3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from wine warehouse. I suppose for years I thought I tried this one and that's why haven't picked it up, but apparently not so here we go. Pours hazy golden with the small white head. Aroma of lemon, bubblegum, indiscernible fruit. Taste is a mild soap, fruit, grasses. This is tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from LCBO. BB Nov 2018. Pours barely translucent with big white head that fizzes off quickly. The aroma is strangely pickled cucumbery and citric, the Sorachi Ace is definitely playing leading role here. Can’t say I’m enjoying it too much but I do somewhat like it in a kinky way. Tastes juicy, weird limey? bitter and salty notes. Pretty malty too. Super crisp on the palate. Lightish medium body. Finishes not exactly ’crackingly’ or bone dry, but dry enough. Was expecting it to be better to be honest. It’s not a background beer as I like my Saisons, it definitely begs for attention.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to celebrate H's third child. Light honey colour with minimal white head. Unusual aromas of eucalyptus, lemon rind and pith, along with some spicy hop. Similarly unusual flavours of eucalyptus, honey, lemon rind and pith, spicy hop finish. Very dry start, slightly under carbonated, simplistic structure. Quite a highly rated beer, but it doesn't have much depth in its structure to excite me.

355 ml, bottle conditioned. Yellow, hazy, very thin head, low carbonation, loads of powdery sediments floating around. Aroma is grassy, floral and spicy. Mouthfeel is bitter and carbonated, long bitter aftertaste. Flavours are spice, lime zest, grass and loads of SA hops. Interesting beer more than sessionable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unfiltered couldy peech look with strong white foam. Aromas are very fruity and sweet hoppy, with hints of grass, orange and lemon, it definatly has that soft citrus hop aromas going on. medium/full body with bitting trough texture leaving bit hop, spice, bitter finish. Taste is on the sharp bitter side with mainly hops, and quite bitter hops, still has some orange and citrus notes to it. Overall, nice beer! Do quite like it and recomend it to try, just way more bitter than other saisons I had.

Maku kuin kaunista kusista saippuaa. Ei ihan suoraan selviä miten kääntyy, mutta selvästi jatkoon.
