3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($6): Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, and malty. Taste is very Unibroue. The sweet malts coupled with that particular yeast make it pretty obvious. PP advertised this as a saison, but I didn’t really get much saison in this. Overall, this was just a simple, sessionable Belgian Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341ml bottle. Belgian malt and dusty yeast nose. Filtered gold colour with a moderate, quickly dissipating head. Taste is a sweet fruity malt and yeast. Light spice. No bitterness to speak of. Body and carbonation are average. Overall, a good starter Belgian ale that keeps it simple with malt and yeast, not coriander or other craziness.

If this one from any other brewery I’d be a lot more forgiving. The aroma is generic, unremarkable in every way. The beer over-all is of high quality but it lacks the charm of a typical Unibroue

Unfortunately the whole case must have been shaken in transport. What’s with these beer stores and/or freight carriers!?
Slight citrus and dough. Unfiltered, effervescent, thick yet light mouth feel, lively carbo. medium sweetness, lightly sour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pizzeria Paradiso had it categorized as a saison, and that seemed accurate. Pours cloudy yellow, significant white head. Smells of grass, light citrus, and yeast. Very dry chalky palate that continues those flavors with a dry finish that lingers for a bit. Overall pretty strong, not the best saison, but a fine example.
