4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2016 Bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a large off-white head. Aroma has hay, citrus, white bread, crackers and some barnyard. High carbonation medium bodied dry taste. Slighly sour taste with white bread, pear, lemon zest, white pepper,cereal, hay, apricot and grapes. Aftertaste has some dry leather as well along with even more citrus.
2016-03: previous score: 3.5. Now cellared for nearly two years. It’s still extremely fresh with a champange like, yeasty character and greater complexity then when fresh. Nice notes of gooseberries and almonds in addition to above.

Bottle thanks to my son Joakim. Hazy yellow beer with a rich lasting airy white head. Grassy hop aroma, citrus, grapefruit, some dandelions. Grassy dandelion flavor, spicy, yeast notes. Hoppy grassy floral finish. A bit harsh but still drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 0.75l @ RBNG 2014. This is a blurry quite golden looking one with a nice super lacing medium sized bright white head. Smells of white wine, Belgian yeast, lots of floral nuances, a little bit of corn sweetness and faint lemony sourness in the back. Nice aroma. Tastes nice also. Not sour, more Belgian infused white candied sugar and Belgian yeast. It has a above average carbonation level and a light oily almost sticky mouthfeel. Floral flavor also. Quite sweet and triple like in a way. All in all a good one. 15.02.2014

@Basunen: frisk och fin. Belgisk smak av krydda, jäst och citrus. Lite vitvinstoner tycks också hittas. Läskande.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours tiny hazy golden with a big frothy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some trace on the glass. Smell is slightly spicy and slightly phenolic with crackers, white bread, pears, hay, dry soil, pepper corns and hints of lemon juice and alcohol. Taste is tiny sour, tiny bitter, slightly spicy and slightly phenolic with white bread, pepper corns, dry soil, leather, pear skins, granny smith apples, hay, lemon zest, orange zest, cloves, fresh ginger, dried pine needles and hints of tummy warming alcohol. Mouthfeel is dry, tiny tart, slightly spicy astringent, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny bitter and phenolic with white bread, pepper corns, dried ginger, dry soil, hay, apple skins, pear skins, orange zest, dried pine needles and alcohol. The high alcohol content impairs the refreshing nature of the beer making it work against itself. Quite good still tough...

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(backlog ZBF 04/2013 - moved rating from previously entered Eindejaar to Lentebier.) 75cl bottle, poured and sold in pretty spring-yellow wrapper as "Lentebier" saison at the same 9%. sweeter esters bringing fruitier compote notes to the fore than usual in a saison, while still keeping some dryness, astringent aftertaste. As balanced, spectacularly modest acquired taste a standout beer, albeit with odd ABV for a spring beer, at ZBF for me. //new 2014 bottles from source and won @ZBF tombola: still very smoothly drinkable and dry for a yeastier 9% saison, with an ideal white asparagus pairing recommendation. Peach-swollen pollens, apple, fuller mf.
Note to mod: this is commonly knosn and distributed as Glazen Toren Lentebier, now without the Saison d’Erpe-Mere add.
