3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Haand Festival 2012. It’s an unclear, orange-golden beer topped by a finger-thick, dense white head. The aroma has some wheat and pale malt, a good dash of citrus peel and Belgian saison yeast. Faintly spiced in the far back too, guess it’s the saison yeast adding some pepper.. The flavor has a balancing bitterness, it’s quite dry and pleasantly carbonated, with citrus peel, pale malts and a little peppery twist. Lasting fruity finish. A beer I’d certainly like to see as a regular. 130525
