3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ Magasin, Aarhus. Pours a muddy pale orange with a smallish frothy white head. Aroma is herbal, lots of honey, basil and slight pepper. Mouthfeel is rather crisp and rather dry. Wonderful flavour with lots of herbs, bananas, oranges, pine, beech leaves. The peppery yeastiness is subdued compared to other saisons, but this is definitely more fruity and honey-like than others. Great!

Bottle: pours a cloudy orange with a whispy white head and lots of little carbination bubbles, aroma is fully of sweet honey, wheat and yeast, taste is dry and slightly sweet, a slight fizzyness to the mouthfeel. I’m having this with x-mas dinner and it looks like we made a good choice. A very good saison.

Bottiglia da 25cl all’Exultate, abbinata ad un buon piatto di pastasciutta (penne) coi funghi. Versa torbida ambrata con scarsa schiuma; corpo importante ma non appiccicoso come la Bloemen per direne una, il miele č tradito piů dal sapore che dall’aroma un po’ vago seppure dolcissimo. Buona, ma in effetti non ne avrei bevuto un altro bicchiere!

750 ml. corked bottle. Hazy gold with a persistent and substantial frothy white head that leaves good lace. Definite honey based aroma with some floral character, toasty grain, citrus, and even some light clove perhaps. LIght to medium body with lively effervescence, very clean mouthfeel. Sweet honey flavor up fornt, followed quickly by a a mild acidity and sourness, and a dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caged and corked. Very bright golden orange with a taying fizzle of tight foam topping. Very tart aroma -- flowery and sweet. The drink is quite cloying, glazed with a thick slice of honey and an extremely dry finish. (#3202, 11/14/2007)

Bottle. Sweet nose, bubble gum and cotton candy. Intensely active carbonation and sediment. It’s like a party in the glass. Golden with a huge frothy white head. Very tasty, candysweet but balanced, some alcohol presence. A thick vinuous body that thins out a bit at the end.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Intensely carbonated with a soapy head that doesn’t end. Spicy nose. Peppery, light, honey sweet. Syrupy, palate. The honey only seeps in behind the flavors, and during the finish. Upfront taste was spice, grains, light fruits. Dry finish with a hint of honey.
