4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Molt complexa aromàticament. Notes tropicals, plàtan, que evolucionen cap a l’herba del llúpol. Em fa pensar amb la seva Super Charged Saison però amb menys cos. Molt bona.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, spices, hops, and a shitload of fruits such as citrus, grapefruit, peach, and especially apricots. Wonderful balance, great brew!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber brown with a thick frothy beige head that eventually settles to a thin lacy, oily head. Lovely smells of figs, caramel, and lots of toasted malt, sweet fruit, spicy yeast and earthy hops. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Sweet malty taste with fruity apricot, yeast and spices like nutmeg. Toffee and am earthy bitter grassy finish. Underlining chocolate that brings me back for more. Nice bitterness with just a hunt of citrus on the aftertaste. A strange saison.

Chiamarla saison è un modo di sviare la mente del bevitore, subito prima di sconvolgerla con il suo gusto eccezionale. Note citriche, amaro fine e intenso del dry hopping, questo è un prodotto a due facce, entrambe sorridenti. Gli otto e passa gradi letteralmente svaniscono, dissolti dall’azione delle diverse sfumature del gusto, perfettamente bilanciate. Ogni volta che la vedrò, la berrò!

Neat cloudy, wee white head. Firm strewed line. Estery farmhouse but mainly a light chewy piss brightness. Decent. finish of firm peppery committed Saison, brill for the ABV.
Bottle, November Tasting.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330 ml bottle bought at The Bottle Shop in Sai Kung.
Looks: Cloudy hazy deep amber colour with lots of dirt like yeast sediments; Explosive three finger head and beige foam which lasted for 5 minutes. Excellent sticky lacing with active, quite fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant, sweet and refreshing grapefruit, honey, nectar, pineapple, orange, light floral, sweet malt, lime and light grass; Aroma can be smelt more than a feet away.
Taste: Nice and refreshing sweet grapefruit and pineapple, plus strong orange peel, honey, molasses, rich ale malt, strong yeast, cloves, spices, earth, hint of alcohol, strong liquorices, lime and herbal grassy hops.
Body: Mid to light, thin but slick palate.
Mouth Feel: a rich combination of grapefruit, pineapple and tropical fruit attack - grapefruit is quite dominant, bitter and freshy. Orange peel is stronger than most ales, and pineapple fits in the backgrounds nicely! Saaz’ earthiness and spicy taste also feature prominently in the mix.
Maltyness & Sweetness: very malty and rich tasting, with fitting nectar-like sweetness for a strong beer. Not cloying nor medicine at all. Almost like a barley wine!
Booze: The 8.5% abv is very well hidden, minimally tasted you won’t feel it until near the end. Cool!
Hoppiness: Very good citrusy and tropical fruit nose and taste, strong cloves, moderate earthiness and herbs in taste, and strong but subtle liquorices for a very nice, long lasting finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Rich sweet, spicy and pretty blissful to mouth.
Comments: This is a rich, strong, colourful brew which De Molen’s strong hoppiness adds more to a genuine tasty style. Enjoyable from start to finish. I’m glad I pick this one to enjoy a lazy weekend afternoon. Love it!

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
12 oz. bottle, pours an opaque dark amber with a large beige head. Aroma brings out intense fruity notes, candied sugar, and Belgian yeast. Flavour is disgustingly medicinal and cloyingly sweet - is this infected? This is absolutely revolting - completely undrinkable. Barely even worthy of my drain.
