3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden yellow with a good sized white head. The aroma has pale malt, cola notes, dried apricots, peppery spice, tropical fruits and some saison earthy notes. Medium body is very crisp and it has an overabundance of carbonation. The taste starts off with dry malt, citrus zest, tropical fruit, crackers, spice and some rustic saison notes. The finish has lots of spices, mineral notes and bitter hop aspects. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks! Sampled draft @ Italian Beer Week-end / Zwanze 2014 CML. Cheesy fresh hops, light odd yoghurt note, fruity, white gapes. Odd sweetish taste, malt, sugar, candy, yeasty, caramel, spices, fruity, less yoghurt than in the nose, alternative grains, pepper. Bit dull body. Okay, strange fare as used to from Freigeist. Saison? Than again Saison is the vaguest of all beer-styles.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Very huge, ultrafine & dense head, paler golden beer, lacerings. Pickles, whiffs of acetic acid, sorrel. Spicy, dry spices, malts & other grains. Dry finish. Less acidity than the nose suggests. CO², quite present. Maybe medium bodied, quite slick. Long lasting spicy-malty-yeasty main taste, no new aftertaste. Not only it’s not a Saison, it even doesn’t carry the spirit of (strong) Saison.

On tap at Crowbar. Hazy, pale golden. Hay aroma as well as spices. Refreshing, slightly tart fruitiness, but also well- hopped. True to the style.
