VDuquerroux (1894) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. @L’Estaminet, Pouançay, France. A golden pale yellow opaque beer ; light bubbly (small bubbles) ; big white foamy head ; good retention and lacing. Fruits (citrus, lemon), herbs, floral, biscuit. Light sweet, light to medium dry refreshing bitter. Light to medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, dry fruity bitter finish. Overall, a pleasant belgian saison ; nice herbal floral bitterness. I enjoyed the fruity hoppy flavor but it lacks of body to send me to heaven. Bov (13284) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2016

Arômes peu prononcés, masqués par une amertume légère et agréable. Un peu épaisse au palais KyotoLefty (10721) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi. Spicy, tart nose, grapefruit, lemon, some honey, yeasty spice. Deep gold with orange and a huge head. Crisp, hoppy flavor, bread, some biscuit and honey, grass, citrus, very bitter. Great. Reminds me of XX Bitter.
Icedwarf (1839) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
Donkergeel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en fruitig, licht zoet met iets van bessen. Helaas iets te waterig om een echt goede score te krijgen. Alengrin (5779) - BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Tasted in Ghent a few months ago but apparently forgot to enter it; as Pr?aris Blond, but apparently also marketed as a saison. Hazy golden beer under a creamy, off-white, lacing head; aroma of apple, grass, some peach, white bread; soft estery onset, smooth and quite crisp, gooseberry and peach fruitiness, soft bready pale malt sweetishness, lean body, medium dry finish with some herbal hop bitterishness. Very quaffable but rather unremarkable in view of the hundreds of similar beers populating this country. TBone (18328) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Bottle 330ml (from BBF) MMR (832) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2015
Slightly hazy golden color, good white head, lots of lace. Aroma has white pepper and grass, light peachy notes. Light to medium-bodied. Very watery front. Mango sauce, grass and late bitterness. Kind of refreshing but same time a bit lame 6% beer.
Very nice Blonde beer. Nice hoppy, yeasty and alcoholic aroma. I quite enjoyed it. MiP (15981) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle, 6%. Weak fruity and acidic aroma. Clear golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour has a note of burnt plastic to begin with. Underneath that unpleasant note is a decent maltiness. Finishes with an astringent but pleasant enough bitterness.
