3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s been a bit since I had this beer, but the thing that struck me most was a slightly pepper quality about the palate. Not peppery in a hop way, or even as an assertive note, but a kind of very subtle echo I sensed on the edges of my tongue. The saison wasn’t the best I’d tried, but that was a wholly unique quality for me to find in a beer. Fortunately, it was at a tasting and I was able to learn what it was. Care to guess? Of course--pepper. Quite an eye-opener.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a handsome White head. Aroma is quite strange. Funky and citric. Plenty of acidity on the tongue. Hoppy and tart. Very unusual and quite delicious. Lemony with a bit of pineapple cube sweetness. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from brewdog bar, Sheffield. Cloudy golden small white head. Aroma is lemony and tart on the nose, a lot less sour than the smell suggests, fruity and subtle. Taste is very well balanced, a touch sour, a little sweet and a bit bitter. Lovely mouthfeel, silky and oily, but tingly and refreshing too. Very very nice.

Smakprov örebro ölmässa. Grumlig grågul kulör. Parfymig och tvålig doft med kryddor och citron. Lömsk och gräddig. Inte speciellt smakrik. Tjock munkänsla med diskret smak av frukt och säd.

Bottle in Brewdog Newcastle shared with Pix. Hazy blond with a thin layer of off white froth. Rustic aroma with farmyard, lemon citrus and bread. The taste is similar - bread, lemon, yeast. Very light and refreshing. A fantastic saison.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. Pours an average white and frothy head; nice orange to golden juicy color with a smooth cloudiness. Smells very unique and refined: very fruity and bretty, yeasty, funky, fresh spiced, lemony, and very perfumed, wow. Tastes apple juicy, nice full yeasts, fresh herbs like mint, sweet lemon, almost remembers me a high quality lemon ice tea; the most awesome and balanced tartness which has a great fruity and sweet character, average to medium and nicely dosed sweetness, subtle and balancing average bitterness. Medium carbonated and bodied, juicy. The balance in this one it’s on the highest level, very refreshing, almost makes a style on its own. Really awesome and original stuff, if I see a bottle on the shelf becomes quite difficult not to grab it

Sharp aromas of cow manure. Very complex flavor. Nice cidery acidity, a floral bitterness, tons of yeast fruitiness. This is not in balance, but it is a assault on the palate...in that good way. Like Stanley Kubrick or Dostoevsky.
