4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy, pale golden body with a foamy, white head kept good and frothy by the stray streams of effervescence bubbling up from within.
Smell: Lightly sweetish, lightly creamyish notes of pilsner and wheat malt. Fresh, inviting blood orange and sweet lemon along with their fruity pals, grape, ’nana, and pear. Big pinch of coriander and fresh-ground black pepper pulling in a little noted earthiness.
Taste: Honeyish, cereal-sweet maltiness atop the doughy pils and soft wheat. Restrained sweetness. Snappy, sharp herbal notes cut with brightly acidic citrus juices and soon softened with spiced pear, banana and white grape. Soft yet lively finish, with final hints of herbs, fruit and piquant spices.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation.
Overall: Plenty of saison goodness to be had here, without the need to resort to spices or unwarranted alcohol levels. If only Philip Seymour Hoffman could have lived long enough to enjoy it. Pity.

Bottle. Yellow hazy pour with white head. Some year, spice and fruit aromas, hint of tartness. More tart influence on flavor, fruit and yeast other flavors, nt overly tart.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Citrus, yeast and a little malty in the aroma. The flavor is most yeast and citrus. Weak bitterness that fills the mouth a long time. But think the beer has too much carbonation unfortunately. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
