Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
750ml bottle. Hazy gold pour with tons of fluffy white head. Has a real skunkiness about the nose, like it might be lightstruck, theres a real plasticine thing in there too and some lemons. Quite light on the palate, lemony, light struck in all probability. Light body, metallic bitterness. Not great.

On tap in La Capsule. Poured a bright blonde with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt and floral hops. Medium body, flavour of citurs (lemon) hops with some sweet hoppiness. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

erickok (5858) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2012
Clear golden body with off white and unstable head of small bubbles.Pleasant herbal and light spiced aroma, fresh grass from the hops, very light malts but enough clean yeast to give some base to this beer. Spicy taste profile, a herbal bitterness and more than expected. Has little body to build on, but I think it can get away with it. Herbal finish. Medium yet active carbonation. A bit different than expected; fairly clean and light base but with quite some classic hops, making it an interesting twist on a bier de garde/saison kind of style. Like the bretty feel to this. Very enjoyable. Man, Im a sucker for well made saisons.. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Bouteille: Cloudy, orangey-golden coloured, mid-sized fluffy white head, moderate herbal-hoppy nose with a malty-yeasty background; solid dryish bitter flavour with only a slight sweetness; dry lingering fruity-hoppy finish. Far better than than the most french beers...
