4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours a nice golden with a firm white head. A bit lighter than I remembered it. Aromas of citrus fruit, white fruit and herbal hoppiness. Also some mineral notes. On the palate it is mediumbodied, highly carbonated and with firm bitterness.
The flavour is spicy (white pepper, coriander) and hoppy.
A very good - even excellent - beer.

Yeast and sugary. Impossible to pour with all the foam that kept pouring out, but that was nice actually. A little frustrating, but what I’m I going to do? Bits of fine pear, lemon, hay, weed, straw. Bunches of dough, yeast, cookie, bread flavor to chew on. Big mouthfeel.

75cl bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden. Looks and smells like a particularly good tripel, with that Dupont funky yeast aroma. Grapefruit, pepper and coriander on the nose also. Very smooth mouthfeel with good dry bitter finish. A cracker.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2006 Vintage 2002. Cork practically blew off of this bottle. Great carbonation for being 3 years old. 3/4 inch dense and creamy head of very fine bubbles. Amazing carbonation keep the head on the surface for the duration. The lacing that this brews leaves is more like a quilt than a thin sheet. Fruity aroma with lemons, yeast and grass. An initial bit of skunkyness but that passes as the brew gets a chance to breath. Bright gold in color with good clarity. Light and crisp flavor with more fruityness, some spices (pepper), a nice alcohol warming and a big helping of green sour apples. Finish has a little alcohol kick that goes right to the head. Clean finish that is crisp and zippy. A fantastic saison and one that has aged great!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2006 (on 75cl bottle)Under "saison" there will be a picture of this, aroma of dirty horse, earth, hay and spinderweb; i know cause I come from the country side. Big white head, golden, hazy colour. Actually not much of a flavour, the finish takes over at once, with medium bitter sourness and a warming alcoholic feel - a good session beer, but a bit strong alcoholic-wise.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 On tap into Duvel tulip, somewhere in the LA area. Hazy pale yellow with a thick fizzy foam head that’s large. Glittering, uniform and sticky lacing, ok racing. Smells like yeast, cobwebs, lemon zest and spruce. Tastes like cloves, lemons, limes, and yeast with corriander in the finish. Kind of watery, and I would have liked a bit more carbonation. Better than average, but not better than that, in my opinion.
