3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pleasant aroma of lemony hops with a rustic, farmhouse presence and peppery yeast. Pours a clear golden color with a thick, frothy white head. The flavor is really solid, the Sorachi Ace hops provide a nice lemony presence that goes well with the saison’s rustic, peppery, yeasty side, there’s mild bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with a slightly creamy texture and lively carbonation. This is quite solid, I’ll look forward to trying other saisons with Sorachi Ace hops.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy golden, with a frothy white head. Nose is loads of dill. Loads. Some grain and a bit of sweetness too. Flavor is slightly grainy, some more dill, yeasty, a little dank, and a bit of sweet caramel on the mid palate. Finish is dry, a tiny bit tart and a little bitter. Complex, interesting, refreshing. Really good.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with full head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of lemon candies, light honey, and melons. Flavors are similar with a bit of white pepper and a light bitter finish. Fresh and clean. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick white head atop lively hazy straw body.
Unusual aroma; unripe melon, green herbs, floral spice, some coriander seed even with a bit of underlying cereal.
Light body, still alludes to some alcohol, lively but soft carbonation.
Plenty of spice on the body; white pepper phenolics, aniseed, nutmeg/mace, light cracker biscuit malts. Finishes with lingering dryness, moderate bitterness.
Odd combination. Without knowing too much about the hop, it would appear to be quite a funky beer.

Really nice stuff. I wasn’t really expecting this to taste so good. I always walked right past it in stores. I was dumb.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Looks the business with light golden colour, lasting head/lace. Good CO2
Aroma of lemon grass, kaffir lime and slight coconut, with belgian farmhouse yeast notes. Flavour carries on the same with tangy, sprits citrus on the tongue.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
At a tasting. Slightly cloudy and golden. Nice co2. Aroma is of lemon zest. Taste is lemon, grass, hay. The Belgian yeast comes through and it is dry. Bigger abv than one would think but an alcohol taste is not there. Fantastic, I added a bottle to my collection.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle poured into shaker pint. Gushing foamy white head towers over clear yellow liquid. Some lacing is left after it settles. Aroma is of lemons, lemongrass, hay, grass, white pepper, spice, and cracker. Taste follows with the lemon flavors dominating and cracker-dry malts coming on the finish. A light body that’s inflated by the foamy mouth-filling foam, crisp and slightly creamy texture, highly carbonated, dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Couleur or pâle, mousse blanche abondante et épaisse. Le nez est citronné, sur les levures, quelques notes épicées. Bouche sèche, bonne amertume, beaucoup de levure, un côté "paic citron" un peu désagréable. Longueur moyenne, peu aromatique, sur l’amertume. Un peu décevante au final.
