3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours golden with a haze and a proportionate thin head. The nose has dried fruit, maybe orange peel, cake mixture and grain - typical saison. The taste has more of the orange fruit, grain and a fresh citrus finish. The palate is medium throughout with a nice clean finish. Overall, saison by numbers - great beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle bought at Kihoskh in Copenhagen and shared with Finn during a tasting session. Hazy golden body topped by a rocky, white head. Airy aroma of mid-sweet fruits added by spicy hints. Hoppy treat to the taste buds with spiced and fresh fruits alongside a touch of wheat-like malts. Rounded hop bitter ending. Oily palate. Medium bodied. Summer qualities (Tromsø, 30.05.2012).
