3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75l bottle. Looks really nice this with a orange cloudy body hidden under a big lasting and heavy lacing white head. Lots of fruity yeasty elements on the nose. Mild citrus, some zest, a little bit of lime and traces of hay. Somewhat sweet and definitely good smelling. Lots if strange flavors! It has a nice oily feeling in the mouth and it’s about average on the carbonation. Lots of yeast, ester and acidic apples. Wood also detected, like a cider that has been corked. Not bad, just different. Herbal continuance, some traces of sour strawberries, mild passion fruit and black currants with white pepper and a little alco hint in the finish and aftertaste. Definitely fruity but also it’s somewhat phenolic. Good. 12.10.2014

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Ezo Beer. A beautiful brassy orange with a rich full fruity aroma: plum, raisins, peaches, really full aroma that intrigues. Full bodied, bready, malty, sweet but sharp and fruity raisins, plums, sherry sweet. Much more like a rich belgian than a saison. I quite liked it.

This was a delicious beer/wine hybrid saison. Champagne aroma..little funky. Touch of hops..sour/sweet, almost champagne-like flavor. Good carbonation...very nice and refreshing at a BBQ. Caraway gives just a hint on the tongue at the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (75cl). Hazy pale orange colour. Inch-thick white head, quite good retention. Aggressively fruity-acidic nose with apple, pear, grape, yeast, cumin. Medium body, average carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel (dangerously so, considering the ABV). Fruity-spicy taste, fairly dry, lightly tart, nicely balanced. Bitter-tart finish. Spectacularly well-hidden alcohol.
