3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home, 29th June 2012. Hard to place the aroma, the beer pours a nice looking drink. Yeasty taste quite smooth, Saison is not my favourite style, this is more of a Saison than an IPA. It is refreshing and drinks below its abv. Would not have again though.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, yeast, pear and grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, yeast, earthiness and grapefruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering earthy finish. A decent Belgo IPA, but not a saison by any stretch of the imagination!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Slightly hazy pale golden with a small but frothy white head, good lacings. More phenolic and spicy than hoppy aroma, malty, fruity, whiff of grass. Taste is sweet malty, citrusy and spicy with notes of orange zest leading to a lingering bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a dense and lively white head leaving quite some lacework. Very spicy, fruity and yeasty nose. Medium body, a little initial sweetness, then a slight tartness. Typical spiciness from the Saison yeast and a distinct yeast character. The yeast dominates over the Citra here I’d say. Dry but not overly bitter finish. 270612

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy orange gold lasting thick white head. Yes Belgian saisony aroma, with some piney American hop. You know what? It’s got quite a good Belgian saison quality but with a tight as your ass American twist. I like the Belgian authenticity, but it lacks a touch of the true wildness of a Belgian beer. If anything its too perfect, too clipped. Tasty as hell. I enjoyed it, even though it is a bit too good. Bit of perfume on finish, Decent bitterness on finish. Yep, like this.
