3rd July 2013
Light haze on this gold beer, decent white head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Light minerally carbonation. Mildly bitter yeast. Thin airy malt. Nice citrus - a little orange and a touch of lemon. Finishes semi dry with orange peel providing bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Borough Wines Wilton Way. Pours mostly clear yellow, highly effervescent, with a huge, frothy white head. Delicate dry dough in the nose, plenty of lemony citrus zest, hints of hay. Light sweet flavor with light biscuity pale malts, bitter lemon rind, a bit of spicy yeast, citrus zest. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Clean, moderately dry finish, more delicate and dry doughy pale malts, some bitter citrus rind and straw, slight flinty minerals. Delicious stuff. Effortlessly drinkable. Another winning grisette from Partizan.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Partizan. Not to be confused with the citrus edition! It pours pale yellow with a fluffy white head. The nose is dough, orange, sweet tangerine, grapefruit, herbel and spicy notes. The taste is rather peppery, dough, pithy citrus, straw, paper, decent bitterness and faint floral notes with a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation. I really like the citra on the nose, but the tastes doesn’t quite live up to it. A rather refreshing beverage nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Deep hazy yellow-orange body, big creamy white head. Nose is catty floral citric tones, lime zest, hints of wet grass and leaves. Very inviting. Taste is lime, cat pee, tomato plants, hay, citric peel, hints of wet grass, lemon and herbs. Not as amazing as the aroma, but still good. Medium body, high carbonation. Very tasty and fresh-feeling lightweight saison from Partizan, and my favorite of the series.
