Golden, white foamy long lasting head. Yeast, lemon, a bit of hops and some alcohol in the nose. Very nice, rich saison sourness to start, notes of citrus that flawlessly blends into an excellent slightly alcoholic hoppy finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served in a tulip glass. Rich canary yellow, slightly hazy, with a huge, forever lasting, fluffy white head. Excellent lacing. Earthy nose, typical saison smell but much more hoppy, more refined and less rustic I’d say: light spices (clove, chamomile, pepper), bread crust, some herbal/medicinal presence, fruity but not too yeasty. Definirely some light lemon tartness in the mouth, again quite fruity (some citrus), good malty sweetness with just a little hint of alchool warming. Bitter and spicy aftertaste. Lively carbonation and medium body. Very good!
