3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very earthy with some strong skunky tones and a resiny mouthfeel. Has hints of pepper, light citrus, and some bready characteristics. All together a nice change of pace that I appreciate for what it is, but it wouldn’t be a go to.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle at home. Beautiful hazy straw colour, quickly building white foamy head. Complex but incredibly balanced belgian yeasty spices (pepper and koriander) and vanilla/banana, floral, some funky and musty farmhouse tones, lightly tard, grainy malts, faint American hops and champagne-like mouthfeel, body and lingering but dry finish. Not a big saison-afficionado but this is a great ale.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Eine milde Mischung aus einer leichten Säure und einem klassichen Belgian Ale, die hier nicht nur mit Fluffigkeit punktet, sondern auch ordentlich Hefe, milde Früchte und einen Schuss Vanille beinhaltet. Süffigkeit en masse - und dabei nicht zu brutal schädelnd. Top !
