2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy, pale straw colour. Nose is softly spicy with a bit of orange peel as well. The palate is kind of odd with a bit of salty savoury character. Thin palate and very, very weird. It smells okay, but it’s thin and oily at the same time. Kind of fishy tasting - nothing to recommend this one.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Seriously why the hype? It is not tang, too clear, not enough flavor for a saison.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via a trade with bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed golden-brown body and a small, fizzy white head that dissipates. Aroma of honey, pear, oxidation, biscuit, banana and fennel. Taste is pear, caramel, vanilla, earth, toffee. Very fruity and sweet for a saison. Cereal. Medium to lively bubbles. Not super dry. Okay saison at best. Better to think of it as a regular belgian ale, as it is not dry or estery (in the correct way) enough.

Some orange citrus. Solid saison, pretty nice to enjoy with my sandwich.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden with white head, aroma is slight belgian spice and esters. Taste is light ester banana and spices with a slightly sweet middle that finishes dry and rather plain. Not bad flavors, just not many of them.
