Bottle, 1 pint 9 fl. oz. Home. A sparkling golden fizzy beer with a big white foamy head ; good retention. Herbs, vegetable, mushroom (not my thing...), alcohol, light pepper. Light to medium sweet, light dry bitter refreshing ; warming. Full body, thin silky texture, good carbonation, warming dry finish, light bitter. Overall, average herbal vegetable strong ale. davidezdonz (511) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAR 1, 2016
A 16.9 fl oz (500ml) bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 24114, meaning it was bottled on 29th August 2014. It was poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a cloudy golden colour with a 2 finger pillowy white head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing. Nice funky farmhouse aromas with some pineapple, sour apple, light honey, some citrus and pepper. Taste includes lemon juice, green apple, honey and pepper. Surprisingly a little on the sweet side. Dry, light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall, great colours and aromas although it was surprisingly on the sweet side for me. drjoeng (1325) - SINGAPORE - FEB 18, 2016
Poured out a dirty deep gold. 10ºSRM.
Nose has aromas of aceto and unripe plum tartness.
Mouthfeel is sudsy. Palate is surprisingly light. There is a brief sour which evaporates into a smoky sweet palate. Like a deeply roasted wheat malt or toasted wheat germ. Some hop bitterness.
Clean sweet finish. M_Sack (735) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Light straw, billowing white frothy head. Aromas of pineapple and other tropical fruit, sour Brett funk and hints of pepper. Bubblegum, pineapple, Brett and pepper flavours which are all dominated by alcohol. Perfect high carbonation and refreshing for a beer of such high ABV

Rating #1607 - 16.04.2015 - On tap at Sugarbowl. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of lace. Aroma is of brett, pineapple, pepper, citrus, soft fruits, esters, alcohol. Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, medium alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal notes, mild pepperiness, mild sourness from the yeast. Great "imperial" saison.

Robe blonde trouble, mousse peu abondante. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes fruitées, des agrumes, une pointe d’ananas et de houblon frais sur un fond de gingembre confit. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche, élégante, tout en finesse, fine acidité et note d’agrumes en finale. Tout ce que l’on attend d’une saison. Un bière de plaisir et de soif.

ON bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Hazy golden color, ok foam. Medium aroma intensity; funky, floral, citrus and light stable. Medium body & complexity. Good sourness- some bitterness. Enjoyable Trolleo (1610) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 8, 2016
Cloudy yellow color, minimal white head. Banana and yeast, strong sour notes, spices. Pretty sour taste, lots of yeast, some cloves, spices and sugar. Medium body, lively carbonation. A real saison. //bottle at Graz craft beer festival klm1 (1590) - Bled/SF, - JAN 7, 2016
Pours straw like golden color, haze, with stable white foamy head.
Visually high carbonation.
Aroma: champagne like aroma, with notes of grape, wine vinegar, hints of spicy and florals (saaz hops).
Flavor: moderate malt flavor, with noticable wheat malt (banana like esters), supported with spicy and floral notes of hops and peppers. Taste is firstly malty sweet, suddenly become tart, sour, with champagne like character, and with very dry, slightly bittersweet, sour, peppery finish. Dryness lingers long in aftertaste. Body is medium, texture is smooth, carbonation is high.
Alcohol warmth is surprisingly noticable and higher as I suspected.
