3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (Nisha, Kaunas) (6:3+:6:4-:12+=3.1+)
Pale orange, spongy head. Fruity and floral aroma, sweetish. Plasticky malty taste, but not a burnt plastic. Pleasant bitter finish, a gentle bite and tingle. That tingle I like, but the mashiness of the malts, even rice pudding, disturbs me. A bit too messy and raw, but certainly pleasant.

Far from good qualities of saison, but quite refreshing with some citrus hint, light grassy hops. Light sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Drinkable, but thats it
