Bottled 330ml ABM. Slightly hazy reddish-orange color, creamy off-white head. Strong white pepper and cardamon, a bit sour aroma. Medium-bodied. Pepper, cardamon, orange zest in the flavor. Quite spicey, almost Christmas beer like. Like more fruitier Saison, but not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle - shared by VastActiv - thanks!
Pretty much the same as the Galaxy we just had. Less interesting, but more back to back to basics. However, it’s too much a cookie-cutter saison - just add 3724. Perhaps a bit yeasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, courtesy of VastActiv, 20130713) The beer poured orange and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had spices, pepper and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were spices, malts, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy and bitter. Way too thin but the flavour was right.
