Estery and fruity aroma. Fruity, estery and citrusy taste. Dry finish. Good carbonation for the style.

9th July 2016: on-tap in the Napar Brewpub with the RBESG guys. Deep, hazy orange pour, off-white top. Another citrus flavoured brew, this one had some sourness and a spicy overlay: no farmyard used in this Saison, or at least I could not detect one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spanish saison (never thought a thing like this could actually exist a few years ago) with vultures on the label, promising aromas of orange and lemon. Thinnish, off-white, milky head with dense edge but quickly breaking in the middle; colour is an autumn sunset, beautifully warm pale orange, lightly hazy with a ’fog’ of yeast suspended in it. Aroma of Grand Marnier, yoghurt, freshly baked cake or biscuit especially when warming up, some FFF (freshly fermented farmland), some blood orange and pink grapefruit mixed in but not strongly so, limoncello, strong overripe mango, buttermilk, old toast, sundried tomato, hints of shallot, bourbon, overripe apricot, wet leaves, canned pineapple. Sweet and sour onset, fruity with accents of passion fruit, mango, peach, sweet grapes, orange flesh, soft carbo, smooth and supple but notably light body with a slightly resinous caramelly maltiness to it, honeyish even, a little bit nutty as well but all rather subdued, while a marmelade- and limoncello-like subtle sweetness overlies it all and extends into the finish, where it is accompanied by herbal and softly leafy hop bitterness and a dash of warming, but well-hidden alcohol. Not unpleasant, but a tad too sweet for the style. Almost every craft brewer in the world seems to attempt saison nowadays, a challenging phenomenon considering there is no real ’standard’ for the style even in Belgium; Dupont is often quoted though, and if their beers are to be considered a guideline for the style, then they should be more hoppy, more earthy and a lot more dry than this one. Not a great success in terms of ’truth to style’ but a pleasant and well-crafted ’orange beer’ with pleasant exotic accents nonetheless.

[9/22/15] Draught at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Hazy deep golden. Lovely aroma of funk, fruitiness, earth. Sourish flavor, fruity and funky. Medium-bodied. Really nice and refreshing.

Draft at Beer Temple. Sour orange and grapefruit peel. Orange glowing color. Medium body. Unbalanced for a saison with too much sourness.

Bottle. Well, this had expired, although there is no such thing in brews. I was not too happy with this - no saisonlike taste, a bit sour but quite drinkable.
