33cl bottle. Hazy golden with a thick fluffy head. Aroma is hoppy, floral, spicy, belgian yeast, peppery. Moderate sweetness with a long bitter finish, that is maybe a bit rough. Reminds me of De Ranke XX bitter in a much less extreme way. Average carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Overall great saison. I do not undestrand the low ratings, especially compared to others like Dupont Saison.

Well it does certainly have a fine head and good foggy gold body that no one could complain about, unless they like crappy beers, and I myself like to think I dont like crappy beers. The aroma is a lot of yeast with a hint of coriander, European to be sure and Im not sure where all these hops are they go on aboot but nonetheless the aroma is great since it brings back memories. Flavour is a great mix of European yeast and hops with a dry finish. Great mix on this one, slightly dry and floral but not specifically so. Balanced, intriguing, and a good sign that French beers are moving in the right direction.

Sampled from a bottle purchased in Paris. Hazy orange-gold colour with a good white head. The aroma is of ripe banana, and the taste is an interesting mixture of grass, citrus and banana. Medium bitterness. Quirky and delightful.

Bottle. Pretty good. The taste is fresh, hoppy, and citrusy. The beer looks nice and hazy although the head is a bit funny.

330ml at home. Nice whit thick head with good lacing. Hazy pale orange colour. Sweet apple, sourness and some earthlike flavors in aroma. Taste is some malts, raw sourness and medicinelike bitterness. Palate is under medium. Ok but useless.

Tesorino (12) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Slightly clouded amber-orange with a thin head. Has a tropical fruitiness thats better stated in its nose, behind a medium to high bitterness.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2016 1 year old bottle on LCBO clearance. Pour hazy yellow with white head. Nose is faint fruity esters, some peach and pear notes, and grainy malt and some citrus hop bite. Taste is mild, fruity esters, some citrus hops, tart notes, malt and nice bitterness that lingers a bit. Still rather dry.

Blonde qualifie trs sobrement par son brasseur de blonde houblonne. Avec un houblon du Kent dailleurs. Niveau abv de 5,5 %. Exemplaire jeune, cueilli en direct la brasserie. Couleur jaune clair brillant, au lger voile de levure. Bulles moyennes, trs peu nombreuses. Mousse qui forme un nappage soyeux 1 mm, bien tal et constant. Armes de malt clair, houblon de classe, fruits blancs, camomille, pointe de brett. 1re bouche douce soyeuse, avec malt clair, houblon, fleurs blanches. Arrire-bouche trs douce, ronde en texture, la belle amertume. 2me aux sublimes nuances malt/houblon. Arrire-bouche avec une amertume frache, de caractre. 3me avec houblon, tabac blond, fleur de lin. Arrire-bouche incisive, prcise, nette. Du grand art. Longueur forte, dense, aux importantes nuances de houblon. Jambes fines, groupes, trs belles. Levure douce, fine, trs belle ligne. Alcool bien adapt au genre. Finale de pure classe. CONCLUSION: cette bire est davantage une ipa quune saison, comme class par ratebeer. Le principal tant videmment lampleur de ses saveurs et le plaisir de sa dgustation, en suivant ltoile du Nord!!
