3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very interesting beer. Not like any other Saison I’ve had before. A lot more earthy. A very interesting tasty beer unlike anything else, but I’m sure it won’t be for every one.
24/V/16 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: VII/2017 (2016-623) blackisle (2591) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2015
Clear orange beer, huge creamy yellowish head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, very oxidized, honey, banana peel. MF: lively carbon, medium body. Taste: very sweet and sugary, ripe banana, caramel, malty, oxidized, honey. Aftertaste: more of the same, slightly bitter, mainly oxidized. Has not got much to do with a saison, too much residual sugars and too much fruit esters from the yeast.
Bottle 33cl. Small gusher, cloudy pale amber, large foamy off-white head, looks a bit dirty, mostly diminishing, patchy lacing; sweet malt nose, caramel, bread, yeast, earthy; taste light light heavy sweet, caramellish, malty, spicy notes; full to medium body, oily to sticky texture, average carbonation, aftertaste as in taste with light sour notes, sugary; strange Saison though not unpleasant.

The biggest gusher I’ve ever had. Literally only 2 sips left in the bottle. Thank God I opened this in the kitchen on a clear counter. Beer revealed as being totally underdeveloped, overripe fruit, rough malts. Why the hell did they bottle this. Absolutely a disgrace this is produced and untested.

Draft. This beer has something beautiful from the aroma and the appearance, soft and smooth, it looses a bit in the taste but the esters and the spicy hint are nice, ending a bit dry with hops. Erasmus_ro (2945) - Alabama, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hale orange with a fairly large, yellowish-brown head. Aroma is pale malts, fermented fruit, stuffy overripe berries, some yeasty overripe banana, yeast. A real mess. Not looking forward to having a taste. Fermented fruit and berries, messy, stuffy. Overripe banana. Wooden finish. Unpleasant. Down the drain with this sort of crap. mikske79 (1668) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - SEP 6, 2014
Een donker bier met een goede volle smaak zoals het hoort. Een aanrader om eens te proberen kermis (13492) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours cloudy orange with an off white head. Aroma is vegetal, peas, mange tout, yes certainly the characters of a traditional saison.. Light moderate sweet and bitter flavour. Light medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Weird. deanso (10141) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - AUG 1, 2014
