Bottle. Hazy orange gold with an off-white foam. Aromas are very yeasty and woody with spiced oranges and some lemon. Flavours are oranges and yeast with soft but sophisticated spiciness. Has a smooth malty body with warming alcohol on the finish. Good.

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..

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75 l bottle at Old Bricks Inn, Jyväskylä. Deep golden color with persistent head. Sweetish, tart, flowery, grassy, herbal and peppery aroma with berryish fruitiness. Very summery aroma. Dry flavor with spicy bitterness, honey, herbs and some fruity berryish notes. Highly carbonated. Pleasant enough, quite typical belgian ale.
