Pours soft bright yellow with one finger white head. Grassy and slightly bready nose with a light acidity and yeasty character. Flavor shows very subdued notes of fresh cut grass with a green apple acidity and light peppery character. Very nice, packing a lot of flavor for a low grav beer.

(From 75cL bottle @ ZZT VIIIb, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing, ansjelaah!)
An okay saison, though not much to separate it from competitors. Light citrus with a nice Belgian spice aroma.

Style et résumé: Saison simple . tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2010
Comment: Bouteille de750ml.
Description: Un liquide jaune paille avec une mousse blanche. Un nez frais de fleurs blanches, d’herbes et de thé. Une bouche agréable, simple avec des saveurs d’herbes, paille et de blé surit. Une finale sèche et facile à boire.
Spicy, floral and grassy aroma features the hops with some underlying tropical fruits and a slightly tart edge. Lightly hazy golden body is topped by a fizzy white head that recedes fairly quickly to a thin but lasting cover with some sticky lace. Flavour is perhaps not as bright as the aroma suggests instead featuring fresh-mowed grass, wet hay and earthy notes to complement the tart fruitiness. Some cereal malt character in the aftertaste. Medium light body with pleasantly strong effervescence that prickles the front of the tongue. Eminently drinkable. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in May 2010. callmemickey (4542) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Pale, golden-straw colored body. Large, fluffy, creamy head. Good retention as the head slowly crept down the sides. Nice coating of lacing.
S: Wheat, hay, lemon zest, light pepper, and a touch of tart barnyard funk.
T: The presence of wheat is undeniable. Nice lemon blast. Less peppery than the nose. Good, manageable funk. Slightly tart in the finish.
M: Smooth, ideal weight in the body. Carbonation is spot on. The finish is nice and satisfying.
O: While there was nothing "stellar" about the aroma or the flavor profile, this was a very enjoyable brew. Upright describes it as their "table" saison... I think thats the perfect description. At 4.5% and pleasant from start to finish, this is the kind of saison you need a case of at all times so you can crack one every night with dinner.

From tap at De Molen during Borefts ’15. Aroma of fruits, citrus, yeast, floral notes. Flavour is light sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish. Body is light to medium. This one won’t win any awards for character or complexity, but it’s a pleasant light refreshing Saison that goes down well on a summer day. MrHangover (4439) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2015
Sampled @ Borefts ’15. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma of slight barnyard funk, lime, citrus. Flavor is light sweet, fruity and light tart. Very light bitter, fruity finish. Very nice!
