Bottle shared by Savvy1982 at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting. Thanks! Apple-cider-looking and extremely cloudy. Aroma of spice, apple, citrus, cream. Very dry, with a slight acidic sourness, a little bit of yogurt and apple, herbs-quite herbal. Very nice indeed. JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2003
Dull orange coulour, yeast in suspension. Thick deposit on bottom. Orangey head, too. Yeast and spices whilst pouring. Fresh citrussy smell. Taste is at first fresh citrussy, going over orange rind to bitter herbs, shrubbery. Finer finish, tingling. I cannot find much malt - or body for that matter. Very refreshing, yes - the taste and carbonation help. The whole character is directed towards a summer ale - which is probably why the label shows an Ardennes snowscape... or it wouldn't be Prignon for real.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 This pastoral storyteller, fond of yeasty bonds and orange juice ponds, feels like a product of pure oral tradition coupled with a sane dose of delirium...The tintinnabulation of truthful coriander rides atop the fabulation of boastful citric acid...He even confides that grains of paradise grew plentiful in these humid, damp soils not long ago...He has a silver tongue which has the power to influence and propel with a panoply of audacious affability and gracious quaffability...
Some bottles can get very foamy though and the uberfluffy feel tends to mask these munificent flavors... arminjewell (9688) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pour at Scott’s saison tasting, dark red pour with off white head, aroma has notes of herbs candi sugar, apple, sour fruit, lemon, caramel and toffee, hints of dark berry and oak as well, funky and spice notes come through. Taste is a mix of dark cherry, caramel, toffee, biscuit, bready notes with some candi sugar, green apple, slight oxidation with a sour fruit, and oak middle, finishing fairly sweet but sour, lots of subtleties going on.

Bottle. Fluffy white lasting head. Clear golden body. Spicy malty fruity aroma. Spicy fruity leomon pepper hoppy flavor with har carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. Reddish-amber-honey color with a thin white head. Sour aroma with some lemon. Sweet/tart flavor with lemon and some spiciness. A bit refreshing. Mixing in the yeast adds a touch of vomit that isn’t all that unpleasant. Here’s my take on this beer - it seems like the people who rate it high don’t mention a sour/tart flavor. The people who rate it low notice this. Infection? Who knows. But my bottle wouldn’t have been a bad gueze, but it wasn’t what I was expecting with it’s almost Cantillon like sourness. 3fourths (9349) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Hazy light orange with a white head. Soft nose of some spices, wheat, oranges, coriander. A dullness appears mid drink, but disappears into an orange peel, grapefruit and wheat flavor, with a slightly fizzy palate though a bit thin and a light sweetness throughout. Decent. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A hazy golden coloured beer with a wispy white head. The aroma is funky and peppery typical of the style. The taste is funky with lemony and peppery notes. Funky, interesting and very tasty. Cheers Joe. Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2004
