3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
hazy yellow coloured with an average to large white head and some light carbonation. Herby malty aroma, some fruity hints. Fresh and full palate with some carbonation. Very herby finish, little yeasty with a somewhat sharper taste, and a longer dry finish. Rather good.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I must have gotten a sh*t bottle cause this was awful. Stinky urine and wheat scent (slightly, well, skunky). Pours a frothy white head. What was discernable on the tongue was a smooth wheat, little to no hops. Little bubbly, but generally flat, however, the second day upon recorcking, "pop" it was still alive and well. Poured a clear golden (light) color. I could pick up the yeast and spice, but barely due to the overwhelming skunk-iness of the beer. I may pick it up again just to give it a second chance, but not too quickly. (Bottle Pour 08/26/2006)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer reminded me an awful lot of Duvel, but niot quite as good. Poured to a highly carbonated golden yellow, with thick pilowy white head that lasted the entire beer, and left excellent lacing. Aroma was floral with hints of grass and citrus. Flavor was a very good hodge-podge of many flavors..floral, grassy, some fruit, hint of spice and yeast. Left a very good, smooth finish. Not necessarily my favorite style, but this was a damn good beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 A Mes rate: Draught at Lowlander. Dark hazy blonde with a slim but perfectly formed white head. Superb aroma. Lovely hops, vanilla, caramel, burnt sugar, light rosemary and a lick of coriander. Very noseable. Spicy, hoppy and grassy flavour. Plenty of bite. Wonderfully creamy. Very slight sweetness. Bitter hoppy finish with an ever so pleasing delicate sting. Wonderful lick of lingering malt right at the end giving it excellent balance.Crisp, dry and wonderfully clean. Stunning stuff. ***ORIGINAL RATE*** (27/8/2006) 75cl bottle form the Belgian Belly. 7/3/7/4/15

Perhaps I was just not in the mood for an estery, peppery fruity horseblanket, wild yeasty beverage at the time I tried this one, but regardless this would definitely not make the list of my favorites for this style.

Had a bit of a skunky odor when I popped the cork -- wished they used something other than a green bottle.
Huge, thick, white foamy head -- had to wait a bit for it to settle.
Somewhat bubbly, citrusy (is that a word?) and fruity, a bit weak on the hops and malt. My first Saison, so not sure how to rate it in comparison to others -- good but not great, I suppose.
