A weird looking beer, muddy, peach-yellow colour, a head is blond and big. The nose is mix of fruits and earthyness, oranges, spices, also some herbs. Taste is dryer than aroma, lots of citrusfruity sourness, earthyness, spices and hint of fruits. Overally, the taste is quite dry and sour. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Strongly sour and earthy Saison, refreshning.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at De Molen during the RBESG 2013 tasting. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is weak citrus fruit leading to a weak bitter flavour with bags of fruit on the smooth slightly watery palate. Fine for a summer BBQ in the sunshine but lacks the complex flavours to be a great.
