2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours copper with a thin, white head. The aroma is banana, spice, and yeast. The taste is banana, wheat, lemon, and hops. It was a little heavy. This isn’t one of the better examples of the style. It was okay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Brewdog Soho, rich bright brown with a lacing head, aromas of clove dominate, with barnyard and ginger just below. Palate brings caramel and more spice, touches of lemon and a peppery hoppiness, then a ginger warmth appears in the very slightly over-sweet finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grassy, wheat, saison yeast in the nose. Dark golden pour with thick, fading foam. Moderately sweet taste, citrusy crispness with a yeasty sour finish. Medium body, slightly above average carbonation. High alcohol level provides a warm finish that reminds you of the hops. Good complex flavor. A moderate / mild example, but a good one.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Slightly milky, orangey golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, off-white head. Floral, fruity and minimally spicy aroma, hints of plum, lavender, ginger, clove, a touch of spruce. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty, slightly spicy, minimally soapy floral, hints of ginger and clove, a touch of liquorice. A bit weird - flavours seem to be more artificially spiced than yeast obtained.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Trader Joe’s. Aroma is nice fruity esters and bubblegum. Appearance is clear, beautiful amber orange with nice sparkle, ephemeral white fizzy head and no lacing. Taste is like the fruity ester/bubblegum aroma but also with something like allspice or cinnamon or nutmeg (from the saison-style yeast? the lemon and ginger?) you’d find in a winter warmer. Palate is medium bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation, spicy pepper, lightly tart finish, and slight warming sensation in stomach. Overall,

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
More weizen than saison? Slightly funky baked orange and banana esters; slight spice/pepperiness – ginger? Little too fizzy; orange/lemon peel/marmalade fruitiness (or green pepper?). Short-med finish, v slightly little too thin-feeling. Still, an enjoyable little mini fruit and veg stall
