4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy rust orange with a thick white head. Lots of visible micro bubbles on the rise. Fresh citrus aroma. Flavors of tangy orange zest and coriander. Full body that coats the pallet with a silky mouthfeel. Long clean refreshing citrus finish, like a sunset in June, lingering with golden citrus hues.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thereís a slight hint of lemon, and a bit of spiciness in the aroma, it pours a hazy straw with very large amounts of carbonation and a fluffy white head. The lemon notes come through a bit more in the flavor, with a strange aftertaste along with it. The spice notes are there as well, and it is exceptionally dry. Iím not sure that the Sorachi Ace is a hop that works well with the rest of the Saison notes. Itís not bad, but Iíve had better.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a large bottle into a snifter glass to sample. The beer had a pretty cloudy straw-gold color with a very large creamy-foamy white head with very good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured grapefruit, citrus, and straw notes with some grain and lemon. It had sweet and bitter taste, with lemon zest, citrus, and a light grain and straw undertone. The body was fairly well carbonated with a dry, thinner mouthfeel.

On tap in a tall tulip. Fine white head. Clings to the glass all the way. Straw yellow with a slight haze. Big tart lemon rind in the nose. Great dry first bite across the palate. Not sure if its the Sorachi, bit thereís a fun funk through the middle. Crisp finish. Great beer!

W aromacie cytrusy, trawa cytrynowa. Barwa złota, mętny, kiepska piana. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Cytrus, trawa cytrynowa. Mocno nasycony, aż szczypie w ustach. Bardzo ciekawy saison.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pale yellow brew. Light and quite fizzy, refreshing, yeasty and with a dry finish. The hops are a bit thin, as are the spices. It is what it is, a pretty good hot summer day brew.
