Color is a hazy golden yellow with a med white head. I smell fruits, yeast and malt. I taste all of the same with spice, a little banana and light hops in the finish. Very good saison.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: cloudy gold. Good persistent white heard. Musty, funky, stale, wet animal nose. Tropical and stone fruit underneath but dull. Lift citrus and blossom. Slightly sweet, not bitter or sour. Slightly heavy palate and not refreshing. Loads of light gas but not enough to make this bright and refreshing. Short and lacking weight of flavour.
Very disappointing. Expected much more. Maybe a stale bottle.

Tap at Original Gravity in San Jose. Color is so clean and golden it’s kind of scary. Aroma is classic funky saison. Clean and crisp. Flavor is exceptional of sweetness, followed by funk, followed by mild spice. Smooth finish, mild but slick and semi-oily mouthfeel. Excellentness. Wow. Best saison I’ve had in terms of classic example of the style.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff okt-13: mye sødme, krydder og og gjær i både aroma og smak. Flott skum. Litt pepper i sluttfasen. God, og vekker minner om årets sommerdager i Belgia.

Bottle from Total Wine shared at the Sybarite Pig. Small snifters. Nice hazy yellow pour with medium fluffy white head. Aroma of hay, pears, apples, bread, yeasts. The taste is pleasant with hay, grass, pears, apples. Crisp, dry finish that makes your lips smack. Good carbonation, light body. Will be getting more of this.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Georgeous nose. Pineapple, tangerines and apricot. and (surprising) heaps of mint! Golden to orange color with medium to full body. Nice tangy bitterness but somewhat short palate. Final impression: orange cremesicle. A bit to rich by the end of the glass for me but nice to enjoy, especially as it warms (initially served ice cold from draught)
