3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, big thanks to Bruce! It pours hazy pale golden with a small fluffy white head. The nose is fresh, piney, orange squash, musty, herbal, brett, earthy, varnish, hay and light herbal notes. The taste is crisp, piney, grapefruit, orange, lime peel, hay, musty, earth, brett, mild astringency, spice and a touch of alcohol. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Big flavour, but a bit musty. Not sure if the balance is quite there, but decent nonetheless.

Bottle cheers to Bruce. Hazy golden pour with a tiny white rim for a head on top leaving soapy lacing all over the glass. Nose is exquisite. So juicy and tangy with heavy lemon rind, loads of lime zest, huge citric hop and pepper. Damn it smells good! Taste is quite close but itís just a touch more muddled and has a slight heat to it which I donít mind. A load of lemon zest, heavy rind, sorbet, sweetness with bitterness on the finish. Just huge citrus with a very miniscule hint of sourness. Probably not quite as sophisticated as the Tired Hands HandFarm but very well done. Nice stuff

Cloudy straw yellow with a big head. Nose is mostly tropical hops, some lime leaf, and other citrus, plus a bit of farmhouse funk. Taste is lemon zest, funk, bit of spiciness. Havenít been a big fan of nelson saison beers I have had but really enjoy this.

Bouteille 1 pint 9 fl oz. Jaune pâle trouble. Nez désagréable d'urine de chat. Beaucoup mieux en bouche: tartre, grain blond, citron. Belle longueur mais finale encore sur l'urine de chat. Je blâme la variété de houblon...

Bottle shared at Bruceís Iím London - big thanks to Bruce for this beer. Pours unclear yellow with a fine, frothy white head. Nose has lots of juicy citrus fruits, grapefruit, melon, peach, orange. Light sweet flavor with decent funk, a bit of melon, slight bitter citrus rind. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Clean and funky to finish, some armpit, basement, more citrus, rindy bitterness. Tasty and pretty dynamic.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy golden with a foaming sticky head. The aroma is pleasantly hopped, citrus, mildly malted, and a light yeast scent. I tasted grains, mild bitterness, yeast, and a weak citrus fruit funk. Overall a very good beverage.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Amazingly cloudy orange. Light yeasty hay scents. Smooth wet start, then the flavor hits like a firework, a blast of sour funk that changes in to a hop finish.

Extremely murky straw colored pour with a fluffy ivory crown that left spots of lacing inside the glass. Assertive, both in aroma and flavor with lemon zest, grapefruit pith, tart unripened fruit, funk, and a buttermilk biscuit note. A bit of pepper and spice. Nicely executed beer!
