3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: A very bright and vibrant golden yellow pour with some nice haze and a fluffy white head.
S: Tons of citrus zestiness, primarily lemons, with a bit of bready malts. There is also a good floral note to the nose which brings out the perception of honey.
T: The combination of mildly sweet and bready malts along with the strong lemon component is quite nice. The floral character is not quite as pronounced as in the nose, but still lends the beer a touch of honey flavor. Perhaps a touch of grass on the back end.
M: Light in body with plenty of effervescence and a little bit of dryness.
D: A really nice, "light" beer for a warm day. I hesitate to say light for a 7.5% beer, but it drinks quite easily and is refreshing.

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.
