4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Carefully decanted into a Duvel chalice the body is a cloudy light blonde with an enormous vanilla head. Silky sheets of lacing complete the stunning presentation. Aroma of lemony citrus, kiwi, and hints of orange and banana. Floral and herbal notes chime in as do spicy hints of pepper and coriander. Exceptional palate, with the satiny pastoral carbonation that is so vibrant. Taste is dry and herbal, with hints of lime peel, orange, and kiwi. A peppery bite leads into floral and herbal hops. Very pastoral and idyllic. Topnotch!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Aroma is fruity and citric, sweetly floral and tropical, juicy and with hints of yeast esters, fresh, herbal and spicy with a slight medicinal tinge. Rather enticing. Hazy medium golden color, lightly dusted with sediment and with a lasting, creamy head. Flavor is full of spiciness and and tart citrus, with a soft complexity, including fruity notes of lemon, pineapple and melon, turning drier, leafy and faintly hoppy, with a pleasant level of acidity and a low but insistent bitterness lurking in the background. Some lingering tea-like and honeyish flavors. Effervescent mouthfeel, light and airy with a medium-full body. Nice Saison.
