dukeredhair's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 18/20
dukeredhair (243) - California, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Aroma is a tiny bit flatter than expected notes of tropical fruits and flower with sweet malts. Pours amber with a large effervescent head. Taste is a real pleaser, bright fruits mango, pineapple, lavender, vanilla quite sweet but the palate is dry and sparkly which cleanses nicely. I truly refreshing one of a kind beer.

mariojbra (13) - 60810160, BRAZIL - AUG 16, 2017
Aparência dourada, creme pouco persistente, carbonatação alta. O aroma cítrico e de coentro harmoniza com o sabor apimentado.

rejtable (2767) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2017

Ktwse (5026) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Pours hazy brownish amber with fairly tall white head. Aroma of funk, citrus, herbs, spices, coriander and pepper. Taste is spicy and peppery with a light funky and herbal, slightly wheaty finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

martjoobolut (4501) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle, BB 2020 (from etre gourmet). Pours amber with huge whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is fruity, spicy, apricots, Saison yeast. Flavor is sweet and bitter, sugar, apricots, wheat, spices. Finish is bit sugary and bit harsh dry-spicy-apricot bitter. Overall: good.

ironcontra (332) - POLAND - JUN 8, 2017
Heavily floral, lot of sage and thyme and such things, pretty well carbonated and refreshing and those herbal flavors some of yer more classick Belgian yeasts

erikaraeb (256) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2017
Light herby nose followed by quite strong flavours of sage and thyme. Slight tartness on the finish. Rounded, carby body. Definitely get this one while you can.

melush (4222) - SPAIN - MAY 29, 2017
75cl Bottle @ LaBIRRAtorium, Madrid, Spain. Hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma is herbs, fruits, yeast, lemongrass, pine, spices. Taste is herbs, sweet, spices, grapes. Medium body, average carbonation.

SinH4 (4955) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2017 Bottle, Lot 3B M15, BB 2020, I suppose this is the 2017 batch. After pulling the cork out, the beer starts to awake and slowly built up foam. Pours a cloudy dark orange to amber color with a fluffy and large lively head. Aroma is flowery and spicy, rosemary, thyme, dough, peppery yeasts, phenolic-estery, starfruit, herbal as well, a touch of oranges, honey and peppermint in there too. Taste is fruit esters, dough, with aromatic spices, again rosemary, thyme, herbes de provence, peppermint, and some honey again. Super well-hidden alcohol, peppery finish. Oily and silky mouthfeel with a surprisingly low carbonation (which is somehow present, but very fine-bubbled). Long and intense aftertaste of herbes de provence that makes you smack your lips more than just once. As expected from Fantôme, the beer is heavily spiced, but they work out perfectly here, it?s a very aromatic and complex Saison that still retains some thirst-quenching characteristics despite its high alcohol content. Delightful and sublime!

BeerLuvver (112) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Super fresh bottle from the 2017 spring production at Beautiful Beers. Pours a beautiful hazy yellow with a good, long white head pointing towards wheat ingredients. Scent of yeast and light spices. Taste is very refreshing with the typical belgian yeast flavours; light spicy, peppery taste. Lovely malt base off set by light funkiness, fruity, estery and juicy hop flavours. Finishes with a nice bitterness with lingering spices, ready for the next mouthful. Delicious.

mateuszk (2753) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 5, 2017
Bottle, 2013. Light phenols, lots of herbs (thyme, oregano, basil), nice mint in aftertaste, some slight funk present too. Light body, high carbonation, bit funky finish. great saison.
