COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another pairing of hops and citrus. The juicy fruit punch of Motueka hops is offset by the zing of fresh lime zest; all backed up by a classic Saison yeast character.

imdownthepub (10488) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Oeno, Cirencester, Gloucs. Pale gold with white head. There is a fruity, slightly sicky aroma on opening and this does follow into the beer. Light, with a fruit cocktail type flavour, sweetish then an overlying sourish note. The combination isn’t great in this case unfortunately.

johndoughty (4001) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. My first from this brewery. Cloudy yellow with a medium body. Fruity and left some sediment. A reasonable if not very exciting example of this style.

Holmen1 (2581) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
0,33 flaske, kjøpt på Prohibition Wines (thanks, Steve!) og delt med Steve og Ovesen: kort filmskum, uklar strågul. Lett aroma av lime, litt pepper og gjær. Lett munnfylde, god å drikke. Smaker limejuice, furunål, litt pepper og har en tørr og lett bitter ettersmak. OK men ingen stor saison - mangler personlighet.

Cimbasso (121) - - AUG 17, 2014
A cloudy yellow colour with a quite thickly textured white head. Pleasant aroma of yeast and citrus. The taste is quite grassy with a dry bitterness and hints of tropical fruit, dominated by lime. Nicely carbonated and very easy to drink, but perhaps a little too much like a fruit punch. Well balanced, but quite dry for a Saison beer.

Holmen2 (1016) - NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Hazy, pale greyish yellow. Thin white head and lacing. Aroma and taste of lime, lemonade, pepper and mint. Fizzy mouthfeel. Pine, lime juice and some bitterness in aftertaste.

JulienHuxley (3288) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle from the bierkoning, bottled on 24/04/14. Pale hazy yellow pour with nice white head. Aroma is grainy, yeasty, nice subtle citrusy notes, not too hoppy. Taste is bitter, light citrus, tons of grassy flavors, light grain, quite dry, no malt sweetness. Palate is very light, good carb. Kind of a mix between a pale ale and a saison, which I assume was the objective. Easy drinking, yet fails to blow me away.

yngwie (13808) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. A hazy, yellow beer topped by a small, white head. The aroma is soft and fruity, with a herbal touch, almost like lime but not quite. There’s a nice peppery touch and a yeasty hint too. Saison yeast and black pepper, lime and a herbal and grassy touch too. Full body, soft carbonation and quite dry. Lasting finish with a nice bitterness and a good saison yeast touch. Sure a beer I could repeat some times. 140717
