3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy pale yellow body with a large, white, fully lasting head that laces the glass excellently. Strong aroma of spices, Belgian yeast and acidic fruits. Strong flavour that follows the aroma. The yeast profile is clean with very little farmhouse influence. Light sweet, very light acidic and moderate bitter taste. Fairly light-bodied, bone dry and lively carbonated. A simple, crisp and refreshing saison!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2015:
Se si parla di saison non posso che pensare a Glazen Toren.La birra si presenta bionda con un bel cappello di schiuma bianca. Aromi leggeri di pane, vaniglia, pepe e decisi aromi di luppolo con un pompelmo in bella evidenza. La bevuta scorre con un perfetto equilibrio nonostante l’abbondante luppolatura. La birra è secca e beverina grazie alla carbonazione abbondante e il corpo leggero.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First saison of the patio season, oh how I missed this! Pours a hazy light golden or maybe yellow with a thick white head that leaves ultra nice lacing. Nose is of spices, fruits and cereals. Pretty much what you expect from a saion. Taste is lightly sweet but also moderately bitter, offers some wheat, pepper and fruits. Body is medium and carbonation high and prickly. Just a hint too sweet for my taste but other than that it is pretty much a classic saison. Nice!
