4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 75cl bottle Geers, 2012. - Cloudy, creamy saison with full sweet notes and a decent amount of cultivated funk, full of citrus/grape and orange zes flavour. Powerful, original, tasteful saison sensation! //Rerate 2014, after a few 2013 and 2014 bottles, sourced fresh from Erpe-Mere. Quite a bulky, aromatic saison, packed with rich ale flavours, managing a well-attenuated saison palate despite its near 7%. fresh 2014 bottles had a prominent almond malt character and lively spring meadow grassiness in the upfront aroma. Love revisiting this, and its affordability makes that easy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2015:
Se si parla di saison non posso che pensare a Glazen Toren.La birra si presenta bionda con un bel cappello di schiuma bianca. Aromi leggeri di pane, vaniglia, pepe e decisi aromi di luppolo con un pompelmo in bella evidenza. La bevuta scorre con un perfetto equilibrio nonostante l’abbondante luppolatura. La birra è secca e beverina grazie alla carbonazione abbondante e il corpo leggero.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First saison of the patio season, oh how I missed this! Pours a hazy light golden or maybe yellow with a thick white head that leaves ultra nice lacing. Nose is of spices, fruits and cereals. Pretty much what you expect from a saion. Taste is lightly sweet but also moderately bitter, offers some wheat, pepper and fruits. Body is medium and carbonation high and prickly. Just a hint too sweet for my taste but other than that it is pretty much a classic saison. Nice!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Saison scolastica, buona. Rustica, con frutta, acidità e paglia al naso. In bocca paglia,Bollicine,tocco rustico quasi di formaggio, acido, amaro erbaceo e qualche spezia. Buona birra, scorrevole,alcol inavvertibile.
