3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle served in a tulip. Poured a hazy gold with a couple of fingers of white head. Plenty of carbonation. Yeasty aroma with some Belgian spice. Light bodied, dry with a crisp finish. Bit of spice on the finish. Solid saison, but nothing mindblowing.
375 ml brown bottle with some visible sediment in the bottom. Uncapped with a fizz and soon foams up over the top, but it poured adequately sedately.
A: clear golden hue with a semi-durable white head.
Aroma: moderately strong, with too much suggestion of over-ripe, slightly rotten fruit. Some floral tones too.
Flavor: much better and less funky than the aroma suggests. Some bready and nutty notes in addition to ripe soft fruits and lemon. Just a touch of hibiscus showing in the finish and aftertaste.
Feel: medium-light body with medium+ carbonation.
Overall: b careful when uncapping and get past the aroma for an interesting and pleasing ale. abirres (125) - Salamanca, SPAIN - JAN 22, 2017

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2017 Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of caramel, and cereal, light flowers for the hops, light to moderate dough for the yeast, with notes of dried fruit, over ripe pineapple and honey. Head is average sized, frothy, slightly off-white, with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky dark amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter, and carries on with more sweetness. Palate is medium, oily with a small bubble but lively carbonation. A maltier and sweeter Saison type beer, but I do like this Spice Beer Excalibur123 (494) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 26, 2016

A hazed golden saison with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light Brett, light honey notes, coriander, light perfumy notes, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with banana esters, cloves, light mineral notes, light oxidation, OK.

Visual: Pours pale golden orage with a smallish lasting 2mm head, decent fine micro retention, clusters of very fast active streams.Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2016
Nose: yeasty wheat malt sour funk, cotton candy/hibiscus, red field berries. (lvl-8)-pungency
Mid-palate: brightness, hints of chamomile, (lvl-5-sweetness), toffee-toasty barley malt, dissipating short sour-tangy
Finish: bready honey, gentle wheat malt roughness, very subtle bitter hops
Summary: Wow this is a fantastic spice/herb beer. Super sippable, seamless transitions, good complexity and depth along with a smooth mouthfeel. Every sip offers a different texture/taste depending on what you focus on. Although it was a bit $$$, I’m glad I tried it.

On tap at CBC 2013. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Quite sweet with a light bitterness. Light fruity aromas of apples and bananas. Also hints of Belgian yeast. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. ciocanelu (2529) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 23, 2015
Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is fresh, lemony and a bit spicy. Taste seems slightly tart at first but it isn’t, just a bit astringent. It’s mostly spicy, yeasty and slightly bitter on the finish. Body is medium-light with high effervescence. Overall I don’t like it very much, the spices are a bit too strong, the body too light and there is some residual sweetness that doesn’t integrate very well.
