bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Nice aroma of slightly sour malt. Hazy dark amber color, solid beige head, no lace. Taste is sour malt that adds some caramel and earth before a carbonated swallow takes over. Slightly more bitter on a smooth medium finish. Overall, a solid fizzy ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dormaal’s second ’farm ale’, with thick, light beige head and deep brownish, cloudy orange blonde colour. Aroma of apples, walnuts, pear, caramel, cognac, grass and honey, taste a soft rounded fruitiness, mellow maltiness with agreeable nutty hints but primarily caramel-like, mild hoppy finish without any real bitterness, thirst-quenching, a bit earthy.

In tegenstelling tot de blonde en donkere is de amber een bier waar goed wat smaak aan zit, de beste dat ik van hen geprobeerd heb

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of sweet malt, ripe fruits, some apples, yeast, some spices. Flavour is medium malty sweetness. Carbonation is on the high side, finish is dry. Interesting, not your typical Saison.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy dark orange with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast and grain malt, earthy spices and hops with pear esters and dates. Flavor is sweet malt dominant, light hops and bitterness with fruity esters and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation. Seems more like a Biere de Garde to me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance had a nice looking bronzed amber color to it. It had a one finger white foamy head that died at a moderate pace. There was just a bit of thin sliding lacing.
The smell had a delicately sweet malty base with a fairly deep rustic earthiness to it.
The taste was sweet and earthy with a decent rustic backup to it. I did get some sweet apples and pears in this one.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about this. The carbonation was fairly smooth.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good saison worthy of having again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 11/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep copper amber color with a 2-3 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, black pepper, caramel, toast, brown bread, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, black pepper, caramel, toast, brown bread, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, black pepper, caramel, brown bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a very nice malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good amber saison. Good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
