2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Binny’s on Marcey. Pours a glowing yellowy orange with a huge head of foam that fades. Nose is okay, quite floral and a large burst of phenolics. some faint citrus as well. Yeast really dominates with some plastic notes. On taste, the plasticy phenolics are a bit much. I like the other fruity and estery notes, but the phenols really overwhelm this. Some pils malt and some hops, again floral. Not my bag.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an unclear and amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, spices, coriander, yeast, pepper and perfume. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness and bitterness. Overall an average beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
08-JUL-2011, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken".
Golden with white head.
Nose is very herbal with coriander and a touch of pepper. Almost soapy taste with the same herbs and a very dry mouthfeel. Lemon and a mouthcoating dryness and bitterness.
Really strange brew. Do not like it all that much allthough I really want to try...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Man, this beer was so close to scoring even higher. I let it warm a bit out the fridgee. Poured with a mammoth, billowy, foamy, frothy, fluffy, sudsy, cream colored head that slowly settled down and a little lace. Color is a cloudy amber apricot with lots of very active bubble trails and trub bits floating around. Aroma is like their description - herbal, grassy, plus yeast, musty, and a little malt. Flavor’s like the nose with the herbs coming out more, a hefty bite from the yeast, and a serious tang from heavy carbonation. Body is ok and carbonation, well, I already said. Finish is herbal with an odd sweetness that wasn’t there before and is fairly short. Pretty good saison, but not a session.
