3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beer DeLuxe Melbourne, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of green melon, brett funk, and crackery malt. Flavour is similar, with lots of underripe green melon, citrus and medium brett funk. Not the most complex, but it works alright. Underripe melon notes dominate. Solid, but nothing overly extraordinary.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. colour is accurate to marketing deScription.
Aroma. A general candied flavour on the nose with mainly flavours of bubblegum and watermelon.
Taste. immediately i taste bitter lemon which is present throughout the the tasting, backed by watermelon and bubblegum.
Overall. quite a good beer and hard for me accurately describe, though the marketing deScription does a good job of describing it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at Mother Kelly’s - London. Pours clear yellow-gold with a creamy white head. Interesting aroma, maybe some tropical fruity bubblegum, lemon, sugary pale bread. Medium sweet flavor with lots of sugary, lightly doughy bread, candied lemon, tangerine, more bubblegum, esters, watermelon, flowers. Medium bodied with fine to average carboantion. Lightly warming in the finish, very sweet, lightly syrupy, with more floral notes, yeast, bubblegum, white grape. Novel, but in the end it sits a bit heavy on the palate and just isn’t that drinkable.

Tap takeover at the Durham. Nice saison, not much funk, easy drinking, finish is not so dry for a saison. Carbonation is only moderate, maybe it’d be higher in the bottle than on tap.

Nice.
