3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Special edition of Saison d’Erpe-Mere made in 2008, with an off-white head and golden blond colour with ochre hue, hazy. Aroma of bitter honey, bread, apple, grapefruity green hops; dry taste with subdued fruitiness, some citrus freshness, malty with a strong, resinous, green hop bitterness which ensures a long finish and through which some noticeable, wodka-like alcohol also pierces.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to bartlebier. Pours a golden straw with fine bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma has a slight lemon citrus, some hop spice, Alcohol on top of a sage sprinkled malt cracker. Has a big white fluffy head that sticks. On the palate is a slight chewy banana, lemon, citrus, and transforms into a white pepper, dried grass and alcohol heat that dissolves into a sweet tang on the sides of the tounge. Not a bad beer but the Alcohol dominated way too much for me to thoroughly appreciate.
