UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 Bottle from Total Wine.
Murky yellow pour, shape-holding eggwhite head. Extremely spicy, pungent aroma. A beer with a ton of character. Full and thick mouthfeel. Massive, massive flavors. Powerful spicy esters overwhelm even the strong new-school Aussie hops. Maybe not my favorite type of saison, but so far from ordinary that I can’t help but enjoy. A lot.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brewed 09.02.15. Hazy orange color with huge white head. Aroma is lime, lemongrass, exotic fruits (more towards physalis, starfruit, gooseberries and the likes, not mango & passion fruit), peppery yeasts. Taste goes back and forth between a strong peppery yeast character with that Belgian funk and new world hops with exotic fruits as described in the aroma, also a bit earthy and some hints of a caramel maltiness (and of course wheat) shines through. Dry peppery finish, also a bit bitter. Complex and refreshing at the same time, despite the comparably high ABV for a Saison. Medium carbonation. This is beautiful. The bottle overflowed with a living foam that built up slowly and came out of the neck after I poured half of it. Something magic has happened with this bottle :P I am in love and I while I usually expect good things from the involved breweries, this exceeded my expectations by a lot.
Pairing this with some spiced sausage and flavoursome cheese lets the hops shine through more. The recommendation works out.

Aromas frescos de lúpulo cítrico y terroso con el olor ácido de lambic
Buen aspecto, un poco turbia y correcta carbónatacion
En boca refrescante y ácida, bien balanceada con el amargor. Final ácido y seco

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow color with fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty with some herbs and lemongrass. Taste starts nice with yeast and some floral flavors. Finish is a bit astringent, bitter and slightly boozy. Not bad but it has some flaws.

Golden with a thick white head. Spicy, yeasty, hoppy, pineapple. Medium sweet, lightly soir, rather dry and bitter finish. Average carbonation, rather full bodied. Good but heavy saison. Not really for thirst.
