4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle: Golden yellow pour with a pillowy white head. Very nice aroma of spicy yeast, honey malt and earth. Some alcohol rounds out the nose. The body is really peppery, which is nice. Some rye adds to the multi-dimensioned body. A very interesting take on the style. Saison is one to go to the fringe with and this beer certainly does that.

Saison bem fiel ao estilo, seca, uma picancia bem interessante no retrogosto, aroma esterificado levemente doce. Muito boa cerveja!

Alla spina. Colore giallo intenso, quasi ambrato, torbido. Schiuma bianca, fine, poco abbondante e poco persistente. Aroma decisamente speziato, gradevole. Soprattutto pepe rosa, leggermente balsamico e miele. GUSTO: prevalentemente speziato e mieloso, con una punta di acidulo note di agrumi. Amaro assente, anzi una nota mielosa di dolce che, insieme alle altre spezie, rende la birra non scontata. Carbonizzazione bassa. Molto dissetante adatta al caldo e hai climi estivi.

Jun í16. A 0.75 l corked/waxed bottle. It poured a bit hazy yellow body with medium to big head. Quite weird, but fine aroma. Apple, peach, coriander, elderflower, regular mineral water, hint of something similar to a cheap citrus radler, but blended quite nicely here with all the components. Flavor was lightly bitter, also, as it got warmer very peppery (most realistic black pepper Iíve ever encountered in a beer) leaving the long hot aftertaste. Every new sip helped it to go away for the new lighter flavors to show up. Light malty sweetness was biscuity, chalky, floral with a hint of cucumbers, coriander, other spices, sunflower seeds. That said, itís obvious couple of sips canít be enough to really understand this one in its full complexity. And itís so weird. Thinner in body, believe it or not after all, smooth (oats I guess), mineral water in the finish as well, besides aforementioned pepper. Wow, this was probably one of the most twisted beers ever, but I enjoyed every bit of it. Extreme complexity for the little ABV, luckily, not another "praised" bland saison. Iím in love with this brewery!

Hienovarainen, aika ohut nokka mutta maku muovautuu kivasti. Hapokas, raikas ja kesšinen.

Bottle thanks to Bob. Hazy copper with a medium sized diminishing white head. Nose has dry flowers, pepper, hay, dust, grain, citrus. Flavour has some rye followed by pepper, hay, bread, flowers, citrus. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, some sweetness, low bitterness. Pepper in the finish. Ok, but a bit fizzy and sweet.
