locarboy (129) - USA - MAY 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2011 cap and cork 750ml bottle from Binny’s. Copper color with white, ample head. A bit cloudy - I drank it as soon as I got it home. Acidic, spicy flavor with some hints of wood. Tasted like a wine cellar smells. I thought the hop bitterness was just right for the style. The yeast was a bit on the barnyard side, but I like that in a farm house ale. Different in so many ways to DuPont. This one has character. May 2011 update. Recently I purchased two bottles of this saison about 3 weeks apart at Binny’s in Chicago. Unfortunately, both bottles were TOTALLY lacking in carbonation. I am letting my previous rating remain, although this is an almost inexcusable flaw for a brewery.

ForlornHope (505) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
Big bottle at home. Clear dark gold with a white head that shrinks away. Odd aroma, peppery, funky and with an odd note, like an old dishcloth. Not unpleasant, though. Sweet taste with a little dryness. Toffee malt flavours, almond and nettle hop flavours. An odd slightly lactic, woody aged note to a sticky finish. That said, not a bad beer and quite interesting - there is a lot going on here.

kraddel (7713) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2017
Pours unclear, darker blonde to light amber. Small white head that looks very fluffy and rather stable. Smell is very mild. bit funky malts. Taste is not super intense. has a sweet side, anis ( goddamn, didn’t see that coming... ) and some malts. Low carbo and OK mf.. Not my favorite at all, mainly because of the lack of fresh, crispyness and the presence of anis ( why, oh why ) OK beer nevertheless, and quality at least is spot on.

Banzale (272) - FRANCE - JAN 13, 2017
Reçu par la représentante de la brasserie. Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur orangé bien trouble . Mousse inexistante. Au nez : le houblon frais et un peu de fruit . En bouche : plutôt frais , note de fruit comme de l’abricot. Peu note d’amertume très discrète. Présente en fin de bouche type agrumes léger. Plutôt désaltérant . Équilibre bien respecté. Longueur plutôt moyenne.

Excalibur123 (475) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2016
Vierte amarillo anaranjado con pequeña cabeza de espuma blanca de ligera retención, aromas a manzana verde, uva blanca, naranja, levadura, especias y galleta; en boca entrada ligera, refrescante y especiada con ligero amargor, notas ligeramente ácidas, cuerpo medio ligero con carbónico medio, retrogusto ligeramente dulce y seco, agradable cerveza, fácil de beber y acorde a su estilo.

SylvainCFC (193) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2016
Robe orange, ambrée. Très trouble, brumeuse, avec nuages de bulles très fines. Très peu de mousse, blanche, mauvaise tenue. Nez très épicé de curaçao, orange, poivre et gingembre très perceptible. Bouche d’attaque plutôt neutre, douce avec une fine acidité citronnée. Les notes épicées se révèlent alors, avec la douceur de l’orange et du curaçao en avant-plan. Le gingembre et le poivre assèche la bouche. Touche claire de levure. Très peu d’amertume même en fin de bouche. Finale abrupte. Texture très aqueuse et peu carbonatée, peu de corps. Bière assez rafraîchissante malgré son biais sucré.

Icedwarf (1573) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016
Oranje bier zonder schuim. Smaak is licht zuur en licht fruitig met iets van citroen, abrikoos.
