Flavour of citrus, yeast, herbs, apricot, dry hay, mild spices and mild grain. Very crisp with bitterness, dry palate. Very nice for a low abv brew.

Looks the same. Aroma very similar, more floral and perfumy, quite a bit of corriander seed. Taste perhaps a little more agressive, more on the sourer and grapefruity side. Again refreshing, but a little over-crisp with the fiziness. Nice wheaty finish, with again a fair grapefruity bitter bite and tingle that builds up nicely over time. Don’t mind rerating this one in a different dispense - it’s the same score keg and bottle, so respect to Nogne for consistency.
Hazy golden body, white head. Aroma is really hoppy, spicy and roughly yeasty. Flavour has rough yeast flavour, really bitter bite. Very harsh blonde, but good brew. mkel07 (6212) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2011
500ml bottle. Golden amber colour with a slight beige head. Aromas of peach and nectarine are refreshing while the flavour is dry and fruity. POurs well and looks good in the glass. Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 Bitter taste and finish. Citrus is very present in the taste. Unclear yellow colour, a small white head. (Bottle, as Blond) Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 On keg at Bacchus, Newcastle. Pours a cloudy blonde colour with a decent white head. Reminds me of a saision with lemon citrus and pepper characters. Aroma also of caramel, candy sugar, white pepper, hay and grass. Flavours of caramel, little sweet and smoky, mild tar quality and some grassy hops. A little thin with a foamy mouth-feel. Moderate carbonation and a mild CO2 prickle. Peppery lemon citrus linger.
Had this again in bottle. Pours a clear blonde colour. Beautiful floral aroma with big juicy pineapple and melon hops. Similar flavours and a nice chewy mouth-feel. Definite lemon and white pepper saison notes. Going to have to up my rating from (737316). Very nice! AshtonMcCobb (6774) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours a light golden/lemon colour with gentle bubbles and a thin layer of lace. The nose has lemon zest, with just a hint of something herby in the background. The taste has more zingy lemon, then sour lemon. The palate is very good but very one dimensional - it’s light to medium in body, tangy and medium textured in the middle with a sour finish. Overall, it’s a good example of a Belgian-style blonde but I’ve had a lot better.
