4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap pours hazy golden amber with silky white head, good retention. Sweetness in nose followed by pepper and grass. Light funked added in the mouth. Medium bodied, and quite enjoyable on the palate. What a treat.

Versata nel bicchiere si distingue subito per la parecchia schiuma, che tende a formarsi velocemente e con non troppa difficoltà tende anche a sparire. Saponosa ed irregolare, non lascia grosse tracce. La birra è arancio, senza irregolarità, bella da vedersi. Al naso arriva il sapore di cantina, odore di legno. Leggera acidità, ed un po’ di frutta. Pesche più che altro. Aroma pulito ma non intenso, anche se abbastanza elegante. Imbocco di miele fresco, nota funky presente. Un po’ di frutta a polpa dolce,intermezzo tropicale, vagamente tropicale. Qualche spezia, e finale amaro e pepato. Buona amarezza, riscaldata dalle spezie e dalla nota funky, quasi brettara. Al palato è dolce, delicata. Carbonatazione vivace come lo stile richiede. Bello il ritorno retrolfatfivo.

On tap at the brewery. Golden color with small white head. Fresh funk, a bit sweet fruits, spicy. Taste is biscuity-doughy, a bit esthery, carbonation is medium. A very solid Saison.

750 ml bottle at home. Pours dark yellow to orange with a small head? Nose is spice and herb, more of a belgian triple than saison. Medium body, herbal and sweet. Taste is malty, spicy. Nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle purchased in California during WCBT. Consumed after San Cisco performance at Triple Rock. Snifter glass. Light golden straw color with a half finger of frothy white head. Aroma of grassy, earthy characteristics and a healthy amount of spices. Gives a bright feeling leading into the first sip. Taste has the quintessential elements of a saison with citrus, spices, and a subtle hop quality. Definite underbelly of yeast funk but offset well by the sweetness of the other flavor elements. Incredibly drinkable...one of the better saisons I’ve had in a long time. Pleasant surprise.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This cloudy yellow-straw coloured beer pours with a huge foamy head. It has a lemon, herbal and spicy fruity flavour, malty and toffee notes followed by a funky barnyard finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge light yellowish, very stable head over well-carbonated, coldhazed, golden beer; end of bottle solid yeast. Sharp "beery" nose, yeast, breaddough, rootspices, coriander. Coriander, wry rootspices (mustard seed, horseradish, ...). Peppery finish, but with sweet orange and strawberry. Brett is absolutely not obvious. Very spritzy, near fizzy carbonation, high attenuation, medium bodied seemingly. Rather unspectacular for Tomme...
