3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at ZBF 2010.
Cloudy dark golden with creamy head. Rich aroma, we have spicy yeast as well as a hoppiness reminiscent of the American style. I sensed a lot of citric, rubbery balloon hops in the flavour, and don’t feel it’s so much of a Saison. Also the flavour profile seems very clean. Richly hopped as said with high bitterness. Medium bodied.

Shared this w/ SkyCop32. Pours a hazy orangish/gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty orange aftertaste. Like a mellow smooth IPA. Good Beer!

On tap at Beer Temple. Wow. Golden body with medium head. Really hoppy nose. Lots of hops and pine in the taste. Never had a Saison like this before. Really, really nice. Lots of hops, but more rounded and smooth than an IPA. Well done.

75 cl. Bottle. Pours cloudy golden coloured with a nice foamy off white head. Aromas of hops, fruit, yeast, mild spice and a faint hint of musty basement. Flavours of sweet malt, grain, orange fruit, fruity and bitter hops. Lovely beer. Only downside is that the size of the bottle is too small..
