3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Classic Limburg ale, one of the very few from Martens which are commercialized under their own name; the name of the beer refers to the Wallonian saison tradition. Rating from old notes. Peach blonde with medium, off-white head; sweetish fruitiness (pineapple, peach, apple peel), bready and somewhat caramelly maltiness, yeasty touch, lightly sourish accent actually enhancing drinkability, herbal hop bitterishness in the finish. Nothing very complex, but balanced and relatively refined for such an old school beer, as well as very quenching. Liked this when I tasted it ten or twelve years ago, but I’ll retaste it just to be sure as it may have changed meanwhile.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft @ Le Bier Circus. Crystal-clear, solid white head, very clean golden, looks too filtered, tad industrial. Taste is lightly malty, grains, iron bitter, light bitterness, light yeast and fake lemon, fake, industrial, it feels over-filtered and overdone, light EU hops, quite artificial. Too light, too clean, tad corn or something mouthfeel. Not too good, closer to a pale lager in feel than apparently a saison for me. Wow a 1/100 style saison.
