0.33l bottle from Pivoteka za popen’t in Ljubljana. Starts with huge foamy and persistent head, which has nice spicy, floral aromas and similar taste with a strong bitter note. Colour is orange and cloudy, apparently an unfiltered beer. Complex taste. Fruity, malty and has a lot of yeast as well. Moderate carbonation, harmonic mouthfeel. Bitterness not strong, but must be there because this is not a sweet beer. Aftertaste is dry, moderately bittter. Extremely well composed beer.
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2018 Bottle at Van Hoek, Asten. Cloudy golden, orange, white foamy head. Mainly sweet malts, no nice grains or dryness, no funk. Thin bodied, lively carbonation. Beerwithwings (345) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2018 bottle at home. had this one for awhile now. this was not what i expecting very different to want ive had before in this style having said that ive not had a Belgian saison before. this pours a murky colour and definitely has a slight tang to it. the head doesnt stay the distance. this goes great with food Erzengel (9891) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2018
75cl. The beer starts fresh and floral. Funky with malty bitterness. Sessionable with a fresh floral back, light in body with a nice dry grainy aftertaste. Funk is there, very dry in body, round and sessionble. theprof (1455) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2018
Bottle. Aroma has herbs, dough, banana, so the hops and the yeast have beaten the malt into submission. My glass was a clear if fizzy golden colour and had briefly possessed a bubbly foam top that sped back to the farm. I await a rich nuance as promised by their marketing people. But as it stands, it is good, without being great. The taste is light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, and maybe even a hint of umami somewhere. So I will take that as nuance. The palate is medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, and all important long finish, that is like white noise in the immersion tank. If this is what you look for in a saison, then seize it. vcsa (83) - - DEC 28, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 Mousse abondante. S'estompe doucement. Nez sur les agrumes, l'abricot, les céréales. Bouche bien équilibrée avec, pour moi, des saveurs d'abricots confits qui se détachent avec bonheur. Amertume bien équilibrée. Bilan très agréable.

Pours a hazy golden colour with thick white head and a high level of carbonation. Aromas are a combination of spice, fruit, bread, hops and some hay....very complex. Taste is rich and complex with fruity malt sweetnesss, spice, hop bitterness, a bready malt character with quite a long dry tart finish. Really interesting beer, great to try something different.

Rich froth, pale golden blond, slightly hazy. Rich hops. Slightly sweet. Slight bitter aftertaste, but short. Very good balance. ardeo (630) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2017
75 cl. Blonde un peu trouble. Nez : "de saison" avec du floral : grains, herbes, épices ... Goûts : citron, herbes, malt, épices. Pas mal ! vinivini (3241) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 7, 2017
Bottle. Hazy light amber pour with good off-white head. Aroma: fruit, spicy yeast, hay, straw. Medium body. Medium dry taste. The maltiness is present still not leading. Yeast and fruit define the picture. Hoppy ending. Good.
