Zlotta (3409) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’. Clear, golden yellow with a white head. Fruity-grassy, slightly floral aroma of lemon, gooseberry, grass and pineapple. Slightly bitter, grassy-fruity taste of lemon, gooseberry, pineapple, grass and some corn, followed by a short, moderately bitter, grassy and a bit dry finish. Better than expected!

malvrich (326) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Single can apparently canned 12/23/15 so exactly 5 months old, into a stange. A: Attack of the 50 foot head! Busy carbonation feeding the head. Clear light gold color with good lacing but honestly if this shit wont lace, nothing will. S: Fresh crisp leafy apple scent. A little grain also. T: No fruit which is what I expected but dry musty flavor. A bit of under-ripe pear tartness at the back but no sweetness. Apple/pear is a bit more prominent as it warms. M: Very crisp and light with dry tart finish. O: I found this overly heady and not terribly tasty. Nice scent and feel not enough to save it.

chucklemation (1715) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Pours a hazy yellow with a pillowy white foam head. Aroma is herbal and earthy hops along with some sweet grain malts and a saison-like yeast aroma. Flavor is herbal and citrus, and the same yeast taste. Has a well-carbonated body with some bitterness. A lot better than the description indicates - I like it.

3.6
Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 17, 2016
On tap at Vermont Tap house. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a light transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a slim finger’s worth of quickly dissipating head. The smell had some sweet corn up front, a Belgian sweet sugary malt, some lemon pulp and some white pepper. Slight Belgian yeastiness (breadiness). The taste was mainly the same with a semi-dry sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation feels good. Some stickiness to the tongue, but nothing overbearing. Overall, saison, eh, maybe, hmmm...there’s some Belgian aspects going on, so I guess I can see it for the most part.
