3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from 0.375l bottle @ Noma, Copenhagen. Served in a fantastic looking thin champagne glass. It just looks fantastic in this glass; Hazy blurry saison-looking orangish one with a enormou,s fluffy and everlasting white head that’s sticking heavily to the sides of the glass. The aroma also smells like a fantastic saison; It has this mild typical Belgian yeasty touch, leafs, something sweet clementine-zesty and hints of hay and white sugar. It’s average carbonated with a lovely silky and oily mouthfeel. It also tastes much like a good saison actually; medium to light Belgian-yeasty, it’s sweet without being sweet, has a fresh clementine/orange flavor and it ends with a hint of alcohol and grassy-spices. I really liked this (could be the setting and the mood playing in here, but I liked it a lot!) 07.01.2012

[my 8,000th rating]
Hazy pale yellow with a slightly green hue. Big, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has green grapes, green apple peel, esters, light lemony tartness, some wheat, soft alcohol. Green tea. Highish carbonation, fine dryish and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has yeast, apple peel, green olives, walnuts, esters, doughy and light biscuity malts, a touch of funk and a touch of cardboard. Softly warming finish with some soft bitterness. Goo, but there is a lot going on that doesn’t gel perfectly.
