4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Rustico in Alexandria. Served in a stange.
Pours a fairly-hazy golden-peach color with a thin, bubbly white head that feel somewhat quickly into a lasting thin collar atop the beer.
The nose started with some light stone fruits beside some light grain and straw. As it warmed, there was a bit of light spice and mild tropical fruit. Along with the slight acidity, the fruits gave off a bit of a kiwi and pineapple impression. Flavor was even better with the acidity picking up and really carrying the flavors through. Beautiful fruit and strong along with a touch of backing pepper and yeasty spice.
Body was light and crisp, really popping. It was incredibly difficult to put this one down. Ultra delicious and one of the best saisons that I’ve ever had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Hazy, bright golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Complex, fruity, floral, yeasty and slightly spicy aroma, notes of bubblegum and sherbet, yellow stone fruit, lemon zest, pollen, a vinous touch, hints of oak, peppery overtones; a bretty touch with "longdrop" notes throughout. Taste is slightly tart, citrusy fruity, spicy, yeasty, white pepper overtones, orange zest, peach peel, bretty bubblegum and piss interludes; cautious oaky and vinous hints in the finish, smooth, soft, though slightly prickling carbonation. Superb balance of a plethora of flavours.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: barnyard, wet hay, zest, some spicy and grassy notes.
Taste: Moderate sourness, moderate to low bitterness.
Flavour hase baked apples, hay, sweet malts.
Bitter and sour aftertaste.
Possible this was not bad, but I didn’t expect so much brett notes from saison. This is not my beer.

BOTTLE 75 CL from CH-303. Vintage 2014. Hazy golden, off-white creamy head. A peppery classic saison aroma, with lots of bretty barnyard notes. The taste dry and spicy, moderately acid, lactic acidity and a nice hoppy bitter finish too. Very good.
