4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a large, white frothy head that mostly lasts. Body is hazy and sparkling, color is yellow. Aroma contains orange, lemon, dough, banana, cherry, coriander and other spices. Flavor starts off light acidic, to be followed by sweetness and to finish in light astringent bitterness and warming alcohol. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. I love it! It's not very complex but very subtle and well balanced.

Hazy golden, pillowy white head. Aroma: very yeasty, with plenty of spice (coriander), lemon peel, dough, wood. Taste: strong citrus notes, spice, apple, touch of funk. Dry/sour finish. Creamy mouthfeel, high carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. A lovely, complex beer.

Draught. Pours a very hazy dark gold with a somewhat thick white head. Nose and taste both have just a hint of sour, but not overpoweringly so. Itís actually a very light beer thatís easy to drink. Much better than I thought.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Fresh and sweet odour, maybe a bit plain. Taste is great though, nice balance between the bitter and sweet and quite fruity. Aftertaste is a bit alcoholic, though. Beer is cloudy, dark yellow with a thick head that lasts for quite long.

Draught @ Monks: This one pours a hazy orangish color. There was almost no head and no lacing. The nose is very nice. Many varied fruits coming through, but no real sweetness. Actually a hint of sourness to the fruits. The taste is very good. Some dryness and bitterness, and a hint of sourness also. Subtle fruits, hints of spices. Exceptionally smooth . Very nice!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the better Saison Belgians that I've ever had. Super super super carbonated when first outing, reminds me a lot of the Dogfish 75 minute, and puts a nice golden color with plenty of sediment. Great tastes of pears and bananas, and has a nice finish.
