4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of pepper, lemon, white grape and dough. Appearance is unfiltered amber with creamy bone head. Flavor is quite peppery up front, like a Saison, but also has some light fruity esters intertwined with dough; the finish is quite herbal. Palate is chewy and endlessly effervescent, like all the great Belgian ales. Excellent.

330ml bottle (Bierkompass.de)
7 Lovely fruity peachy fleshy fruit aroma.
4 Hazy light orange, brief frothy head.
7 Full fruity esters, but loads of barky bitterness too. Some lightish grains, but some liquorice too, so the malts are covering all bases.
4 Full, but quite uplifting palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish is a very serious kick of liquorice which lasts for a very long time. Some saltiness and iron in the long finish.
14 Delicious belgian ale, has plenty of saison features too. Fresh and uplifting. Absolutely no sense of the 7% alcohol at all.

Smiske R-Ale draft@ZBF 2011: “truesteamdryhoped” version, where a Hop Randall was used, I tried the version with Cascade hops, earlier in the day, poured a very cloudy, hazy orange, the structure was very grainy, chewy-like, taste was very strong on dry hops, followed by citrus, oranges & some yeast, with the dry hops leading to a very bitter aftertaste, it was like a hop, citrus-flavoured milkshake, all over the place, very unbalanced but very interesting & lovely
