4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just started to get into Saisons and have found them to be extremely refreshing. This is one of the best. A nice cloudy golden pour with a huge white head. Nice lacing on my glass. Great aroma of bread, honey, citrus, and black pepper. A wonderful refreshing brew with spices and tartness. Perfect combination.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the Bergweg. I have had this several times and enjoy it a lot. It is a golden yellow colour with a diminishing white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus, possibly some citrus fruits that are unknown to man. The flavour is smooth, malty, citrusy again, and then a very distinct bitterness. It’s balanced, it has stood the test of time. It’s on the offense. It’s good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour a clear gold with a finger of white head. Nose of Belgian yeast and hay malts. Tastes of a little bitterness, hay malts. What’s going on here? Is it just me or is this beer not as great as the rating? You Belgians, what the word on this beer in Belgium?

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sour aroma, body is full of residual pigments. Taste is yeast, basically. Hints of farm house. Doesn't quite do it for me...

Keg. Pours clear and golden, a white half-finger head, plenty of carbonation. Spicy fruity aromas, with a hint of zest. A bit fizzy in the mouth, slightly sour, some sweet fruits also, malts come through at the end. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this many times while in Belgium but somehow missed rating/reviewing it. I purposely had a sample at the 2014 Brugge beer festival to write about: these are the notes reformulated.
Slight haze to the golden yellow pour, huge white foaming crown on top. A yeasty earthiness to both the aroma and taste, sour fruits and spice notes throughout the tasting (as usual): this is a joy to drink, so full of different flavours and character. A true classic.
