3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yellow-gold unfiltered hazy, big froathy head. Very lively carbonation. Itís a warm day here, so I thought it would be a good time to try a Belgium Saison. Hay, citrusy aroma, fruity, and a bit of that green bottle scent, only at first. A very dry hoppiness and has a mild limey sourness. A salty dryness lingers. This is moderatly complex and refreshing. This beer is better than I probably make it sound.

An okay saison, but I actually had a hard time finishing the bottle. A good subtly spicy aroma with a nice head. The beer is true saison style, subtle, nice, and easy to drink.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2007 yellow golden with fine white head. A bit of fruit and a lively carbonation makes this very fresh and overall pleasant. Yeast & citrus! Easy drinkable. Has a great finsih! Another great wallonian saison brew!

UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 Maybe I had built up my expectations too much. A beer from a place called "Wallonia" truly peaked my interest. It looked good and smelled wonderful but the taste was a huge letdown. Tasted like a normal, light, euro lager. Thereís a possibility my bottle was bad as there was a pretty strong sourness to it. Iíll try another in the future and change my score if itís better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1000th Rating!! WooHoo!! A thick white head which almost filled the glass sat on top of a murky yellow body. Head was tightly beaded, dense and left delightful rings of lacing. Spice, cloves, cheese, citrus and a touch of alcohol on the nose. Unfiltered taste gave a chalky texture with flavours of pepper, yeast, citrus and a dry light bitter finish, the body is thin enough to make it easy to quench your thirst and then keep on drinking and drinking. I Didnít think I liked Saisons but I certainly loved this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a cloudy yellowish gold color with a thick white head that lasted for a very long time. I could not detect what the aroma was after the pour but as it warmed it had an aroma similar to a white beer. The taste seemed to have a little citrus and maybe some coriander but with a little dry funkiness. This was my first saison and I think after future tastings this style could grow on me.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2007 This was tasty. Hazy like a German Heff, with a lot of the same characteristics if you ask me. Banana, little bit of clove, golden with white frothy head. I almost found an odd hint of classic lemon-lime Gator-aid. I swear I taste a little bit of salt. Very thirst quenching. When I first poured it, I swear it had some Pilsner Urquel notes, but they seemed to dissipate as it ís carbonation snuck away. I thought it was awesome. One thing I donít get though, I always thought Saisons were fermented at very high temps. Iím talking like in the 90ís. Yet, the bottle says this style is brewed in the winter for summer consumption since the days before refrigeration. What gives?

Bottle 375 mL--The pour finished with a huge foamy head that left copious amounts of lacing throughout the drink. The color was a very cloudy yellow. The aroma was overwhelming with citrus, mostly lemony smells. The taste had the same citrus feel, especially on the lips.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ml bottle, bottle conditioned. Eaten with Corsendock Wellness cheese.
Poured light, cloudy yellow. 2-inch bubbly, foamy white head. Head present all the way through. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of corriander, lemon, spices, and orange peels. Aroma was stong but not overpowering. Flavor spicy, light orange peels, corriander, lemon, slight vanilla notes and hops. Dry finish with mellow aftertaste. Very refreshing! Good carbonation. Setiment settled on the bottom of my glass and the bottle. complex aromas and flavors, all mixed very nicely. I was a little worried that I wouldnít like this, but I did!
