3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Bottled on 2014/08/22. From a trade with jcnielsen. So big thank you Justin!
Hazy yellow golden colour with a big foamy white head.
Mild citrus, mild yeast, mild spices and mild malt but all those put together creates a great aroma to this beer. A great saisony aroma. The flavour is dry malt, spices, mild herbal hops and some mild bitterness. Very nice Saison. Not an American style one but a Belgian style Saison.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: lemony yellow, lightly hazed, with a frothy, creamy, bright white head and tons of lace, nice threads of carb. Aroma: peppery and delicately sharp, with tart fruit (passion fruit, light pineapple, grapefruit, tangeringe), with an undertone of vanilla and almonds as it warms. Taste: juicy with fruit notes, yet somehow dry and spritzy like champagne, with pepper, citrus, and light wood. Finish: dry and bright, with zingy spice and tart fruit, then a lovely (and expected) yeasty saison funk undertone. Notes: A great example of the style. Would seek out others from this brewery based on this beer alone. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.
