3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden with a fast dimishing head that subsides to leave you with only a small white rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of pepper, fruits (citrusy) and quite noticeable sulfur. There is also a grain husk feel to it. Taste is completely dry with some fresh cereals flavors. There is an astringent grainy finish/aftertaste that I’m not really fond of. Body is light, carbonation high. Mouthfeel impression is that it is slightly lacking. Overall this is a slightly flawed saison, I’ve tasted worse but I’ve tasted a whole lot better too.

Amber pour pretty good yellowy head. Very fruity aroma, cherries, bretta, pepper. Flavor is more savory, briny. Beer is not sweet, but also watery. Hints at a dry finish but doesn’t quite pull it off.

Smooth, drinkable, somewhat refreshing, and mildly complex. Enjoyable, but not worth seeking out.

Bouteille partagée par Tom10101, merci! Une saison plutôt ordinaire, qui repose principalement sur des touches de poivre, de lavende et de levures belges. Not terrible, but not great.

Bottle (650 ml). From dresden, thanks! Slightly hazy bright golden/orange with a medium spotty off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, spicy/peppery notes, soapy notes and caramel. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with spices, caramel, strawberries and a long lasting soapy/spicy finish. Medium body, but watery mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Average Saison at best. Weird soapy presence, lack of dryness/refreshing qualities, average balance.
