quite a sweet tangy sensation. The honey is very apparent. malty yet the carbonation has a soft feel to it. flavor of light citrus and dry malts

I really don’t like this one. The aroma is medicinal with perfume, yeast, honey, incense, and flowers. The appearance is hazy gold with a medium sized head. The flavor is sweet and malty but it has all the elements from the aroma. The palate is OK but this beer is almost nauseating to me.

rating from memory, had this on tap at hopleaf. poured golden hazy with big white head. nose is pretty funky with sweet honey notes. flavor is much of the same, a sweet saison style with yeast, honey, and spice. nice!

Cork says 2002. Bought in Belgium 2003. Golden hazy color. Crisp lively carbonation. Very dry body. Less honey than expexted and a bit dissapointing in taste. Average Saison. To old maybe?

Pours a cloudy golden color with floaties and a thin white head. Good aroma and flavor of honey, hops and yeast. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. Not one of the best offerings from this stellar brewery but still very interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (2005) and served in my Duval snifter: Pours a hazy yellow hue with a fluffy soft pillow that left very good lace. The aroma has a surprising fruity tartness vapour I was not expecting. I don’t get a lot of honey on the nose. Also detected cobweb yeast esters and an grassy hops character. The taste starts grainy and yeasty with a solid earthiness before a dash of acidic fruit (apple and lemon) cuts through and displays a touch of honey as well as some chamomile and grains of paradise. The mouth feel is lively but still soft except for the acidic twang. A solid brew but I am not sure if the bottle has been kept well. Will look at a re-rate at a later date.

Cork says 2005. Pours gold into a tulip. Fluffy white micro head slowly recedes with little lacing. Lemon and yeast aromas. Sour apple with caramel and honey. Dry, slightly bitter finish.

Lovely honey tones. A bit spicy, yet crisp and refreshing. A warming, gentle brew.

pours hazy yellow, smells nice with grassy aroma, taste great with honey, spice, and berry flavor, pretty smooth and refreshing. would like to have again.
