3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Funky, grassy smell that follows up in the taste. Almost a lemon after taste. Not one of ny favorites. Almost too sweet

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Slightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma is saison yeast, light bretty tones, pale malts and hints of grass. Nice. Taste is fresh floral tones of saison yeast and grassy hops. Very light and drinkable for a saison, as the yeasty tones are a bit subdued and the peppery fusel alcohol - often overpowering in some saison versions - only hinting in the back. Fresh stuff, me like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden beer with a white head. Flowery aroma with notes of elderflower, citrus, apples, white grapes and a whiff of barnyard. Surprisingly soft in the mouth, with grassy notes and a nice medium bitter, slightly tart and very dry finish. Despite the level of the ABV, very much a delicious thirstquencher.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy yellow pour with a small head. Aroma is very nice: fruity esters, saison yeast, banana, over ripe tangerine, ripe pineapple, red apples, tart white grapes, grassy hops - beneath all this, there is a low key brettanomyces aroma, which is really tight and provides some rotten-ish funkiness. Spicy notes of choriander and perhaps nutmeg. The taste is lovely - lots of yeast notes at first with, oranges, doughy, baking yeast, but also notes of lemon juice, apples, cantaloupe. Despite the fact that there is a fair deal of sweetness to the body, the beer has a dry finish. The brettanomyces plays its part at the end of the sip with the dryness, and a funky side notes in the finish. I know I wouldn’t have guessed it if I didn’t know, but now that I know it’s JP brett, I can find some yeast-wise similatities between this and, say, Bam Biere. This beer is lovely.
