September 2011. Bottle. Aromas of yeast, citrus, hay and vanilla. Cloudy yellow with a foamy white head. Banana, bread and lemon flavors. Awesome beer. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - APR 28, 2013
750ml bottle. Fresh, floral aroma, tropical, lightly citric and sweet, with notes of pineapple, orange, honey, lemon, powdered sugar, grassy tones, and some faintly doughy yeast. Cloudy medium golden in color, head is frothy and lasting, also some impressive lacing here. Flavor profile is fruity, lightly hoppy and gently sweet, with good interplay between the lightly sugary, honeyish, toasty malts, fresh, fruity hop character, tropical fruitiness and yeast spice, a decent bit of earthy bitterness showing up at the finish along with suggestions of melon and pear. Plenty of effervescence to be found, palate is semi-dry, body is medium. Refreshing, flavorful and enjoyable. McNeillR (2322) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2013
Intentful carbonation producing a pillowy but consistent grey/white head and dark yellow body. Upfront Yankee hop action, with a dusty yeast backdrop. Firm Belgian sweetness, gritty but smooth mouthfeel allows for a suppable strawy malt thread. Peppery linger drys things out as much as the carbonation, but with a continued syrupy sweetness.Pyrmir (6126) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Better than I remember off Keg that one time in Brewdog, I think.
Bottle, Marksman Tasting, Edinburgh
Bottle. Aroma of citrus, yeast, caramel, piney hops and some resin. Taste is mild and sweet with clear yeast notes, some oranges and caramel. Finish is sourish with malt residue. Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bright fruity flavors, sweetness, bold hoppiness, but all in wonderful balance. Great beer.

Flavor is dry malts, citrus and pine hops (light bitterness), grapefruit, pineapple, and light spice; dry finish with some subtle bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
750 mL bottle from Sun Devil Liquors in Phoenix AZ, served in a snifter. Pours hazy golden-amber with intense carbonation and an enormous, fluffy off-white head that remains and laces well. The nose has intense notes of pine and resin, along with grainy, caramelly malts and Belgian spice. The flavour is dry and slightly sweet throughout with caramel malts and grainy notes. It is balanced with a large amount of bitter, piney, citrusy hops, pepper and spice, coriander and farmhouse notes. The finish is long, moderately bitter and spicy, a continuation of the aroma and flavour. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and intense carbonation. Overall, this is a great brew, a blend of American hops and Belgian yeast notes. Saison meets IPA with a Belgian twist. 2012-03-15 Strykzone (7431) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Golden and haxy. A white layer. I smell a farmhouse or saison. Sweet fruit and yeast with pale malts. The flavor is the same with something like camomile. Sour and tart hops come later. This is a saison but with some nice twists.
