3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml 2.004 on cork. Pours a huge off-white head over lite, cloudy, straw colored ale. No lacing. Sweet nose with dank overtones of yeast, staw, and frsh cut grass. There is very fine sediment. The taste is great! Very dry and somewhat acidic, with hints of lemon and chamomile tea. The mouthfeel is a little over the top in carbonation. The yeast is starting to form a small yellow pile in the bottom of the tulip. All and all this was a very enjaoyable, refreshing, and relativly cheap beer experience.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium aroma of malts, wheat, fruit, Saison yeast and citrus.
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with medium yeast and with a medium white/off-white head.
Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts, wheat and fruit; ends slightly dry with Saison yeast and citrus.
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Way too balanced and thus safe for a Saison, being not intense enough and having no complexity whatsoever. Funny to see that the last sip you take has none of these problems, so... It could have been what it should have been.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers. I’ve heard good things about this, but it has to stand up next to Saison Dupont. It’s got a massive white foam head but colour is a beautiful rich opaque golden amber. Nose is citrusy lemon, pithy orange, grassy, floral, creamy, caramel, spicy, maybe dried coriander. Ok this is good. Taste is citrusy, orange and caramel, lemon, lots of yeast funk, fruity, and creamy, some minerals, orange rind, with dried coriander, spicy. This is really good. Not quite up there with Saison DuPont,but not far off.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Etre Gourmet. Hazy, dark yellow. Huge, rocky, lasting, white head. Nose has sugary, brioche malts. Lemon rind hop. Fruity, ripe banana yeast. Nothing too complex, but it’s clean and fruity. Taste is light sweet. Some light, stone fruit dryness. Foamy mouthfeel. Light body. Tangy, banana skin bitter finish. Good stuff. Easy drinking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blonde dorée claire, mousse blanche aérée abondante instable et rocailleuse. Carbonatation forte et très fine. Nez parlant de grains, de houblon et de léger citron. Attaque sur l’acidité avec la petillance qui joue sur la langue et le palais (impression d’un champagne). Notes fruitées discrètes du citron et abricot. Légère amertume en fin de bouche. Epeautre clair dans son apport d’une fine acidité. Final très court. La bouche semble rincée et en attente de la gorgée suivante. Bière de saison imparable, simple mais très identifiable.

Bottle shared with Shonali at hopaholic. Hazy straw yellow colour, nice white head. Nose is sour and grainy. Taste is low sourness, almost no bitterness. Very high carbonation, maybe too much. Very nice nose, sadly doesn’t deliver that much.
