4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - Pours lightly hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has sourness, citrus, floral aspects and minor toasted malt. It has a medium / light body with lots of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with lots of sour fruitiness (apples, citrus, apricots) and spiciness. The finish is fruity, floral and sour. Really well done and like this version a lot more than the other version of "dozen".

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. The aroma has huge floral, herbal, grassy, and even vegetal notes, like a fresh garden, with pale malts and semi-tart lemon citrus. Flavor of lemon, grape, herbs, veggies, straw, and a bit of earthy funk. Light-medium bodied, with a tart, earthy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really unique saison.
