6,9%, says the wrapped paper that serves as a label. 75 cl bottle. Blonde with a big foamy head. Hoppy, peppery aroma with a touch of vanilla. Hopbitter, grassy, oily flavor. A bit thin, but otherwise superbly balanced. A very pleasant surprise!

750ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki, Big bottles weeks) - shared by Mirjukka and Janne - thanks!
Slightly hazy straw, healthy tight head. Fresh grainy aroma. Grainy, fruity, crisp and uplifting. Crisp and tingly on the tongue, some nettles too in the retronasals. Quite green and farmy, but not vegetal. Organic, husky grains, grassy, crisp, and refreshing - quite a bite in places. Great saison.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Bottle @ Scott’s Summer Saison tasting. Thanks so much Scott! Hazy golden appearance with a white head. Fairly funky, musty, sweet citrusy aroma. Tangy, bready, lemon citrusy, a touch tart flavor. A bit of booze at the finish.

Bottle… Clear yellow ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Good retention. Fruity, yeasty aroma offers peach, apricot and fresh, warm bread with just a whisper of white pepper. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Moderate biscuit and fuzzy fruit sweetness; gentle, interesting, peppery bitterness. The finish is crisp, clean and relatively dry.
