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.

Bottle shared. The beer is a clear gold color with a big white head of foam. The aroma is grassy and herbal, with a bit of lemony zest. The taste has mild fruity, and grassy bitterness. More hoppy than anticipated. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful hazy yellow color with large, creamy, white head. Aroma has yeast esters but very fresh ones, not the cloying kind. Taste starts with yeasty notes, banana, clove, bubblegum, hay and some lemon. Mouthfeel is soft but has good carbonation as well. A very good example of a well made, traditional saison.
