Bottle of the 2007. Light fruitiness and grains - still surprisingly bright and vivid for its age - just a hint of dustiness . Lightly sweet up front with a dry finish and a pleasant light astringency.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle at Moeder Lambic, courtesy of Arne and Cameron, thank you gentlemen! Hazy golden color, large fluffy off white head. Initial aroma of phenols clears quickly and becomes a nice peppery hay scent. Malts dominate the taste, with a decent amount of spice. Very nice body. Overall a decent saison.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tart fruity aroma, some spices, and some sweet malt. I find the o rely sweet malt is taking away from the light, bright fruity tartness. The malts I find seem to muddle the beer quite a bit. The finish is dry and quite metallic with some minerals also.
