3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy pale peach-gold pour with a 2 finger, super creamy off white head. Aroma is loaded with sweet stone fruit, citrus and sweet floral notes, light dusty sweet grain, a touch of pineapple and sharp fruity esters. Flavor is light toast, sweet cereal and seedy notes up front, followed by doughy yeast, sharp citrus and stone fruits, spicy hop notes, pepper, a little too much booziness and slightly bitter lemon-lime finish. Medium body with a slightly chalky, but lightly syrupy feel. Good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Passionfruit explosion on the nose. Sits over pleasant light malt with earthy flavours, and a slight funk typical of the style. Other tropical flavors plus the Sav blanc - typical of the hops - are present, but passionfruit dominates without being overwhelming. Quite a dry palate which is my only complaint. An excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A complex array of aromas float from the glass, including banana peel, lemon, sherbet, lemongrass and pepper. On tasting, the hops are much more prominent, perhaps too much for a saison, but there’s still a complex melange of flavours including boiled lollies and more lemongrass and pepper. Not a classic saison but a great beer - very refined, a pleasant aftertaste and well-hidden alcohol. Bottle from Tru Bru.
