4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy glowing, gold with a big champagne like head with fine bubbles. Very active carbonation through the haze. Spelt really comes out in the nose with some faint pear and cherry notes as it warms. Some light banana cream esters too, but not weizen levels. Soft mouthfeel with very active carbonation. Goes down like water really. So smooth and silky and refreshing. Bitterness on the finish but not overly so. Fairly well-balanced without being too sweet.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Jun. ’16. A 0.75 l bottle. It poured lightly hazy yellow body with a big head. Vanilla, sugar, lemon, wheat, some yeast, decent. Flavor was only lightly sour, almost bland. Light wheat notes combined with muddy yeast, a bit stale in that way, but not bad. Only very, very watery and thin with almost no finish. Vinous and yeasty. Boring, almost nothing here.

Bottle at the Delirium saison event. Aroma is great, wheaty, spelt I guess, grainy. Taste is greater, fruity cherry sweetness, grainy crispness, dry and refreshing. Great stuff. Some vanilla ice cream elements. Tiny touch of spice. Lovely.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Opens with a bang rather than a pop or a pffft. Required 1.6L of glass volume to fit the 0.7L of beer. Pleasant saisony aroma. Light grains in the taste. First pour has a fizzy palate, later pours, with yeast have a flatish palate, a bit watery either way. Drinkable, but not grabbing me.
