Pours a blonde colour, taste is yeasty and spicy. Another good Belgian ale, which I would have again

McWorta (662) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 9, 2013
Sparkling deep golden in colour showing a rocky frothy white lasting head. Aromas of sweet hop and alcohol develop on the nose combined with notes of straw, barnyard and farm/field dust. The texture is light lively slick with a rather full body encompassing mainly sweet notes with some light bitter ones on the lips and post taste development. Good lacing around the glass. The finish is lasting and well balanced though has some notes of metallic aromas at the very end.

EddyBeer1 (926) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2013
Dorée claire, pétillance moyenne-forte, col très fin. Légèrement métallique, céréales assez présentes, petite sécheresse, mini amertume sur la fin avec un peu de coriandre. Simple mais vraiment fraîche et agréable.

psilosophy (513) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2013
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée, léger trouble , mousse abondante de belle tenue. Une bière assez sèche qui n’est pas sans rappeller la Triple Kaarmeliet mais avec des arômes plus fruités (pêche, abricot; melon). Carbonnation sympa. Trouvée à Roby - Menin.

GSAP (526) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2014 Wat fruitschil en kaneel in aroma. Smaak is meloen, maar niet een heel rijpe, kaneel en bosbessen, nasmaak wat donkerder. Overal een licht lijm spoor. Allemaal wat licht, niets wat opvalt, zelfs zijn middelmatigheid. #2 bij BBQ smaakt de Saxo meer in balans, geen lijm, wel zoetheid. Ook her aroma is meer richting perzik. Aroma plus 1.

Fresh Belgian blond beer with quite a lot of CO2. Has notes of aroma hops and some pear.

Wonderful Belgian blonde strong ale. Not too overpowering in the abv. Smooth and creamy with nice citrus melon palette. Pours beautifully.

Saxo has a very thick, foamy, white head, an initially clear, golden appearance, with tight bubble streams and some lacing. The beer clouds up once the bottom contents are swished and poured in. The aroma is of sweet, sugary malt, some fruit, like figs, and grain. Taste is of those elements, with candy sugar, grain husk, champagne, and some underlying alcohol. Bitterness is present across the sip, as well. Mouthfeel is medium and the bubbles are very prickly. Saxo finishes dry, sweet, and fairly refreshing. Overall, this is a most excellent beer. RJT
