3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Murky golden with a medium, firm head. Spicy nose with coriander and ginger, herby hops, and caramely and pale maltiness. Flavor is herby-hoppy with coriander spiciness and a very dry, long finish. Medium body, fizzy CO2, reasonably refreshing. Something like Saison Dupont with more hops and spices, different yeast, and evend drier finish. Quite nice as such, although I prefer more fruity ones. 2645

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear blond. Very bitter. There’s not much here besides bitterness though. Hops profile doesn’t have a lot of body other than the bitter. Palate is pretty simple. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity aroma, pine apple, tropical, biscuit malts though and interesting yeast. Well developed, light sweet, full mouth feel. Not very bitter. Smooth and drinkable, not quite the freshness I wanted in the aroma. Another high quality brew from these guys! (Sample at Nüetnigenough)
