2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a massive 2.5 finger head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy, slightly musty aroma with some funky brett, pale malt, light fruit and a strong citrus component. Some tangerine, papaya and blood orange along with farmhouse funk and an overwhelmingly strong brett presence. The musty yeast character overpowers the other notes making the aroma a bit one dimensional.
Medium bodied and with strong carbonation and prominent funky brett flavor. One dimensional with all brett and mineral flavor. Musty funky and earthy farmhouse yeast along with very subtle citrus fruit and bready yeast character. The mouthfeel is off and there is a surprising lack of complexity. Disappointing.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Keg @ Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Pours murky yellowy orange, no head. Aroma is yeast and brett. Taste is smooth farmhouse cider, almost no carbonation, faint sour with no saison characteristics whatsoever. A bit mucky and possibly tastes past its best. Unless it’s actually supposed to taste like this?

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This on the other hand is amazing stuff. Great tartness from the yeast that is similar to classic Fantome, overall a huge improvement from the base bottle that I tried.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky light orange pour with a big white head. The nose has a very typical saison character initially with lime and yoghurt, lemongrass and tangy pear juice. Taste: the same with focus on the lime and lactic qualities. Sharp, crisp yeasty, metallic aftertaste. Good saison.
