Grows in the mouth. Dry finish. Suspect bacterial infection from the acidic presence. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2011
CPH BF 2011. Golden colour, small head. Aroma is sweet fruits, some mild soapy notes along with mild yeast, earth and herbs. Flavour is quite similar. Good attempt, but I felt this was a bit too clean and fruity to be really nice. Rasmus40 (20645) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2011

Bottle shared by a generous person on RBSG bus. Pours lemon gold with white head. Nose/taste of lemon zest, yeast, coriander, spice, orange peel and herbs de provence. pineypower (3327) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Much thanks to whoever brought this to RBSG. Pours out a slightly cloudy golden/straw color with a thin white head. Aroma is of light spices, some nice earthy notes, and some light bitterness. Taste is complex with a well carbonated body, notes of light herbs, some pepper, earth, light fruity yeast and some lingering bitterness on the finish, which is rather dry. Very solid and easy drinking saison. Top notch.

(bottle from ksurkin, thanks Ken!) Pours a very hazy straw-colored yellow with a large, foamy, white head that retains well. Aroma is very musty, damp, and earthy, with brighter peaks of lemon zest rising above the must and dampness. Some peppery and earthy sage as well along with an abundant floral note that I found rather appealing. Could be some peppermint lurking underneath as it kicks up from time to time. Very nice aroma here. The flavor is simple, but executed flawlessly. Flavor starts out with some base pale malt sweetness, but quickly escalates to a bready, earthy, and slightly spicy mid that is excellent. Little spikes of citrus sting the tastebuds during the mid, further accentuating the positives of this stage of the beer. The finish rounds out to be dry, crisp from the wheat, and lightly peppery as well. Mouthfeel is soft from bottle conditioning and is medium bodied. This beer just really hit on all cylinders and is absolutely perfect for the summer. Thanks again Ken! Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
