Bottle from Partisan. It pours cloudy golden with a thick white head. The nose is full of tropical fruit...orange peach, apricot, as well as a touch of spice, yoghurt and hay. The taste is zesty orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, earth, straw, spice, touch of alcohol and decent bitterness with a dry, citric finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Delicious hopped-up saison. Full of vibrant citrus flavours. Yum. abemorsten (3652) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
Sampler at Haandøl 2013. Muddy yellow golden body with a fingerthick white head. Wonderful fresh citrus hops on the nose, especially the first minute or so. Combined with the spicy saison yeast aromas it is truly delightful. Medium to full bodied and carbonated wee heavy, the drink is aromatic and spicy with some glandular gooseberry notes present. madmitch76 (25383) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013

Very hazy pale gold beer, big white head. Palate is smooth and dry with fine carbonation. Thin malt and a little yeasty bitterness. Lovely vibrant Citra hops - sweetish orange, tangerine and pink grapefruit. Finishes light and a little dry with mild bitterness. Very well hopped Saison!
33cl bottle from the brewery. It pours a slightly hazy golden colour with 1 finger of white soapy head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, quite zesty with notes of peaches. Taste is similarly light bitter with some floral hops and grass, some yeasts and bread, little in the way of funk. Overall, extremely tasty and refreshing.

Bootle from Bambuni- 31st May 2013. You can smell the citra as soon as you pop the cap. Glowing golden colour with decent head retention. Full dry mouthfeel. Loads of sweet citrus flavours that give way to the yeast but not immediately (at first I thought this tasted like a pale ale). Strong hay elements in the backed. Wasn't convinced on first couple of mouthfuls but my mind very definitely changed as time went on. Another winner from Partizan.

On tap at Haand 2013. Pours hazy straw coloured with a big creamy white head. Aroma of strong citra hops, meaning citrus and even more citrus with a spicy element fom the yeast. Taste is crisp, yet light hopped, with a nice moderate dry bitterness. Lingering citrus end.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Smells grrrrreat. Thick, smooth haziness. Has a hard dryness to the end, like the taste in your throat after rinsing the vomit from your gob. But in a good way. Really fruity. Like a lot-ot-ot-ot. The_Bish (1123) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
Yup. One of Partizan’s best. Saisons they can do no problem at all. Add citra and I’m very happy. Blog. Do it. Inbreak (6415) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2013

Big fizzy longlasting head. Aroma is very fresh, lots of grapefruit, yeast, passion fruit, hay, dried fruits. Taste is fresh fruity, tropical fruits, grass, hay, wood, citrus peel. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Very refreshing.
On tap at Haand Festival. It serves an unclear, yellow-orange-golden body and a white, finger-thick head. The aroma has lots of citra hop impact, it’s really citrusy, almost hiding the malts. But the saison yeast is still present, adding some peppery notes and generic fruityness. There’s also a little touch of white sugar in this one. It’s full-bodied, dry and nicely carbonated, hiding the alcohol well. The flavor has a nice bitterness in addition to what’s found in the aroma, leading to a dry, lasting, bitter and citrusy end. A really wonderful saison, that’s for sure. 130525
