4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich golden straw color with a lively fizzy foam... The nose has great earthy rustic barnyard notes mixed with citrus, pepper and yeasty spice. The palate is everything I want in a saison... straw earthy yeast backbone with touches of honey, citrus, barnyard tang, and some lingering spice that is balanced beautifully of the floral sweetness in the finish !

Bottle back from Sam Diego shared on Easter. Seemed like an appropriate beer for the occasion. Gusher that I had to hold over the sink for a sec. The beer afterwords was plenty tasty. Lots of earth lightly tart. Light citrus flavors lemon. Finish is tast again. Bordering on a light sour.

Pours bright gold into a tulip. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spider lacing to coat surface. Funky earth and citrus aromas. Soft with dusty caramel and funk upfront turning to yeast in the medium length finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy, orange amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is fruity, banana, clove, bubblegum. Medium to heavy on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, ginger, clove, more bubblegum, with a nice spicy finish that lingers for a while. Not as good as the Seizeon Bretta, but very nice on its own.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a big, fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of light tart notes, light fruits, hints of spices, pale and light caramel malts, and light floral hops. Flavors all blend well with everything being light in a good way to make a refreshing saison. Average texture. A cool beer.

Bottle. Clear gold with a huge rocky white head and active carbonation. Aroma is fruity and spicy with lots of saison yeast. Taste is fruity, earthy and rubbery. Crisp and bone dry. Solid but not much to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty cloudy medium orange pour with eighth inch white head, thin but substantial lacind on the glass. Lots of citrus hops in the nose as well as sour robust raspberry and iron. Soft carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel and dry finish. Flavors of green apple, sour berries, cracked pepper and citrus rind. Very refreshing and light.

On draft at the icelandic beer festival. Terrific beer with citrusy and yeasty aromas that scream farmhouse. As with the seizoen bretta the taste really sticks to your mouth and therefore this has a very long finish.

Light yellow/orange with a nice head. Peppery nose with zest and lemons. Acidic and refreshing. Not as spectacular as the bretta but a fantastic saison nonetheless.
