Very nicely balanced. Fruity, spicy with nice malt coming through and some hops to even it out. Well carbed but head retention is poor. Bright beer. Bubblegum. Complex. Nice one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Haand Festival. It’s an unclear, orange colored beer with a lasting, finger-thick, creamy, off-white head. The aroma has citrus peel and pine cones, some saison yeast notes and a little spiced touch I assume is also caused by the yeast. The flavor is appropriately bitter, with citrus and pine cones from the hops, and a spiced yeasty touch giving it the saison impression it should have. Super-silky mouthfeel, almost full-bodied and with a nice carbonation, close to perfection on mouthfeel. Lasting finish with some bitterness and saison-spice/yeast. Overall, it’s a bit sweet, else it’s a dangerously easy drinkable beer with lots of good flavors. Well worth another try if I ever see it again. 130525
