4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Pours a burnt orange with a fizzy white head that sticks around. Nose is smoke, wood, funk and citrus. Taste is all over the place with citrus, heavy vanilla wood, cedar wood, spicy hops and a creamy finish. Truly a masterful beer. Wow.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 75cl. Flavors are a bit off. Very hazy amber - gold beer, tidy white head. Semi crisp palate, fairly dry. Malt is somewhat tripel like but not as sweet. Touch of dry wood. Rathr double than saison. Dry citrus with lemon peeping out, certainly not lemon dominant. Dry finish. Not that balanced..

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour is super carbonated. The aroma is light, a hint of lemon, just a blend of citrus. The taste is certainly over carbonated. Light an fresh though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Fruity, lemony aroma. Medium-bodied. Citric, slightly tart but very fruity flavor. Lemon, maybe apricot. Very nice dessert Belgian.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy orange golden color with three plus fingers off fizzy tight bubble foam. Nose is ripe and inviting with lots of lemony zest and field grain with some yeast esters and honeyed sweetness. On the palate it is less appealing with a lot of sweet fizzy notes of honey malt, some warm spice, pepper and more lemon tang... a bit sticky and heavy, almost bordering on a lemon dubbel rather than a saison. Weird.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@SBWF2013. Yellowish golden colour with some slight haze and a small white head. Aroma is lemongrass, some spices, herbs and quite strong on the citrusy side. Flavour is lemongrass, citrus, some floral notes along with mild spices and herbs. Balanced, but then again a rather American influenced Saison.
