3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is my favorite offering from this brewery. I prefer the heavily hopped, well-attenuated interpretation of saison over the spice teas that are usually done by this brewery. This one has a nice aromatic and palate dryness that makes it dangerously drinkable at 8% ABV. Before I knew it, I was at the end of the bottle and craving some more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle bb12/2014, Geers. Reviewed from memory upon clearing a dreg-stained & extra yeast-cultured bottle in the cellar. - - Cheese of mushy-fleshed fruits (melon, peach, pear, strawberry) slowly grilled on an extinguished open fire set the volatile stage for an conflict-laden pantomime of esters and brett. Old citrus to the rescue, dirty yeast and syupy wild honey to escalate tension. Against that backdrop, I did not get much of that ball-busting bitterness, some alcohol. A faux-naïf masterpiece and possibly a conscious? provocation of all palates raised on teutonically clean bore-brews.
