3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Un nez levuré et poivré qui laisse passer des notes de céréales mielleux. En bouche c’est rond avec une certaine sécheresse incomplète teintée de verdure. Une touche métallique engourdie momentanément la langue. Bon, sans plus.

On tap, Vices et Versa. Pours opaque gold with a white head. Wheaty nose. Body has intense clove and wheat, with a spicy, herbal finish. Palate remains pleasingly buttery throughout. Solid beer, if not stylistically overlapping with Belgian Whites.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle from trade. Exploded on opening, fountain of beer everywhere, probably 20% or more lost. Too bad, smells amazing. This was after more than 4 days of sitting in my cellar restfully. Ah well. What’s left pours a hazy medium gold, high carbonation (duh) with an ample cream head. Aroma is all over the room but in the glass it’s banana, light clove, rich honey sweetness, mild yeast, some bubblegum. Taste is rusty metallic in the first hit. Too bad, the other flavours of clove, banana, honey and gum get overwhelmed by this metal taste that just won’t go away. The underlying beer is quite lovely and perhaps less like a saison than like a Belgian Ale. Finish is slightly boozy, yeast mixed with gum and banana with that annoying metallic note still along for the ride. Damn, if it weren’t for the explosion and the metal I think I would rate this a fair bit higher.
