3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lys gul med lavt hvitt skum. I aromaen er det sitron, mild pepper og antydninger av kokos(?!) Smaken byr på de samme opplevelsene. Jeg finner fortsatt dette snodige, men gode kokos innslaget. En vag surhet i tillegg. Lite karbonert. Hadde likt litt mer karbonering. Tunn/medium konsistens.

Another proof positive that American beers are the best in this world! Commercial Brooklyn Brewery, but what a beer! Light hazy lemon colour with the unforgotable taste. Peace of art!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Hazy orange color, huge frothy head. Kiwi and orange blossoms, blackcurrant jam, peppery yeast. Sweetish malt aroma. Dryish grainy flavor, slightly papery (only flaw), spritzy fruitiness. Strong ripe kiwis and some citrusy/apricoty acidity in the finish. Yeasty/fruity late aftertaste. Quite light but quenching. Loads of carbonation. Green hoppy burbs afterwards. Pretty good, actually. Not your typical saison.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.355 l bottle from local Gall & Gall (and not the ridiciously overpriced one imported to Germany by Braufactum), 7.2 % abv, bottled in march 2015 (almost six months old). Clear, pale golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Weak, grassy-fruity aroma of lemon, grapefruit and straw. Weak, sweetish, grassy-fruity aroma of lemon, grapefruit and straw, followed by a slightly bitter, grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Not really impressive, is probably already past his hop prime. Still refreshing and tasty but rather mild. Sad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden color with a citrus champagne like aroma. Taste is light, lemon zest, and easy drinking. More bubbly and champagne like. Dry, and grassy, typical of the style.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with generous foamy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with spices. A bit of tropical fruit in the flavor along with a touch of bitterness and spices. Really well balanced. Light to medium bodied with creamy texture. Quite good.
