3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Beer Revolution courtesy of Marcus. It pours burnt orange with a very tall off white head. The aroma is full of fruit, mostly banana and peach with some nice floral and minty notes for balance. The flavor has some spicy clove and fruit basket. The alcohol is noticeable with a big body, but not too sweet as some are of this style. It has a somewhat toasty finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske: Orangebrun øl med en del gærresiduer. Ordentligt hældt en fantastisk flot øl med et stort lækkert skumhoved. Duften er maltet, og minder tydeligt mere om en biere de garde end en saison, desværre. Selvom det er en rigtig god øl der også smager dejligt, når den ikke Dupont saisons højder. Fin.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.75l bottle @ RBNAG11. Pours a clouded copper-orange body with a small filmy sidesticking head. Aroma has yeasty fruit-hints, some pears, apples, apricot and nuts. Average carbonation with a oily mouthfeel. Flavors are also fruity, strange mustard seeds-tones, some apples and nuts before I get some yeasty hints in the somewhat dry finish. Nice stuff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared bottle, RBNAG 2011. Deep golden to amber colour. Main impression of both aroma and flavour is "moderate everything" - but this would probably stand out as a decent saison if sampled on its own, and not in immediate connection with many sours. Decent hops in the finish.
