3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Light yellow colour, billowing white head, lots of carbonation. Unusual mixture of a very fizzy and dry beer with the rich sweetness of the elderflower. The whole ended up a tiny bit cloying and less drinkable. Interesting though - I’d have it again but wouldn’t necessarily hunt it down.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy pale apricot color, reminding a bit of a ’new wine’ and a fine, bright white head of good stability are absolutely inviting!
A fine aroma hits your nose, offering some hints of brett, a very subtle sweet flowery touch from the sureau flowers and a nice bitterness.
The dry bitterness becomes dominant in the taste without taking the freshness of this thirst-quenching brew. The relatively high carbonation together with the fresh taste make this a perfect summer companion. Nicely balanced, clearly brewed, no wonder this is a gold medal winner!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp saison, the elderflower does not give much in terms of added complexity, but still a refreshing beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home for rating 2222. Hazy light golden with big creamy and fluffy white head, looks like a massive marshmallow on top of my beer, awesome. Nice peppery yeast and some cloves and other spices, light flowery and grassy, a touch of tart lemon, hay, and apple. There’s a light sweet maltbase underneath, but the yeast, flowers and hops are much more in the foreground here. Under medium sweet and bitter with a light tart touch. Medium bodied with over medium carbonation. Good classic saison.
