2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Medium amber, thin white head.
Quite spicy aroma, lots of dried fruits, apricots, marzipan, almonds, more like a Barley Wine than a Saison.
Semi-sweet, medium body and bitterness, very low CO2.
Fruity, cloying taste, dried fruits, yeast, marzipan, walnuts, leather, tobacco, alcohol. Bottled in 2009, will last 5 years according to label – no way!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy red beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of pepper, yeast, lemons, and other fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, malt, caramel, as well as some spices and lemons, leading to a thick finish, where the alcohol warms the palate. A bit thick for my liking of a Saison.

Had this one back in 2009:
Small and quick disappearing lightly off white head on top of a hazy orange to darker orange colored beer.
Smell some fruit, yeast, hay, hops and light citrusy.
Taste is light sweet from malt and yeast, some fruity notes and a light bitterness.
The aftertaste is a bit short, light sweet and lighter bitter.

2009 bottle. Still lively, clear amber with a decent cream colour head. Smooth and slightly viscous palate, good fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, some cream. Light touch of dried fruits and crystallised fruits. Still a little a peppery alcohol here. Smooth semi dry finish. Warming afterglow. Decent.
