3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl in snifter . Pours a white nice frothy and thick medium head; colour is a hazy golden with orange reflexes. Smells fruity, malty, leathery, spicy, pepper, funky; strong aroma, sharp and wrapping. Tastes... as you dont expect from the nose!! (it’s actually a bit more delicate and smooth) It’s very fruity, fruit peel, apricot, citrus, juicy, yeasty, still quite very spiced, slighlty lactic (?seems). Medium sweetness, low to medium spicy/bitterness afterwards. Medium bodied, bit syrupy, medium carbonation. A really nice Saison overall, balanced, drinkable and tasty

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gold, white head. Nose is really nice lemon and pepper mixed with saison spice. Flavour is effervescent, felt a bit cottony at first but the bright lemon really shone through. Nice saison, not traditional and pretty hop-centric.
