Very spicy with vinegar aroma. Taste of lemon. Does give impression of Belgian tripple. Has a sour taste but not unpleasant. Bit bubbly on the tongue. Need to let settle in the glass. Good after dinner beer.

Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, yeast and spices. Taste is medium sweet leading to a yeasty finish. Damn good!

A fine example of the style!
Beautiful light golden colour, tight white head, farmyard and zest aromas, tart, dry, a little malty, lemony bitterness and a long finish.
Great food beer!

0.75cl Bottle: brought to the Belgian Beer Board Pre-Brugge beer festival bottle exchange by Filip, thanks mate.
An Australian Saison, what a surprise to see this in Brugge.
I loved it.
Misty golden body (it had been poured a few times before I got my hands on it) with a white covering, I managed to get just under a half-pint into my glass: didn’t want to appear greedy did I?
Yeasty farmyard; proper Saison smells in other words. Sour yeastiness in the mouth along with a sweet undertone that blend together giving a truly memorable experience and a wonderful taste.
So different to anything else at the bottle swap: some cracking brews, but this and the Ommegang 3 Philosophers really stood out for me in their classiness, even though they are worlds apart in styles.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a golden straw colour with a lively 3cm of head, gradually fading. Sour and zesty barnyard aromas arise with a touch of wood. Tart flavours with mentioned sour and zest, also a banana aftertaste. Also a minimal toast malt in there somewhere. Nice full carbonation and good on the palate.

375ml bottle. Very frothy with a mountainous head of compact white foam above a hazy apricot coloured beer. Tart sour aroma with a flavour to match. Very lively and zingy in the mouth and it certainly wakes up the taste buds.

Excellent clear and sparkling appearance with a light, sweet, simple aroma. Taste is a tad bit of citrus, lots of floral and moves to honey. Palate is musky with some yeasty flavours. Overall, a very nice saison.

330ml on tap. Pours hazy golden amber. Some thin head. Smells wood, vinegar, leather. Tastes hoppy, some sultana alcohol, nice saison.
