   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Foco. Pours a clear yellow orange appearance with a big, fluffy off white head. Plenty of perfume and white flowers in the nose with some lemon syrup, banana, and white pepper. Gooey and effervescent. Thick lemon-lime, pineapple flavor. Mild spice. Moderately high sweetness. Slightly artificial flavor with a touch of booze on the finish. Disappointing.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of taffy, gum, fennel seed, plastic, celery. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, syrupy/oily/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. A weird, mostly unpleasant beer. Aroma has a couple nice things but the plastic, celery, artificial taffy-ish sorta notes tend to dominate. Those dirty aspects carry through to the mouth experience in the finish, and the mouthfeel is slick and syrupy, just not enjoyable. Looks nice, but that’s about it. This brewery has seemingly lost its way in the past several years.

Bottle. This is a lovely Saison a bit on the sweet side but very easy drinking stuff.

stoutnick (620) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2014
Cloudy straw colour. Aroma is very mild citrus character. Taste is lovely tropical fruit - lychee, banana. Nice tartness. Abv not very apparent but then this was a well aged bottle. Sweetness on finish. Nice one.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2014
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.

Oldmanriver (53) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2014
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.
