3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Lätt disig, gyllengul, vitt snabbt försvinnande skum. Lätt stalldoft, vete och citrus. Relativt söt, lätt kropp som ändå har en viss mustig maltig matig textur med lätta vällingvibbar, lätt syrlig och aningens stallkaraktär. Ändå väldigt snäll och lite slät. Känns som ett färsköl på något sätt. Trevlig

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 6 years past the BBD. Pours hazy yellow with airy off-white head and dark sediments. Sweetish aroma of honey and apple wine. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with dusty notes and touches of alcohol and yeast. Coffeelike finish, with roasty and sweetish hints. Not bad, despite the, ehm... customer-induced maturation! ;-)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample shared by a friend. Pours a slightly murky pale golden color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, grain and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of ripe fruit, grainy malt, mild spice and yeast. The finish is fruity up front with an earthy yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
schiuma molto abbondante e una carbonazione importante con buona persistenza. Ha un bel colore oro molto carico, ambrato.
Al naso è la classica saison, complessa, con note pepate, speziate e fruttate.
In bocca si presenta leggera e molto carbonata direi troppo in entrambi i casi, rendendo difficile la bevuta anche per una dolcezza troppo marcata nel finale.
Leggermente aspra e secca è una birra estiva

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Pours a pale golden with a medium-thick and eternal white head that leaves tremendous lacing. Nose is of fresh grains, doughy. Herbal and spicy notes abound. Taste is quite dry and ever so lightly tart. Again, fresh cereals are showcased along with some peppery flavors. Finishes on slightly sweet but mostly herbal notes. Body is light, mouthfeel airy, almost too easy to drink. Great!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle bought @ Etre. Pours vibrant hazy yellow with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while lee acing some trace and lacing on the glass. Smell is funky with wheat crackers, lemon juice, doughy white bread, hay, pepper corns, lemon zest and dry soil. Taste is tiny bitter, slightly sour, funky and tiny floral with crackers, sourdough bread, lemon juice, white grapes, hay, dry soil, leather, barnyard, mineral water, lemon zest and hints of white wine, banana bread and unripe pears. Mouthfeel is crisp, sparkling, dry, tart and light bodied. Finish is slightly sour and funky with wheat crackers, lemon zest, pepper corns, dry soil, hay, barnyard, grape skins, mineral water and hints of dry wood. Perfectly balanced funky saison. Impressive stuff! Perfect with rustic Brie cheese and crispbread.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Not with Tom, funny coincidence. Pale yellow pour, clear at first but with a healthy dose of floaties about halfway through the bottle, puffy white head, tons of carbonation. Aroma of light grains, bready, with some very light lemony notes, just a hint of pepper as well. Taste is quite grainy but not sweet, balanced hop bitterness, spicy yeasty finish, quite dry. Palate is very light, well carbed. Super quaffable saison, as easy drinking as can be.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy yellow with a huge frothy, but quickly collapsing white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is mild with yeast notes, pils malt, light tartness, wheat, light fruity notes and very little skunky notes. Some dust too. Taste is also yeasty with wheat, cereals, light fruits and light sweetness. Medium body. Intense carbonation. Dry finish. Not the tastiest Saison, but still quite complex despite not being overpowering. Good balance. Really quenching. Good drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
S: Grains, bread, metallic lime, yeast, and wet hay. P: Yellow/copper with a ton of foam on top. T: Rather malty, with limes, some sweetness coming through, pears come through very nicely, a hint of a metallic taste and a light spice to end it all. M: Light with medium carbonation. O: Seemed like a belgium blonde rather then a saison, very easy to drink beer.
