3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma and Taste: Nice fresh and fruity hoppyness in the nose. The same can be tasted, from the aromatics I would guess that this is mostly Galaxy. Saison esters could be a bit more dominant, especially some earthy notes, but I am just nitpicking. Pleasant bitterness
Appeareance: Pours a bit hazy but great, fine pored head.
Palate: Relatively high carbonation. Very drinkable body ;-)
Overall: Great and nicely balanced.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hop Leaf at home. Dirty hazy yellow pour with big fluffy head - saison-y. Aroma is slightly sweet, honey dew melon - hops? - and usual saison notes of pepper, farm, etc. Taste is a bit hoppier than most saisons, and a bit smoother. Citrus hoppy bitterness and again a slightly honey dew melon taste - unusual but good. Not a bad combo of the two styles but definitely more on the saison side. Would probably get again.

Massiv doft av tallkåda, granskott och grape. Inte mycket kryddor i denna saison. Mer en IPA. Men mixen funkar. Heja Nögne!
