3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a bright golden with a decent white head, some retention and lacing. cereals, malt structure is ok. again that saltiness in the malt. blends very well with the complex herbal, floral bouquet - not coming from the hops. hops per say are light - mainly citrusy, lemon tartness. hint of sweetness, never cloying. soft to average carbonation, light body yet a silky feeling. refreshing and good. just way too expensive.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Plain and boring. A slight hint of hay here and some citrus but that’s about all the saison around in this one. Pours golden, lager-like with decent head and lacing. Finish has light sourness. Bottle from Brou haha.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden body and small stable head. Pepper, aniseed, medicinal, crisp pilsner malt body. Light body, without much interest, quite clean for a Belgian ale, bit too sweet. Not great, but drinks okay. Expensive here, but that?s just the grey import. (341ml bottle from Paris St Bière)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bouteille de 341ml. Bière de belle couleur dorée claire, elle est translucide. La mousse blanche se fait discrète. Le nez est très frais. Les épices sont bien présentes, les fleurs aussi et le citron aussi mais par dessus tout le gingembre domine. La bouche est piquante, rafraichissante, facile et bien sur les goûts de gingembre sont bien présents. Un espèce de twist shandy de luxe.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear pale yellow in color with almost no head. Lemony breezes, mild spices, mostly ginger, beach grasses and starflowers seem to be swept by the ever-present winds of the archipelago. Taste is also quiet, certainly fresh and herbal, pure maritime air flavors, mostely like others offerings from this brewer. Body is on the light side with average carbonation and kind of watery texture. Finishes with delicate kisses from flowers and hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very, very pale yellow pour with a thin film of white foam. Aroma is very weird at first, something meaty and smoky like bacon or breakfast sausage. After some getting used to, it turns more into light lemony aromas with lots of flowers - chamomille and the like. Taste is very light, lagery, some herbal notes, pepper. Palate is thin. Lacks body.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - 341ml. Pale blond body with heavy carbonation and a thin white bubbly head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with flowery, honeyish, and spicy hints. Taste is refreshing and well balanced, but it lacks strength and complexity. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Decent summer beer.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear bright golden with no head.
Aroma: Fairly strong and assertive lemony ginger, earthy, very slightly funky, quite intense fruitiness and citrus, lots of earthy coriander, a touch of bitter herbs, a touch of esters?, a little dusty/musty, not bad for this brewery.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Another big hit of citrus and slightly peppery ginger, biscuit, minerals, more watery than the nose suggests, still some decent earthy coriander, light herbal notes, hints of esters and funk (perhaps), drinkable; dry with modest bitterness and a fairly clean, lemon-biscuit finish.
These guys are hit and miss. This one wasn’t defective, but also wasn’t a great success.
