4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Bottle. Pours a pear juice color, very hazy, large sediments. Aromas of white wine grapes, Emerthaler cheese, Rochefort cheese. Real nice. Taste is mellow and very well balanced, sightly citric but mostly creamy. Dried citrus fruits, hint of Rochefort again. Mellow and agreeing aftertaste. Not bad, would definitely recommend this as appetizer to a nice summer meal.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Hazy golden body, almost milky, with a towering fluffy white head.
Aroma: Slightly yeasty with some phenols, a tad peppery, with prominent lemon aromas, though not out of balance. The aroma is a bit mellow, but it’s enjoyable and nice for the style.
Taste: Very nicely balanced. Hints of malt with balanced lemon and peppery phenols. The spice, malts and citrus are nicely balanced.
Palate: Creamy body, but definitely lacking in bubbles on the tongue.
Overall: I feel that I would like this much better if the carbonation were there. It’s odd though, it has a huge head but the body is just lacking because of the lack of carbonation. Really nicely balanced though, if this were available in cans I’d pick this up through the Summer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared at the lake. Hazy medium gold colour with an enormous and messy white head. Aroma is yeasty, hay, with a touch of dried apricot. Fairly malt heavy, pale and biscuity, but lacking brightness. Again the dominant fruit ester for me here is dried apricot, and there is very little in the way of spiciness or hops. Disappointing overall, given the hype.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light yellow orange with a big head. Wheat malt, some bubblegum, very spritzy, and very estery. Taste is a bit all over the place, alcohol is present, and a weird aftertaste together with an alcohol feel, it’s very ester and yeast dominant.

Jaune brillant avec une énorme mousse blanche. L’arôme du levure, les épices, et fruits. Très bonne! Le goût est très similar et un peu sucré.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Clear golden colour with huge, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Yeasty aroma with a spicy, peppery touch, fruity, malty background, hints of mirabelle, lychee, prosecco. Taste is dry, slightly fruity with a vegetable touch, gherkin, melon; prickling carbonation. Very refreshing, perfect aestival appetiser.

Big cloudy yellow pour, not a lot of foam at first but tops up three fingers or so towards the end of the pour, looks great in my hashtag proper glassware... Traditional saison smell, hints of lemon, mild sweetness, grass, yeasty, very nice all around. Taste, dry, yeasty, lemon, grass, well rounded and very tasty!
