2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 Rather recent 750mL bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of peach and orange peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation. Yet another try and still not a fan...barely even a saison in my book; too sweet without much finishing bitterness. Flimsy and watery mouthfeel. Appearance is excellent, though.

Très orangée ! Au nez, à la couleur, en bouche.
Très légère, on peut déplorer un manque de corps. Mais on reste sur une saison très aromatique (agrumes portant sur l’orange amère) et désaltérante.
Assez bonne longueur grâce au joli houblonnage à cru.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: hazy pale amber with one finger of fluffy light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: earthy barnyard funk, apples, citrus, stone fruit, grassy. (8/10) Taste: mild sweet, moderate bitter, mild tart. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lightly funky and lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Bitter and fruity, with a distinct earthy funk. Decently complex, without sacrificing drinkability. Hard to argue authenticity and pedigree here - a Franco-Belgian style, brewed in Belgium near the French border, using a recipe from the 19th century. A nice beer to savour and very much representative of the style. (16/20)

Pours a beige head. Spring and hops flavors. Clear orange colored. Dry and bitter in mouth but average taste with less aromas than hoped. Quite bitter balance.
