3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can. BB 01/11/14. From a trade with deyholla.
Golden colour with a small dense creamy white head.
Yeast, mild bitterness, fruits and hops in the aroma.
The flavour is Belgian yeast, grassy hops, moderate bitterness and some fruitiness. Tasty. Plums I can’t find but it doesn’t matter. This is good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet plums and clove spicage over bready malt. The flavor found black pepper, cloves, and banana over bready malt and a touch of plum.. back to the spices on the quick, dry finish. Lighter-bodied and dry.. ok feel and flow.. overall not that interesting.

Sampled at Kennys. This is a nice saison. I kept looking for plum but found none. Still, it is a nice beer. Just a bit of bret.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can. Hazy gold-orange-yelllow unfiltered body. Thin, creamy, steady of-white head. Has a pretty discernable plum character, which melds nicely with the Saison yeast. A little bit of a bite, but then fades into a sweet finish. Has some depth, but maybe a little too much going on, the Saison yeast is not really a clean palate to paint on. An OK, enjoyable beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold color. Moderate head. Sweet with some spice, but thin palate. The aroma is right but something off with the flavor that I can’t pit my finger on.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big can shared by Ed5388. Ed told me that he choose the screen name Ed5388 because that’s the highest number he can count to. Poured with an appearance that seemed infected, all head at first followed by a long slow settle. Body of an orange/gold body under that ridiculous head. Aroma is all Belgian style, lots of yeast, slight fruitiness, bubble gum and chalk. Medium body with average carbonation, chalky, long lasting aftertaste. Flavor of yeast, plums, bubble gum, dry bread. Meh.
