3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is quite brown and hazy.
Aroma has butterscotch/diacetyl, yeast, and apple juice (toffee apples!)
Flavours are really crisp and sweet. They kind of disappear quickly and not much of a finish is left.

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 ????

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Delirium Tokyo. Copper coloured, and quite different. Fruity berries in the aroma, maybe almost cherry. Taste is fruity and quite sweet. Doesn’t feel very saison like. No graininess. Quite sweet, caramel. Quite nice but a little too sweet for me to drink more than a small glass.
