If toast always lands butter-side down, and cats always land on their feet, what happen if you strap toast on the back of a cat and drop it?

pop from cork might wake the neighbors.i have never liked (alot) a beer over 7.5% and i can still say this after trying this saison.taste of alcohol is not "well hidden",maybe 1 too many spices,and that sweeter taste as the saison warms is not to my liking!

Hazy golden yellow with small white foam head. Aroma is fresh fruity, mango and banana. Taste is difficult to define but going to soft fruits, peach, mango. Good aftertaste. (Utrecht 201303)

Intenso color giallo effervescente con uno spesso cappello di schiuma bianca. Aroma pungente, speziato con sentori di banana, bucce di agrumi, lievito e caramello; gusto dolciastro, mieloso, anch’esso speziato e leggermente erbaceo. Corposa, frizzante e piacevolmente strutturata, una Saison aromatica irrobustita dall’alcool che fa invidia a molte altre!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pours a pale yellow, huge frothy head with great retention. Plenty of diacetyl on the nose. Also smells alcoholic, funky, spicy, banana, apple. Moderate carbonation, soft and creamy palate. Great balance of sweet, sour, bitter flavors, with loads of soft fruit, Dupont funk, herbal flavors, and belgian yeastiness that give it a distinctive banana overtone. No one aspect really pushes into the realm of greatness, but everything comes together nicely to make an above average saison. Lackluster, but solid.

Cloudy yellow coloured beer with a white head and lots of sediment. Fresh yeasty and fruity aroma, flavour is yeasty with a medium body and a bitter aftertaste. Good brew! (Corked Bottle 75cl)
