3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Clear yellow with big, snowy white head. Nose : Soap, citrus, yeast, straw. Sip : Low density with oily texture. Medium carbonation. The beer is slightly malty comparable to a regular pils with notes of straw and lemon zest. It develops zesty and bitter mouth with some delicate mettalic notes. It is really easy to drink and a good balance between malts, aromas and bitter hops. I would enjoy it much more in the summer though.

330mL bottle, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out floral notes, Belgian yeast, and light hay. Flavour is quite complex, with Belgian yeast, hay, and light floral notes. Quite a bit better than expected -- like a traditional saison should be. Solid stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bit darker than golden, quite hazy. Huge and frothy but not very stable head, some lacing. Aroma is fruity (melon, exotic fruits) and flowery with a hint of spiciness. Not very bright. Taste is a bit more vivid. Sweet entrypoint with exotic fruits, lemon and flowers, herbal freshness, again a bit of spiciness in the background. Slight earthy in the finish, which is dry with a touch of bitterness. Light and easy body with a good amount of carbonation, smooth but still pleasantly lively. Fairly good

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a fairly hazy holden with a medium white head that leaves super nice lacing. Nose is of pink peppercorn, flowers and other kinds of pepper (green?). Taste is of slight dill, more pepper and completely dry. Moderately bitter. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderately high. Crackery cereals in the finish. Good rusticity. Overall a nice saison with just enough elderflowers so that they are noticeable but not too much where you’d get straight pickle juice.
