Hazy honey gold with a white creamy, lasting lacy, thick head. Smells of yeast, honey, coriander and pale malt. Medium thin body with soft carbonation. Tastes of yeast, sour with a dry ashy finish. Not bad but feels a bit off

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dense, lightly yellowish head as whipped eggwhite over veiled orangey-golden beer, well carbonated. "Hot" malts, yeast byproducts, quite sharp. Wheat and other grains, spicy-citrussy aromas. Sourish, sharp flavour with yeasty and meaty esters & byproducts. Mandarine Napoléon without the sugar and syrup. In the background, something as thick buttermilk, if you will forgive me the paradox. Sharp MF, very carbonated to fizzy; light to medium bodied with a bit of wheatslickness. A saison seen through foreign, rather American glasses.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours yellow orange with white head. Nose and taste of yeast, white sugar, coriander, lemongrass, hay, banana and bready malt. Medium body. More of a wheat than a saison in my opinion.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Messy yeasty aroma, even though I poured it almost entirely clear. Head was brief. It becomes obvious why in the taste - as it’s positively humming with saison grunge. And upon swallowing there’s an alcoholic and acidic kick. A bit fizzy palate. Rough. Eww. I’m sick of messy saisons. Each one makes me more annoyed than the previous.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Plain and boring. Especially if you’re familiar with "De Molen" beers this flavor profile really starts to annoy because they have 50+ beers or so, and maybe 5 can be called great and original, most of them don’t add anything to their selection, like this one.
