Hazy cloudy in the glass. The beer is smooth and fresh sourish. Nice Farmhouse flavour, sourish yeasty, smooth. The body is fresh, smooth. Hints of yeasty sweetness with funky sourish farmhouse aroma. On the tongue remains a funky yeasty sweetish-sour and smooth-mild aroma. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Belgiuminabox. Hazy gold. Thin, white head. Sweet malts, akin to pilsner malts. Some funk. Some lemon. Light smoke. Taste is tart. Light dry. Soft, airy palate, which is the best element of this beer. Finishes dry, and light bitter. On the whole, though, this is utterly underwhelming.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle at home, 2nd batch. It pours a clean honey color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mild sweet mild funk an medium tart, with notes of yeast, spices, grapefruit, citrus, grass and violets. Big grapefruit notes. Taste is medium sweet and medium acidic, with more grapefruit, yeast, grass, bread, citrus. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, really tasty and refreshing, one of the best of recent Fantomes, a legit very good saison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewwed from notes. While I’ve had both batches of 5 Sciences, I will rate the 2nd batch since the 1st batch had the obvious infection problems. Opened at Fantomefest 2014, thanks Patty. Pours a cloudy orange in color with a finger and a halfs worth of off-white head. The nose is comprised of dank herbal notes, the type I remember in Sante! 14. In other words, this smells like weed...really dank weed at that. The flavor also has the weed present, but it’s also complimented by floral notes, spices, and some citrus peel. Light mouthfeel, good carbonation, and a moderate finish. Really happy this beer was remade after the first batch because the first batch was kind of a disaster.
