2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle (Alko, Arkadia)
Initially a really bready aroma, but it quickly becomes doughy, like hoska dough, with the orange peel. Nice hazy marmaladey colour, small brief head. Sweet doughy taste, a bit of the breadiness too, indistinct spiciness. Not refreshing. Thickish palate, moderate carbonation. Meh, not a refreshing saison at all. Fairly pleasant bitter hoppy resin finish, though. A beer that’s best when it’s not in your mouth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Unclear darker golden in color with a whitish head. Garden fruityness, damp old cellar and light spicy notes in aroma. Quite soft mouthfeel. Garden fruits, green nettles, yeasty spicy notes and dusty farmhouse vibes in taste. Tasty brew, and I really like the softness which is present here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. A straw yellow, hazy appearance with a medium-sized head. The aroma offers a combination of pale, grainy maltiness, some spiciness and citrus fruitiness. Taste is light to medium sweet initially, later a bit drier, but still fairly sweet for a saison. Herbal spiciness and some earthy notes mix with sour, aromatic fruitiness. The palate is medium-bodied, very smooth and soft in carbonation. Good, easy drinkability and sufficiently rich in taste also.
