3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle. Pours golden with medium white head. The aroma is too simple and not so perceivable, with hints of herbs and grass. The taste is the typical of seasons, with a finish hoppier than expected but very good!
The body is a way too thin, with medium/high carbonation. Good saison, except for aroma and palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-08-03. Pale lightly hazy pastel yellow, small frothy white head. 3+ Spicy yeasty aroma, grassy touches. 7+ Flavour is light, mild lemony character, muted grass and spice. 6+ Palate is light but it suits the beer, alcohol is very restrained. Less exciting that I had hoped but an enjoyable, mild saison. Cask at GBBF 2010

(Cask@ GBBF). FRUITY esters ...summery haystacks and bubblegum are happily given as your aroma from the hazy starw colored ale ...cream sits nicely a a head. It sinks down just like a Saison should. its dry , its fruity ..crisp , refreshing . good shit.

On tap at GBBF ’10. Pale yellow pour with a long lasting white head. Berries, nuts, plums and blackberry nose. Blackberry, plum pudding and pear flavours. Slight bitterness. Refreshing. I wouldn’t mind a couple of these after a long day toiling the fields.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear golden pour with a lively frothy two finger white head. The aroma holds lotes of herbal spice, citrus, doughy yeast, and an interesting cheesecake like note. Lots of sweet creamy dough in the flavor leads to crisp citrus and more custard-creme brulee-cheesecake. Really weird, but really enjoyable. The palate holds pillowy effervescence and a clean, semi dry finish. One of the more interesting takes on the style I’ve encountered.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is hazy straw color with a thin white head. Looks like cloudy lager. Aroma is light lemon, light hay, light coriander, light champagne, and light funk. I am stressing light because this is a pretty subtle beer. There is an aroma or a quality to this beer that I cannot put into words, but I like it. The flavor is also subtle with notes of hay, light black pepper, light yeast, and a light funk. This beer is subtle, smooth, and really drinkable. Tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle. Pretty clear blond at first pour, topped by a medium white head that leaves some lace. the aroma is floral with some apricot, peach, and spicy hops that make a moderate appearance. The flavor is lightly tart with some bubblegum esters. lightly sweet with a grainy malt flavor, and finishes with a medium-bitter, herbal/floral hoppy side. Light on the palate and decently carbonated, though maybe not quite enough. Good, but not the amazing saison that I was expecting.
