3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very light, fruity, a little spicy and refreshing. Not my favourite style of beer but very well made, give it a go.

Nicely done Saison. Light and refreshing. Stand out up front wheat flavour with some nice subtle spices of pepper and cloves coming through.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Local Taphouse, listed as "Mona Wet Hopped". Pours a clear golden with a white head. Smells of grass, lemon, hops. Tastes of a light sweetness, small tartness, medium bitterness, and quite salty. Light bodied, oily texture. Interesting, refreshing, but not a favorite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at new sydney hotel in Hobart. Pours hazy pale straw yellow with small head. Fair lace. Aroma of grass, lemon, herbs, hay some spicy clove and only a light touch of funk. Light body, fizzy, acidic and bitter. Finishes crisp, sour and tart, thin and a touch salty. OK for an Aussie seasonal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Hazy straw with a thick white that fades quite quickly. Aroma of lemon syllabub , white pepper, cardamon, cloves, a little Sichaun pepper. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, but it’s a little on the thin side. Sweetish dough, lemony sourness, vibrant spices in a finish that’s quite dry and bitter. Could do with a little more body, but there’s plenty of character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Beer de Luxe. Well balanced saison. Aromas of citrus, honey, vanilla, with hints of butter. Taste is sweet, with sour notes, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Yellow, bubbly, with a frothy head.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Archive. Pale lemon colour with a slight white head and aroams of cloves, bubblegum and spice. The flavour was okay but nothing to get too excited about. As far as saisons go it was middle of the road.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very straight forward belgian pale. Bubblegum and banana without the usual character of a good saison. Decent drinking, but really just a ’there’ beer.
