4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aroma of spicey malt, and perhaps honey; perhaps a bit medicinal. Hazy golden orange, but not a deal of head. Very dry, considering it has honey. Something of a herbal flavor; perhaps the honey carried a flavor with it. Nicely fizzy on the tongue, makes me want to pucker. Finish of yeast and hops? Really very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2002. Hazy gold. Giant, fizzy, white head seems to be growing from a multitude of reinforcements rushing up from the depths of the glass. Cool picture on the label. Nose: grainy malt, crisp hops, honey, flowers, incense, light fruits, and some musty barn funk. Smells great. Flavor: all of the above, toffee in the middle, estery throughout, some sourness towards the end. Very dry finish, lightly sweet and funky aftertaste. Medium, balanced body drinks very easy. Great saison. Better than 3.51.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Den Tatoverede Enke, RBESG Pub Crawl, August 2005. Cloudy blonde appearance. Very perfumed with a strange cosmetic edge. There’s a hint of barnyard but I don’t find that and the perfumed honey easy bedfellows. And I found it rather sweet. Not really my scene.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This golden ale poured with a generous white head, eliciting a sweet malty aroma. The flavor is quite mellow and slightly fruity, with a hoppy more bitter finish. A pleasant fermented honey flavor developed as the beer warmed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy dark yellow body with a great, frothy head that lasts a long time. Full aroma: lots of spices, slightly yeasty and much wheat. Mellow, light flowerery flavor, hints of citrus. A little bit thin, but overall very refreshing. The honey is a nice touch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden pour with substantial, frothy head - lots of carbonation (but it is soft on the palate) - musty aroma, with very apparent honey, orange, various wildflowers - the flavor is not as heavy on the honey as the aroma suggests - starts pretty sweet, tasting like honey and oranges, but a hop bitterness, dryness, and delicate floral character settle in to balance things out - the finish gets a little thin, but this is a subtle and enjoyable beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught: Golden coloured. Hazy. Dense white head. Banana, sweetness and yeast in the aroma. Flavour is fruity and yeasty with some light spice characters. Is well balanced and quite easy to drink. Is quite citric and fruity in the end. I’m not usually a great fan of saisons and definately not honey in beers, but this is actually quite pleasing.
