4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled from magnum bottle. Pours a clear gold with a nice white head and remarkable lacing. Aroma has notes of sweet pears and leather. Flavor is spicy and very floral, almost like a rose water, with juniper. There is a tartness that may have been imparted by wild yeast. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated. Exceptional farmhouse saison. Welcome this is a farmhouse - Phish.

This is basically a Belgian Ale, similar to 3 Monts or Grimbergen. Perhaps the acidicity is higher and the bitterness stonger but more brief. These taste like liquid baguettes.

The lack of alcohol taste was a good rate, espeacially with 7.5 %. Good head retention, and nice lacing. It was very drinkable and really nothing seemed to be off, but it just didn’t appeal that much to me.

Cloudy gold beer with a small grayish head which disappears quickly. Nose is yeasty, musty, and a little pear. Soft beer, slightly sweet malt flavor with little hop presence. Quick finish.

Sweetish, cellar-like, woody.

Very deep gold color. White long lasting head. Mild yeast and sour malt aroma with floral undertones. Mild carbonation with a fairly high level of sweetness for a blonde. Flavor is quite boring. For me it’s a nondescriptive mash of flavors with no strong notes or subtle tones. Cheers!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a filtered clear gold with a soft fading head. Aromas of bananas and flowery noble hops, and flavors of banana, green apple, lemon, and herbs. Medium body and maltiness leaves a nice light honeyish finish. Refreshing but still sweet.

Contrairement à l’ambrée qui m’avait décu par son amertume et le gout de houblon trop intense. Celle la est vraiment une bonne bignouse.

Het lijkt net of dat ik broccoli ruik. Echt een smerig biertje, niet weg te krijgen. Heel vlak.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 Bottle. Aroma is grassy and sweet. I was hoping that the taste would be better than the aroma but I was disappointed. The flavour is overly sweet with some bitterness. Medium body, with a dry finish in which some alcohol can be detected. Maybe it would be better if cellared for half a year.
