Bottle: Hazy yellow colour, with a big head. Aroma is werry fruity and citrus dominated, dust, bread and some pinapple. Flavor was a nice experience of fruits, citrus, typical belgian yeasty dominated mouthfeeling and a nice long fruity finish. Well done wlajwl (7212) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 7, 2011
In aroma, its spicy, yeasty and has a hint of banana. The flavor is crisp and leans toward a hefeweizen slightly. Not the most authentic saison but decent in flavor and pretty good if it didn’t have a style to conform to. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2011
Pours cloudy light yellow with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is yeasty with some citrus. Taste is malty, citrus and straw leading to a reasonably bitey bitter finish. Not bad. Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2011
In bottle. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma caramel, wheat, blueberries and white pepper. Similar flavours with grassy hops. Heavy carbonation and light CO2 prickle. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2011
On tap at Finch’s, Bloomington. Nice straw gold pour, with a slightly grainy, gritty look to it, and a big dappled head. Huge dry and spicy aroma is so inviting, more or less the only kind of thing I can imagine over a lunch. Spot on with some lovely yeast notes at the fore (both aroma and taste), backed up by subtly dry hopping, white pepper, mild floral notes, and a hint of sea salt in the finish. Very satisfying.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 Bottle. Faint seaweed aroma. Light orange colour. Nice white head. Sweet yeast, but rather bitter and spicy as well. piscator34 (2673) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of pale malt, nettles, flowers, marshmallow, bubblegum, and a bit of spice. Far more spice forward in the mouth, with elements of black and white pepper, more pale malt, clove, green hops, lemon pith, and a touch of banana. Moderately malty on the tongue, but with a grippy dryness/bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking, yet still fairly complex.
