3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Pours a light shade of amber with a medium sized head that quickly recedes to a ring of foam. It smells a bit wild and sour for a saison. Notes of honey, grass, stone fruit, straw, and lemon. There is a slight sourness in the flavor but not nearly as much as the smell would leave you to believe. The flavor is malty, bready, lemon, and grass. The body is of average thickness for the style and the carbonation falls slightly lower than average. Quite drinkable and refreshing but slightly lacking in complexity.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

A 2002(!) bottling. Perhaps past its prime but certainly held up very well.
Rich complex aroma and flavor with figs, raisins and spices.
The flavors are nicely balanced and blended.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. 1995 vintage. Moldy looking under cap and cork. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. All I can say, is this one aged nicely and ’different’. Nice tart sourness ... fruity, apples, and citrus.

Beautiful brown colour, off-white foamy head. Green apples, ginger, spicy yeast, light but sweet malts, champagne-like tones. Nicely lingering finish. High carbonation but soft mouthfeel, good but light body. Really an one of a kind ale.
