3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the CBB Saison Event. A clear light gold, more of a zesty lightly funky farmhouse with a bit of spice aroma. Much softer carbonation than the Biologique. The taste is funkier as well, spicy, a bit sharp, a bit metallic. 6.5% is quite a bit higher than I thought. OK.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 Pours medium/large dense foamy head, dark golden hazy colour. Very fruity and malty, soury, bit spicy aroma, belgian yeast, fruit peel, peaches, cherries, plums. Taste is very fruity and followes that sweet/sour balance, giving space to a final grassy, hoppy, peppery and soury long finish; moderate bitterness and bit of funkiness too. Lively carbonation, medium bodied and quite refreshing

375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with generous white head. Skunky aroma, must be lightstruck. Flavor is mostly of spices and Belgian yeast. Medium bodied. I'm sure I would have enjoyed this more with a better quality specimen.
