UDBeernut (2871) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
amber hue, two finger head that reduces to lacing cap. scent is dark fruits and dull earthiness. taste is similar with more emphasis on the fruit. mouth is typical Belgian light. slightly sweet, alcohol rears it’s warming self. mmmm... gonna seek this again.

DiarmaidBHK (4541) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2017
Draft at Bridge tap house. Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Leaves trace lacing. Pretty big horse blanket on the nose. Kind of subdued on the tongue. I was hoping this would be a bigger, more imposing beer.

TXBadger (2763) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2017
Bottle from 2015 opened with friends. Lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottom, was careful not to pour it into glass. Pours a mostly clear darker yellow golden color with white head. Champagne yeast, spices, sweetness, and some earthiness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a champagne-like note.

Palme (4541) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 12, 2017
0.75l corked and capped bottle from Etrè. This is a blurry golden-yellow one, aabsolutely packed with tiny particles floating about in the glass, and it has a nice big dense and definitely lasting white top. It smells of saison yeast, soft lime/citric peal, sweet apricots, Belgium and something sweet fruity. Almost peachy in a way. Smells really nice! It has an average - almost creamy carbonation level, and the mouthfeel is somewhat oily. The taste is almost woody and autumn-like. Sweet fruity peaches, pineaple, soft grass and a present almost warming alcohol taste. Yes, really enjoyable! 27.12.2012

13/20 dense, murky, stewy, sour fruits, quite boozy, initially quite carbonated once the cork comes out but that settled down. Belgian farmhouse ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marduk (7182) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 2, 2017
750ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Straight from the bottle. Berries, fruity, sourish and some yeast in aroma. Lots of fruits and berries in taste. Slightly sourish mouthfeel. Covers alcohol very well. Quite drinkable brew.

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 1, 2017
750ml bottle - street tick thanks to Martjoobolut!
Very winey aroma. White pepper hint in the taste. Not saying 8%. Wateryish palate, and carbonation a little low, but that’s better than being a gusher I guess, . A simple and curious saison, and nothing like the one I had way way back. Doesn’t grab me, but there’s nothing wrong with it. Palate just makes it feel a bit dead.

Ysok02 (1398) - Mons, BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2017
Robe brune, mousse peu abondante. Nez assez marqué par le malt torréfié, les fruits secs, les céréales sur un fond houblonné. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée et torréfiée, fine bulle raffraîchissante et longue finale équilibrée. Une belle saison d’hiver.
