3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Dany. Poured a clear gold body with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is slightly peppery with grains, yeast, cloves and some banana. The flavor isnít quite as good as the aroma with notes yeast, light lemon citrus, toast, grains, bubble gum and white pepper. Body is super delicate, light carbonation and an averge duration on the finish. Solid beer.

Wonderful. Pours with a big frothy head. Lots of lacing, cloudy blond. Smell has hay-like yeast and a little orange peel. Taste has citrus and bitterness. Soft carbonation. A faint sugary sweetness. Big bottle from Peluso.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Typical Saison aroma in mild fulfilment, cautious fruity notes, a very cautious touch of smoke, herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is rather similar; soft palate, soft carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Though very mild and soft a superbly balanced, multifaceted and "ample" Saison.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Rating the same version as sebletitje, I assume that this is the correct entry. Clear (sigh) golden with a white head. Smells sweet, sugary, cereal and some light grass. Sweet taste, white bread malt, sweet cornflakes with white sugar, grains, bitter hay and bitter floral and grass finish. Uber-simple, sweet and almost macro-fare styled. Light & fizzy, I didnít care at all for this one & too much stuff like white sugar cornflakes in here. No idea what happened here, I think that I like saisonís & the ratings are very good here. Maybe a bad keg? Worn by travel? Or I am just not getting it. (Thx! for sharing people!)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of earthy notes, spices, yeasty notes, ripe fruits and citrus. Taste is ripe fruity, spicy and earthy with some yeastiness and grass. Finish is yeasty, ripe fruity and earthy with some spicy notes. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Drewbeerme. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a fluffy white head. Nose is spicy pepper, vanilla and faint citrus. Pilsner malt and herbal hops. On tasting, it is dry overall with a vanilla tinged sweetness. Light tart note and soft. Malt forward, balanced soft bitterness. Pretty nice and different.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle. Hazed golden orange with a puffy white head. Nose is lovely roses, wheat, lavender, honey and lime zest. Crisp and creamy with a tickling sparkle, a joy to drink. Taste is subtly sweet nutmeg, grain, lemon peel, tangerine and wintergreen. Better than the brewpub Cuvee des Fleurs; my new #2 saison.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazy light gold, attractive white head, really just about the perfect looking beer. Aroma is pale malts with a delicate balance of yeast driven spice and some subtle grassy hopping on the finish. Flavor here is a match. I canít adequately describe how perfectly balanced everything is in this beer - it all just hangs together perfectly, and hits a great mix of being complex yet "drinkable." A truly superb saison.
