light yellow/golden with a small white soapy head. Leaves a soapy spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malts, crisp tropical fruits (pineapple and citrus), hops and spicy yeastiness. Taste is very sweet overall, balanced well by hops and alcohol. Sweet malts, pineapple, citrus, caramel, yeast and a hint of bubblegum. Medium to full bodied, very intense creamy mouthfeel, delicate carbonation and subtle hoppy finish. An impressive tribute to belge style saisons.
