3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow pour with a small white head. Nose is hoppy and fruity - tangerines and apples, notes of peppercorns and a sweet-ish raisin note. Good subtle funk to it as well. Taste predominately funky - a clean fruity bretty character alongside a nice estery and spicy saison yeast. Green apple notes, crisp brett and a nice and bright hoppiness in the finish. This is a really nice, bright and clean saison that I could drink very frequently if it was A) available more and B) not as expensive and C) available in cans that are always cold and located in my fridge.

Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a clear light golden with a thin white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is fresh, spicy and fruity. Taste is spicy and dry, pretty classic. Carbonation was high, body light and finish was spicy. Nice one, again, glad to have been able to sample!
