3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 6,5% ABV 33cl bottle. Pours an orange amber with a white blanket of a head. Aroma is light. Fruity with peach, pear and apricot, slightly yeast. Taste is fairly sweet with caramel and the aforementioned fruits. Strongly peach and apricot as well as pear, fermented and otherwise. Dries up with herbalness and spiciness. Palate is quite full with strong carbonation. Better pour aggressively. More of a Belgian ale than a saison to my taste, but that all depends on where exactly one draws the line.

Average tasting Belgian style blonde ale, with a hoppy slightly lager like taste, ok but not memorable

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark ring of yeast around the neck. Pours rich gold with effervescent appearance with the formation of very large bubbles. Nose is a wonderfully complex blend of flowers, spicy hops, sly easy spice, earth herbs, and sweet fruits. Flavor is extremely earthy, spices, very peppery, almost a sweetness that is mellowed by lively carbonation and a heavy peppery finish. Light body. no alcohol flavors are evident. Good overall. Great aroma, and an interesting earthy fruity notes come out in the flavor.

Nice little saison, very drinkable, my taste buds are not with it but I’m enjoying this. I don’t want to stop drinking but I know that the stuff left in my cupboard needs me at my best.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light copper body with pearl white head. Mild, classic hops, accessible light malts, bit of hay. Very moderate. Tasty light bitter base,drinkable palate but unimaginative. Active carbonation. It’s a well drinkable beer but not enough character to justify its existence between all those French (and Belgian!) blondes. This brewer can do better, I know. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Shared with Doug at the Bayou. Poured from a 750ml bottle. The nose is yeasty, lemon rind, dusty. The flavor is similar, but with sweet malty character. A rustic beer that was great to experience.
