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.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. As "La Saison". 2014 bottle. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Lovely funky aroma with wood, some vinous character, fruitiness, floral touches and a bit of earth. Dry flavor, sourish, funky, a bit floral, fruity, with a bitterish, vinous and slightly spicy finish. Medium-bodied.

Grumsete lyst ferskenfarget med massivt skum som varer lenge. Lukter høy, syrlige epler og litt eddik. Smaker grønt eple og champagne med en litt metallisk ettersmak. God kullsyre som plutselig blir borte.

Pours hazy gold with thinning dissipating head. Aroma of white wine and urinal cakes. Sharp peppery flavor but smooth finish. Really good beer. I'll age it next time but good fresh.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. bottle sampled @ Vini, Birre, Ribelli 2014. Golden hazy citrus. White head. Nose is quite fun, very fruity, lots of berries, light funk. Taste is muted by yeast, thick yeast taste, lightly mineral, touch fruits, only faint funk in the back. Not bad but body & taste are too muted for me for it to excel. Body is thick yeast.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light to moderate straw for the malt, lemon for the malt, heavy barnyard for the yeast, with notes of apple, wood, and vinegar. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, off-white with thick crusty lacing and is fully lasting. Color is muddy, medium yellow amber. Flavor starts heavily acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation, and finishes tart and dry. A nice refreshing Saison verging on a Sour.
