3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at Isobels, Eardisley, Herefordshire, Saturday 31st October 2015. Looks lovely and spritzy on the pour, lovely clean, zippy bubbles. Aroma fresh but also Belgian, clean, a touch of spice and orange peel. This is fresh in the mouth also, a seriously confident, classy beer. I like it but a big bottle on my own after a few beers was hard going. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A soft, spicy dough, accented with light oranges and with a gentle nudge of wine grapes. The light honey brew cascades into the glass and a soapy white head rises to two fingers above the surface.The aroma is mirrored in the flavor and the carbonation is as delicate as the rest of the experience. Refined and elegant and even the finish screams class. Very nice. I’ll be happy to open another when the need for a subtle nightcap.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: hazy pale straw with one finger of loose white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: apple and stone fruit, lemon zest, white pepper and clove, light tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: mild sweet, moderate bitter, mild peppery spice, mild tart. (8/10) Palate: light body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry short duration finish. (5/5)
A solid saison marred only slightly by a hint of brown apple in the flavour. The head and lacing could stand to be a little prettier, too. Still a very good example of the style, though! (18/20)
