4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle dated 2005. Pours a translucent gold with a very thick and creamy off white head. Lots of bubble and a few floaties swimming around too. Fizzy and tart on the palate. Taste is very crisp and refreshing with a distinct lemon and hops aftertaste. A very good Saison. The more I drink Saisons, the more I like them. Top notch brew here.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Humulus. Satisfying champagne-like pop. Very pale, pillowy white head on top. Aroma of sun-baked hay fields reminds me of the countryside in summer, touch of woody herbs. Spritzy carbonation, but appropriate. Soft, light doughy sweetness to start on the tongue, then develops into light herbs, lemon, a hint of pine needles, a bit of creaminess. Lots to discover as it warms. Light in body, dry and bitter finish. Beautiful stuff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light golden body with a large, bubbly white head. Nose is boiled vegetables, faint stable notes, hay, straw, bread dough and hints of white sugar and baker’s yeast. Taste is white sugar, baker’s yeast, bready malt tones, citric peel and hints of bitter herbs, wet grass and gooseberries. Light to medium body, fizzy carbonation. A saison with a certain character to it, despite a slightly off-note aroma and a far too fizzy carbonation level - even for a farmhouse/saison-style of beer. Not fantastic, but not too bad either.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A light yellow beer with a big, clouding and blond head. The aroma is just as good as it should be in the good saison. Earthyness and sourness, spices, some fruis, hint of lemon and flowers. Taste is fruiful with lemon, slightly sour and spicy, quite dry. Strong carbonation, medium bodied, together with dryness makes this a fresh to drink. The great beer with the perfect balance, easy and enjoyable.
