3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy golden with a huge, frothy white head. Aroma has plenty of grass and herbs with some citrus fruitiness and an earthy undertone; it offers something from both yeast and hops. Taste is very dry and crisp, also a bit tart and sour. Flavours are fairly strong for a beer that is this mild. Grassy, herbal spiciness features with some grainy maltiness providing the background. The palate is light to medium bodies, moderately carbonated, not watery. This goes down as a success: very fresh and much depth in taste considering the mildness.

Later on also some herbal spicy notes appears. Nice and quite tasty though considering the quite low abv. Bitter and even some fruity sour notes lingers there in aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (from K Citymarket Kivihaka, Vaasa). Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is quite much citrusy with some slight yeasty and spicy notes to it. Flavour is sweet malts along with citrus and some mild yeasty notes. Quite straight forward "Saison" without the funkiness. Still a very refreshing beer, which probably would be a killer on a warm terrace.
