3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
No gushing, but it kept in foaming after opening. Yellow murky body with big stable pillow y head. Oranges, toasty base, farmhouse, herbal hops. Saison like, I like it. Belgian yet not sweet, dry bitterness and foamy. Won’t appeal to everyone. It does to me. (33cl bottle from La Houblonière Toulouse)

Bottled, from La Cave à Bulles, Paris. Cloudy pale golden, gushing lively head. Milky lemon aroma. Mid sweet with underlying milky tartness. Light-medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Quite interesting flavour of honey, pineapple and white pepper, but a bit much lemony yoghurt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle. Hazy yellow with huge carbonation. The bottle explodes and if you don’t have enough glasses to pour the mousse in you will spoil it on the floor. Nose ; soap , citrus, zest and wet hay. Spices. Sip : low to medium density liquid, oily texture, strong carbonation. Dry and sour. Strong spices like clove and liquorice and safran. It develops sour and spicy flavours untill the aftertaste. The bitterness is moderate and well balanced.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours cloudy golden yellow with lots of frothy white head. Aroma is lemon and barnyard. Taste is a slightly sweet attack, mostly sourness and then just the faintest bit of bitterness on the finish. Almost imperceptible. Not too bad, but not really complex at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at The Kernel, London. Thanks to Paul. Pours cloudy, pale yellow with a fine, white foam head. Has quite a funky nose, with light lemon, hay and poo. Light sweet flavor with some grass, lime, faint plastic hints. Light bodied with very explosive, mouth-filling carbonation. Fairly dry on the finish with some barnyard, manure, yeast, light straw and lemon pith. Pretty nice. Mildly refreshing. Yeah, very decent stuff.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles. It pours cloudy yellow, with an orangish hue and massive white head. The nose is farmyard, lemon, hay, funky and medicinal notes. The taste is orange, lemon, farmyard, hay, metallic (due to carbonation), touch of spice, tang and soap, with a dry finish. Medium body and harsh, prickly carbonation. So-so.
