Pours a pale gold color with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of yeast with a slight hint of ginger. Nice light mouth feel with lively carbonation. Some nutty and bread notes, with a yeasty finish. Clean and crisp. Great beer if youre looking for something light.

Bomber from Whole Foods, poured into tulip glass for a toast to my departed dad. Orange yellow with strong carbonation, yeasty nose, big white head. Full bodied with strong alcohol taste that tends to overpower other more subtle notes of orange peel and coriander. The finish is sweet malt.

willisread (2807) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Bottle from West Side. Pours a hazy gold with 2 fingers of pillowy foam that linger. Classic saison nose with light citrus, wheat and faint grass. Silky smooth body and mouthfeel. Lightly sweet, but with some peppery bitterness. Peppery finish with some light grassy hops. Way better than I expected.

PhillyCraft (6294) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
BB backlog, Bottle with Fantasy, pours a hazy orange color with medium 2 finger off white head. Heavy spices, orange skin, herbs, candy sugar, hops and sweet malt dominate the smell and taste. I definitely wouldnt call this a grisette these days. Way too boozy and sweet profile for that style

Clareeses (43) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Apricot aromas, hazy straw colored appearance. Heavily carbonated, light banana flavors, finishes light and crisp. Really easy to drink saison.

jc1762 (960) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 14, 2016
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 (86) - 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.

Leather and barnyard scents. Pours hazy gold with a big rocky head. Sour tastes of lacquer and wheat refreshing. Nice.
