Slighty hazy amber color, steady off-white head, good lacing. Bretta and minerals in the nose. Light- bodied. Quite fruity apple, orange etc. Yeast flavors, Bretta. Wild yeast Saison which has something from lambic world and something from saisons. Pretty simple but refreshing.

Orange beer with fluffy head and nice lacing. Aroma is sour with zesty green apples, vanilla and citrus. Taste is quite mild compared to aroma. It has citrus, some sour flavors and apples. High carbonation with medium body. Aroma offered a lot more than taste gave, sadly.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours yellow with a dense white head. Smell of brett, yeast, and a sprucy citrusy herby input, not quite belgian yeast but reminding of it. Taste is a lot better than aroma, actually super good, first of all itís super balanced, and has a great mouthfeel, perfect amount of dryness, maybe just a tiny bit too sweet, a bit of herby input with some bubblegum, and a barnyard feel, reminds me a bit of Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux, but itís 6.5% and a probably the best saison iíve had at 6.5%.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Spicy aroma, christmas spices, clove, orange or persimmon. Pale orange, small tight head. Sweetish palate, quite high carbonation. Donít think swirling would help this, it would just become flat and sticky. Taste not far from the aroma, yeastier, harsher, and the spices a little more subdued. After a swirl it didnít bcome too sticky, fortunately. Still, a sub-par saison.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - batch nr 27 - BB 2015-11-22, at Pikkulintu, 20140326) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was white, large and it lasted long. Aroma had spices, fruitiness,sourness, berries and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, berries, sweetness, sourness, spices, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness, berries and bitterness. The berriness was unpleasant and perhaps the yeast should have had more time to eat the sugars.
