3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A basic blonde Saison with a nice barnyard character. Good.
How: Bottle 750ml at Delirium Café, Brussels
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose is moderate barnyard with some flowers, horse blanket and wet cat. No doubt, this is a Saison. Taste is nice but unfortunately a bit straightforward. Attack has a mild sweetness that is half honey, half caramel. That leads to a finish that is moderately dry with a mild grassy/floral bitterness. This beer is nothing special. But I’m the type of guy who likes a good Saison. Incidentally, I’m also the type of guy who doesn’t like a bad Saison.
