3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a very nice golden colour, a hint of cloudiness, clean white foam. Aroma is mostly lemony, peppery, very elegant. Taste is bittersweet, peppery again, with a nice balsamic note. Not as dry as a Saison Dupont, but the light body, medium carbnation and very well-hidden alcohol presence together help boost drinkabilty. Finishes long and balsamic, quite a nice one.

Taste if big lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, peppercorn, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, pine, and yeast/spice earthiness. Good amount of peppercorn/yeast spiciness and light tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, peppercorn, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, pine, and yeast/spice earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice spiced saison style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
