3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Organic saison in table beer version and in that sense at least original. Rocky, mousse-like, off-white, sticky head, colour ochre with peachy hue, cloudy. Flowery aroma with sourish wheat (wheat syrup is effectively used here), yeasty, grapefruit, apricot, some soapy hops but also a faint hint of solvents. Taste a light and elegant fruitiness on top of a grainy dryness, in the end a herbal hop bitterishness, and the inevitable thin mouthfeel of a low alcohol beer. Perfect session beer excelling in lightness without becoming dull, which is far from self-evident.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light straw with big fluffy white head. Dry grains, very nice herbs and spices with oregano, thyme, white pepper. Light lemon peel with some resin follow by a doughy taste. Light sweet with dry and spicy bitter finish. Light bodied. Pretty damn tasty for a low alcohol beer. Love it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle under "Avril"naming. Very pleasant, very bready make sit go well with food, but light and unsupposing as to just be a refreshing quaff. Of course the low ABV makes it great for dinner, leaving you well-prepared for something after.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
As "Avril." Pours a hazy straw golden with a very tall, foamy eggshell head that settles slowly and leaves a thicker foamy lace. Nose is zesty and peppery with some peachy, honey, some clove and light banana, with a dash of lemon and grapefruit. Lightly sweet, fairly tart, with some bitterness. Light bodied, effervescent, lightly acidic, a touch oily, with a long yeasty tart and bitter dry finish. Very refreshing, a true session beer, though I paid like $11 for a 750, so that’s not going to go all day. Still, it’s so well made and what I imagine traditional saisons would have been like many years ago, so I will be tempted to grab this in the future.
