Alexus (242) - Stavanger, - JAN 30, 2013
Shared bottle at Ngne , Grimstad. Pours murky golden with a nice white head, typical for a saison. Aromas and flavor of spices, fruits and belgian funk. Full body. Im not the greatest fan of so high alcohol levels in a saison, but the alcohol is well masked in this one.

A disappointment. For a farmhouse ale, it is over-filtered to the point of being sterile. It has many nice aspects, the citrusy aromatics, the tasteful hopping, the balance of flavor - - but it is all weak - - a touch watery - - you strain for the flavors, you miss the lushness, the funk that a beer like this is all about. It is an antiseptic version of a farmhouse ale, and the slick production strips it of zest, punch, richness, and presence. This is a farmhouse ale for city slickers. In high rises.

kaserov (292) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 1, 2016
Color entre dorado y mbar, medianamente turbio debido a los restos de levadura, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin a tope. Aroma a levadura, pltano y algo de malta. Sabor frutal (no pillo qu hay de tropical), con gran presencia del pltano y la levadura. Ligersimo amargor final y carbonatacin muy presente en boca. No capto acidez alguna. Extraa Saison. Interesante pero no termina de convencerme.

fuzzcro (279) - Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Delicious aroma. Sunshine clear yellow with an abundant white head that lasts and laces to the last drink. I get a sweetness at the beginning that I find quite appealing. Its light with soft carbonation and I get absolutely no bitterness at all. This could be the best saison Ive had to date. I am quite taken with its sweetness and really every quality is impressive.

Wolfenkopf (193) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2016
The aroma is of citrus fruit and light malt. The beer is a foggy yellow and the head is thick, though it settles with time. The taste is malt with a strong citrus note that favors lemon. This is a pretty hearty saison. The palate is assaulted with carbonation that lingers for a while, but a oily presence is left behind. This is a more robust version of their petite saison. Not my style, but very well done.

krumbum (1024) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Great mix of Belgian spice and wet basement funk in the smell. Super hazy golden color active head calms to a lasting lair. Super big Belgian spice bold but balanced light banana, clove, nice slow dryness.
