3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy golden with a fluffy white head. Spicy yeast aroma, with undertones of lemon, peach and vanilla. Lightly astringent flavour, with some nice tart citrus notes, also quite bitter and fruity. I should have liked this more, but I couldn’t help feeling that something was missing.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very pale straw colour with light thin white head.
Strong citrus, candy and bread aroma, with a good strong hit of Belgium yeast.
A nice heavy mouthfeel, champagne like carbonation. Sweet honey and citric, bubblegum, spicy herbs and cinnamon.
A nice dry finish, fine light hop bitterness.

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours a hazy gold with foamy head and fresh floral aroma. Vibrant blond flavours, aromatic, floral, a touch of spice all impeccably blended with a teasing dry bitterness on the finish. A beautiful blond.

A very good beer. A smooth drop. It reminds me of Brussels but should be in 1 l bottles. The logo is brand.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, light, but still quite bready, a lot of belgian yeast esters; bubblegum, citrus, very dry, easy going and nice - like a better Duvel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold, with attractive head. Extremely crisp, especially so considering the alcohol content. Clean balanced finish showing a little bit of farmhouse (acidic) bite. A great complement to cheeses.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl and 33cl bottles 2012-2013. Finally getting round to adding this enlightened drinker’s natural alternative to global (k)Leffe, finally a dry and aromatic, yet packing BE strong blonde that doesn’t coat its unsuspecting palates in cassonade graeffe and esters. Instead it approximates fruity notes (orange peel, banana, pear, peachy wheats) from the herbal-straw sides (saison peppers, grass), staying true to its saison pedigree. Delicious and polyvalent, a go-to classic I usually prefer over other classics like Duvel or Carolus fare.
