4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really cloudy golden amber body and stable head. Lively aroma, spring time in a glass. Saison yeast, fresh hops, light zesty and citrus aroma, great, great malt base. Wow! Funky, bitter, characterful fermentation, almost Brett like. Orval meets American Pale Ale meets Italian balance. I’m utterly impressed! (Beautiful little bottle, from Saveur Bière)

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Think this is an IPA rather than a golden ale. Cloudy with a big head that dissipated quickly. Initial impressions are of fruitiness then bitterness creeps in. Left lots of lacing. A very pleasant IPA.
