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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Very mild Saison aroma, fruity notes of apricot and peach, almost neglectable yeasty overtones, more dusty than really spicy. Taste follows those "mild" and easy drinakble lines. Nice, but nothing more...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle shared at home. Clear golden with big bright white head that leaves a nice long lasting film. Looks like a classic Belgian ale. Cloves, lots of dry Belgian spicy yeast, raw grains, wheat, fresh baked bread, lemon. Light sweet and bitter. Under medium bodied, bone dry and slick feel with fizzy carbonation. Super drinkable classic style. Not hugely exciting but way better than more commercial examples.
