Bottle. A vey nice saison beer. Malt and herbs. Can drink it on bottle as well from draft. yalnikim (802) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2007
Bright gold with a creamy white head. Sweet malt on the nose, at first, then grassy herbal notes, followed by a spicy phenolic aspect. Fantastic balance in the mouth - strong herbal hop bitterness, surprisingly weighty malt profile and a slightly spicy yeast character. Very polished, very herbal. Not as funky or raw as I was expecting. Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 13, 2007
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy gold, with an aroma of grass, straw and yeast. The flavour is similar to a Belgian blonde, but with fruity overtones and a spiciness to it. The finish is bitter and the palate just right. A supremely drinkable Saison. carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2007
pours a cloudy yellow with huge head. aroma of spicey yeast and hint of tartness. taste is a bit spicey, has dry edge with long bitter finish. mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Split a bottle with my wife and really enjoyed it. The smell reminded me of Brugge right away. The flavor was not a strong as I expected, but was really smooth. It finishes long and dry. I would get this again.

Pours cloudy gold with a citric, yeasty and floral nose. Flavor starts moderately sweet with some citric acidity and a peppery note along with a moderate hop bitterness that stays through a long dry finish. Certainly a style to investigate further. Stew41 (2118) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 9, 2007
Really impressed with this. Huge sparkling whiter-than-white head contrasts nicely with glowing orange body. Small traces of sediment. Lively nose of fruit (banana), citrus, hops and warming spices. Palate weight is quite strong and probably plays above the 6.5%. Cloves, aniseed, liquered notes, quite thick and resiny. Definately traces of a Belgian blonde in flavour. Finishes strongly with some bitter hops and a whack of aniseed. Most enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2009 Fresh, lively, yeasty and hoppy. Dull gold with a faint haze. Nose invitingly estery with banana, juicy citrus and a slightly lambic edge of wood and vinegar. Zestily fruity with a tang of orange and robustly bitter hops. Possibly some wheat and a dusting of anise-like spice. A bit wit, a bit Lambic, a bit drily spicy blond. Tasty, quenching Saison. joenas (6) - redmond, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2007 does not count

330 ml bottle. Poured a clear pale gold with a massive, rocky head. Aroma of grass, herbs and lemon. Multiple flavours: spices, herbs, citrus, grain. Slightly sour on the tongue before a bitter, dry finish. World class.
