Lätt dimmig orange öl med vitt småbubbligt skum. Doft av deg, halm, citrus och lätt funkighet. I smaken tillkommer en pepprighet. Torr munkänsla. Döljer alkoholen mycket väl.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Classic ’strong saison’ since 1988. Off-white, thick, rocky head leaving pretty lacing on the edge of the glass, warm orange blonde colour, clear but gradually becoming more cloudy as the bottle is emptied. The aroma is a pleasant combination of fresh, sweet fruitiness (orange, pineapple, apple peel, melon) and an earthy, saison-like spicines (pepper, hay, nutmeg, herbal hops) with further impressions of bread, honey, biscuit, sherry. Fruity taste, fresh citrussy touch, light caramel malts, vaguely sweetish but above all dominated by an appetizing, spicy, earthy, rooty dryness stretching deep into the finish, where leafy hops and gin-like alcohol appear. Great example of its style, like all of Blaugies’ beers.

Draft at Edmunds Oast. Cloudy golden pour with a large frothy white head. Nose presents peppery yeast, earthiness, orange and lemons peels and wet dough. Palate is fairly dry with musty yeast flavors, earthy, citrus peels and peppercorns. Rustic and delicious.

Mousse dense et crémeuse par dessus un liquide orange clair, troublé, doré, effervescent. Nez frais rappelant le pamplemousse, amertume franche, désaltérante, malt riche, nourrissant. Une vraie merveille.

Bottle at the Capital in Leuven. Cloudy orange with a big bubbly foam head. Woody, somewhat smoked, herby and crisp, with a hint of sour. The aroma is sour, farmyard, quite lambic. Pretty tasty.
