3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Haandfest 2014. This is a pale kinda yellow looking one. Only a small white sidesticking head. Nice nose with a fair amount of citrus and hay. Some sort of fruit sweetness also detected here. Grass and mild yeast. Lots of nice fresh aromas here. A bit grainy at first In the taste. Slightly soapy bitter at times. Light oily and soft to average prickling. Grassy bitter, some citrus sharpness and it’s a tad mouthdrying. All in all quite nice. 24.05.2014

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tropical fruit, orange, lemon leading scents. Citrusy delight. Some belgian influence in the undergrowth; bread, yeast. One quick sniff and this could easily be a hoppy pale ale. Impressive frothy head lasted until last mouthful. Lovely sweet mango and tangerine invite in the taste. Some cushioning yeast to balance hoppy flavors. Grass. A little funk in the aftertaste and a spicy bitterness. Really good stuff.

Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is fresh fruity, dried fruits, fresh hops, apricot, passion fruit, leafs, lawn, citrus. Taste is slightly dry and harsh, leafs, soap, hay, lawn, sap, bark, hops, cardboard. Medium to longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, but not really my cup of tea.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very hazy, cloudy pale orange, with thick white foam. The head suffocates the Saison yeast aroma, but the beer gives a really clean, citrus flavour.
