3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Haand Festival. It’s an unclear, orange colored beer topped by a dense, white head of two-finger size. Nice lacings. The aroma has a nice impact from the saison yeast, it’l lighlty peppery and fruity, with peach hints, some canned tropical fruits and a generic fruityness. Mostly fruity that is. There’s probably a tad too much sweetness in the flavor, but it suits the beer very well, it’s semi-dry and with a pleasant level of carbonation, finishing mostly fruity. Except for the sweetness level, it’s a really pleasant one, wouldn’t shy away from drinking more of this, that’s for sure. 130525

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[330ml bottle from Utobeer, London] Hazy orange with a large cream head and rather too much fizz. A little banana at first, then dry, with sour lemon, pepper, bubble gun, bread, cardboard, sage and cloves. [That would be bubble gum I meant there. It definitely doesn’t taste of bubble gun!]. Undoubtedly complex, but overall I didn’t like this as much as I hoped.

Bottle at home from ales by mail.
dry spicy nose, full bodied with creamy wheat spicy character plus some bready malt reminding me of the best German beers but with the dry ester finish of a saison. Really easy drinking for its strength and another winner from partizan

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle from the brewery. It pours a slightly hazy deep copper colour with 1 finger of soapy white head. Aroma is quite complex, quite zesty with notes of agrumes and peppercorns. Taste is well balanced between the light bitter notes with some floral hops and grass, and the more sweet-ish side with dried fruits, some yeast and bread. Just a tad of funk. Overall, good saison.
