Bottle. Pours a hazy, dull golden color with a white head. The head leaves behind some thick lacing after a few sips. Herbal aromas, saison yeast, earthy -- smells lightly sweet. Taste is moderately to medium bitter with a light sweetness underneath. Grassy and herbal hops. Medium bodied; carbonation is on the soft side of average; dry, bitter finish.

GuideDogSaint (1345) - Xiamen, CHINA - JAN 20, 2017
330ml bottle from a shop in Xiamen. Pours hazy golden brown with a thin white head. Aroma of bread, hops and malt. Sweet finish with a hint of bitterness. Seems more like a pale ale than a saison.

Sample at Borefts 2016. Poured a clear straw colour with a round white head. The aroma is mineral, yeast, citrus. The flavour is acid citrus with a yeasty bitter acid mineral fruity hop palate and a bubbly mouthfeel. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

bottle at home for 2016 European secret Santa courtesy of V_Duquerroux, cheers Vincent!
burnished gold with fluffy white head. quite grainy, dusty, slight diacetyl on nose. full bodied, very underattenuated for a siaon unfortunately, some bitterness but overwhelmed by caramel sweetness, could charitably call it a biere de garde. Not a big fan Im afraid.

Bottle at home. Aroma is soft malt, peppery spicy yeast, grassy hops, floral garden notes, a tad herbal, hay. Flavour is light sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Very nice balance between yeast and hops, grassy and green herbal floral with lots of peppery yeasty notes. Good one.
