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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Saison like aroma with Citrusy and musty aroma with some botanical notes. Clear yellow to golden with medium to big white head that lasts and laces the glass beautifully. Light tart and medium to high hoppy taste. Finish is dry with spice notes and smooth bitterness. Not as bitter as expected but very nice brew...
Light bodied, medium carbonation.

Bel colore biondo, torbido, poca schiuma. Bianca che sparisce presto. Al naso è una ottima ale, spezie, malto. Al palato ancora precisa, frizzantina, malto con un finale amarognolo. Note speziate, chiude secca. Ottima e gran Belgian ale.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Several 33cl and the odd 75cl bottle over the years, 2012-2016. A modern classic and a bit of a grower, even on the upper intermediate crafty palate: distills the spicy, herbal, nettle-y, wet polderland grasses of Hallertau and a contained dry Belgian saison-ish yeast into a tonic of a Belgian Bitter/Pale Ale. - Alcohol is kept in check and put to work at the service of dryness and hop flavour. Crisp biscuit malts, opening up to minimal cereal sweetness to offset the lovely bitter bouquet of chthonic hop flowers that keeps on building and developing. - Would love to see more European craft brewers make more out of their terroir and whole cone hops instead of bidding high on travel-stressed US West Coast C-pellets. - Degustational tip to let the palate and taste buds slowly season to the XX and its saison infrastructure: start at moderate chill (7-8), sample at least half at cellar temperature (10-12). Sessionable complexity.
