Thanks northropfrye for sharing. Pours a hazy yellow with tonnes of whipped cream like head. Sweet candy and pastry aromas. Flavours are sweet and citrus at first. Then hoppy and medicinal at the end. Nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle – decants a straw-gold hazed ale in the glass with a frothy white 2 finger cap. Heavy effervescence – be careful how you pour this or you’ll put half of it on the floor in foam. Aroma is both floral and fruity with a touch of earthiness. Spritzy fruity character with a decent pale malt spine and sharp hopping. Flavour is pale malt core with a very hoppy and lightly bitter override – clean, sharp on the palate, short lean finish. Very refreshing and satisfying at the same time.

Bottle thanks to Blutt59. Yellow pour with a large foamy, quickly receding head. Aroma is strongly phenolic, peppery, lemon and straw. Flavor is pepper, phenols, lemon, esters as well. A lot going on here, a really nice saison. Lively carb and dry finish. Thanks Bob!

Beautiful hazy golden body with a huge white frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty, flowery, and citrusy hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries herbal and some spicy notes. Ends with a long bitter/herbal finish. Well done.
