3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Yellow/orange color, large foam. Aromas of dried corn, canned chickpeas, strong citrus aroma that is noticable from across the table. Taste is a little dusty and watery. Corn flavor again, dried oranges. Large bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is cheese (overwhelmingly!), brie, old ripened cheese. Not the best saisonniere I’ve tasted.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice head with fine bubbles. Quite a carbonated beer. Dark yellow colour, yet completely clear. The aroma is dominated by fruit and malt. I’d even dare to say citrus and banana.
For the taste, the notes are also fruity with a citrus freshness, few hints of malt. The aftertaste is bitterness. Not much hops in there.
Distinctive flemish tradition beer, very nice and refreshing, but according to me lacking the "hop punch" season beer usually have.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma is slightly cheesy, has some citric fruitiness, some flowery tones, light honey. Hazy, golden coloured with a white head. The taste is likewise the aroma; quite yeasty with citric/floral hoptones. Medium carbonation. Dry, light-medium bodied. Decent style example, but nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Light straw yellow colour, big white head. A slightly more hoppy version of a saison, and perhaps less dry than some examples. Strong yeasty character, lots of noble hop, then a pleasant bitterness in the finish. Pretty good.
