4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured in a perfect Ommegang glass at Uptown Republic. Golden hue with a little less than expected lacing. Visually quite appealing. Aroma is the quintessential representation of a saison/farmhouse style. Sweet balanced with bitter (slight) and an undertone of alcohol. One of the best beers available. Go out and get this right away.

355ml bottle from Ninaís Mini Market. Near clear golden body. Two-finger sized, white head, slowly fading, laces well. A floral touch to fresh citrus nose followed by a fruity taste of orange and lemon, with a little spiced tartness to it. Smooth bittersweet ending. Mouthfilling, well-made and refreshing (hotel room, Edinburgh 11.08.2013).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, coriander, and cloves. Taste is sweet with a slight bitterness, fairly well balanced. Light body, thin on the palate, lively carbonation. Not my kind of a beer but very nice nonetheless.
