Bottle looks interesting. Beer in the glass golden, small head. Almost neutral, modest fruity aroma. Starts mild, a bit grasy-moldy, modest dry. Finish again milder. Modest dry aftertaste. A bit boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Slightly unclear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma feels smooth malty and light spicy with hint of fruit. Flavor is quite sweet, soft malty, spicy, yeast and some citric fruit and moderate bitterness. Quite OK and drinkable, but a bit sweet and not to typical Saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A fluffy, off-white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. Pale malts, some citrusy notes and a touch of wheat on the nose. Maybe a bit sweetish? Maybe a bit sweet in the flavor too, with a decent bitterness. Some citrus, wheat malt and maltyness in the flavor. Medium body, dry and pleasantly carbonated. Overall, too sweet, but I think it’s a nice beer anyway. 120430

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a big white lingering head. Nose has a lot of yeast and a bit of citrus. Taste is sweeter than expected, with some typical saison sour and surprisingly also the alcohol. Finish is fairly short but refreshing. Only the alcohol lingers. Nicely balanced, though not my favourite style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2012 Bottle, 6.8%. Good funky aroma, mildly citric. Almost clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour starts off sweet and spicy like a blonde. It is also a little funky and citric, but not as much as the aroma. On the sweet side, and to me more a blonde or weak triple than saison, but OK. After half the bottle, I think it is too sweet.
