Hazy amber pour with a white head. Banana, bread, and toasted malt. Nice pear, apple, and some hints of spice and yeast. Banana and bread flavor, some yeast, and a touch of spice. Very heavy on the apple and pear, sort of cidery. Kind of bland, but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cL bottle, date unknown. This is number 500 and a rare find at that. Plenty of dust had accumulated on the bottle, but that did not dissuade me from purchasing. Pours a cloudy amber with orange hints and a huge off-white rocky head, that does not die easily. Great foamy and sticky lacing throughout. Oak and eathy yeast aroma with a light fruit nose. Sour and yet sweet yeasty flavor, some oak/must with a pleasant berry undertone. Hint of spicy yeast and malt combined near the end. Refreshing with lively carbonation and a dry light to medium bodied palate.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Cole’s. Cloudy yellow, lacey. As initially served too cold, it does not improve that much as rises to room temperature. Good drinkability, medium mouthfeel, very saison yeasty aroma. Malted, but not very complex.

Tap at Smoke and Barrel in Adam’s Morgan DC. Thanks to Travlr! Pours a hazy light orange with with weak, white head. Estery apple and pear nose. Taste is soapy, watery, mild lemon, papery, astringent and tannic barley husk. Oversparged perhaps. Not a fan.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite clear amber with ochre shine; good fluffy, just off-white head, collapsing. Fresh, citrussy smell, bit of ambrée malt. Milky/creamy but not really sweet nose. Oxidised taste above malts, pale and ambrée. Bit of caramel flavour, especially in the finish, but not cloying or sticky. Another flavours as from rice - as in ’cooked or steamed’, not as in used in mash by Megabrew. Quite refreshing MF, light bodied. I am at a loss about this bottle’s age. Recently purchased, label says best before 4/2001 and that’s plain b*llocks. This is a reused label (this beer has been retired), but the beer has had some ageing for sure. Difficult to estimate for a 4.5% ABV beer. Not bad, however.
