Pour is a hazy blonde with a huge white head. Aroma is a decent dry pils malt with some funk thrown in there. Flavor is spicy at first then a little pepper comes out. After the swallow a little funk is left on the tounge. A very laid back easy drinking, no frills saison.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. A hazy light to medium yellow beer with an average sized, frothy, creamy, lacing, mostly diminishing white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty, lightly to moderately hoppy, lightly to moderately yeasty. There are notes of grains, bread, flowers, grass, lemon, barnyard, with some herbs. The flavour is moderately sweet. moderately sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body, lively carbonation, quite long finish with medium bitterness. It looks average and at the beginning it doesn’t smell that good, instead a bit "dirty", but not if you pay more attention. The rest is very good.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
25/09/2010 - 75cl @ Karakterbierfestival Bissegem
Pours a milk cloudy straw yellow to whitish beer, airy adhesive white head. Aroma is very stale, musty, grassy (hops) and mildew. MF is somewhat flat, medium to thin body. Taste is pretty spicy, fruity with hops. Aftertaste is hop bitter with some pepper and ends very dry. The aftertaste is the best part of this beer, best to drink it with your nose closed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, 5.0% ABV) Hazy yellow-golden with a small, but firm and lacy head. Aroma of flowery-herby hops, pale malt, some earthy tartness. Flavor is pale-malty, slightly papery and acidic, flowery, slighly ashy, moderately grassy-bitter. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation, reasonably refreshing. Quite good in its "mild and dry, pilsenery saison" class, but I prefer the more fruity/earthy/complex ones. 3543

Man, so many saisons in my backlog. Nice head on this one. Lovely thyme, chamomile, juniper and coconut aroma. A pleasure to smell. Dryish, yeasty, and a touch flat in the mouth, some hay and a corresponding pricklyness to go with it.
