A decent, but average Saison. I think that I paid too much for what it was. Plenty of herbal and funky goodness, but it was lacking something...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml Bottle. Aroma is very fruity, there’s apple, citrus in there as well as malts biscuits and the typical Belgian smokiness. It pours a cloudy amber with plenty of sediment and fizz. Its topped with a thick white head. The taste is very much along the same lines with added sweetness and a hint of burnt toast. It has a very dry finish. Not a bad beer at all tho -one of Belgians better ones.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught Third of a Pint at GBBF 2013, Olympia, London Aug 2013 - Labelled as "De Ranke Saison 7%"; but their only listed saison is Saison De Dottignies which is normally 5.5%; so this could be the wrong beer. Unfortunately took very sketchy tasting notes: Orange in colour. Cloudy. Earthy. Sour. Lemon fruity. Wheaty. Decent.

bardzo dobre saison, mocno chmielne i goryczkowe. Orzezwiajace i lekkie w piciu. Zolto pomaranczowa barwa, lekko nawet miedziana po dolaniu sporej ilosci osadu drozdzowego. Piana spora i trwala, znacznie wystajaca poza szklanke. Bardzo dobrze pasowalo do dania czyli drobiu. Polecam

Bottle. Pale blond golden colour, big white head. Aroma is grainy, citrus hops like the others but less full on. Bit of bubblegum and herbiness. Taste is similar, perfectly nice, grainy saison, less pronounced than the smell. Decent enough though. Dry. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small bottle that thought about gushing, 10C. Just hazy amber with a large white head that collapses to an inch and then sticks around. Floral aroma with some dusty and earthy notes, lemon. Light bodied, very high carbonation which settled down after a few minutes. Surprisingly firm toasty caramel, although there’s little sweetness, lemon, spices (white pepper, cloves). Very dry finish with fairly high bitterness. I would have liked just a touch of nectarine to make it a little more welcoming, but this is a very good beer that seems just barely tamed.

Drunk from 75cl bottle bought from Malting Pot.
Pleasant tasting saison beer. Blonde and full of hoppy flavour.
