erickok (5686) - Leuven, - 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)

GuideDogSaint (1257) - 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.

jmgreenuk (8512) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 11, 2017
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.

Beersiveknown (5148) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 27, 2016
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.

tricksta_p (4017) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2016
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.

bartlebier (3710) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
Full tap sample at Borefts 2016 - Dag 1, merci. - Another missing link between hayish bire de garde, dry and zesty saison and UK bitter: light-bodied, greenish, forwarding both the earthy straw of barley husk and almost a wild hedgerow hop character I am very fond of. Classic, to be revisited bottled.
