3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with Veitafan. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a small off-white and whipped eggwhite-like head. Lots of spices in fruity aroma with cinnamon and some citrus, Very nice. There’s also a lot of spices and flowers in the flavour as well, but in addition dry grassy hops and has a strange bitter taste in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. The aroma is interesting, but feels weird and unbalanced in the mouth.

>Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, massive white head. Smells of cinnamon, clove, bakers yeast and malts. Light to moderate sweet, moderate fruity, alot of different spicy aromas and flavors. Medium bitter, quite grassy. Very interesting saison; alot of stuff going on in this one. I’m not a big fan of cinnamon but it works here

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle. It’s alive this! Slightly gushing my kitchen desk, but in the glass it has a cloudy, glowing slightly yellow-golden look with a massive and everlasting fluffy just off-white top. Have to admit that it looks pretty awesome this. The aroma has a nice sweet-fruity yeasty thing. Some sweet grapefruit with dried orange zest and saison yeast. Smells quite alright also. The taste? Hmm.. A soft infection on the verge, no doubt, with loads of bitter citrus peal and grapefruits. Soft traces of honey near the finish. Somewhat dry in the mouth and it has a flowery and soft pepper-burning aftertaste. Not something I would want to drink loads of, but an interesting and quite complex saison undoubledy. 22.12.2012
