3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This saison poured a slightly cloudy, medium yellow colour with a thick, bright white head. Excellent lacing. To the nose there are scents of vanilla, apples, spice, yeast and toast. First sip was smooth with flavours of cinnamon, apple, dough and cereal. Finish is apple pie like with sweet hops on the palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle pour@5e Mondial de la Bičre, Mulhouse - FR. Milky beige, true-to-style saison pour, decent big-poured soapy head. Heavily spiced aroma of condensed coriander seed, chamomile, flowers: tending more towards urinal cake than organic spring meadow, but still leaving room and air for doubt somewhere in between those perfumed pores. Fizzy; slightly fruit-sticky palate. Taste is wheat-driven, fruity and then entirely defined by the spicy components of the yeast and added ginger. Another manageable Italian creative overdrive saison, satiating the need it itself creates in one bottle.
