Cloudy orange with a beige head. Aroma contains citrus, coriander, and spices. Flavor is somewhat tart with some oranges, spices, and ginger. The aftertaste is a bit dry. Overall nice saison.

Pours a cloudy amber body with a thin head. Faint aroma of yeast and sugars. Nice refreshing taste with tones of hay and summer fields. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drowland (7055) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2015
2/20/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. 2002 vintage. Golden pour, khaki head. Nice aroma, light funk and tartness, some apple and paper, but not off-putting enough in my eyes. The flavor shows the age more, apple, paper, light funk, cidery. Glad to try and very interesting!

jackl (5816) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle shared during RBWG on the Booze Bus. Thanks! Gold pour with a small white head. Pretty oxidized nose. Signs of age include paper, cardboard, knackered honeyed grains. Taste has some mellow marmalade. A touch soupy. abrupt finish. Diminished, but not entirely unappealing.

33cl flesje bij De Gouverneur, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 6% Uitgeschonken in Saison 1858 glas Uiterlijk: oranjekleurig met kleine witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: neus als komkommer vreemd, kruidig als gember, aards, sinaasappelschil en steranijs niet zo te proeven Conclusie: niet mijn saison, vreemde smaak ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kerenmk (3368) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks avrashi. Murky amber, with ring. Honey, orange, ginger and candy aroma, along with a little rye, sweet, then black pepper, honey, a little anise taste. Full body, a little anise aftertaste and spicy finish. Whimsical and tasty.

Rob_D_UK (1272) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Pours a clear copper with a frothy white head. Farmhouse hop aroma and the taste is sweet and then sour and bitter with orange peel hints.

Ysok02 (414) - MOns, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2015
Robe ambrée, mousse peu persitante. Nez assez complexe sur le caramel, les épices, les fruits confits, une touche de gingembre. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, beaucoup de rondeur, un coté douceureux et caramélisé et une finale ample. Une bière puissante et complexe, qui pourrait évoluer.

SudsMcDuff (6932) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2015
green old bottle .. .dust, yeast, and pharmacy .. . light feel and a squeaky finish, the 2002 vintage shows quite a bit .. . . a scone is just a really sad doughnut.
