3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ambrée assez sombre,belle carbo, collet moyen persistant de fines bulles.
Aromes a base de pain, et fruits noirs, quelques notes de cherry.
Vive de part sa carbo mais assez douce et mince, bien fruite sur la finale. Tire un poil trop sur le sucre pour moi.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper color, a bit hazy with decent off-white head. Aroma of belgian yeast and some sourness. Taste is not as expected from the aroma. Starts with sweet malts and gets just a bit tart in the finish. Body is medium with good carbonation. Definitely not a saison true to the style. The sweet caramel character at the start doesn’t pair well with the slight sourness and also the aftertaste is not very pleasant. Overall I didn’t enjoy it and wouldn’t have it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Seiyu. Dark rusty amber, off-white head. Aroma has malt notes that make me think of a brown ale rather than a saison. Flavour has some yeast and spiciness. Odd beer, but nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour with big tan head. Sweet lemon sour aroma. It says saison on the label? Mostly sweet and a bit sour. Tiny bit of saison spicyness if you look for it. Tart finish, like a German brause bonbon.

BOTTLE 33 CL.
Look: clear mahogany, minimalist head.
Aroma: sugary and honey like sweetness, winy notes, some horse blanket.
Taste: light caramel sweetness, lactic and acetic acidity and some funk. Hardly a saison, but drinkable.

2 bottles for 380 yen from Seiyu. Served in a tulip, 5% It pours a surprisingly dark amber brown reminiscent of the barrel on the label. The aroma is of a big malty belgian, similar to a dubbel. The taste is similarly malty, light toffee, honey, candy sugar, candied fruits with just the slightest of nods to a possible saison type yeast. It’s quite a nice ale, think of it as a Brown Belgian Ale and you’ll have a better opinion of it than as a saison. Quite good for the price!
