Bottle Moderate to heavy bread, grain and hay for the malt, moderate to heavy hop note of grapefruit, light to moderate barnyard for the yeast, background note of honey and vinegar. Head is average size, frothy, slightly off-white, with fair lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts moderately to heavily acidic, then finishes faintly sweet and heavily bitter. palate is medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation with a tart and dry finish. A very tart, very acidic and a little wild Saison. Probably what old time Saison were like. DCLawyer (2846) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2015

Bottle 750ml @ Hotel room, The International Cozy Inn, New York, NYyngwie (17078) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2015
Pours hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, rye, citrus, floral and grass. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long slightly dry, yeasty, rye, floral and citrus finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is fizzy.
Bottle, 75cl. A big, off-white head forms over an unclear, dark orange-golden body. Nice lacings. The aroma is quite fruity, with a light yeasty, peppery touch. Some hay and grass. It’s full-bodied, quite dry and a tad too effervescent for my likings. Mostly fruity flavor too, lighlty peppety and with some peaches, hay and pine cones. Decent bitterness too, but a tad sweet. Lasting finish. A bit too yeasty and effervescent, but it’s a decent US-style saison anyway. 150626 Ratman197 (14964) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2015
