4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
no surprises with the cloudy style, it’s not filtered. The nose is quite perfect, the hops are really strongs, and it’s impossible to avoid to drink it...
Palate is well balanced, alcool is not too much present, nor the spices, but of course as there is no spices... the flavours came from the hops, and they are really impressives... damn, that beer is quite perfect for bitter lovers...

Botella. Thanks Plovmand. Unclear golden with small floaties. Lovely fruity sweet malty aroma with some alcohol. Quite good a mouthfeel. Flavour of fruity hops with malt and a pleasant mild bitterness and a soft sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
TFODRBSG08 Courtesy of Plovmand. It’s a hazy light golden beer with floaties and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, sweetness and a touch of floral honey. The flavour has sweetness, notes of fruit, citrus, malt and it is pretty dry. The balance is outstanding and it’s a pleasure to drink.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle. Light, clean, golden color. Smells herbal, grassy. It starts light and bubbly, with some spice, brett, ripe apples, a little fruitiness. It finishes with some light hops and is quite crisp at the end. Very pleasant, good session.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 2008 Pre-GBBF Chris_o Shindig. Pale gold, clean white head with some good stick. Vanilla aroma, orange smoothie, fresh lemon. Light, very airy delicate citrus flavor—not the aggressive chewy IPA sort of citrus—the citrus quality of fresh yellow roses. Added to that some dry chalk and dill. Doesn’t immediately come across as hoppy, but a lingering hop presence between sips seems to indicate more than the initial flavor or aroma. A lovely, bright, perfectly poised saison.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ TFODRBSG, Ulfborg, 2008.
[thank you, plovmand]
I was seriously looking forward to this, and it surely didn’t disappoint. Pours hazy yellow with small floaties and a small, staying, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet at first, quite dry, notes of pine and apples. Fine, very dry mouthfeel. Flavour starts of sweet, with overripe apples, dry oakiness, brett notes and light pine. Super, super balance and a beer I could sip on for hours...
