Golden, almost transparent colour, big white lively head. Peppery nose (thin) and taste along with hoppy pine, grapefruit and a firm dry bitterness. Very high carbonation that interferes badly with the taste, light body. First one from Emelisse that I don’t particularly like...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big and blond firm foamy head. Yeasty, citrus-fruity, lemony and zesty aroma with notes of wheat, white bread and doughy malt. Bitter and delicately sweet flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry and delicately malty taste with fruity and slightly flowery hops, including notes of citrus and grapefruit; dry and bitter finish with hoppy and slightly peppery yeasty spice. A tad harsh but also quite likeable. 26.VIII.14

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of fruits, spicy yeast, bit peppery, slight malt. Flavour is fruity and yeasty, light sweetness, with a light bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasant Saison, but the yeast could be a bit more wild.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Hazy gold pour with extremely lacy white head. Aroma is really yeasty, fruity and spicy yeast, lots of black pepper, hints of banana, strong wheaty notes, bready, ginger and clove. Taste is spicy and wheaty, really grainy, luckily it is pretty low abv so it isn’t cloying, but you could certainly use a bit more dryness and hoppiness here. Palate is light-med bodied, with good carbonation.
