3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(North Coast Le Merle) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a teku, ABV 7.9%
Deep orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with a small and thin white head on top, witt average retention.
Nice fruity aroma, peaches, apricot, alcohol.
Taste is also fruity, peaches, light saison yeast, alcohol, sugar, apricot. Not much difference than a standard belgian blond imo.
Medium thin body, high carbonation.
Nice and drinkable but not what I would consider a saison.

12oz bb10/2015 (says Derer Import sticker overlabeling the original. Tip to importers: please don’t overlabel). - Good, thinner blonde pour, fizzy. Clean yeast-fruity nose without the phenolic fusels: pear and banana peel meet a hint of hop orchard exotics (apple blosom goes pineapple-sweet) and a whiff of US-domesticated brett aluminium. Nice and dry, grainy hay palate transporting measured out, even cautious doses of dry orchard fruits on a foregrounded Dupont yeast taste profile, -very clean Moinette Blonde tribute altogether, not a bad example. (7,9%: "super saison" or abbey style tripel?)

Delicious. Pours a bright coppery gold with a thick but porous white head that subsides to a mere layer of bubbles. Plenty of lacing splotches on the glass are welcome. The nose is fruity, floral, mildly spiced with a pinch of lemon zest and wheat malts. Coriander and leafy green notes. Mild toasty malts, light sweetness up front with a mild hop presence. Spice is well woven and balanced with the florality and estery notes. Love this brew!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a firm and off-white foamy head of medium size. Fruit-accented aroma, slightly overripe fruits, citrus, oranges, shades of cara-malt and yeasty spice. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Initially moderately sweet (cara-)malty and mildly fruity taste with an elegantly rising hops character, including, herbal-spicy and delicately resiny notes; medium-dry, mildly bitter hoppy and sweet malty finish. 12.V.15

Une bouteille partagée par Vincent. Une robe dorée avec un col blanc. Un nez de poivre avec du blé. Une bouche simple avec des saveurs de caramel poivré. Une drôle de saison qui à mon avis manque de ce caractère de saison.

Bottle. Pours scoop perish color with a good head and bits of lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit and bit of yeast. Taste of citrus, light fruit, slightly sweet and trace of yeast. Mild bitterness and finish is quite clean. Moderate body, has a crisp, clean feel, without being being overly funky and earthy. Enjoyable Easy drinker.
