4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. A hazy medium blonde beer, with a large, frothy, slightly fizzy and lacing. mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread/grain, hay), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, grass), lighty to moderately yeasty (barnyard, dust), with notes of dandelions, lemon, pepper, clove, some honey. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness, very lightly alcoholic. Stunniong flowery aroma, with not excessive honey, a good pepperiness and some funk. The taste grows sips after sips and you beg for another one. Although it doesn’t reach IMHO the stellar level of Anna and Arthur, still it reveals the skills and talent of one of the greatest Saison brewers outside of Belgium and not only.

Une douce bête de floralité bien levurée avec une présence en bouche exemplaire et parfaite pour une buvabilité apocalyptique.
