3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An elegant beer, orange-yellow colour, a head is dense, cloudy, big and blond. The nose is fresh and very complex, light malts, oranges, ginger, spices, fruits and some fruitfull sweetness. Taste is aromatic and strongly spicy, orange peels, some refreshning ginger, low sourness and dry malts. Overally, the taste is quite dry with complex and strongly spices. Medium bodied, high carbonation, very fresh and easy to enjoy. The ginger in the beer isn’t my favourite, but in this beer it’s quite nice, the ginger gives the summery, refreshning touch without dominating too much. Unique, and strongly spicy Saison.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, orange peel, banana, and clove. Flavor of spicy yeast, orange peel, and malt. One excellent Saison! Cloudy golden with a small white head. Hyper complex aroma, mostly with spices that stay just on the right side of perfume-like. The spices are backed by bready malt, banana and other tropical fruits, and grassy hops. Sweetish spicy flavour with a good hop flavour and bitterness to match Outstanding complexity!

Pours hazy yellow with low head 3
Aromas of wheat, coriander, bretta, oranges 8
Taste is more tripel than saison. It has a nice wheat malt base, nice sweetness and maybe bit too much carbonation. A bit boozy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by David M., thanks! Hazy yellow with a medium
white head and good lacing. Aroma is of spices, pepper, Saison yeast and malt. Taste is moderately sweet with spices, malt, peppery notes and light tartness. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry. Good beer, but it as the spice profile of a pumpkin ale more than a Saison. Not so drinkable/refreshing because of that. Balance is good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange very cloudy pour with a bit of white head. Sour savory scent, sweet with fermented fruit, yeast, savory herbs and peppercorn. Thick foamy mouth feel, sour feeling finish. Tasty beer. Peppercorns and bretty flavor with some sweet and sour saison-ness. This is great, so so great.
