kraddel (9326) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2015
At horecabeurs 2015. Pours clear brown/amber. No real head. Smell is sweet and caramelly. Taste is sharp, bitter and caramel. OK, yet very simple. I’m looking at the bottle, completely puzzled why anyone would think of this as a saison ???? blackisle (2891) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2015
UPDATED: APR 4, 2017 Bottle 25cl.

From a 25cl bottle. pours a dark brown body with a small tan head that did not stay long. Aroma of malts and herbs. Flavors of roasted malts, nuts, herbs, caramels and with hints of raisins. A medium to light body. Somewhat pleasant balance of flavors with some nice nutty finish. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle picked up at Tres Bonne Cuisine, pours a light chestnut color with a thin wavering head. Nose is sweet, akin to a sour red/brown ale, and a little dusty. Malty sweet taste and lighter yeast notes, Faintly sour, but mostly sweet, a little dark fruit shows up. Carbonation level is spot-on. Refreshing and different from the mainstream saisons, sort of like a saison with a little bit of flanders mixed in.

Aroma: Fruity, sweet, very light leather.
Appearance: Opaque brown. Huge, beige head.
Taste: Medium sweet, fruity, dark malts, light spicy.
Palate: Medium body. Sweet finish.
Overall: Quite sweet. Nothing special.
Tap at Delirium Tokyo. Copper coloured, and quite different. Fruity berries in the aroma, maybe almost cherry. Taste is fruity and quite sweet. Doesn’t feel very saison like. No graininess. Quite sweet, caramel. Quite nice but a little too sweet for me to drink more than a small glass.
