3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear reddish amber with a modest beige head. Vinous aroma of cherries, dark berries, herbs, dough, boot polish. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Pleasantly refreshing taste of sweet berries, tart apples, oak. A strange hint of cocoa. Some bitterness at the dry and woody end. There’s a bit of a sense that someone’s poured this beer into a dirty Pinot Noir glass because the flavours are not terribly well integrated, but the balance worked pretty well and the sweet/ tart/ bitter thing is there even if there’s no great depth of flavour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Spicy, fruity and floral. Huge almost overwhelming taste of the pinot coming through which i dont think did the original saison any favours, Nice enough will try and find the original beer without the wine.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweetish, fruity aroma, hints of berries, grapes, a minimally floral and herbal hop touch. Taste is dry to bitter hoppy, herbal, hints of fruit parings, foliage, tobacco; overall somehow vinous; too strong, dense carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, amber colored beer topped by a dense, off-white head. The aroma is lightly spiced, with a rye like touch and toffee hints. There’s some spiced notes in the flavor too, a light bitterness and toffee hints, but I would like quite a lot more fruityness. Medium to full body. Well, it’s a decent beer, quite pleasant actually, but still sort of boring. Would like to repeat it though. 130208
