3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle: Hazy golden yellow with a large thin-bubbled white head that quickly settles. Barnyard-like yeast and straw make up the aroma, fizzy sharp lively body, starts and ends sweet.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy maize body with a huge white head. Aroma of florals, banana, hops, and mustiness. Flavor of yeast, spices and a hint of fruit. Enjoyable saison.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 Straw. Huge, frothy and rocky head. Strong, bursting nose with an undeniable earthy and herbal character with a touch of orange, lemon and the distinct Blaugies farmhouse character. In flavor, one of the hoppiest saisons I have ever had. Notes of herbs, grass, pepper, fruity esters and a touch of tartness. I especially like the thick and bubbly, almost exploding feel on the palate. This isnít nearly as magical as the two La Moneuse saisons but itís still very good in its own right.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very lively beer with a light orange color and a warmgolden shine. Fluffy airy head leaving a good lace. Fresh agrum aromaís with hints of grass, flowers, yeast and fresh goats cheese. The taste is round and very refraishing. It has a light malty touch with hints of citrus and white berryís. It is all well counterd by a vegetal, herbal accents that brings a fine dry bitterness is this outstanding brew.

This one didnít really do much for me. An alright flavor, but nothing to really set it apart. Seemed very basic to me. Itís not bad...just doesnít measure up to some really nice saisons.

Bottled. Hazy golden. Sweetish and lively with funky, lihjt sparkling mouthfeel. Fairly hoppy, but the sweetness takes the edge of it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nothing really jumps out on this one. Straw colored brew with a thick white head. Slight spicy aroma with some grassy notes. Very slight light fruit notes with a weird spiciness. Canít quite put my finger on whats going on. Good brew but nothing to go out of your way for imo.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 2003 (I assume) 750mL bottle. Surprised this breweryís beers arent rated higher. Pours a hazy, soft fuzzy yellow, with some light whitish greens and some deeper golds swirling around in there. Tons and tons of vigorous white head pour forth from the bottle and perch atop the beer. Aroma of wheat (I guess it would be the spelt), some grassy herbal notes (light mint, thyme, grass concoction). A hint of some fruitiness, quite dry, more like dry pears. Plenty of spicy yeastiness. Flavor is soft, surprisingly, quite dry and earthy, with tons of chewy wheat, lightly peppery yeast on the finish and a pleasing bitterness, just enough to provide some variety in the palate. This stuff drinks like water after youíve let it breath for a good hour or so (or overnight in my case). Very hydrating and drinkable!! Utmost quality from blaugies, and Iím really excited to try the rest of their beers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2009 (Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy golden with a large, fluffy and white, quickly descending head. Dryish, honey-pale-malty aroma with a touch of barnyard tartness and citrusy hops. Neutral-malty flavor with citrusy-fruity hops and a light wheaty sourness. Medium body, quite refreshing, high but soft carbonation. A well-made and refreshing summer beer with a reasonably low ABV.
(Bottled, 0.375l, was 7-4-7-4-14=3.6) Hazy orange color with huge but vanishing head. Quite dry, yeasty and slightly fruity aroma. Dry, medium-hopped, fruity and yeasty flavor. Medium-bodied, medium-carbonated, crisp palate. Quite refreshing, interesting and enjoyable saison.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Hazy yellow with small floaties that produced a huge initial head and good lace. (The cork popped by itself after removing the cage). The aroma has fruity tones of lemon, lime, and apple, Additional esters of earthy yeast, wheat, pepper, and a grassy/flowery nature. The taste has notes of tart fruits, mild bitters, wheat and other grains, yeasty and herbal qualities. The finish has some spice and woody notes. The feel is VERY lively, overcarbonated, very crisp and sharp. It tingles the tongue then becomes bone dry. This tastes like summer, dry and dusty. I honestly say that this is not that refreshing but still highly quaffable, different and interesting on many levels.
