3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy with a nice orangey-tan glow. Rocky head. Gentle aroma is a little bit floral. The flavour is quite orangey, heavy-handed with coriander. Light floral character and soft malts. The beer improves with food, as the spice is cut somewhat, lending the beer better balance.

Shared by bhensonb. Pours golden with a massive off-white head and a sour fruit aroma. This is an excellent saison with a sweet malt flavor that turns to subtle bitterness on the palate. Just a little spicy and very refreshing.

Poured a hazy yellow/light golden into St Bernardus goblet. Bready smell, but very light. Slightly mellow lemon flavor, but smooth and clean taste, I like. Mouthfeel is very malty with a peppery finish. Overall, a pretty good beer.

bottle, pours deep gold/orange with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet floral and honey with lots of fruity esters. Sweet corn and wheat with hay and grass, touches of honey, flower petals, and some black pepper. Nice lingering spice and yeast in the finish. Solid saison!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange with a dense, enormous white head like beaten egg-white. Slight sweetness in the aroma, with plenty of funk and faint alcohol. Orange juice, faint tartness in the finish with a light grassy hop taste and lingering citrus notes. Yum! Mild carbonation, creamy body. This is extremely well-balanced, nothing dominates the flavour. Well done!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Sim rate (on tap at Cambridge Common): Aroma of hops and malt in good balance. Bit of wheaty citric bitterness. Murky, golden colour but with a great head. Bitter initial hops hit in the flavour that lasts right through ’till the end.
