4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with the insane Belgian head (3" on a careful pour), white with very small bubbles. Aroma a piquant high flowery lemon, typical Saison. Flavor an even and light salt balanced against a light body. Refreshing, well-behaved, plenty of depth, complexity and character. A sophisticated, playful and enjoyable Saison style beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of yeast, banana, light citrus - lemon/orange, a little straw and wheat, sweet, some spices. Flavor much the same. Hazy golden. Large fluffy white head, lasting with lace. Medium body, fat and creamy. Sweet, some spice, mild bitter finish. Really enjoyable. The ’Thrones" tie-in is novel (watching S3 finale tonight!) and it actually manages to be a great beer too.

Very light, smooth, and delicious. Yeast, wheat, citrus, a little sweetness. Fairly similar to the aroma.
I can taste the paradise.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. corked n’ caged bottle- Pours slightly hazy and lively golden with a two finger white head that never quite goes away. Aroma is Belgian, would love to have a regular old Duvel here, because it smells like I remember Duvel smelling, banana, yeast, beer. The taste is very smooth, creamy, delicious, banana is prominent, yeasty, lemon. Carbonation is high, body is medium and coats the mouth leaving the taste long after the swallow. Duvel is one of the best beers in the world, and this is a nice companion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden color with a moderate white white. Aroma is very yeasty, with little to no hop character. Taste is smooth, with no bitter or sour notes, and a very mild sweet profile. Yeast is apparent in taste as well. Fills the palate for a blonde ale, with a solid body and a oily mouthfeel. Decent beer for style, bot not sure it deserves the praise ratebeer has given it. Definitely had better blonde ales.

750ml bottle. Clearish golden with a foamy white head. Aroma is lots of spicy Belgian yeast esters, herbal tea, hay and honey malt.
