Golden coloured brew. Good sized head, could hold some longer. Bitter and hoopt, a bit simple but not bad.

My Bottom Line:
This fluffy, citrusy Saison lays out cracking straw and growing herbs in a dry and balanced vehicle.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the misty straw blond.
-The flavour profile is delicate and very quenching.
-The hop bitterness is rather generous.
-The citrusy zestiness works well with the Saison yeast.
On tap at Bir&Fud.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served into a Teku. Slightly hazy and pale canary yellow, with some green-ish/olive oil tinges and a bright white head. Light notes of citrus fruits, mainly mandarin, floral hops, white grapes and definitely a strong spicey saison yeast presence. Strong herbal bitterness in the mouth with a very pleasent and dry finish. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Clean, crisp, refreshing. Chapeau Schigi!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle labeled with a "cascade" sticker (maybe a single hop version still without a Ratebeer entry?). Pours slightly hazy golden with a beautiful white head Aroma is malts (biscuits), lemon, spices, yeast, floral notes. Taste is very refreshing, slight acidic and with a good final bitterness and some yeast again. Watery texture, medium body, light carbonation. Would classify it more as a Saison than as a Belgian Ale. Very good nonetheless.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught in Rome on 11th Dec 2013.
Poured a cloudy orange/amber colour with a white head.
I thought this a sweet and sour sort of beer, floral and fruity yet with an undertone of sourness that gave it a bitter finish to every sip.
Highly carbonated it was a little to ’fizzy’ for my palate but I still enjoyed it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a gold hazy colour, small white head. Aroma is medium malty, softly hoppy, medium yeasty, with notes of barnyard, basement and soft notes of cheese. Taste is dominated by salt; quite right at first touch, but gets a bit too aggressive after a while (I was thirstier after drinking this than before!). Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.
