3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle. Dated 10/11/10, $4 at Binny’s, Nov ’10. Fizzy, fizzy pour, big head over a brownish-brassy body. Popping bubbles almost as noisy as Rice Krispies. Light malty smell with a hint of Belgian wheat or spice. Sips are effervescent as champagne. Taste is mild golden malts with a hint of roast. A little raspberry tart, but a happy, dry finish. I said happy, not hoppy, as there’s not a noticeable bitterness, at least that can be felt over the dryness. Tasty, well worth repeating.

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

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 ????
