3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I have a cold so the aroma is sort of a mystery but it smells floral hoppy. Gorgeous golden pour with huge rocky white head and a champagne-like effervesence. flavor is bitter and dry yeast with mildly astringent hops and not at all chalky. I find the palate to prefectly dry and rounded even in the midst of the one dimesional flavor of this particular beer. Really enjoyed this beer.

Bottle. Talk about craft. Cloudy golden beer. Flavor is massive, very dry mouth feel, legitimately dries out your tongue. Medium bodied, slightly funky to go with the intense bitterness. Beautiful!!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a medium sized white head that lingers. Very saison-like yeast nose with some lemon, citrus and grass. Medium to spritzy carbonation with a medium body. Some sweetness on the front but the bitterness kicks in on the back. Dry saison-like finish. This is basically a hopped up bitter saison. Great stuff!

Ottima birra con un amaro tagliente e che non ti abbandona fino al prossimo sorso. Al naso si capitano sentori floreali, erbacei, e leggermente agrumati. In bocca si sente il malto ma poi è l’amaro che domina.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the ’volle pot ’cafe Brussels.
It poured a misty light gold with a thin white head.
Lovely aroma of floral hops, white pepper, a bit yeasty, an almost saison like smell, with fruity esters from belgian yeast
It’s got fizzy carbonation, but not disturbingly so, a very long, dry bitter aftertaste, lightly doughy, bread too, hints of fruit, but very beautiful bitter overall ofcourse. A nice oily bitter mouthfeel with a dry aftermath...
This is a beautiful revolution that succeeded! De Ranke....what a brewery!
