2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: medium clear gold; thick white head leaving frothy lace. Aroma: floral, funky, notes of citrus, dusty basement, yeast and mild grains. Taste: as the aroma indicated, with definite flowery-funky notes and a hint of sourness. Finish: smooth, slightly clingy. Notes: Not my favorite saison. While I liked the idea of the elderflowers and the creativity it implied, I didn’t enjoy the execution. A little too sour, musty and funky; palate was almost oily. Bottle from Rare Beer Club.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas
Hazy deep blond color; creamy head. The aroma is a bit smelly, cheesy, more than elderflower. Smooth mouthfeel, light malt flavor, with some vegetables, herbs; low bitterness. Very strange.
