Nice. As a saison, the key word here is floral. That is the primary note -- above and beyond the usual saison notes, which are very very solid here -- that I’m getting. Not very carbonated. Saison Belgian yeast on the lower side. But this is a good one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 oz. bottle from a four pack purchased at 7-11, Kittery ME. Crystal golden color with low carbonation producing very little white head. Aroma is musty yeast and a HUGE spice influence. <br
Medium in body, soft carbonation giving a delicate mouthfeel. Flavor is chamomile, hibiscus, and lots of floral hops and dried flowers. Very low bitterness that shows a weak sweetness from caramel malt. The finish is more dried, dead flowers. I liked this better when it was colder, as it warmed the herbs got overpowering. I don’t get any Belgian yeast of funky notes at all. It’s kind of like drinking an herb garden with hints of perfume.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle form ABS. Dark amber pour with fizzy white head. Aroma is super spicy, chamomile certainly, tea notes, lavender, super floral, coriander, light wheaty grainy aromas. Taste is equally spicy, light clove, black pepper like tickle on the tongue, malty, light caramel sweetness, long grassy spicy finish, like eating indian food it just stays and stays and stays. Palate is med bodied with prickly carb. Certainly overdone, yet there are some interesting aromas in there that are actually really well rendered. Wouldn’t drink it on any regular basis but well worth a try.

Gushing bottle at Capital in Leuven. The head quickly disappeared. Very spicy aroma, lots of cinnamon. A bit perfumy at first, but improves. The taste is more balanced than the nose suggests. Baked apples with cinnamon. A bit of a bitter note in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. A gusher, big time, probably lost 2/3 of the bottle. Pours a medium brown color, decent amount of tan head. Aroma super floral, lots of chamomile, maybe some heather, too. A bit of yeast, too, but mostly flowers. Body is rich and slippery, as befits the botanical additions, finish is a bit spicy at the back.

Birra molto particolare, dal carattere fortemente speziato e una luppolatura erbacea molto intrigante. Non impazzisco per questo genere di prodotti, ma devo ammettere che il risultato è davvero notevole!!
