3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really nice beer but there was a big separation between draft and the bottle. My draft experience left me wanting the rest of the keg but the bottle was not as memorable.
With that, it lacks the liveliness of other saisons but it really succeeds in different flavors. A little darker than straw and minimal head.
I would drink this again from either draft or bottle but I would go for draft first.
Ar: Green apple, pear, and woodsy spice; a little simple syrup and cotton candy. Ap: Golden and clear; very small off-white head with low retention, leaves a sizable ring of mixed-size bubbles and an isolated nebula of foam in the center. T: Mineral--chalky--and apple; no sweetness; a little bread and saltine crackers, but very faint; floral; bitterness is medium-high and clean; finish is more minerality; very, very clean fermentation profile overall. P: Light body with very high carbonation; bone-dry finish; watery. O: This beer almost comes across as seltzer; while dry and snappy is appropriate for a saison, this beer is just too clean, which when combined with the mineral profile and clean flavor creates a bland, watery impression. zbyszek_cz (133) - POLAND - NOV 1, 2017
Aromat intensywnie kwiatowy z mocną nutką fenolową. Lekka nuta funky i skóry. Może delikatnie miód. W smaku dość gładkie. Słodkawa nuta kwiatowa z przyjemnymi przyprawami. Troszkę funky ale mniej niż w zapachu. Kiepskie nasycenie, takie jakby dogazowane CO2, szczypiące ale szybko się utlenia i nie dodaje pijalności. Piany praktycznie brak. Piwo generalnie bardzo stylowe i fajne z leciutkimi mankamentami. PanMarek (464) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2017
Hazy, dark golden pour with little foam. Strong, yeasty nose with good touches of pear and mild green apple and some cereal / biscuit malt. Crisp texture and active fizz. The flavors bear out the nose with a little more malt, caramel emerging as it warms. Some slight hop bitterness at the end compliments the dryness of the yeast. Some spice and earthiness appear as it warms up. Moderate phenol notes and a touch of white wine. Lacks the mineral notes of Dupont as well as its austerity. The higher ABV seems to reflect the earthier flavors. fombe89 (4093) - Asturias, SPAIN - SEP 13, 2017
On Tap @Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Bruselas 10/09/17. ardeo (565) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2017
Color amarillo corona de espuma blanca, aromas a cereal, sabor malta final dulce cuerpo sedoso.
Bottle 75 cl. Jaune clair un peu trouble et mousse honorable. Nez de "plants", herbes, froment, fruits style citron : la campagne ! Bouche biscuit�e (ouch ouch : square) avec du fruit (citron, abricot), un peu de poivre et une vraiment petite amertume. Carbonatation vive. Je commence a aimer de plus en plus les "Saison" ... I begin to love more and more the "Saison" !

Tap at Moeder Lambic, Brussels. A lovely and very smooth saison. One of the best around. Great colour too. Slight coriander and herb. Old house smell. The Etruscan (710) - Tuscany, ITALY - AUG 13, 2017
White foamy full lasting head. Deep golden colour. Aroma is malty, fruity with pear, apricot and spicy notes. Flavor is moderately malty with light fruity (plume and pear) and spicy and hoppy tones, ending in an herbal finish. Medium bodied. Turboninja (859) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2017

, Tampere, Finland. Quite light, slightly bitter nuances of yeasty malts, sweetish lemon, some green apple. Balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium sweetish caramel malty aftertaste. Medium/light body with light/medium carbonation. Overall, quite light and not too edgy but high quality. Could be considered some kind of a reference saison.
Tap st La Fine Mousse, 22nd June 17. 38 degrees heat and this goes well. Pine and yeast, lemon on the nose. Taste is yeast, grain, bitter citrus pith. Good. Scrumpy369 (959) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 19, 2017
On tap at moeder lambic. Lightly hazy orangeish yellow colour white head with good retention. Nose is hoppy, lightly soapy. Taste is low bitterness. Nothing special.
