Waxed Bottle from VP CC Vest enjoyed at home
Yellow hazy, massive creamy white head. Smell of yeast esters, spices, grass, flour. A superb saisonish aroma palette. Light sweet, quite dry, spicy and fruity yeast flavors, nice malt base, well balanced. Moderate bitter finish. Totally a very nice saison

nice soft fruit and spice throughout with just a hint of that classic barnyard funk. had side by side w the brett and this was easier drinking and not as prickly, but I still prefer the bretted version just a touch more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a hazy pale yellow straw-hued body with a large white head. Nose is pale malts, wheat, citric peel, hay, bretty stable tones and hints of straw, unripe banana and hints of aceton. Taste is straw, wheat, grains, unripe banana, citric peel, hints of pale malts, white sugar and bretty stable notes. Medium body, high carbonation. Not bad, but compared to the rather stiff price this is not really where it’s at for me. Still, a nice beer all in all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber pour with huge foamy head that fades normally to a thick film and leaves great lacing. Huge spicy yeast aroma with some citrus, peach, bread dough, and flowers. Taste is very yeasty as well. Biscuit dough, lemon, peach, flowers, pepper, and light banana. Foamy carbonation but still very soft on the tongue. Interesting saison.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewfest. Golden with slight haze short fizzy head a little lace. Sweet citrusy pastry aroma with hints of spice. Medium sweet peach and tropical fruit with mild grassy peppery spicy finish. Medium body. Some fruity honey cloy. Very rustic but not necessarily better for it. Excellent flavor, but the rest leaves something to be desired to pull it together.
