"Fruity and sweet aroma with some bubble gm and spices. More fruity Belgian than Saison to me, but pretty nice overall. Not a favorite in style though, so for the price a one timer."

Tap. Amber with fluffy slight off-white head. Nice spices up front with apple and some citrus (orange, tangerine). Light herbal touch with unripe berries. Quite sweet with light tart touch and herbal bitter finish. Medium bodied. Quite sweet for a saison but quite ok.

Een saison met iets te weinig smaak aan voor mij. Dan zijn er betere te vinden dan dit.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Pours clear copper brown with a white head and nice lacing. Caramel sweet and phenolic aroma with quite a lot of fruitiness. Malty taste with medium carbonation. Notes of dried fruit, sour red berries, caramel, some peppers, yeast. Drier nutty finish with hints of citrus. An okay brew but certainly not what i expect from a saison, its malt base is more like an altbier.

From a bottle. Dark cloudy red/brown, thin head, sharp fruity flavours linger with malt smoothness. I’m impressed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very drinkable beer but not at all what I have come to expect from the style.
Strong malt aroma and flavour, caramel sweetness and a touch of warmth from the alcohol. Almost closer to a dubbel than a saison.
As I said though, very drinkable and no doubt refreshing.

Bottle from Beers of Europe, trying to try lots of different saisons before brewing one! 25cl bottles are a bit small I think for 5% beer. Oh it’s poured a kind of chestnut brown, tiny white ring of foam. Sweet, malty and fruity? Kind of thin. Bland. Quite a disappointment.
