2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Nose is peach, lemon sorbet, mango more like an IPA than a saison.
Taste is floral, tropical fruits leading to a yeasty, hay like slightly pine finish. Mouthfeel is a little thin.
A disjointed beer.

Bottle 26/05/2015 Poured with a pale clear, white head. Zesty aroma, citruses, hops, passion fruit. Some serious aromas breaking boundaries as it’s almost IPAish.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Lovely funky aroma, a dry yeastiness and some flowery hops. Light-bodied, very dry, very fruity - a little high in carbonation. Solid hop dose but never overpowering. A very pleasant and drinkable session Saison. 200515

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amarela, quase laranja, levemente turva. Espuma abundante de longa duração. Aroma cítrico de citronela e casca de laranja, que se estende ao sabor. Amarga, na boca ainda tem notas de grapefruit. Infelizmente tem um pouco de cheiro de xixi de gato, característico do lúpulo citra em excesso. Retrogosto amargo com final seco.

On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Cloudy gold with a medium white foam. Aroma of passion fruit, floral, herbs, saison yeasts, esters, good. Flavour is medium bitter, dry and clean in the end, easy to drink. Low body, watery, high carbonation. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bb2/2015, ta idiosaisonkrasie! Near golden yellow pour, generous froth. Strikes an expert balance between dry saison fruitiness, a quenching level of attentuation and soapy exotic dryhop at a sessionable abv. Hints of chalky peach blossom and hand soap in aroma are ideally transformed into a pleasing pollen bitterness, orchard fruit peel and unripe mango, grapefruit zest contouring more herbal grasses and supporting gentrified funk. Hop profile going on APA. Expert execution makes up for a slight lack of unique terroir character.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big white head. Clear yellow body with fast carbonation. Spicy
citric cedar wood aroma with mealy notes. Dry resiny strawy
fruity taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel.
Dry papery spicy aftertaste with herbal notes. It’s ok, but low
on flavour and too dry and sharp. (0.33l bottle, forget where

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dirt cheap discounted takeout from Craft Beer Co. Brighton, 01/01/15. Handsome yellow can attractive to the touch. Maybe my new favourite beer. Pissed on flowers, tomato vine, Jelly Tot bouquet reinforced with soapy shower gel hop and almost smoked chaffy malt in the mouth. Hint of peppery spice and crackers. Saison in the loosest possible sense. Magnificent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa in Rome. Cloudy gold with a firm white head. Strong American hop aroma impression is tropical / melon-like, yeast is strongly doughy, lightly musty and phenolic. Medium-light body with a lightly sweet approach turning stark and quick across the middle, drying / bitter finish is watery and thin and short. It’s strongly bitter and fruity in the way of American Session IPA and not at all like traditional Belgian Saison.
