3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle as Heksen & Trollen. Thanks to Menno. Saison aroma. Pale gold hazy lasting white head. Orange tangerine flavour and a little spiciness. Frankly it’s lovely. Love the spice and the hop. And the satsuma tangerine flavours. Dry, fruity, hoppy saison. Really good.

0.33 bottle from Hoppiness, Koper, Slovenia. Hazy pale golden with small creamy white head. Hops, wood, spices. Wine-like, citrus acidity, wood like aroma. Medium body. Bitter hoppy finish. Nicely dry hopped saison, I wouldn’t mind if it would be more dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
.33l bottle at Majstor, Belgrade. Touch of yeast haze on darker yellow/gold. Good white cream, fruity aroma, juicy hops. Soft, juicy, spiced yeast, bittering hop finish. A bit astringent. Strange, but tasty. Yeast, but not a saison in my book.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33cl. Beautiful in the glass. Hazy gold with a clear sturdy white head. Aroma is dry, sourness is expected in the taste. The taste is less sour than expected, although it has a sour background. All in all it is a beautifully balance between bitterness and sourness. Nice!

Tap at RJ. Aroma intense fruity, citrusy, tangerines, zest, spicy. Light bretty horse blanket. Almost clear golden colour, quite stable white head. Taste showcases similar flavours as aroma. Very nicely balanced, very easily drinkable. The citrusy zesty hops complementing the saison spice and light bretty barnyard. Very good.
