3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy golden amber. Nice fruity nose, like citrus hops with oranges and pineapple juice. Flavor tastes like grapefruit juice and herbs. Finish has a bit of bitterness with some hops and grapefruit peel.
Bottle, 5cl @Beershoppen, Kolding. Pours clear golden yellow with a small, staying creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, black pepper, light apple, thyme, some parsley. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour has fat malts, dryish spiciness, good bitterness, herbal notes. Seriously bitter finish. Extremely drinkable despite the high ABV. Lovely. Erzengel (9760) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2017
Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for sharing! The beer starts mild and fresh. Smooth, round and wheaty. The yeast is a bit funky and spicy, pepper, herbs, very dry. Long smooth wheaty dry aftertaste, round and refreshing, interesting! The herbs are there, fresh and round with the spicy yeast in the back. Nice!

12 fl.oz bottle. A clear golden beer with a small white head. Aroma of herbal spices, rosemary, wheat. Taste of herbal spices, pepper, rosemary, bitter spices, wheat and some yeast in the finish. Nice! tricksta_p (5354) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle from Biernavigatie. Aroma is very herbal with thyme, sage, grassy, yeast, lemon, green tea, mint, bittering hops, and light biscuity malt. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a fairly dry medium bitter finish. Body is medium. Very herbal, not quite they way I prefer my Saison, but this is well-brewed stuff. kajser27 (2087) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 23, 2017

Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-10 getrunken. Jedes Jahr treffen die 3 Brauer sich um dieses Bier zu brauen. Raus kommt ein leckeres Saison. Drperky76 (40) - - JUL 31, 2017
Why did I think a beer brewed with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme would taste good? Drinking this is like getting simoned right in the garfunkel.

15/VII/17 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker), shared @ post-Billies cool-down at 77ships’ place (Antwerpen) - BB: n/a, bottled: II/18/16 (2017-1030) Alengrin (5893) - BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2017
Clear blond to light orange beer, irregular off-white head, very stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity, bit of melons, banana peel, yeasty, bit sweet. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sweet, pretty bitter, fruity, citrus, bit lemony, very grassy, chemical bitterness, orange peel, yeasty. Aftertaste: more dirty (dead?) yeast, alcohol, unpleasant bitterness.
Spiced (or rather ’herbed’) saison-style ale made in collaboration of three of America’s big and very influential names in the world of craft breweries, bottle at 77ships’s place, cheers. Thick, frothy, egg-white, stable head, hazy peach blonde robe with orangey tinge. Aroma of wet leather, unripe peach, green peppercorns, parsley, damp hay, stale urine but not in a bad way, soap, green tea, camomile, turnip - with thyme, rosemary and sage effectuating a ’dry green’ herbal note but hardly distinguishable from one another. Crisp fruity onset, peachy and pineapple-like sweetish notes, sourish touch as well, softish carbo, supple mouthfeel; bready maltiness sustains an earthy presence of the green herbs as well as something green tea-like in the finish, mildly bittering. Accomplished, no surprise seen its pedigree, and way more pleasant than expected based on the list of herbs - though I think adding four different ones is a bit unnecessary.
