4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 375ml bottle [a fugitive from the unknown realm of Bartlebierean beer dungeons, thank you very much!]. Clear (with later pouring cloudy) golden colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy and fruity yeasty aroma, green apple, lemon, pear and hints of green fruit parings stick out of a peach basis, spicy yeasty notes come along, hints of peppercress, pollen, a floral as well as a funky touch - all flavours appear in a mild condition and perfectly integrated. Taste is fresh and refreshing, slightly dry, slightly tart, slightly sweet, slightly spicy, the above mentioned flavours appear again with interchanging emphases in vibrating course until the finish takes a distinct peppery and slightly grassy, bitter hoppy direction. Super soft palate, soft but effectual carbonation. I would have a second one not only under torture.

avendo anche una saison dupont normale da assaggiare,posso affermare di aver notato alcune differenze..per intenderci,sono sostanzialmente le stesse birre, ma nell’aroma si avverte la differenza,con l’aggiunta di luppoli probabilmente leggeri dal punto di vista dell’intensità aromatica..anche nel gusto si avverte un finale più amaro rispetto all’originale..corpo elevato,schiuma mediamente persistente..ottima,merita davvero tanto

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale golden colour, huge carbonation, ballooning white foam. Just very nice, crisp malts, sweetish balance from yeasty esters, then some herbal and slightly fruity hoppy twang. Not overly hopped, but just enough to perhaps make it more moreish than the basoc version. Nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange color with a big and rocky head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. This beers aroma is typical saison yeasyness, fruity, a bit doughy with a more pronounced hoppyness. Flavour wise this saison is typically yeasty, wheat bread, grassy and bitter hops. Big carbonation with a nice texture, finishes dry. Good stuff even though I prefer the regular over this one.
