3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap various times at Paradiso and Churchkey. A go to beer of mine nowadays though I am exciting to open a few bottles of this in the future to compare. The pour is a glowing, fully translucent/cloudy bright cobalt yellow with a modest, dense, eggshell head. Sticky lace. Nose is similar to Southampton Cuvee de Fleurs: rich tangerine sherbet, mango sorbet, muted chamomile and lavender. Taste is rich peach ice cream, tangelo, fresh honey dough and dried pineapple. Unreal palate: aerated and fluffy with insane softness. Very similar to Cuvee de Fleurs. Amazing.

bottle. pours a cloudy gold with a very large foamy white head. lemon, vanilla, sage aroma. carbonation is very high in this one with a light body. the flavors are mostly vanilla with doughy malt, white cake and a clean herbal(sage) finish. the carbonation was too much for me.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. A hazy golden beer that has a nice big soapy off white head. Thick lacing. Herbal and soft fruit including apples in the nose. That is also tasted along with pears and cinnamon. Tasty!

Sampled from bottle at PIB, pours hazy / murky yellow with a small white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, sort of a pot-like quality, lemon zest and dry-like character. Flavour is very dry fruits, lemon zest, yeast, with a dry palate and a funky / yeasty finish. Wonderful saison.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy dark yellow with a white head. The aroma holds soft sweet citrus (tangerine, lemon and lime), coriander/spices, cracker-like malt, light phenols and incense. Undertones of wheat, wet grass, wet asphalt, clove, white pepper, salvia, mint, lavender, matchstick, earth (maybe barnyard), dust and flower shop. The nose is perfect in balance. A light touch of yellow fruit/pineapple and pear esters as the beer gets warmer. Super dirty in a rather clean way. The flavor is dusty dry, light bitter and light acidic. Tones of flowers, herbs, spices, citrus, subtle fruits, crackers, dust, wet stone and light incense smoke. The mouthfeel is clean, dusty and soft with a medium crisp carbonation. The finish holds numbing spices, dust, wheat, yeast, fancy hops, tangerines and crackers. Medium bodied. For me this beer is a perfect symbol of what is wrong with the ratebeer community - a fantastic beer without the epithet Imp o Barrel-whatever will never be an evergreen on the top 50 list (let him who is without sin cast the first stone). Anyhow, as the kids say: OMG! just as ass kicking as a good white whine.

draft@Delirium Hoppy Loft: very hazy yellow beer with white head, lots of citrus hops in the nose but also some spices, sweet & fruity with lots of bittering citrus hop & some sweet apricots, complete hop bomb, decent amount of yeast & some minor spice, very different from Belgian saison’s in my opinion but definitely great stuff, dry finish

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazed and confused, is it gold or is it yellow. Tall lasting head. Heavily spiced on the nose. Thick and malty with nice acidity and moderate bittering. This brew is heavily spiced with notes of citrus, stonefruit, herbs, and perfume. The finish is dry with a little heaviness. This brew sets like lard on a wet burro plate from Jonpoloberto’s on Van Buren st. Rich and filling.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, capped and foiled. Pours a very slightly hazy medium gold with a towering, nearly unmanageable foamy white head. Decent eggy lace. Big orangey nose, smells almost like orange juice. Definitely get a minty sage note. Creamy medium body with fairly well contained carb. Orange, tangerine, and mint on the mid palate. Sweet citric savory finish. Nice stuff.
