3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - some wheat and sweetish aroma, light caramel with some tropical fruitiness, some piney hoppyness, faint yeast. Body is medium, malty - some wheat and lightly sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness, some citrus and piney hoppyness, faint yeast. Finish is average, malty - light yeast and dryish, some sharp/bit soapy piney hoppyness and faint alcohol. Nice aroma, but finish lacks the fruitiness and hoppyness gets bit soapy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Clear orange body with a nice off-whitehead. Aroma is citric fruity with some caramel malt. Flavor is rather sweet malty with decent bitterness and citric fruit like peaches. Medium body. Not a Saison in my book, but still a nice beer on the sweeter and quaffable side. Aftertaste feels a bit more dry.

Hazy amber color, with generous creamy head. Interesting aroma, there is some sugar, some yeast, spices, coriander, light fruits, some sweat; it has character. The flavor is dry, very yeasty, that would be ok, but there is also a strong vegetable presence; quite astringent too; maybe some light fruitiness.
Harsh, with a lot of Belgian character; interesting, for nervous evenings.

A cata a cegues es nota la factoria De Molen. El seu llevat, notes maltoses. Té textura i un final en boca amarg i llarg. Perň jo no la consideraria una Saison. Si em vull beure una Saison m’agraden molt més altres cases.
