3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, orange, figs, hops, citrus and spices.
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with heavy yeast and with a medium/large off-white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, orange and figs; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops, citrus and spices.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Feels like a mix between a regular Belgian ale and a Saison. That fig juice adds a mostly sweet flavour and a very slight ’tart’ that I would simply describe with ’spices’. A great appearance and palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle, no date I could find on it. Served in a Blaugies chalice, the beer pours an orange/amber color with a couple inch off-white head that stuck around for a while. There’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and earthy, the brew smells like wheat/grainy malt, grassiness, figs, peppery spice and some citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some white grape and apple (both sweet and tart) flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, its high but soft carbonation makes it creamy, smooth and easy to drink. I think this is a good overall brew, I liked it. Certainly worth picking up!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75 l bottle from ’Rudat’, best before December 2018. Clear, amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-sourish, moderately fruity, slightly grassy-spicy, a bit funky-dusty aroma of lemon peel, hay and dark fruits (figs). A bit sour, quite fruity, moderately grassy-spicy and a little funky taste of lemon, gooseberry, figs, oak and hints of white grapes, followed by a medium long, moderately tart, slightly grassy-spicy and very dry finish. Thin to medium body, moderately astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very interesting, really refreshing, I like it!
