3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle dated B-09-09, September of 09 I would assume. Cloudy amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of stone fruit, dark fruit, husky grain, light caramel, some cereal and lots of bready yeast. Tastes like a big sweet barleywine up front, lots of toffee, sweet caramel, butterscotch, spice, dark fruit, soon after some hazelnut, earth, hints of sweet nectarine and other stone fruit, sweet salted fruit and caramel finish. Heavy, chewy bodey, light but slightly sharp carbonation and slightly dry finish. Good stuff, it doesn’t seem much like a Saison, but being 3 years old I am not alarmed.

Color is amber/bronze and a bit cloudy. Huge white head with an amber accent. Smells like a sour beer, only a bit sweeter. A combination of different tastes, such as caramel, candied fruit and spices, gives for an incredible beer. Delicious.

Köpt på monks struise bar, Stockholm. Flaska från 2012. Ganska söt och tung öl som passar att sippa på. Rätt så ljus färg. Nästan lika god som pannepot.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Belgian blonde with alot of spices. When it’s cold it doesn’t work that well. the bitterness doesn’t work together with the spices and sweetness - but when the beer gets a bit air and gets warmer everything feels better in place, although i would probably like these spices better in a darker ale, like a Quad or dubbel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015/03/17 - Pours a hazy, rusty-orange colour with a thin, fizzy, off white head that quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing. Aroma is apples, plums, sweet caramel malt, vanilla, a hint of musk and woody notes. Taste follows nose; apples, plums, spices, sweet caramel and oak with a hint of booze. Mouthfeel is medium with biting carbonation and a sweet, dry, warming finish. Good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore ramato scuro, molto velata. Aromi di spezie, frutta secca, frutta sotto spirito, zenzero. Purtroppo agli aromi non corrisponde l’assagio rovinato dalla presente di molto lievito in sospensione causa autolisi.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy medium amber with particles and a fluffy dirty white head. Sweet malt aroma with some kind of spices in the background. That sweet malt follows through in the taste along with a good Belgian yeasty flavor. There are definitely spices in the brew, but they aren’t overwhelming or very distinct. However they are very good! The 10% ABV is practically hidden and this is very easy to drink. Good thing it’s a small bottle. This is a very good and tasty Christmas beer. The description listed here which doesn’t match the story on the bottle I have is quite entertaining.

Âmbar escura, turva, boa espuma, embora não muito permanente por conta do álcool. Aroma de laranja, frutas secas, álcool, cereja, condimentos, cravo. Na boca é aquecedora. Corpo médio-alto. Final doce, alcoólico.
