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.

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.

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 ????

From a 25cl bottle. pours a dark brown body with a small tan head that did not stay long. Aroma of malts and herbs. Flavors of roasted malts, nuts, herbs, caramels and with hints of raisins. A medium to light body. Somewhat pleasant balance of flavors with some nice nutty finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle picked up at Tres Bonne Cuisine, pours a light chestnut color with a thin wavering head. Nose is sweet, akin to a sour red/brown ale, and a little dusty. Malty sweet taste and lighter yeast notes, Faintly sour, but mostly sweet, a little dark fruit shows up. Carbonation level is spot-on. Refreshing and different from the mainstream saisons, sort of like a saison with a little bit of flanders mixed in.
