3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(75 cl bottle from Toft Vin; BBD: 07/17) Pours a slightly hazy golden with ample, foamy white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is hay, saison yeast, a hint of pepper. There’s a hint of bread and a hint of alcohol in there too. Quite astringent in the mouth - probably designed to be stored and rounded out for a few years. Medium carbonation. Quite dry on the palate. Flavour has more alcohol prevalence but the character seems to change as the beer warms. Interesting to dwell on but nowhere near as parfumey pleasing as the Tripel Karmeliet with its scent of green apples. This one is more farmyard saison but in a pleasant and refined way.

Yellow, hazy, slightly darker than the one year, also a bit more tart. Feels a bit more balanced than the one year. 6 / 3 / 8 / 4 /15
