3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shining amber body with, depending in the amount of yeast poured, clear to misty body. Fruity aroma, more so than most beers nowadays called Saison. Also has farmy yeast, French bread, some darker grains. Quite a crisp body, helped by the heavy carbonation. I think this would age and improve greatly, as there’s not much hop but a superb body, rustic and full of potential. In all honestly it’s far from the collaboration they did with Hill Farmstead, but then again, that way my favourite beer of 2014. This is still great. (75cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice hazy dark golden color with a fine off white head that last. Good lacing. Some yeast, banana and wheat. Nice smooth body with a fine carbonation that made it easy to drink. Was worried that it was a bit to high carbonation because the enormous head. But it was very pleasant to drink. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Somehow it felt like a hefe weisse. Lovely balanced flavor with some yeast, mild banana, whaetish and mild spiced. Really lovely ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dorée voilée, effervescence moyenne-faible, col blanc moyen. Plutôt maltée, amertume légère pour une saison mais néanmoins fruitée et d’une finesse assez exemplaire. Un vrai plaisir!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Belga interessante. Colore arancio pieno, schiuma non troppo persistente, alcolica con 8% eppure non si sentono, un amaro nel finale che resta al palato rispetto al sapore appena appena dolce e fruttato iniziale, anche speziato e secco direi. Una saison da provare.
