3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Gollem II, sold to me as St. Feuillien Printemps, ABV 6.5%. I asked the bartender and he told me all his kegs of Printemps were filled with this almost black beer.. So either it’s a new recipe, or it’s this beer. For now, I’ll rate it here. As said, almost black, light-beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, soft liquorice, toffee, all soft and a bit muted. Flavour is light to medium-sweet, liquorice, toffee, roasted malts, some coffee, dry, light bitter finish. Light-bodied. Certainly not as sweet as expected from St. Feuillien. Nice surprise.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. Pours a deep brown body with a huge eggshell-hued head. Nose is licorice, saison yeast tones, chocolate and hints of dark berries. Taste is huge licorice tones, ashes, anisseed, hints of burnt toast and light straw notes. High carbonation and extremy watery body. Ok, but a bit too clean and lacking body, for some reason.

Dark brown, foam disappears quickly. Lively carbonation. Strange mix between saison and porter. Herbs and hops, roasted malts and notes of coffee. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A colabrown beer with a very big, light brown head. Aroma is weird but in a good sense, fruits and spices, strong liquirice, roastiness, herbs and lots of mint. Taste is strongly bitter, roasted, some liquirice, herbs and mint. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Unique mix of fruits and dominating roastiness with herbal mint.

Black with beige creamy head, good lacing. Strong aroma is interesting: anise, eucalyptus,salty licorice, medical herbs, bit flowery notes. Fizzy, light feel, crisp carbonation, sweet with strong herbal feel, tasty finish. Interesting tasty and nuanced saison.
