3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is hazy golden colored and pours a large white head, with a lot of carbonation. The aroma is a nice palate of hops, citrus fruits, grass, spring flowers and some yeast. The taste medium bodied and light sweet, with nice tones from the citrus fruits. This changes into a medium bitterness and dryness, with a lot of hops. Very refreshing though. The finish is medium bitter, dry and very refreshing.

No idea where the bottle came from.
Pours golden with a large 2 finger head...even when poured well! Aroma of lemon, orange, pine, banana, wheat....Initial malty taste, light grains, then grass, hay, then wheat, lemon, orange, banana...then some pine and a wee kick on the abv at the end. Good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33cl. Hazy light yellow with a huge white top that stays. Citrus aromas are most prominent when the beer reaches the nose, but hops can be recognized too. When tasted an immediate dry, bitterness kicks in with a sour touch. The bitterness fades somewhat and switches sides with sourness. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from my Dutch Secret Santa, thanks! Pours with a massive white head, leaving lacing all down the sides of my glass. A very murky looking golden yellow beer. A very spicy and peppery nose, slight banana and bubblegum smell. Lemon zest is present on the tail end of the aroma. Taste is light on mouthfeel. Spicy upfront, a bit of barnyard funk, slight sweetness of hay. Very nice Saison. I love saison and this was a welcome treat.
