3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by plovmand.
Pours hazy dark amber with a tan head.
The aroma is very special - peppery, berries, spices and acidic.
Flavour is very special as well, peppery, vinegar, spices, berries and leather.
Over the edge brew, funny to taste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and dryish – lots of citrus aroma, spices – pepper. Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, berry-like acidity, pepper and dry spices, citrus. Finish is average, malty and dry, citrus and pepper. Strange beer, also unfortunately bit flat – pepper and citrus together just do not work for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one I have had in my cellar several years, thanks Fonefan. The color is mahogany-red and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of caramel and berries. The flavour is moderately sweet and has berry-acidity and notes of rowanberries, light raisin, caramel and the finish is sourish and dry. It’s actually quite nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle. Pours dark orange, amber with a medium brown head. Aroma is earthy, caramel and hints of spices. Taste is similar, with malt, roasted notes and a finish very spicy. Medium body with medium/high carbonation. It’s a quite strange and different beer, I don’t like too much this beer even if it is quite interesting in the different parts.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle. Pours a clear caramel rubish color with a big beige head. Good lacing and long lasting foam. Aroma is strong and complex: sweet caramel and toasted notes sorrounded by farmhouse yeasts flavors and spices. Taste is astonishing: initially it recalls a porter with toasted and chocolatey notes, then turns to the huge amount of sweet-acid flavors more typical for a season. Strong hints of spices and hot peppers in particular. The finish is sweet and peppered (it makes you more thirsty then before). Overall, this brew is huge, complex and original.

A: snifter. pours a richly, opaque tawny color with a pale orange/beige head with great retention rate and wonderful lacing.

T: wonderful sour lemonade taste. small hints of lactic acid but the citrus sours are the major player here. absolutely delicious.
M: the best part of this beer is how crisp and refreshing it is . great carbonation level and very relaxing mouthfeel.
D: even at 8%, this is a very drinkable saison, and delicious at that.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl Bottle, proefzolder Alvinne. Cork releases under much pressure, mystery mist coming out, but not a gusher whatsoever. Beer is very hazy yellow and has the most peculiar nose. It’s like orange marmelade upfront, followed by fresh cannabis buds, propelled by a certain spritzyness. MF however is much more still and flat. A bit overspiced probably. Small tanginess, saisonwise. Strange beer. But not bad.
