3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 poured into a tulip from a 750ml bottle. Pours a very light gold color that is clear as well. There is a very frothy and big head.
very citrus based aromas of papaya, navel oranges, spices and lemons.
medium bodied with very good flavors of lemons, floral and oranges. There is maybe a bit too much carbonation on this but the feel is very good.
A very good saison. Very citrus based as opposed to funky. Smooth with a good feel, this is very enjoyable.

On tap. Hazy golden brown, no head. Fruity aroma, loads of pear. Spicy, dry on the tongue, sweet fruitiness and a yeasty bite. Really carbonated. Overall, pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Goldenish amber, moderate to large sudsy off-white head, nice lacing.   Musty bready aroma,
somewhat dank and sweaty.   Barnish and grassy on the tongue, very dull floral aspect.   A little spritzy.
While dull it does have a bright grassy aspect, just the floral side is dull.   Body and mouthfeel are
moderate.   A little more lively on the backside, but still has this sweaty sock aspect.   Remains musty and a
little basement like all the way to the finish.   Not the floral sharp type of saison I like, but otherwise its

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In taster at Churchills. Looks dark yellow. White head. Smells like and amber farmhouse. Tastes like a pale farmehouse with bitterness and roughness. Would be a great lawnmower beer. Overall 7.5 of 10.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
HAzy orange body, white head. Aroma of ginger, perppers, spices and yeast. Flavour is spicy, floury, yeasty with some orange blossoms. Quite unorthodox and couldn’t catch the clue of this beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle. A hazy medium to dark blonde beer, with a huge, frothy, lacing, fully lasting white head. The aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, grass), lightly to moderately yeasty (earth, must/mold), with notes of pepper, lemon, orange, grape, perhaps a touch of mint and coriander. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness. Excellent stuff, complex. drinkable, quaffable, not over the top example, it feels almost completely Belgian, not overly spicy, Rustic and satisfying.
