Robe orangé, et nez floral. En bouche les notes maltées laissent la place aux fruits puis à une amertume légère. Manque un peu de bulle toutefois. Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2016
Draught at Gollem in Antwerp. Thick, creamy, egg-white, lacing, stable head over a hazy peach blonde beer. Aroma of dried orange peel, mango, yoghurt, fermenting hay, peach, biscuit, cider, stale sweat, wet leather. Estery onset, gooseberry, peach and mango with a light umami accent, soft carbo, gentle lactic ’yoghurty’ and fermenting fruit tartness, fluffy bready and caramelly malt sweetishness underneath leading to a gently but aromatically hopped, floral finish in which the soft tartness also continues. Has sweet, sour and bitter in a consecutive order and all very gentle and well in balance with each other, but none of these flavours define it as either a saison or an IPA. Nevertheless a very pleasant beer. kraddel (8110) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2015
Tap at Gollem. Pours unclear blonde, small white head. Smell is bit bitter, taste is sharp, intensely bitter with a nice hoparoma. The beer than switches over to a more sweet, honey-like taste, over a weak saison-profile. Not a traditional saison, and for me not so great. Drinkable though, and interesting to see how they wanted to fade the borders between IPA and saison. Tide (3893) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2015

A bit sweet for a saison. Appearance is a smallish head and a dirty medium amber color. Aroma is honey yeast, apricots, malt. Flavor’s similar to nose, thankfully there’s some carbonation to cut the sweetness Some bittersweet in the finish.. Body is ok. Wish they would’ve put as much effort into the beer as they did the label. I’ll not get this again. RexTalionis (3750) - FINLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle. Darker golden in color with a whitish head. Grainyness with some yeasty spicyness and hints of orange peel in aroma.
Some floral notes too. Sweetish fruits with some citrus and peppery spicyness in taste. Refreshing. Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - OCT 4, 2015
75cl bottle, shared with friends. Served in tulip. Golden/orange colour with huge white head. Aroma is fruits, yeast and hops. Taste is the same with some banana notes added. Well balanced. Bitter aftertaste with some lemony sourness. Medium body, good carbonation. Nice beer, but the american touch is almost absent. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2015
