3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Tre Små Rum, Göteborg, on February 13, 2013.
Hazy to cloudy dark copper to brown color, dense tan head. Light acidic, spicy, hay, herbal, somewhat lactic scent. Sweet, alcohol, herbal, bitter, green flower stems/stalks taste. Bitter floral aftertaste. Warming alcohol. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Decent, though a bit too evident alcohol, and also the bitterness and sort of green floral notes does not go super well with my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy reddish brown with big foamy off-white head. Fruity at first (peach), then goes into light sweet grains, some nuts, caramel and spices. Then more sour with some citrus and alcohol, and finishes bitter with vegetal notes (chicory). Medium bodied, nice full carbonation. Loverly stuff, but slightly too bitter which doesn’t to too well with the sourness for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at North Bar, Leeds. Clear copper colour. Thin, filmy, white head. Burnt caramel. Thick, syrupy fruit. Some freshness by way of a hint of cut grass. Taste is thick sweetness, cut through by a sharp, unripe cherry, light bitterness. Chewy palate. Not at all what I was expecting. Enjoyed it, mind.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Gusher. Pours clear golden with profound, stable off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, with notes of hops. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and fruit, with bitter, hoppy notes. Sticky. Sweet afteraste. Good but boozy, and s this really a Saison?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 8.5%. Caramelly aroma. Cloudy amber colour. Very big stable off-white head. The flavour is also caramelly, and very much so. Fruity sweetness. OK bitterness to balance. A caramel bomb as far as I see it, but not bad at that.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours murky brown with very thin head. Loads of malt and yeast on the nose. Sweet and sticky thick body. Fruity but lacks the spice I'd expect.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber pour, nice head, weird sour aroma, malts, hops, not really what you’d expect form a saison. Sour, a bit boozy, semi bitter finish, pretty much the first beer from these guys that I haven’t enjoyed, might be an infected bottle give the sourness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle @ home. From Saveur Biere.
Doesn’t feel any freshness, looks too dark and tastes like old wool sock. I think that this is ruined.
