3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy blonde white head. Really mild nose of yeast, hay malts and a little citrus. Taste of citrus and a little acidic zest bite, those hay malts show up, and some nice yeast, and the crisp white wine flavours shows up in the finish. Aftertaste is a fresh tangerine. Very mild beer, very, very drinkable. Should be sitting at the dock drinking this one. Very nice. Surprised at the wild ratings swings on this one. I think it’s a solid choice. ’Course unless I head down to Buffalo I’ll never have it again, thanks LCBO.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaska från SB. Ljust halmgul vätska med storbubbligt skum. Dofter av peppar, koriander och belgojäst. Sträv smak, det föreställer väl grapetoner antar jag. Detta blandas ihop med en jolmig sötma. Jänkarnas tolkning av en autentisk belgare, antar jag. Nä tvi vale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow, 1/11/15
Aroma: Aroma of saison/Belgian yeast, clean spice, clove, fruit, honey, earth, and a bit of bread
Appearance: Pours a clear gold color, looks similar to apple juice, with a fizzy, bright white head on top
Flavor: The grape comes out more in the flavor, and melds well with the yeast/spice flavors
Palate: Medium body, leaning light, fairly easy drinking considering the ABV, with a lively carbonation
This is pretty interesting. From the initial aroma I got no grape at all, but I got it more so in the flavor. It’s such a blonde beer, that you almost expect a different flavor. It’s kind of like a saison merged with a tripel, merged with something else, all together in one beer. The spice is probably the strongest component, with the sweetness second. The dryness really only show up on the finish, but it is there too. Not bad at all. Color this guy impressed. This one shows off some clear brewing knowhow.

A good friend shared his bomber with me. The aroma was nice, with notes of malt and yeast. You can definitely tell this is a Belgian. It pours a cloudy golden color with very little head. A good taste with Banana, cloves and spices. This finish was not as complex as I would have expected, it was a simple sweet grape taste. I did not enjoy this as much as the 19th anniversary.
