Unlike any saison I’ve ever tasted. Aroma is spice with a pronounced grapey overlay. Colour is pale yellow with a white head, looks like a pale lager. Spicy and grapey taste, the wine notes really come out.

Light yellow with frothy white head... Aroma of citrus fruits... Flavor is earthy like a saison initially but has dominant notes of citrus, finish of white wine and maybe slightly sour yeast... Nice

Bottle. Poured straw yellow. Lots of carbonation. Yeasty, grape nose. Was akin to a champagne. Fruity, bubbly. Champagne yeast?
Not my favorite but more than drinkable.

This was pretty solid stuff. Hazy golden beer with a frothy, white head. Aromas of grapes and some sour funk. Beer is effervescent and lively with noticeable carbonation. Tastes of champagne, some sour grapes, assorted tart fruits and some barnyard flavors. Sour, yet light, finish. While this is fruity it definitely is more of a saison. Easy to drink, crisp and refreshing. I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would.

Fruit beer? Certainly a saison. Pours a very pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Looked like an adjunct lager but hazier and a head with character. Aroma: musty, vinous, grape skin, slight barnyard funk. Very interesting beer.

Grapes in the nose, slightly soured. I get a little vanilla, maybe marshmallowy texture. Nice palate, thin finish. Took alittle warming up, I’m pretty satisfied.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours pale yellow with medium fluffy white head, and some lacing, Light body, medium carbonation, and light floral aroma. Taste is floral, some grain, hint of grapes, spicy yeast, hint of alcohol, and finishes dry. Reminds me of a dry white wine, dry mead, or dry saison. Not very fruity for a fruit beer.
