3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma has massive barnyard, hay, funk, yeast, bread. Flavor is mildy tart, yeasty, light sweet with some fruity and peppery notes. Nice, strong carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel and a well balanced flavor. Aftertaste is a bit weird, bittersour and very strange, but that just suits the brewer perfectly. Decent stuff.

When I read about the pepper in this beer I was a bit sceptical. Pleasant surprise to enjoy this a lot. It is a good saison. Fresh, bitter and spicy. The pepper is there but subtly. Flavor is malts, yeast, some sour element, citrussy floral hops and, yes, peppery spices. I like it.
