4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Bottle with a label that made me feel underdressed, 11C. Pale amber with a large dense cream head. Vibrant aroma of apricot, peach, dough, spices, flowers, lime leaves. Bittersweet with firm bitterness kicking in straight away. Fruity, dough, slight tartness. Dryish bitter finish with lingering spices and citrus peel. More saison than IPA IMHO (certainly moreso than the Nøgne Ø / Bridge Road India Saison). Anyway, a really joyous beer. [4.0]
Growler. Oh, where’d it go? Heavier on the palate, sweetness and bitterness much more prominent. Nimbler in the bottle with spices and tartness playing a much bigger role. Much more IPA-like - and still pretty good, but more like 3.6. Leaving rating as per bottle.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle lightly hazy straw yellow with sizeable foamy cream head. Aroma of alcohol, ginger, and clove. Taste light salt and strong bitterness followed by sharp sourness. Flickering hints of sweetness but overpowered by its bitterness. Body light, thin feel, average carbonation, long astringent finish. Overall far too bitter for my style preference.

ottima saison ipa di un altrettanto ottimo birrificio..prevalenza alla componente ipa,più che saison..succede probabilmente quando le dosi di luppolo sono troppo elevate e coprono i sentori standard dello stile saison..in ogni caso birra ottima,superbeverina e fresca dal finale secco

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at MLF. Aroma is fresh, lemony hops, grainy, little bit of sweetness, light fruitiness. Taste is interesting. Has a bit of a hop burn finish. Doesn’t feel so bitter, but it lingers a bit. Sweetness is more pronounced, touch of caramel. But still grainy and quite dry and crisp. Bit of a mixed bag. Not sure what to think. Further down the bitterness fades and is becomes more like a slightly sweet saison.
