750 ml. bottle. Pours golden color with a white head. Floral and yeasty aromas, but the chamomile does not show through much. It does show on the palate which gives good balance. Nice light hoppy finish. I like this one.

A golden blond easy-drinker of a saison with enough hop character to balance out the spicing. Redolent of clove, pepper, flowers and flowery hop. Nicely dry, and has just enough bitterness to manage the yeasty spicy esters and faint flowery perfume. Spicy burps though.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a clear, light golden. Weaker foam. Odd diacetyl nose with heavier banana esters. Taste is odd baked apple, soap, some diacetyl. Palate is dry and soapy. Not so great.
