3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, bright white head. Aroma is spicy, peppery yeast, citrus, tart tree and stone fruit, light minerality and nice, sweet floral notes. Flavor starts off with spicy yeast, cereal, bready malt, grass, pepper doughy yeast, then lots of citrus and floral hops come in along with some spiciness toward the slightly bitter finish. Light to medium body with an oily but dry entry, dry finish and medium strength, sharp and blanketing carbonation that suit the beer very nicely. Really good. I usually end up wishing that most stronger Saisons were a little less so, but with the balance leaning more toward the hoppy side, and still having a solid, but not overbearing yeast presence I think this one is right where it needs to be.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasty to be sure but no new tricks up the sleeves, this is a straightforward Saison. Subtle bubblegum and banana, spicy and peppery notes along with some cereal background. I enjoy that it is strong and very dry but not boozy and stinging.

On tap in Bangkok. Golden haze with a decent but not offensive head. Taste is sweet with slight banana. Not near as spicy as other saisons. Great for hot weather.

26.01.2016 şişe, İstanbul.
Görüntü; bulanık sarı, köpük katre kıvamımda topak topak ve çok çekiçi..
Koku; malt, maya, otsu, ferah ve çekici bir kokuya sahip, taze baharatlar..
Tadım; gövde ve gazlılık dengeli, damakta malt, maya, derinden ekşi tınılar, ve bitirişte şerbetçiotu acılığı baskın.
Genel değerlendirme; Gövdesi, kalıcılığı ve kompleks yapısı ile hem ferahlatan hem de orta acı bitirişi ile komplekslik ve derinliğe sahip bir Saison.. Çok iyi..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0.355l. Hazy golden color with large soapy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, wheat, banana, while yeast resembles in a bit funky and sweaty way. Taste starts moderate sweet grainy, follows mild fruity, grassy and peppery with spicy mouth feel and heavy bitter finish. Medium body, thick texture and average carbonation in palate. Nice saison, a bit too harsh...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is mostly yeasty, a bit cloying. Hay, malt sweetness and alcohol. Taste is also mainly yeasty with a weird bitterness without any hops to make it pleasant. Taste is also cloying with a harsh alcohol presence. Body is medium, quite smooth, with high effervescence. Overall it’s a very rustic beer, resembles the traditional belgian pale ales quite a lot, but it’s really not my style of beer.
