3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled @ Haand 2013. Hazy pale orange body with a white head. Mild, but pleasant aroma of citric fruit and spicy yeast. Flavor is refreshing fruity, a tad bit more citric in flavor. Not to different from the regular Grisette, but I thing I found this one just a bit more pleasant in flavor. Medium body and a light, pleasant aftertaste. Nice Saison all the way.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Bottle from Borough Wines [Wilton Way]. Pours hazy yellow with a big, fluffy white head which sits around for the length of the beer. Damn fine looking stuff. Nose is subtle spice, lemon rind, dough, coriander, touch of pepper and orange. Complex and refreshing in both smell and taste. Taste is heavy lemon and zest with subtle spices up front. Lemon cake in there on the finish. Quite peppery and zesty. Damn easy drinking. On the carbonated side of things but works for the drinkability of the beer. Bitterness right on the finish and quite lengthy. Holy crap this is good shit! My rating is probably a little higher than normal considering it’s about 30 degrees today and this is a perfect hot weather beer
