Appearance: Cloudy bright yellow with a small white head and little lacing.

Taste: Fairly lemony as well with floral notes, grains, pineapples, mild brettanomyces and grassy notes.
Palate: Medium body. Medium to liverly carbonation. Dry. Herbal and lemony finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This reminded me of a lemon sorbet. Loads of sour and tangy lemon with heavy zest without the tanginess to finish. Kind of savoury with very bright citrus. Lemon all over. I dig it

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn (€ 5.90). Hazy, very pale yellow colour. Head massive, bubbly, off-white. Good retention and lacing. The nose is damn refreshing, giving off notes of champagne (initially) and tinned pineapples, peaches and lemon, very juicy, it’s so nice! Tastes as refreshing, with citric fruits and pineapple most dominant, it’s very-very succulent, more sweet than bitter or sour. Light on the body, around average carbonation, dry finish. Excellent drinkability and not a hint of its ABV. Would guess it to be around 5 maybe. A fine Saison!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 Bath #865. Pours a cloudy bright yellow (almost seems like it could glow in the dark) with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of pils, herbs, pine, grass and fruits. Lightly fresh. Taste is dry and fruity. Some nice cereals without being too sweet or floury. Moderately high bitterness. Some meyer lemons. Body is medium, carbonation higher than high and mouthfeel creamy. Overall a nice saison but it could have been a whole lot better with a tame carbonation I think!
