3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Chambly festival.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow. No lacing.
Aroma : Herbal and quite spicy. Lots of herbs. A bit like algae.
Taste : Herbal with algae. A bit fruity and grassy. Maybe a bit salty also. Finish rather dry.
Overall : A bit unilateral. Too much spices and herbs. Not my type of saison (and it’s not even classified as a saison here...)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a weak clear yellow with no head and no lacing. Aroma is faint herbs and floral grains. Taste is crisp, clean, floral and herbal. But lacking that dry bitterness. A little too delicate for me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 ml bottle from La Barik. Pours a nearly clear, bright pale yellow with small white cap. Aroma is perfumey flowers and spices. Flavour is also floral with some light citrus and spicing that to my mind recalls rosemary and a touc of pepper. Light crisp finish. Interesting and refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very clear, pale gold. "Almost" water-like. Not much head. Aroma is of flowers. Tastes flowers, hops. Crisp finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. "Clear" lack of complexity. Gives the impression of a cold chamomilla herbal tea. I do lie the flowers, but that’s really all that beer’s got.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled straw with a nice white head. Smells like grains and orange. Taste is citrus (orange, mostly), some pear and a hint of herbs. Light herbal/floral bitterness. Some spices in there. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Good, simple beer. A bit pricey, though...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Crystal clear pale golden with a thin white head with below average retention. Aroma is very herbal and floral with some pale malt, honey and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is also herbal and floral with sweet malt and a dry finish. Pretty mineral. Fizzy carbonation with a thin to medium body. Not overly complex but a nice very drinkable beer with fresh herbs aroma.
