4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 aroma is hops, candy sugar and yeast. hop aroma is quite grassy with light citrus. body is pale straw yellow, a sharp blonde. flavor is huge hop bitterness with a backbone of the soft yeast which is a huge contrast. bitterness lingers and hit of booze rides out long as well. mouthfeel is soft and comforting. this beer is like firecrackers going off all around you, i want to cover my head and hide or maybe even cry. this beer is quite easy to rate as the flavors are so outright and this is obviously even better then the chouffe which is already top 10 for me.
Grassy hop aroma with a little citrus on the side. Crystal clear golden medium yellow with a billowing white head. Pineapple sweetness hits first with a little taste of orange. Then a full on Saison flavor comes bursting in with hay, coriander and a touch of lemon. Nice alcohol bite that cuts through the sweetness and keeps things nice and balanced. A full malt body and tastes develops that adds a lot to the mouthfeel and flavor. Finishes sweet and dry with a little residual earthy bitterness. Very interesting combination of styles done in an excellent way. Pipelori (7) - - MAR 12, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2018 Color dorado oscuro turbio con espuma beige de burbuja muy fina y tersa. Aroma dulce a frutas tropicales, estrés moderados y notas a resinas. Sabor muy balanceado comenzando por dulzor a maltas y ligero caramelo, acompañado de amargor frutal, resinoso. Cuerpo medio-robusto con sensación cálida. Regusto seco sin ser molesto.

Earthy malty IPA at first taste, but then some Belgian on the back... good, not great. Cavie (5063) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2017
Retired? Bottle off the store shelf. Hazy appearance. Some sediment. Tiny bubbles. Some citrus and spicy notes in the aroma. Very dry, hoppy flavor. Spicy notes, fruit, grass. Malt backbone but subdued. Yeast character comes through as fruity esters. Alcohol is hidden but a slight warmth. brigg (743) - New York, USA - DEC 1, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2017 (Bottle) Hazy, rich orange body with a soft, medium off-white head. Aroma is floral and fruity; citrus, tropical fruit, flowers, fall grass. Full bodied; oily and chewy. Flavor has a lot of hops; resin and citrus (orange); wood, cheese, a little funky; complex and a lot of flavors going on.
