Poured into a pilsner showing well filtered neon yellow with a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of bready malts and Belgian yeast influence. The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Strong alcohol bite immediately becomes quite apparent and very unwelcome for this style. Flavors of strong Belgian yeasty notes with a light sweetness throughout and a complete lack of malt backbone.

spechtacular (133) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Barwa ciemnego złota, piana wysoka, drobnopęcherzykowa, ciężka. Piwo mocno opalizujące. Bardzo intensywny aromat przypraw, pieprzu, goździkw, kwiatw, drożdży. W smaku rwnież intensywnie przyprawowy i drożdżowy, po ogrzaniu rwnież brzoskwiniowy. Odczucie nieco gryzące w język wynikające ze sporego nagazowania i mocnych nut pieprzowych. Bardzo pijalne.

A very pleasant aroma with a sparkling appearance, combine that with a great taste and very pleasing to the palate, and you have a highly drinkable and enjoyable beer.

PanMarek (354) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Spicy nose with a little mustiness, some grassy hops, a touch of caramel malt and yeast. Thick white, persistent foam with little lacing on the glass. Crisp on the tongue with active fizz and a sharp finish. Medium body with some soapiness. Pepper and yeast hit first with the hops and then malt finishing. Metallic / mineral touches and a a bite of alcohol in the end.

Too much effervescence. Decent flavor and palate but it's just too carbonated. If it had a stronger flavor maybe it would be good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really outstanding stuff. This and boulevard tank 7 are my two favorite saisons. Light and crisp but with a depth of flavor and a smooth long finish. No bitterness at all. Lovely.
