PotjeBier (3032) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2017
33 cl bottle @ home. Mostly clear deep golden color. Big white head with good retention and lacing. Aromas are sweetish malty/grainy, refreshing, somewhat herbal. Retronasal theres more herbs, light sweetness, light bitterness, some fruit. Flavor is above light bitter with light sweetness and spices. Medium bodied. Long finish, spicy and moderate bitter.

First of all, I appreciate what theyve done with the label (especially with the added stickers leading you to a website that discusses the scourge of sexism in the world of craft beer). It may be marketing, but its also an honest approach to a problem that few seem capable of discussing. Onto the beer: light golden colour. Aroma is juniper berries and lemongrass. Taste is, well, a malty gin and tonic, to be honest. Smooth texture.

Bijl (504) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2017
Oranjegeel, foamy schuimkraag... net niet wit, troebel met veel gist, voldoende koolzuur. Aroma: Citrus, saisongist, fruitig, jeneverbes, spicy en kruidig. Licht moutig en licht gehopt. Smaak: Grassig, hooi, iets wrang van jeneverbes , gember, spicy citroengras, citrus en bite van sinaasappelschil en citroenschil. Spicy roggemout en fruitige gist tonen. Voor 10 IBU toch redelijk bitter... zal van alle overige ingredinten zijn. Licht gehopt. Medium body, prikkelig mondgevoel met voldoende koolzuur. Afdronk is spicy fruitig en iets droog. Erg fris en lekker!

MonsterMagnet (1384) - NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2017
Bottle, pours hazy golden with a white head. Spicy aroma with juniper berries upfront, pepper, lemon grass, citrus. Taste is equally spicy, with lemon and ginger, quinine, orange, lemon grass and some biscuit notes. Fairly dry and definitely feels more bitter than 10 IBU, perhaps because of the juniper berries. Even though the spiciness is all over, it is done with some moderation. Its a well balanced, full flavoured, tasty saison with a twist. Very nice.

fkoolen (1132) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2017
UPDATED: APR 4, 2017 Bottle at home. Nicely cloudy straw colour, firm white creamy head. Floral juniper, citrus, orange zest, dry and grainy malty, medium spicy and light bitter: well balanced saison altogether. Good body, lively carbonation.

tricksta_p (4227) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle from Lekkerbier, Sint Nicolaasga. Aroma is spicy yeast, fruits, citrus, juniper berries, orange, herbal notes, mild floral, bready malt, lemongrass, touch of gin. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Body is medium. Surprisingly pleasant, thanks to the generous amount of orange and fairly balanced use of herbs, luckily I do not get a lot of ginger. Pretty good.

dambor (619) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2017
Pours yellow with beautiful head. Aroma: nice saison aroma of Belgian yeast, spices, a touch or orange (probably from then added peel). Taste: very refreshing, balanced, with the horse blanket taste not dominating, nice citrus profile. Very good.
