3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. I like the currant seed-like bitterness and the dryness in the finish. However, I don’t like the cloying yeastiness, It reminds me of Leffe Blond.

@ Mikkeller Bar: Trevlig kryddig doft, smaken är kryddig men även lite tvålig. Skulle önske att den var lite torrare.

Bottle. High creamy white lasting head. Cloudy yellow body. Lovely sweet fruity aroma of malt lemon oranges and bisquits. Highly carbonated sweet but with a nice hops shot and apple pear flavors. Long sweet finish.

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.

Semi haxy golden body, white head. Aroma has saison yeast, peppery, nice bouquet. Nice floury yeasty taste and some flowery notes with alcohol. Astringent. Good one.

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).
