3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On the nose it is very similar to white wine, but with just a little more yeast character, the aroma of green fruits and citrus with a light flora finish.
Light in body, initial sweetness finishing very dry, i have had this both draft in the roundhouse in HK and in a bottle, the draft seem sweeter, but the yeast character was a lot more present in the bottled beer - overall a great beer quite sessionable considering it is 7%

Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, light to moderate herbs and dried grass for the hops, barnyard for the yeast, with apple, pear, wood, and vinegar. Head is small, fizzy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes slightly sweet, lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a carbonation between soft and lively and has a slightly dry finish. Fruity at the start but this Saison finishes with a dry and bitter ending.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg - Fork & Brewer, Wellington. Poured a hazy golden straw with a fine, mostly fading white head. Fresh, tart citrus characters dominate with an estery, yeasty complexity and noticeable sauvin aromatics. A dry pithy lemon bitterness presides in a lingering finish sweetened gently by pale malts and yeast. Medium body and carbonation. Good balance, bright and refreshing with a firm mouthfeel and just a touch of latent heat on the back end. Very good traditional profile with the hop character amped up more than typical.

Bottle pop...gusher. Golden cloudy pour, tons of head...it’s going to be a while before I can drink this. Great aroma, dry dusty grapes, melons, tropical fruit, very nice. Taste, a gush of sweetness up front, very flavourful, lemon, bit of melon, some nice hops with a fairly dry finish. Excellent stuff!

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Gummy chews, vitamins, taffy, canned peaches, grape juice and pear juice, honey and simple syrup... some fusel and plastic and skin sweat off-notes. Highly effervescent, medium body, semi-sweet. Simple fruit cocktail pear / peach flavor. Chalky vitamin resemblance in the finish. A mess of a beer. From bottle. SRM 10.
