3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a super hazy golden orange/yellow color with a white head. Aroma is of strawberries??, sweet malt, almost leathery notes, hay, barnyard, bright fruit esters, black pepper, wheat and floral notes. The flavor follows the nose with that strange strawberry flavor, along with the wheat, floral notes, bright fruit esters, sweet malt, leathery notes, hay and barnyard. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a nice and different (or traditional I guess) Saison.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
75 cl bottle. Big thanks to Dany himself for sending this at no cost when my original ones ordered from Belgoklubbem were infected. Hazy apricot color, big white head with yellow hints quickly settling that leaves plenty of lacings. Complex, fruity, tast nose with citrus, flowers, hay, dry white wine, red berries, funkiness. Taste is round with low carbo, very juicy, velvet tounge. Obvious hints of orange at first, then a slightly more tart citrus like hint, white vine, dry without loosing the roundness. Wow, what a peculiar one. Lots of fruitiness. It’s very different from other saisons but still feels like THE blueprint for a saison at the same time. Love it!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Olfactif: Du foin et des herbes aromatiques, algues, varech.
Goût: Beaucoup d’herbes, menthe poivrée avec une petite amertume d’herbes fraiches en finale. Légère acidité. Texture de mince à moyenne. Une vrai saison tout à fait conforme au style. Me rappelle un peu la Saison Dupont.
