3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught@Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki) Hazy amber with a smallish, lasting head. Citrus-aromatic nose with earthy saisony notes and aromatic, grapefruity hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, with pale maltiness, Belgian yeast, grapefruit and sourish lemon. Slight overall harshness is present. Medium to full body, soft CO2, reasonably refreshing palate. Ok, but could be better with less hops :).

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear pale orange with small white head. Aroma of very grassy, freshly cut grass and flowers, like a saison. Taste is more grass, citrus hops, grapefruit, slight bit of pepper, bitter-sweet with a nice dry finish. It’s like a stronger, hoppier saison. I could drink a lot of this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is lemon, grassy hops and a little floral. Lemon, earthy must and hops. Kind of hoppy to be a true saison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Orange amber with big, frothy, sudsy, small bubbled white head. Nose is grapefruit up front, lemon, dry chard, a little soapy. Okay flavor, a little conflicted, but not too extreme in any one flavor profile which is a good thing. Definitely nothing close to a saison, though. Well maybe an American one. and what country am i in? sorry i forget sometimes.

Draught. Like someone has mentioned, this is indeed more of a double saison with xtra hops. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours yellow with a huge, slightly off-white head...a loooong lasting head....
Scent is spicy...cloves,banana.
Flavour is unexpected bitter with spice and fruity/hoppiness....dry.
A surprising and different offering...nose says saison, mouth says IPA....

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This tastes more like a double saison with some extra hop kick, rather than an IPA, which is good since I prefer saisons

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours a bright yellow color with a big frothy creamy thick white head that last for awhile and leaves spider webs all over the glass. the aroma is of saison and hops and brett and funk and hops again. the flavor is quite complex because it taste more like a triple with that banana touch and nose and the hops are mostly hidden except for in the middle you can grab their flavor. kind of liked this one but one or two at a time.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Almost clear, honeyish golden coloured, mid-sized loose but stable off-white head, sweet bisquity nose with herbal hops and spicy-yeasty undertones; moderate spicy bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied; lingering dryish fruity and hoppy-bitter finish. A fruity-hoppy finish…
