3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear pale golden to yellow beer topped by a small white head that stays. Itís very fruity on the nose, with lemon juice, grapefruit, tropical notes and a hint of yeast. Itís lightly acidic on the palate, pleasantly carbonated, dry and medium to full bodied. Lemon juice, some pine cones, a little bitterness and a touch of tropical fruits in the flavor. Grapefruit and pepper hints too. Lasting finish. A tad boring in a way, but very refreshing and quenching. 150704

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of slight hefe clove, evened out peppery saison yeast with fantome like lemony pineapple. This beer is super refreshing and perfect tartness, taste is very very balanced with nice earthy, grassy and slightly citrusy hops bundled with a very tropical and lemony saison with a nice tartness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle dated 2015 04 30.
This was poured into a tulip, a nonic and a weizen. I didnít knowwhat it was until now. Review will be from the tulip since this is a saison.
The appearance had a hazy burnt yellow color with a slim one fingerís worth of foamy white head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. Lacing is stringy and messy.
The smell had a sweet to sour lemon, light sour wheat (grainy but sweet and good). Lemon rind with light orange strolls in to amplify a nice balance.
The taste is sweet to sour to having a refined bitter underneath. A dry sweet lemon wheat aftertaste leads into a sticky sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel about it. Carbonation runs smooth and lets up to allow the wheat base to smooth things out.
Overall, as a saison, it works. With the wheat base to amplify the specifics and intrigue saison lovers further, well that helps to make a nice Summer session.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle pours a golden color with a lot of frothy head. Slight sourness that overpowers the rest of the beer a little.

Bottle with friends. Hazy gold pour with plenty of head. Smell is fruity. Taste is sour apple candy. Packers the mouth. Sweet though. Lots of lactose action.

Bottle shared by Dan. Nose is crackery and light toast. A little citrus. Very pale yellow with a large white head. Taste is initially lightly tart with a citrus zest that is just great. A light bitterness. Yummy
