Palate: medium, slightly effervescent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Ebenezers. Clear golden orange beer with a tall white head. Has much more of a sweet, raisin like profile than I would have expected. There’s some caramel, simple syrup, and orange marmalade. Lots of sweet fruits going on here. Not what I have usually associated with Blaugies...maybe old? Notes of citrus and grape on the finish. Ended up being disappointed by this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Handsome bottle to globe. Pour is hazy amber with a large, long - lasting white head. Aroma is initially slightly funky but then gives way to hay, chamomile, light coriander, and a touch of red wine. Flavor is creamy and lightly spicy up front with a hint of fruity hop and citrus. Finish is fruity with light bubblegum and dry floral notes. More than classic saison with earthy, woody character and a fruity, floral hop presence.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
La biere est rousse, avec un beau collet de mousse, et aucune effervescence. Au nez c’est citronné, avec une grosse arôme de levure saison. En bouche, l’absence totale d’effervescence me frappe. Le goût est assez citronné et sucré, comme une vraie saison à la belge. Le goût apres quelques gorgées devient assez caramélisé et alcoolisé, indiquant une belle balance levure - malt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Etre Gourmet. Hazy, dark gold. Loads of lively, fast rising bubbles. Huge, frothy, lasting, off white head. Nose has granary bread. Soapy yeast. Baked apple. Taste is sweet, and bready, and yeasty. Soapy mouthfeel. Foamy carbonation. Some fruity esters on the finish. Dryish close. Ok.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle, the cap on the caging is smudged but it looks like the printing on it says BL10115. I guess it’s a 2015 bottle? Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with a couple inch off-white head. Head retention is really good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like clove, apple, earthiness, wheat/grainy malt and peppery spice. It tastes like yeasty earthiness, wheat/grainy malt, hay, peppery spice, apple, clove, and a bit of apricot. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s somewhat dry with a lot of carbonation. But the carbonation is soft, and I thought it was easy enough to drink. I liked this brew a lot, it’s a very enjoyable saison. Definitely recommend this to anyone who likes saisons.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a huge rocky head that dissipates little by little. Big farmyard nose with apple and pear, wet hay, cobwebs. Very earthy with some manure notes as well. Full-on farmyard. Highly carbonated and a little fruity sweetness, but as the finish starts the bitterness kicks in. Dry finish with peppery hops. A lot going on and great for the price. Hides the alcohol very well.
