3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in Jesolo-Italy with Boban. Pours a very cloudy yellowish golden color, medium white cap. Nose is definitely American-hops oriented therefore quite adventurous for this style. Dry citric feel, juicy as well with a background of spices. The mouth stays round, again lemon zest and a frizzy carbonation. It talks pretty much to the USA!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 5%. Pours hazy bright orange with a moderately lasting white head. Aroma of citrus, apricot, hint of hay. Taste is of citrus, peach, apricot, pineapple. Oily mouthfeel, light to medium carbonation. Refreshing, fruity and easy drinking, just lacking some of the characteristics of a saison. More of a fruity pale ale.

decent enough hazy amber beer but a little things and astringent tannins in finish a bit offputting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle. Not too bad at all, lasting head with smooth finish, I don’t normally like this style but this is quite a nice drop.
