3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from Ales By Mail, served in a tulip glass. Bottled on 30-07-2013. Pours a rich golden colour (darker than all the other grisette saison I had), slightly hazy, with a small, frothy, bright white head. Strong herbal aroma upfront, almost medicinal, then freshly cut grass, bread crust, quite spicy and earthy. Immediate tingling on the lips due to a lime/lemon tartness, which works quite well with the same herbal taste. Not much coriander that I can taste, but there is a mild and pleasent bitterness with some little astringency. Light body, almost watery and soft carbonation (again quite different from the others saisons of this series). Dry and extremely drinkable, and while not my favourite from Partizan, Iím quite baffled by the extremely low rating.

Bottle at the brewery. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a round bubbly head. The aroma is clear almost alcoholic but itís not... with yeast and light citrus fruit. The flavour is light sour light bitter with a clean slightly watery nettle aromatic palate. Light bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle at home from ales by mail
Hazy blonde, offwhite head, slightly metallic herbal nose, medium body, dry, corriander dominates. Not as exciting as some but doesnít deserve the poor reviews still drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle purchased from the V&A Museum, London. Poured a light yellow colour with a slight haze and a thin white head. Aroma of sharp citrus, lemon zest and pineapple. Grassy flavours with coriander, melon and a slightly soapy hint. Palate was slightly metallic with some grain and watery orange. A rare Partizan miss, in my opinion...
