3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A frothy white head dances on top of this pale yellow brew. Slight haze, typical of the style. Hints of lemon, Belgian yeast, spicy hops and fresh grains in the nose. The flavor is awash in balanced complexity, with not nearly as much Belgian funkiness as one would expect; rather, this saison showcases hefty doses of bready grains and spicy hop kisses. The yeast providing just enough phenolics and fruitiness to highlight a lemon character on the finish with just a hint of sweetness. Everything in terrific balance here. Dry, slightly astringent finish, but that is welcome in my ideal saisons. So it’s not as funky as some of the best Belgian versions, but it’s better than a lot of those. This could probably be considered more of a Strong Belgian Pale Ale, but then we’d just be splitting hairs...underrated.

Can that pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Traditional farmhouse aroma a little funk a little grassy and a little malty. Flavor has some banana and more of the aromas in it. Basic farmhouse ale nothing to great but not bad either.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 Veldig god øl, bra smak uten å få en overdøvende smak av alkoholprosenten. Verdt å prøve

Keg. Hazy yellow gold and a thick off white head. Nose is like hay and straw steeped in marzipan. More marzipan in the mouth with some banana leaves. Drinks really nice and belies its ABV.

Tap at the source with willyP and wanderkate. Snifter glass. Cloudy appearance with a pineapple like color. Slight froth. Aroma is a slightly muted spiciness with citrus undertones. Tastes like a near perfect representation of the style. Good citrus lemon notes with the saison spice qualities featured. Well balanced. Highly recommended from a really good brewery.
