3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Joes and Judyvv. Slightly hazy pale yellow color, small soapy white head that diminishes quickly. Smell and taste malts, slightly hoppy but also a bit dishwasher water. Taste lightly malts, again a bit dishwasher water again, slightly herbal, slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Low to average body and carbonation. Very easy drinkable and better than expected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A good alternative if you can’t drink stronger beer. Nice, hoppy citrusy flavour, very reminiscent of a pale ale. Bit abrupt finish, but what can you expect given the low abv?

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Funky citrus, and not in a good way. This is half as good as any other real saison that you’ll find.
