3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22/06/2013 330ml bottle shared by Theydon_Bois (thanks Colin!) @ Ma che siete venuti a fà. Dorata chiara con schiuma biancastra discreta. Al naso sentori di lieviti, scorza di limone, note erbacee, zenzero, non così speziata come ci si attenderebbe dal nome. In bocca ancora scorza di limone, con finale amaro, molto secca e pulita. Corpo medio, carbonazione finissima. Tra le migliori saison assaggiate in bottiglia, forse non proprio tradizionale, ma ottima.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 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 more spicy than the regular Grisette, like ginger, pepper and soap (coriander?). Flavor is mild malt, fruity and spices like found in aroma. Medium body and nice aftertaste with same flavor as main test, but a bit more obvious pepper. Nice Sasion.
