3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at a Salem bar. Nice light aroma with hints of strawberry. Big too-old strawberry presence in the taste, with some vegetable bitterness. Nicer aroma than flavor, lovely mouthfeel.

@ munken i Norrköping. Svagt lukt av jordgubb. Saison smaken försvinner lite. Rabarbern kommer i eftersmaken.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
smells like strawberry ice cream though you can detect the Belgian qualities nice aroma..has that pale yellow saison background but a little more amber and red than usual thin pure white head..tastes like a pretty good saison with over the top fruit flavors..interesting twist on things but not the smoothest blend..feels like it should light and smooth on the palate tingly carbonation..overall a nice dessert or nightcap beer but I wouldn’t want to do a six pack of them it’s a good idea just not well balanced between the saison and the fruitiness..probably would’ve been better as a straight up saison

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose of dusty pale malt and a little strawberry-rhubarb action. Lightly hazy golden with a steady stream of carbonation and a rocky white head. Taste is tart and sweet, strawberries and rhubarb but they’re both about equal with the lemony-peachy base. No big spice here, neither from addition nor from the yeast, save a very faint peppery character, and so the style transgression marks this as more of a fruit beer and less of a saison; yet the fruitiness is simply beautiful, very fresh and natural, as if a bit of puree had been added to every bottle. Does not cloy, no sense of alcohol at all, medium body a little slimy, but balanced and refreshing and really a juicy treat!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Large white head that leaves nice lacing atop hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, strawberry, some spicy. Taste is moderately sweet, strawberry, some bubblegum, light spicy/pepper. Light-medium body, light stickiness. Much more a fruit beer than a saison.
