3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75 cl bottle in Teku (also tap at Baldin Milano). Pours a medium frothy white head; hazy orange/golden colour. Smells fruity/ripe fruit, wild yeasts, very spicy, floral and slighlty funky. Taste is grainy (is multigrain), apples, citrus (has orange zest), cinammon, gingery; low to medium/sweet, medium/high sourness, very sharp spicyness, especially in the end, with a very definite pepper note. Lively carbonation, sour and spicy finish, towards dry; almost any bitterness, a bit of cider notes. Characterized by the many different spices used, very refreshing, nice to be matched with fish/seafood dishes

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dobre, ladnie wygladajace piwo z lekka metnoscia oraz biala piana. Aromatyczne koloru jasno pomaranczowego. Bukiet slodowo zbozowy. W smaku lekkie ale o wyraznej nucie przyprawowej. Cynamon, kolendra oraz biszkopty. Slod lekko wyczuwalny takze chmiel jest delikatny. Wspolgra tu wszystko mimo tej delikatnosci.

Once again an exciting Partly cloudy golden beer from Baladin, this time a very spicy Saison. Taste and smell of pepper. Full-bodied summer beer with high carbonation.
It s just before you sneeze by the smell sf pepper
Delicious beer without the hops that are in focus

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Saison classica molto speziata nei profumi con un acceso sentore agrumato. Buon equilibrio e corpo medio con una buona beverinità e un finale leggermente pepato.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
May 24, 2014. 750mL bottle at beerbistro. Clear golden yellow with floating particulates. White head. Sweet lemon aroma. Doesn’t seem to have aged well. I remember this being tastier, with no floating particulates. Still quite nice though.

0.75l corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a light cloudy golden looking one, loaded with floaters and sediments. All this under a small quite disappointing off-white top. Smells a bit old. Mild yeasty and definitely fruity sweet. It has a nice peppery spicy touch to it. Lots of ginger and some cardamon. It just needed a little bit of temperature and time in the glass then it opened up. It’s a little it above average on the carbonation level this and it has a thin oily feeling in the mouth. Soft peppery spiced flavors. A good amount of sweetness here. Zesty melon and it lacks in bitterness. Not my cup of saison. A tad to sweet and perhaps even what I will call sugary sweet. 15.01.2014
