Pale yellow white persistent foam. Aroma of hops, flowers, grassy herbs, esters. Medium body. Again flowers, grains, candy sugar, esters, fruits, grassy herbs, spices, ginger. Maybe not a real saison, but these guys are experimenting a lot, the softness makes it dangerous drinkable. Nice belgian ale!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled from Biergenot, BB July 2017, large sample. Served in a trappist glass. Almost clear orange color, short to medium lasting white head. Aroma is spicy, peppery, bit flowery and earthy hop, slight grainy malt, bit hay, slight hint of bubblegum. Bit sweet, slight bitter. Bit caramelly, hay again. Full bodied but with a bit dry finish. Medium carbonation. Im a bit in between whether its a boring brew or a very nice brew, which is kind of strange. I give it the benefit of the doubt and decide I like it.

bionda opaca con schiuma compatta. Leggera ma morbida con note dolci di fiori e buona speziatura, va giù alla grande. La mia preferita del White Pony!

Bottle shared by me and Dutchdrebus with Joes @ weekly tasting. Hazy yellow color with some small particles floating in it, small white head. Smell and taste malts, sweetness, a touch of yeast and a bit weird. Not at all what I expect in a saison really. Hmm, ok beer.
