Pale, white head. Smells of spice, yeast esters, pepper and light malts. Moderate sweet, refreshing, quite dry, some malt and yeast influence, some fruity tones from the yeast. Moderate bitter finish. A very nice Saison

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from sourced market st pancreas. Pale translucent yellow, frothy white persistent head. Aroma is dough, orange and wit yeast esters. Flavour is doughy malt, earthy spicy hop. Very dry finish. Refreshing summer beer. Reminds me more of a wit beer than a saison. There is a chalky, dirty hop flavour in the finish that I could do without.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Haand Festival 2012. It’s an unclear, orange-golden beer topped by a dense, small, white head. The aroma has some wheat and pale malt, citrus peel and the unmistakable touch of Belgian saison yeast. Faintly spiced in the far back. The flavor has some bitterness, just enough I think, as it’s quite dry, with citrus peel, pale malts and a little peppery twist. Lasting fruity finish. A very pleasant and quenching one, and it’s at a nice ABV-level as well. 130525
