3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle
Yellow to orange slightly hazy beer with big dense persistent white head leaving lacing. Aroma has black currant bush, grapefruit, yeast, funkiness and sweet malts. Flavor has black currant, grapefruit, yeast and orange. Palate is full and foamy and bitter. Finish has quite strong bitterness. Aftertaste has black currant, grapefruit, yeast, malts, orange, gooseberry and herbal bitterness. A bit too much of black currant but a decent heavyish modern saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass. Hazy golden with a nice white foam. Pungent citrus and spiciness, quite phenolic, a bit grainy, some other vague fruity notes...oranges, mango, a bit grainy. Medium body with full, rounded carbonation. The flavour follows the nose, a bit more aggressive and a bit less fruity; dry with fairly good bitterness and a long, pungent finish. Quite good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5L bottle from Greek e-shop
Hazy yellow to golden with average dense head, lasting and very beautiful. Aroma is pineapple and notes of tropical fruits, some yeasty aroma thought not estery or phenolic at all. Taste is hay sweet-ish, earthy, light colored caramel with bitter finish and long bitter aftertaste.
Carbonation is medium to high.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruit ride this New World Saison’s expansive effervescence, surveying rustic undercurrents and doughy yeast till resinous bitterness conquers the finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mountain of foam tops the shiny yellow haze.
-The rusticity is reminiscent of wet hay.
-The resinous hops coincide with the brettanomyces flavors in the finish.
-Doughy yeast takes a little too much room in the flavor profile for my tastes.
-Fruitiness is quite citrusy as well, with starfruit connotations.
