3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from growler. The beer is a slightly hazy golden color with a thick and fluffy white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with a funky yeast character and flavors of pithy citrus, toasted malt and earthy hops. The finish is fruity up front with an herbal yeast and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

33cl bottle at Schouskjelleren, Oslo (shared by Cunningham - thanks!). Slightly hazy golden with a lasting, white head. Deliciously fruity, yeasty aroma with the nice Belgian fruitiness and light spicyness. Moderate sweet with a rather dry, slightly sour bitterness. Surprisingly pleasant, and quite refreshing.

Draft. Lots of orange and citrus with a pepper note. Pour is a cloudy orange color with minimal head. Taste is slightly phenolic with a touch of band aid. Ok but but not grate.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a thick white head. Aroma is lemon, floral notes and faint coriander. Taste is pretty complex for a saison. An almost astringent sweet lemon up front leading to a floral and somewhat more astringent mid palate. The coriander kicks in for the finish. Very pleasant and balanced without the heavy yeast I’ve experienced with other saisons. This one has earned its score.
