3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från Belgoklubben. Halmgul och kraftigt grumlig vätska. Viskositeten är nästan trögflytande. Ananasdoft och peppar. Smaken alldeles för tunb. Torr munkänsla med pepprigt avslut.

1.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ home 20140619. Pours slimy, cloudy and golden. So ropy and slimy the CO2 barely reaches the surface. Aroma is delicious with dough, citrus, banana, spices and pepper, a little barnyard. Just awesome aroma. Taste is of course a great disappointment, you get a hint of the delicious components from the aroma but they barely get through the nasty slime. Poured it down the drain unfortunately. Have another bottle, will save it for a year or two and see if it goes away.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to Niels ! Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with two fingers of white fizz. Lots of grassy herbal complexity on the nose with nice doughy malt backbone. Palate opens up with some rustic earth and nuanced herbalness that rolls into a unripe pineapple, stonefruit pit, lemon rind and floral grass. Really layered and complex yet refreshing and chuggable all at the same time ! Love to have this on the shelf in Maine !

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A: ripe apples, banana, bitter, acidic, yeast.
A: cloudy yellow reminiscent of apple juice, quickly dissipating head, a very special pour looks a bit slimy, but in a good way.
T: acidic, bitter, hint of fruit, apple, citrus, dry and bitter.
P: Medium carbonation, has a thick slimy mouthfeel hard to describe but in a good way, only thing I’ve ever had that came close to such a mouthfeel is probably "långfil". dry bitter finish.
O: an excellent saison, very unique, probably the best looking bottle ever.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Spritzy lemon, very light mouthfeel, the yeast feels very different in this one, and the character it gives is very different, weak bubblegum, but a lemony tartness and a quite strong hay feel to it.
