3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Light sweetish nose, with floral and yeast notes. Dark copper/amber color. Rather sweet initial / complex mid palate with citrus, spice, and some grass / nice moderate sort-of dry finish. Quite a hefty body for a saison, but clean. Very drinkable and pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet mikan, plum, yeast. Caramel malt, orange zest, sour fruit, peppery finish. Pleasant drink, makes me think of a light mikan version of Suruga Bay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught. Muddy orange-brown, minimal head. Super sour nose of citrus fruit, candy, vague hops. Fresh palate. Low carbonation, and yeasty, sour aftertaste. Not as singular as some standout saisons, but not too bad either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows funky saison yeast, light fruit, banana and sweet clean malt. Subtle.
Light fruity flavour with a fair bit of sweetness following. Dries out a bit in the finish.
Carbonation really could be higher.

Big white head. Clear yellow body. Funky floral mealy aroma with resiny notes. Dry funky resiny taste with kiwi and flour notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild mouthfeel. Dry floral kiwi aftertaste with earthy funky notes. Nice, clean, fresh and highly drinkable. (0.25l draft at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen.)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
10oz pour at Mikkeller Bar is a clear, bright gold with one thin ring of white head. Fairly clean nose, floral, some malt, light spice. Flavor is better, sweet, honey, lychee, flowers, light malt, light spice. Watery finish. Not bad but could have had a lot more flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12C. Cloudy gold with a white head. Gentle aroma is dusty with dough and citrus and spices. Light bodied and very soft in the mouth. Taste has bittersweet citrus, sugary dough, some boiled sweets, cloves, pepper. Gently bitter at the fairly dry finish. Spices creep up at the end. Not looking to knock your socks off, just provide some intrigue as you quaff. Good.

Chopp. My saison number 100. Clear yellow like colour, small and short lasting bubbly white head. Aroma has fruit, yeast and mild spice. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour has fruity hops, yeast, bit spice and bit maltiness. Bit thin/mild saison.
