On tap at the brewpub.
Hazy bright yellow pour, with a large white head.
Quite an upfront hoppy aroma with some light citrucy spice. Light corriander, with some light exotic fruit. Lively carb, refreshing, and a bright mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Cheval Blanc. The color is a hazy dirty honey with a thin beige head. The aroma is light not much to discover. The taste is of wheat and hops with some spcies but not enough and some yeast. A good saison but soe ingredients missing.

In short: A very yeasty wild and flowery Saison
How: Cask at brewpub
The look: Opaque peach color topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose is seriously wild, lots of wild yeast and garden flowerss. Taste is banana cake swimming in a lot of wild yeast. Juicy flowery hops provide a smooth bitterness. Finish is not dry despite the strong wild yeast presence. Body is full and fluffy. I don’t think the cask conditioning was a good idea. This beer was good but could have been even better with regular Belgian style carbonation. It’s because of good sessions beers like this one that I now have more fat cells than brain cells
