Refreshning and strongly spicy beer but unfortunately, the lightness is bothering a bit.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 12/2014
Funky and ’saisony’ aroma with some apricot and yeast. Flavour has grassy tones, some yeast, fruitiness and hints of urinal cake. Finishes with stronger grassy notes. Foamy palate is a bit too high on CO2. Rather tasty and rich saison for this ABV.
