bbertels (456) - NORWAY - NOV 19, 2016
Backlog. Draught at Druggists beer bar, Singapore. Quite nice aroma, some yeast, some citrus. Well-balanced taste at first sip but not really long-lasting and then slightly water. A mixed bag but overall OK.

douglas88 (8826) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2016
On tap at HOTD. Pours a clear yellow color with a large white head. A big citrus nose, toast, fresh oranges. The flavor is more of the same, lead by sweet citrus, biscuit dry malt, light sweetness. Very fresh and flavorful. Awesome.

hawthorne00 (3756) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle. Gold with a white head that fades. Aroma of mandarins, dough, lemon, grass, hay. Mainly citrus and dough though. Medium bodied.Fruity with apricots ans well as citrus and dough. Stronger bitterness than required for saison-like balance is also faintly metallic. Not bad, but theres a better slightly weaker and less bitter beer in here somewhere.

Dredd (863) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2016
Pour is gold straw with thin white head. Aroma is quite estery with some apple notes. Flavour is quite sweet with honey, pear and cinnamon hints. Longer finish than a typical saison.

olio (9860) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2015
33 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours hazy pale golden color with a small head. Floral and herbal aroma, some lemon notes, stuffy with yeast and some mild spices too. Flavor is lemony fruity, pleasantly so, spicy and yeasty, earthy and a bit stuffy. Decent.
