3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle. Aroma is fruitty but it’s not supposed to have any fruit in it. Maybe some apple and grape. Taste is crisp right away although the head dissapears quickly. Flavors of lemon, grape peel, spices and sweet malts. Nice tanginess also.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper colored beer, hazy, with a thinner white head. Primarily malty, light fruit, mainly apple, light citrus. Medium bodied, dry, drinkable. Not bad but not all that much of a saison (but I can’t be sure that’s what they were shooting for).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tart, wine-like acid aroma. A rocky head forms over the sparkling clear, dark yellow body. Light body and flavor. Slightly dry palate, no hops come through at any point. Very refreshing and drinkable, but doesn’t really go anywhere that a wine cooler doesn’t go.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
341 ml bottle, bottled Nov. 8, 2002 according to the date code, but label says Spring 2000, so I’m a bit curious about this find at Depanneur Rahman in July 2005. Very cloudy amber colour with a mostly diminishing frothy and fizzy off-white head. Lots of particulate as well. Typical Unibroue fruity and yeasty aroma. Dry, yeasty, sour, and fruity flavours with a dry yeasty finish. Light to medium bodied, very dry mouthfeel, a bit prickly, but very refreshing. Glad I picked this one up.
