3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Closer to a Saison than the Bling is to an IPA - but Iím thinking they are not really trying somehow. Hopefully, that means better things to come - yum!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
.75 bottle@kittyís. Pale yellow hazy. Wheaty pale malty, some citrus, belgy yeasty. Mellow fruity. Soft bodied, yeasty wheaty. Sort of dulled, mellow boring. Unless Iím doing hard farming, or whatever saisons were designed for, I qouldnít ask for this. As a beer, dull and boring.

750ml bottle. Kittyís, Helsinki. Bottled on 040413. Hazy golden color, thin white head. Pear, yeast, wheat, dough in aroma. Flavor has dough, spicy notes, pear, sweetness. Certainly not the beer I was expecting.

No idea why i bought this as it not my style, but really glad i did. Pale straw looking and brilliant white head. Yeasty, grassy and a smidge tart as well. One for the summer months, maybe with some sandies and oysters. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Archive. Pours a champagne colour with a thick tightly bubbled head, laces well, highly carbonated, mild grape aroma, creamy mouth feel, malty with a crisp finish. Not my favourite style but a very good beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. I donít know why this isnít rated higher! Itís a seriously nice saison, maybe not strictly to style given that it has a slightly heavier body than some of the really good ones, but all in all itís uber nice!

Tasted this somewhat hastily but enjoyed it enough to warrant another try. Reminded me of Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen, which is a good sign. Similar phenol characters, similar light cloudiness (more sediment - roll it next time?), strong head.
