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.

Bottle. Hazy hay yellow liquid with medium to big white head. Aroma of white, bread, grain, smoke, plastic, spices and ham. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of white pepper, lemon, bubblegum, grain and plastic. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Ok, but lots of phenols.

Kind of a lame saison here. Really heavy banana, bubble gum, and clove. Spritzy and light which is nice but the flavor is toooo saison without any malt backbone.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light yeast flaky, hazy bright yellow in colour with a large frothy white head, medium lasting offering soft liquid lacings. Noses of hay, floral, basement aromas, barnyard and spruce. On the palate the brewery theme sticks to the plan offering a lovely fizzyness with light bitter-sour, acidic notes with hints of sweetness. Light-medium bodied well balanced on the palate with a watery texture. The finish is lightly dry, refreshing and a bit short. All in all a pleasant beer!

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
Pours a pale golden with a medium-thick and eternak 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!

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.
