3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Hazy amber color with a medium white head. Somewhat malt-sweet and mostly grainy aroma, with red berries, grass and some Not what i had expected from a brettanomyces Saison, there are hints of brett and lemon in the background as it gets warmer. Flavor however, is moderate tart and lemon acidic, and also has the same characteristic grainy note as in the aroma but balanced and nicely embedded. Also notes of oak, leather, lacto. Lingering lemon and fruity strawberries.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, sampled 2014-06-07) Clear copper color, smallish but lasting and velvety head. Aroma dominated by strawberries and peacy brett; yet remains balanced and pleasant. In the flavor, brett is strongly dominating, with concentrated berry juice, caramely malt, and slight ashiness. Medium+ body, soft CO2. This could be an ok fruit beer, but there’s nothing to make it a saison.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bb11/2015, takk pmgep (EU local swap 7.0). Earthy aroma of old citrus peel, early winter orchard, some dirt. Taste is very close to Dupont: dry hay, contained yeast esters, only with a late soapy note, maybe from the hops. Lively carbonation, distracting somewhat from the yeast’s flavour character. Finishes dry and to the point. Well done copycat hommage to the real deal, without adding anything in terms of local terroir.
