3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Cloudy brown in color. 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. Still the flavors came together nicely for me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A mid brown-orange coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A mild sour aroma, malt vinegar and sour fruit. The taste is a mild sourness, a strange sweet and sour flavour, malt vinegar and caramel, slightly bready and pickled fruit, lemon and grapefruit. The mild tartness stays until the finish.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Old rating rerated 16.01.2015, 0,33l bottle @ Royal Gourmetburger & Gin:
Small fizzy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet grainy, hay, wet grain, minerals, caramel, cereal, yeast, grass, toast. Taste is slightly sweet sour-ish, wet grain, sugar, minerals, harsh hay, sour grass, cereal, weeds. Little bitterness, harsh sour-ish mouthfeel. Close to a drainpour, and far from being a saison...

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.
