Bretteux (181) - Ste-Julie, Quebec, - APR 17, 2013
Le liquide est blond-balnc,son col est très mince ainsi que son anneau de mousse.Au nez des notes citronnés,des épices et poussiéreux.Au goût c’est aussi asséchant comme de la poussière,les épices (probablement la coriandre),le blé et le malt avec une certaine amertume.Pour conclure, une saison qui est somme toute bien faite.

Bottle from M&S. Pours slightly hazy golden. Nose is lemon tart, sweetish, grass, quite fruity. Tastes lime, grass, sweetish malty, fruity, dryish bitter slightly spicy yeasty finish. A bit on the sweeter side for saison but very nice.

lokis333 (454) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - MAR 12, 2017
Hazy gold color with frothy medium white foam. Aromas of dry dusty straw and hay, sweet grass, light touch of lemon and notes of light herbal hops. Palate, full body with smooth texture leaving smooth lasting herbal finish. Taste, sweet of hay and straw, quite matly with light notes of grassy hops with herbal notes that you would find in a nice lager along side some light lemona and honey notes. Overall, very nice rich yet refreshing and simple in its own way that makes it very enjoyable beer that does not ask too many questions.

jasonbenali (174) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Pours a very cloudy yellow with a thin white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is ripe banana, cloves, gooseberry and lemon, with bready malts. Taste is very sweet with some sour bitterness towards the long finish with a fizzy mouthfeel. Definitely improved as it warmed up and an enjoyable wheat saison.

Cimbasso (884) - - FEB 15, 2017
33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer. Cloudy yellow with a foaming white head. Slightly sour citrus aromas. The taste has peach, apricot, green apple, leather and barnyard notes. Quite tart flavours with notes of preserved lemons. An interesting sour bitterness. A refreshing and complex saison. Highly drinkable.

DraftDodger (1311) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2017
Copenhagen 30/1 2017. 50 cl bottle from Meny. The characteristic "Ø" in red on the label. Does not seem to be especially naked. Pours cloudy pale yellow with bubbly white head. Settles as thin creamy layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma has light sweetness with a little peach. But aroma is dominated by more sour fruit like gooseberry, citrus and lemon. Quite strong fizzy carbonation with slightly thick palate. Flavor is lightly sweet followed by strong tart citric sourness. Aftertaste is tart as well with some spices. Fine fresh Saison. Some would say that this should be enjoyed on a warm summer night. But what the hell. You need to remember summer whan your fighting your way through winter.

Evilkniamhel (787) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 10, 2017
From bottle. Pours hazy lemon/gold. Nose of biscuits, lemon tart, peaches, apricots, wheatgrass. Taste is oatcakes, ginger, more summer fruits, refreshing with a dry biscuity finish.

rauchbier (3856) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle, from Marks & Spencer. Hazy lemon gold, thin but sustained white head, good condition. Gentle tangy citrus in the nose with some earthy yeast notes and a hint of gunpowder and almond. Soft and yeasty in the mouth with a gentle lemon citrus note and a solid dry bitterness, there is a little funkiness and a suggestion of sweet malt. Finish is dry and yeasty with some barnyard notes and a little citrus but a dominant chalky bitterness lingers longest.

downender (8341) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle from M&S. Hazy gold in colour, with a decent, white, head. A yeasty beer with grainy malts, some stone fruits and a surprisingly boozy finish. Ok.
