3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle shared by Thomas @Bier mit Stil 2: Saison, Bierhandlung.
Aroma in the beginning is kind of dirty maybe like rotten fruit, then the ugly curtain raises and there is wheat, yeast and sour green apples together with some sourness. Taste is sour green apples with slight spices, that finishes dry and slightly bitter. Edgy and rough but good.

Poured from a 1995 750 ml bottle. This is very old and oxidized. Caramel notes, funky, citrusy. Past its prime.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Oranjekleurig bier met witte schuimkraag die snel wegebt. Zeer fruitig aroma. Geuren en smaken van perzik, abrikoos, nectarine, gele pruimen. Niet slecht maar niet 100 % mijn ding.

Bottle (33cl) bought at Kuva Dranken in Kinrooi, Belgium.
Great aroma- bready, very yeasty, spicy but not exaggerated. Taste is smooth, silky. Just yummy. Would go very well with cheese (I think...).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with a two finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Musty farmhouse aroma with some earthy funk, grassy hops, pale malt and light fruit. Strong Saison yeast presence along with piney hops, grass and straw followed by caramel malt, toffee, biscuit and fruit juice.
On the light end of medium bodied with soft carbonation and a prominent funky farmhouse yeast flavor that lingers over earthy hops, light fruit and malt backbone into a slightly sweet finish. Very earthy and funky with dry brett, Saison yeast and grassy hop notes followed by hints of toffee, bread and biscuit. Light fruit sweetness in the finish with some grape, apple and pear. Well balanced and easy to drink but nothing out of the ordinary.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Extreme gusher. Earthy aroma of malt, tart fruits, herbs and spices, anise, ginger, peppery notes. Flavour is moderate sweet and a bit tart. Body is medium. Interesting but not really my kind of Saison, too spicy/herbal.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Hazy darker orange. Lots of spice and mostly black pepper in the aroma with some slight fruit and maltiness. Flavor is dominated by black pepper, slight fruity malt as well. Lighter to medium body. Not my thing at all.
