3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, thanks to mowbeer for sharing. Quite excitable, hazy blonde with a lingering head; aroma of curacao and wet grass; pleasantly herbaceous with a modest bitterness and more grass in the finish. Just couldn’t quite put my finger on what was missing, perhaps more yeast character

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow, white head. Very light aroma, some banana. Mildly hoppy taste, dry finish. Tastes a bit like a washed out Orval.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dry and quite tardy saison. Lively beer, bit too much CO2. Mild fruitiness, mostly aroma hoppiness.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color with a firm bright white head. High carbonation. A bitterness that starts during the sip and gets stronger into the aftertaste. A fresh beer that gives you a great alternative for a white or weizenbeer on a hot day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Saison for sure but perhaps too sweet for a higher score. Pours a cloudy yellow with a good white head, reasonable lacing. Has that dry sour flavour in the initial moment but is then slightly overcome by the weight of body and sweetness. Carbonation adds a zing. Good but not brilliant.

Ar: Hay, peach, a bit of oxidation - rosy alcohol, perfume - some light clove.
Ap: Hazy orange-amber - medium white head with good retention, leaves a neat ring of foam and an almost-complete, though thin, foam cap.
T: Peach and candied orange peel - floral, grassy - bitter orange and black pepper - hint of clove, some clean, warming alcohol - light cracker malt.
P: Light body with high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Very nice saison - good mix of fruit and spice, with some interesting alcohol and malt notes.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy yellow coloured brew with the thirstquenching abilities of an Belgian Witbier meets the peppery approach of an Belgian Saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle from de Bierkoning. Clear gold pour, with tenacious lacy white head. Aroma is quite grainy, fresh bread crust, light grassy hop, light metallic notes. Taste is grainy, quite bready with light dusty not really even bitter hop flavor. Palate is very dry, light and well carbed. Not bad, but something somewhat reminiscent of an eastern european macro blond ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl from gorgonziner. Hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is saison yeast (but not too spicy), some banana, malt. Taste is citric, yeast and gras. Medium to full body, good carbonation, dry and some bitter finish. I like saisons, this is not the best one, I prefer a bit more spicy, but I liked it

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 330 ml. Pours a beautiful strw blond with persistant white head. Aroma: saison yeast, hops, lavender and citrus (lemon). Taste is hoppy bitter, but not a lot of flavor here. A little drab. Not a terrific saison, but still fairly enjoyable.
