2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A generic fruity Belgian amber ale. Not much of a Saison
How: Bottle 330ml at Cambrinus, Brugge, Belgium
The look: Clear amber body topped by a long-lasting small beige head
In long: Nose is mostly about typical fruity esters of generic yeasty Belgian ale. Taste is more of the same. Very fruity, tropical fruits, berries, dark fruits… just overall fruity. No sign of wild yeast, no dryness, nothing that hints on the Saison style. Hard to say anything about this beer other than this is a basic fruity Belgian amber ale. I love Saisons so I had to try this one. Did you really expect a half-decent Saison from this boring brewery? Don’t be absurd, this is Silly.

Bottle. Beige colored head. Sweet caramel and mild spices in the nose. Dark fruits, more residual sugars, caramel and mild banana bread flavors in the flavor. Sweet finish. Not much of a saison feel to it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Litt mørk til å være saison synes jeg. Minner litt om en brown ale. Helt grei på smak og aroma.

Flaske. Lys karamell farget. Lavt karbonert ingen skumtopp. Smaker brent sukker. Ingen typisk saison i mine øyne men god

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark red colored, medium creamy beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is sweet candy fruity caramel, some herbal notes and a bit of cardboard. Taste is medium sweet candy caramel, sugar, fruits, bit toasty, some cardboard and bit herbal, low bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Not really a Saison... or that nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At horecabeurs 2015. Pours clear brown/amber. No real head. Smell is sweet and caramelly. Taste is sharp, bitter and caramel. OK, yet very simple. I’m looking at the bottle, completely puzzled why anyone would think of this as a saison ????
