2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma: Some sour notes, and melted butter!
Appearance: A hazy straw colored beer. A white head with some lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Ok, here the butter really takes over, this can’t be good, well it was only part of a sample tray.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, a sticky and soft texture. A small body with a not dry finish.
Overall: If this is intentional it is not for me, and not a saison!
Note: On-tap at Monks Porter House. Reviewed 2012-11-28.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle brought back from the source by my brother on a recent trip. Pours a true copper, lots of bubbles and a pile of pure white head. Dies down to a layer that clings to the glass walls as well. Has a fair amount of floating sediment. Smells fruity, hop-like and Belgian yeast. Tastes bitter, fruit, alcohol bite. Good stuff. After a few pulls the lacing really shows up.
