Mostly clear yellowish gold body with a white head.

Aromas are herbal, floral, yeasty and maybe just a little fruity.

Herbal, almost tea like, with notes of white pepper, damp hay, vaguely lemonesque with medium hop bitterness and a dry finish. A little earthiness from the yeast, but this does not seem like a sour or even brett driven take on the style. More staright forward, balanced and complex.

Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.

Drinkable, complex, not life changing, but very good.

A - Pours a muddy river water colour, with a thick white head and swirls of sediment.

S - Mould, wet blanket, apple cider vinegar. Sour and rustic.

T - Bags of funky yeast here, peach, pear and apple cider.

M - Chalky in the finish, high carbonated and pritzy.

O - Plenty of farmhouse character.

Hazy golden colorwith a really rocky, pillow-like head. Smells a little earthy. The taste is "rustic", earthy, spice, actually quite tasty but overall I would prefer Dupont. It seems like I always use DuPont as the measuring stick for saisons and some come close but few if any exceed it.

33cl, best before the end of Nov. 2015, purchased in Belgium.

Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a nice, clumpy and creamy head. Good retention, some lacing.

The aroma is lightly fruity, with a faint citrus rind character and floral quality.

Flavor is surprisingly bitter for a light Saison. Wheaty and grainy flavors come through, along with a spicy and medicinal quality. Grassy hop flavor. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and a tad too much at first, but it creams up nicely after a while.

Nice Saison. I remember enjoying it more on a previous occasion, but this bottle was solid.

Deep golden color, not quite amber. Cloudy since it's unfiltered. A little bit of yeast sediment on the bottom. A nice, hoppy flavor, similar to an IPA. Very good!
