4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured from the bottle into a tulip. As a preface and going from Dyan’s comment--I quite thoroughly enjoyed Saison du BUFF.
Pours a light rusty copper with a four finger white head. No real lacing as it goes down. Nose brings forth strong, fresh herbs; seems to be rosemary and sage. Slightly sweet and maybe a bit of pine. Taste brings the components together along with a bit of earth. Quite nice overall. Feel is overly light and undercarbonated. Drinks fairly well, though some of the spicing gets to be a bit much.

Hazy golden pour. Aroma was grapefruit and cloves with some black pepper. Taste is mild spice and citrus. Way over carbonated but very good otherwise.
