3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark straw from a bottle, thick white head with good lacing, lots of effervescence. Certainly looks the part of a belgian ale. Aroma is of candied lemon with some apple notes. Flavor is a nice grassy, dry bitterness, some floral quality in there too. Alcohol towards the end. Good beer.

I really love this beer. It's the perfect Belgian beer for someone who likes hops but doesn't want a Belgian IPA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprised to see this (7.2% ABV) in The Pheasant Inn, Wellington Shropshire on tap: 9th Mar 2015. Had to have a half-pint (£3:00). Misty golden pour with a white topping. The nose and taste were of floral and fruity hoppiness, tropical fruits in fact, Mango and Peach esters/flavours battled it out within the alcoholic blend. I liked it, zesty with a mild citrus bite below the other sweeter fruitiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
growler to glass that poured a cloudy yellow color with with minimal white head. plenty of carbonation which I would assume is partly do due to the champagne yeast. the aroma is saison, lemon zest and light bread kind of fresh. the flavor is spicy lemon zest with saison and esters and lots of greats underlying flavors. not a perfect saison but a damn good one. I can understand why this would go with seafood...just a nice great spicy flavor that is light and refreshing.
