3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bomber. Pours rusty and fizzy with little head or lacing. Aroma is like a cider. Flavor is tart and light without much depth. Very wattery and not very good. Somewhat dry. Not really like a normal saison - not awful but really not something I’m into (and I like saisons).

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours darkish amber with thick, creamy head. Aroma is acidic (like a cider), apples, ginger....Taste is fruity and acidic. Acidity lingers on the palate, but is not overpowering. This a beauty of a beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice saison. Pours golden with foamy head, especially with my crappy pour. Some floral hops and barnyard aromas. A little banana and clove sweetness as well. Nice balance, nice all-around beer. I got a sense of the ginger and anise as well. Bottle at barvolo.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Birreria Paradiso Georgetown. Hazy, murky orange-brown. Delicate, very soft on the palate. Mellow and sugary melon sweet at times. This is certainly not a yeast bomb, more along the lines of a classic subtle lemon-lime session saison. Not a whole lot of character, very old school. Enchantingly clean, but does fall short in effervescence on tap...Its been a long time since Ive had the bottle.. Really nice, simple, sublime.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl and 25cl bottles - Interesting "dirty" saison: pours a very murky organge with cloudy bits and bobs in it floating about. Spicy, peppery aroma with some acidity; surprisingly tasty (ripe orchard fruit, some vinegar), but with a too me very unbalanced "dirty" mouthfeel: bit n the oily side instead of dry, which for a saison is not desirable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewdog shop. Thick amber color, white head. Bitter sweet taste with ripe fruits, yeast, earthy notes, white wine aroma and plum. Dry sweet / sour finish. Good saison, quite unique taste.

33cl bottle, Geers. Pours full golden in colour, dense white head with good retention. Spicy yeasty nose. Aroma of dusty / metallic citrusfruits. Touch of anise retronasal. MF sharp tangy and a bit tart. Spelt/wheat ? Taste a touch sour, but balanced. A quenching complex brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is a touch spicey - cloves or something, a few at least - lemon/citrus too. Appearance is a clear golden-orange colour with not much head but with lace in any case. Taste is spices, citrus, corriander? cloves? nutmeg? Palate is nice, spices playing on the tongue, bitter, but not too much. Overall, good.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Reddish/amber pour. No carbonation and no head. No lace. Aroma of caramel and a little body odor. Mouth is light. Pretty much apple juice, but mostly water. I’m pretty sure I got a bad bottle here because this was not good at all.
