look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from champagne bottle into a Duvel glass.

Pours light copper with a good creamy head of white foam. Color moves light to dark, bottom to top. Belgian yeast smell, some sugar notes. Light fruity crisp taste. Subtle orange peel on the close. Light malt and citrus wrapped around.

Absolutely delicious.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a stunningly clear orange from the bottle with a bubbly white head that leaves quickly. Smells of hay, grass, citrus and some yeast. Tastes of oranges, some spice and a touch of earthiness. Light, crisp mouth with a decent amount of carbonation. A very traditional, easy-drinking ale that recalls Saison Dupont.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served from a small corked bottle into a small tulip.

Appearance: Slightly hazy amber body topped by a good head and lacing.

Very limited Belgium funk in both the taste and the aroma, but Belgian yeast is evident.
Slightly dry. Very clean finish for style. Well hidden ABV.
