It’s called a double saison, but I don’t know what’s so double about it. It tastes like a normal saison, even a bit flat.

A shock of taste and nothing. The sweet beginning mellow out quickly into more familiar citrusy saison flavors. Brown and hazy with a floral head.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ ’t Arendsnest in amsterdam. Pour is really dark amber with a smallish eggshell head. Nose is faint malt and yeast, but very subdued. Flavor is initially a big, sweet bready malt with brown sugar and some stone fruit, which is pretty out-of-place when your brain is thinking ’saison’. Very dubbel-ish. Finish is more of the classic saison flavors of spicy/fruity yeast esters and a pleasant dry hop bitterness to close. Nose and initial taste were pretty bland/meh, finish was excellent. A strange take on the style for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam.
Pours hazy amber with a small, staying, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, oranges and light pepper. Medium, lively carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is pretty sweet, malty, fine light pepper, caramel and a bit of sugar. Good, but maybe a tad too sweet. Light dry hoppy finish.
