UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 Cloudy yellow with a small white head.
Complex aroma with herbs (rosemary and sage), orange peel, mango and grassy hops.
Dry bready malt flavur with spices and hops, and some pumpkin-like nuttiness. Fruity notes of peach and pineapple. Very herbal and quite bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2014 750ml bottle (Porvoo Harvest/Dark Beer Festival 2007) (5:2:7:3:14=3.1)
hazy rich yellow, thin to no head. light sweet malt and spicy aroma. quite lively in the mouth. a good sweet malty body, but a wickedly peppery hoppiness quickly comes over. A tad alcoholic.
Rerate: 375ml bottle (Schrammi Keller, Tartu) (7:4:6:3:13=3.3)
Totally massive aroma - it’s belgian tripel exploding all over the place, the glass cannot contain it at all, has the perfumey aspects of a tripel, but there’s a lovely saisony aspect, a spicey sharpness, too - that’s the Dupont terroire which makes their saisons so good. Taste initially has quite an alcoholic kick, but after a few sips that just fades away. It’s a lovely back-to-its-roots belgian ale, has a nice perfumey grain and noble hop component, but the saisony grunge is there too. Finish just has a light white pepperiness to it, to accompany the sweet grains. Shame about the alcohol, it’s in that Le Trappe territory, it could be called a quad at this boost.

Bottle @ home. Yellow / orange color, large white head. Decent smell, nice taste, good carbonation and medium body. Better then expected, feared it would be winey but it’s more like a tripel.
