4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,75 bottle in Kosovo, courtesy of a Belgian colleague. Authentic golden colour, a bit hazy with a medium-high white foamy head which dissipates quite quickly with some retention. Initial aroma of spices (predominantly pepper), citrus, fresh grass, Belgian yeast. Malty notes in the mouth, spicy overall feel, little sourness, lemon feel, dry and refreshing end. These different notes are very well balanced in the body of one of the best Saisons I have ever had. Fantastic beer!

Cloudy gold pour from the bottle with a foamy head ... moderate retention. Aroma if citrus fruit and floral hops. Smooth, crisp flavor of citrus and malt with a trace of a yeast. A rich body that finishes with the yeast traces and a slight hop bite. Very refreshing.

Dorado pálido con espuma blanca muy densa. Aromas de manzana verde, hierbas y levadura. Cuerpo medio-bajo, inicio afrutado con una ligera y fresca acidez que acaba en un amargor moderado herbal. Muy rica y fácil de beber.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on-tap at Hunger N Thirst.
A - Pours slightly murky orange with a nice one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving thin sheets of lace on the sides of the glass.
S - Smells of bready yeast, black pepper, banana, dash of fruit and some earthy hops. A traditional Belgian saison for sure.
T - Starts off with some mild black pepper spice quickly being joined by the bready malt and fruity yeast and finally the banana and light earthy hop bitterness. Finish is a little sweet with plenty of chewiness, lingering long after the finish.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, effervescent feel with only a faint hint of booze as it warms up.
O - A nice example of a traditional Belgian saison. It has just enough to keep me coming back for more.

Bottled. Pours clear, deep golden with a large, lacing, white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus and bread. Sweet flavor that ends up dry, acidic and bitter. Medium bodied, watery texture and soft carb. A very nice Saison.

Wow quite an impressive saison, silky texture and lovely balance of biscuit malt and apricot fruitiness with a clean finish and dangerously high drinkability :)
