3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 07/2013, courtesy of rosenbergh, 20121208) The beer poured muddy orange and cloudy. Its head was very small and white. Aroma had spices, sourness, malts and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with quite high carbonation. Flavours were spices, sourness, sweetness, hops, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy, sweet and bitter. A quite nice saison with a bit too much sweetness for my taste.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Volcanic opening. Pours hazy with a large fading head.
Nose shows doughy yeast, spicy phenols, faint floral notes and spicy hops. Also faint sweet malt.
Very dry flavours; doughy yeast and spicy phenols followed by an almost harsh finish and accompanying alcohol.
Way too much carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, semi gusher. Hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma of lemon pudding, cloves, vanilla, honey, cracker bread. Sweet with some tangy lemon/ lime flavours, herbs and spices at the bitter but just short of dry finish. Too much bitterness and spice emphasis for my liking in this sort of thing. (Added) And as it warms there’s an unpleasant blood-like taste at the end too.
