Attractive & flavor packed! Pours a pretty cloudy gold w/ a retaining white head that leaves lacing. The Aroma is full of spice. The flavor is quite spicy w/ a fair amount of hop bitterness. Its bursting w/ flavor as any good Belgian should. Really nice beer!

Bottle, [email protected], Cph. Pours clear deep golden with a small, staying creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, light caramel, doughy, oranges, grass, light white pepper. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, doughy, light warming, oranges, esters, soft pepper, mild, lingering bitterness. Fine Saison.

Yeasty-lemony aroma emanating from a frothy pour that eventually revealed a straw-gold ale. Taste is peppery and dry with recessed bitterness. "Packaged 11-21-2016," so I enjoyed it from a 12-oz bottle 6 months later.

Clear, amber, medium head, high carbonation. Aroma: baked apples, peaches, spices. Light body, medium to high sweetness, low to medium bitterness. Nice balance between fruits and spices, very light, but quite sweet.

12floz bottle (BOD: 04.06.2016), paid the equivalent of $1.50 as part of a mix six (costs more normally as I’ve had it a few times before). A finger head off-white forms on the pour, then recedes to glisten the sides of my tulip glass. Hazy faded yellow body an earthy aroma of forest and subtle herb spices. This is the kind of saison that keeps me trying saisons, where the field is diverse and many can underwhelm or not fit my tastes. Coriander, tree bark, and black table peper are noted flavors as it hits my palate with a full, dry body. Splendid.

355ml bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Clear golden orangeLess than one-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant Pils malt, with strong citrus, strong wheaty tartness, pineapple, strong phenolic, light floral, sugar, strong cloves, spices, bread, strong Bel yeast and light grass.

Taste: Med to strong sweet Pils malt, with light wheaty tartness, light plums, dark fruits, phenolic, floral, sugar, strong spices, biscuits, strong Bel yeast, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Dry and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Good Pils maltyness in a slightly lean but solid background, with some light wheatyness but still smooth. Dark fruit esters, floral with strong sweetness. Well-hidden booze; spicy, Bel yeasty with good lemon to round. Quite decent but...

Hoppiness: Strong citrus, light floral and light grass in nose, same in taste but stronger; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent sweet-bitter malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Sweet, spicy and fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one seems to try too hard to belong: as Belgian Saison, it’s too sweet (although I like a sweet Saison, this one is overboard), Bel yeast being simple for a monotone citrus aroma and phenolic/spicyness is too strong. Not bad to try, but I rather stick with the real deals from Belgium and France.

Banksiz (138) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 27, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 Minerally nose with a touch of lemon. Some ripe fruit as it warms up and breathes. Medium body, spritzy with a mild bitterness. Slight harshness in the finish stops it from being one of the great saisons. At 7.9%, alcohol a bit too high for its depth of flavor. Nevertheless, it’s a good beer.

3.7
beer-yum (1836) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 8, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2017 Spicy floral aroma in a golden pour. Massive ’saison’ flavor profile is very tasty if a little in-your-face - albeit in a good way. Probably the most ’American’ saison I’ve had (maybe a little too strong for the style to my taste).
