4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Really this is great. The aroma is a little bit weak, but the flavor is very tasty, almost tripel-like and super easy to put down. I could drink this beer all night long if I could afford it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
What a beer! Nicer with the sediment (go on, mix it all up!) in the glass. I like to drink this out of my Leffe glass. For its strength, and colour, this has a great deal of flavour. And a nice (European) hop bitterness. Rustic! Earthy, of the earth! I wouldn’t recommend it, but I can imagine drinking this outdoors. All in all a high quality beer from a fine brewery.

Opaque yellow-hayish beer with bog foamy head. Well carbonated. Yeasty citric smell with hints of cumin, pepper, coriander and orange. Bready.
Very fresh with a bitter-acid taste. Chewiy breadiness with hints of honey (of course) and citrics.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Yet another entry into my personal BHoF! This brew pours up a hazy amber-gold body and an enormous frothy head that leaves some amazing lacing on the glass. Scents of yeast, grains (like wheat), and fruits. Flavors of wheat and lemons along with subtle spices and something akin to warm butter. This brew is meant to be savored slowly and enjoyed for all the intense flavors and textures that it yields.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden hazy body, white head. This has wheat, sweet malt, some yeast and spicyness on aroma. Taste is way too sweet for saison. Otherwise really nice.
