(Bottle BB 17/04/10) Fruity, flowery and malty aroma. Yellow (slightly reddish) colour hazy (murky after sedimentation poured in) and small, white head with fair lacing. Fruity (lemon, orange), malty, yeasty (after sedimentation poured in) and slightly bitter flavour. Lively carbonated, slightly sticky and medium to full-bodied palate with a hint of alcohol. My first saison! 21/06/07

Off white rocky head stayed on a hazy golden body. Sweet citrus, yeast, fresh, earthy aroma. Medium bodied, highly carbonated on the palate & dry on the back. Very soft. Sweet fruity tastes with haribos, banana & yeast followed by bitter dry finish

Bottle. Brewed Mar 2016; BB Mar 2018; Drank July 2017 - Hazy yellow gold in colour. Small foamy white head. Good lacing. Good hop bitterness, grassy hops. Lemon and orange citrus fruity. Spicy; coriander. Yeasty; sedimented. Toasty malts, wheaty. Moderately bitter hoppy fruity spicy throughout. Quite dry. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Liked this. Nice hoppy saison. (2017-07)

AleRider78 (1358) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017
Pours a very thin layer of fizzy head and has a cloudy orange yellowy appearance. Weak lacing. Mild grains, toasty and nutty malt aromas. Very light earthy hops, barely noticeable, as well. Flavours of barley malts, wheats, tangerines and blood oranges. Some spices make an appearance in the finish. Medium bodied. faint carbonation. Slight prickly sensation and a slick warming mouthfeel. Odd combination of malts and hops. Pretty good but one bottle is sufficient.

A good refreshing saison. Crisp, light and refreshing. I enjoyed with a curry where it offered a better counterbalance than a lager would. A really nice beer and would drink again, especially in hot weather.

Blond colour with light haze and thin head. Aroma is fairly sweet and yeasty. Tastes fairly yeasty and dry. Light fruitiness. Some apricot.

Davros IX (383) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Bottle at home. There was a definite saison "bite" to the beer, but it was quite muted. It was a very pleasant beer, but I was expecting a bit more from it. Nice looking, good head, low carbonation, good flavour and a nice mouthfeel. Just a bit Meh!

sebsky (171) - ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2017
330 ml bottle @home. Bread aroma,golden/amber hazy colour. Clove/yeast taste. Dry and refreshing. Good.
