3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from mdg169, thanks Marc (the origin of our conversation ... which wound up with a bunch of great beer coming my way!) Pours an unclear very pale yellow with a spongey white head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has tangy fruits, definite funk, effervescence, some spices and light bready yeast. Definite cherry-ish in the lead! Taste is fruity, tart-y, some brett, tangy spicyness and a nice oakiness lingering. Light bodied with a touch of alcohol. Finishes sweetly tart with a solid oak presence back. Very enjoyable! 14.5

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle (probably a year old, says 7%) in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of light spices and hints of tartness, some oak and winelike characteristics, light fruits, and light malts and wheat and hints of caramel. Flavor the same with a nice blend but a little too man grapes for me. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Bottle... Pours murky and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is both funky and fruity - barnyard and lemon peel. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is sweet and tangy - nearly tart – with low bitterness. Short, tangy, sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Lively aroma of citrus and tropical fruit, full of yeast spice and mild funk, with notes of lime, melon, faint oak, licorice, a bit of tartness and phenols along with a mild floral sweetness in the background. Hazy light golden in color, plenty of opaque sediment in the bottle, (I chose to leave the vast majority of it there) and a very thin, fading white head. Flavor profile is lightly tart, fruity, citric, floral, lightly honeyish, spicy, peppery, faintly woody, funky and herbal, finishing dry and lightly bitter. Palate is active with carbonation and very quenching, particularly for a beer of this style and dangerously drinkable for a beer of its strength. Body is medium-full. Very nice.

500 ml bottle purchased from Blackwell’s. Pours a hazy light straw color with a thin white lasting head. Aroma is perfect saison complexity: hay, yeast, funk and lemon citrus. Flavor is tart lemon citrus, wheat and grass notes, Belgian yeast. A solid, delicious representative example of the saison style.

Really pleasant beer. Hides the big alcohol well. Lots of juicy fruit (lemon, peach and pineapple) notes with spicy esters of white pepper. Bright and lively with a nice twang near the finish. Effervescent and dry. I like it more and more with every sip.
