Bottle shared at Natifest 10. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head. The aroma and flavor have some honey and fruits with yeast tagging along. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. It’s an interesting beer, but after tasting this brewery’s Saison de Lente and Saison Rue, my expectations were sky high!

Caged and Corked 750ml bottle... # 1394 of 2157
Appearance: Copper orange body with almost no head. Some swirls of lace but they are few and far in btw.
Smell: Belgian candied sugar, belgian yeast, pale malt, a touch of sweetness and a touch of citrus.
Taste: Not my cup of tea which is dissappointing. Sweet malt dominates and isn’t very enjoyable. The sweetness and citrus come forward for a second towards the end. Pear and white grape notes are nice.
Mouthfeel: Simply not enough carbonation....I don’t care if its 11.00% this brew needs more carbonation.
Drinkability: Bad mouthfeel and bad flavor = poor drinkability.
A big miss in its present state. Perhaps putting some age on this bottle would help as the excessive amount of sugar might get used up and the brew might get a touch dryer / sharper. It actually does taste like it has the potential to be pretty nice in a few years. I regret opening it now but I wanted a fresh baseline.

A Mes rate. Bottle at home thanks to Mr & Mrs Fonefan.SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Clean gold with a good white head, looks inviting. Alcohol, yeast and malt aroma. Sweet and faintly tart. Hints of marmalade, plenty of rest sugar, big yeasty finish. Some grain in the aftertaste. Interesting but not outstanding.
Bottle shared by hellbilly. Deep gold color with little head. Sweet fruit, spice, yeast and a bit of alcohol. Not bad. Thanks Josh! obguthr (6585) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Draft at Brewvival: Apple nose. Clear amber, medium white head. Apple flavor. Little complexity and rather boring. I found no spiciness at all.
