3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed from a 16.9oz bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a nice medium yellow color, with a moderate white head. The nose is initially a bit unpleasant, showing grainy notes mixed with an unnamed aroma. However, as the beer warms, pleasant notes of lemongrass, southern hemisphere spices, and citrus come through. The palate reveals a well-brewed and conceived saison; light spice and lemon up front, a slight malt character in the mid-palate, and a dry finish. Mouthfeel and carbonation are appropriate to style. Overall, a very enjoyable example that, perhaps as an apt indication of this enigmatic style, takes its time to reveal its true beauty.
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Kjøpt på Le 405 i Lyon. Lys tåkete gulfarge. Mye sødme og sitrussmaker. Ingen stor fan av saison, men denne var ikke så dårlig som summerøl. kmeats (16) - Hinckley, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
330ml bottle from M&S for £1. Hazy straw colour. Flat, no head. A light refreshing beer with grainy malts and citrus fruits without being acidic. Nice mellow summer ale. miniash (31) - - SEP 24, 2017
Bottle brought from M&S. Nice deep orange appearance with a white head. Very wheat and citrus nose. Tropical palate with a dry finish. One of the better Saisons I've had!

Bottle. Reduced to a Quid at M&S, Byfleet. A musty hay and citrus. Apple skin. A hazy amber. Thin bubbly white head. Light bitter tinged sour. Hazy acidic fruit. Marmalade. Light bodied. Thin but slick. Average carbonation. Low key finish. Restrained. Pleasant enough. Bijl (815) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2017
Goudgeel, troebel, voldoende koolzuur en witte schuimkraag.
Aroma: Moutig, tarwe, Citrus, fruit, banaan, peer. Meer zoetig dan het licht zure van een saison....ik vermoed de Belgische gist die het verschil maakt.
Smaak: In de smaak komt wel iets meer grassig en zuur naar voren maar toch ook weer iets zoet. Duidelijk zure van tarwe, fruitig van appel, peer en banaan en veel redelijke bitter met een scherp randje van spicy hops.
Onder medium body, voldoende prikkel van koolzuur, zacht en redelijk vol mondgevoel, afdronk is spicy, grassig en redelijk bitter.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2017 Very tasty beer with hoppy, almost floral notes. Goes down easy. Not like other saisons that I have tried; more similar to a smooth pale ale, I would say. I've not been diss appointed by this brewery yet. Sublime. Alusmamuts (2139) - LATVIA - AUG 22, 2017
Amber with medium white head. Nice aroma with yeast notes. Good hops bitterness medium old fruits sourness and just some sweetness on the background. Bitter and sour aftertaste. Simply nice! simontomlinson (591) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2017

(2017-07) AleRider78 (1456) - 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.
