4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just started to get into Saisons and have found them to be extremely refreshing. This is one of the best. A nice cloudy golden pour with a huge white head. Nice lacing on my glass. Great aroma of bread, honey, citrus, and black pepper. A wonderful refreshing brew with spices and tartness. Perfect combination.

4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with an enormous white long lasting head that leaves a lot of lacing. Nose is faint fruit. Body is light. Taste is dry but presents with a light Belgian candy sugar cooked pleasant taste. Hop bitterness is mild and long lasting. If this the benchmark, then many American Saisons are intense and enjoyable for what they are.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with thick, bubbly, long lasting head. A bit of sediment in this one. Nice pour. Aroma of orange, spices, coriander, a bit of wheat and a mild yeasty funk. Taste is smooth and balanced. Nice orangey sweetness, spices and transitions to a mildly bitter and dry finish. Balanced body with light mouthfeel and high carbonation. Great saison.

Lys brun farge med hvitt skum. Lukter banan, alkohol og noe sitrus. Ganske mild i smak. Og også mild bitter avslutning.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml bottle from Masuyo in Asagaya, Tokyo. Poured into a snifter. Gorgeous hazy orange blonde color with a nice frothy off-white head that hangs around for most of the beer. Spectacular lacing throughout. Strong barnyard, wet straw, murky cellar, and fallen trees covered with moss after a light rain aromas present. A bit of papaya, coriander, cinnamon and peppercorns present as it warms to room temperature. There is a beautiful sour undertone throughout that becomes more prevalent after coming to room temperature as well. Mostly sour and peppery on the palate with an underlying fruit sweetness albeit minor. Long dry, peppery finish with a sour start. Superb farmhouse ale.

It had a fruity start but the aftertaste seemed earthy. Decent balance but not a fan of the aroma

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
huge creamy frothy white head. excellent lacing. mostly lasting. sparkling hazy thick dark yellow body. aroma: light bread, heavy hoppy, citrus orange, honey and alcohol. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Inicialmente aroma lembrou pale lager comercial. Depois trouxe a memória a Dupont biologique, mas sem a presença de plástico, lembrando geléia de laranja. Dulçor de mel e laranja, com background de maçã. Campestre, mas diferente da saison tradicional. Leve presença de plástico (proveniente de petróleo) no paladar, mas nada que prejudique as nuances principais da cerveja. 110 s

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. A strange combination of sour beer, a lager and some hoppy ale. Slightly cloudy, pale golde with frothy head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma of banana, orange, lemon and yeast. Mixed feelings. Expected much more WOW effect. Should try it in a bottle.
