3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
We actually had the older with 4,5% ABV and the new version at 3,6%. They don’t differ much even after a few years of storing. This is a good typical beer from Brekeriet with a classic feel. Easy to drink with some acid and citrus on top of green apples. It’s not Brillant but brilliant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(750ml bottle from Systembolaget, 3.6% ABV listed) Pours lightly hazed blonde wiht a small white ring of bubbles and no lace. Aroma pretty sour and funky, green apple, citrus, white wine, wet hay, wood, gooseberry maybe?, Bretty barnyard hints and some lacto. Flavour moderately sour, green apple, lemon, white wine, orange peel, grassy, lactic, very light pale malt sweetness, sometimes a cheesy hint. Gets pretty oaky towards the finish, bitter herbs, apple skin, a bit of dusty Brett hayloft thing going on in the aftertaste which is bone dry. Fairly light body and light prickling carb. Quite flavourful for the low ABV and reasonable body, maybe the best low alcohol saison I’ve had even if I’d call it a sour...
