3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Scarily pale, but persistent tight head and haze to cloudiness makes me happy to give it a 3. Wheaty aroma at first, some slight orval funk, banana later. Crisp palate, carbonation quite harsh. Initial retronasals hint at solvents, like a heady weizenbock. But it’s not heavy or sweet. In fact it’s almost thin and light. That’s aided by the wheatiness, which is everywhere in the taste. Nice fatty hops in the finish, nicely bitter tingle. Not a cookie-cutter saison, not the typical wyelabs taste. But that’s because of the wheat, this has way more wheat than the usual cookie cutter saisons brews. Very easy drinker. Alcohol not obvious apart from the inevitable zigzagging of my walk later. Possible underrate - even 3.2 would seem a bit low. However there were minor flaws in each aspect, even though there were positives with each aspect too.

Long neck bottle from the brewery. Hazy, light yellow with small white head and some lacing. Grapefruit, malt and funky yeast aromas. Peaches and grapefruit, balanced with a malt backbone, a touch of sourness and good carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a long-lasting frothy white head. The aroma is dry citrus fruits leading to a slightly sour, medicinal, aspirin like flavour with some grapefruit citrus and and hint of malt on the palate. From the way I’ve described it it sounds dreadful, but I have to set the record straight and give this beer a big thumbs up. It was certainly flavour packed and uber refreshing.

Ok beer, probably the best one I had at the Grain store today. Simple and enjoyable flavours, but not overly complex. Not bad.
