4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2015 Light yellow golden, small bubbly head. Very citric, fresh. Not as yeasty as the normal saison, but maybe because this is on tap. Drinks well, nicely carbonated. Well dry, cleanly developed. Nice! But... like the normal better I think! (On tap at Delft beer festival 2012)

1.5L at Campdown Brewdown. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a massive, pillowy white head. Awesome formation and retention/lace. Nose is heavy apples, esters, sweet apple juice. Taste is tangy and sweet apple juice. Green apple. Very cidery with acetaldehyde flavors throughout. Disappointing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Café Rose Red, Brugge, 17 July 2012) Hazy golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of grass, hay, citrus and hints of yeast. Malty, hoppy taste with bread, grass, citrus, hints of yeast and a fresh, grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. As expected, a very nice beer with a fresh and tasty hop profile.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Tap @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Cloudy dark yellow appearance with a cream white head. Very nice floral, dandelion, grassy/straw, a bit zesty/spicy aroma. Starts out fairly dry and sweetens a bit further on. Straw, hay, floral, light citrusy, somewhat earthy, zippy, herbal flavor. Quaffable but I think I prefer the normal version based on this one taste. (4.1) Update: Bottle tasted back in good ol’ Colorado and it is quite delicious. (4.3)
