3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Farmhouse aroma (if there is such a thing), sweat and yeasty. Tones of pine and flowers. Pours hazy golden with a fine, frothy head. Quite complex in taste, sweat then bitter. Feels quite lively, not particularly long. Good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Biervana. A saison imitating to be Belgian, as promised: Sweet, some farmhouse, crisp but fine carbonation making it not quite as heavy as it might be, a bit oily. Quite bitter. Nice, but not terribly exciting by taste.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Heavy grain and straw for the malt, moderate pine, grass and herbs for the hops, moderate barnyard and musty for the yeast, with notes of proseco, green apple and wood in the background. Head is huge, fizzy/frothy, white with a tan swirl at the end of the pour, which is crusty but doesn’t stick to the glass, and is mostly lasting. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic and faintly sweet, and finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation and finishes lightly alcoholic and dry. The hop profile and the yeast component make a great mix of flavors and aromas in this superb Saison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. It is stamped but I can’t figure out the date it was bottled. Cloudy amber-orange color with a tremendous white foamy head. The aroma has some standard Belgian toasted malt and yeasty characters. But the yeast is a wild yeasty character like one would expect from a Saison. The fruit characters are not as prominent as the tasting notes imply. The body is light to medium. The taste has a little light fruit that feels overripe. The finish is mildly bitter.

Tasty. A little tart. A little fruity. A little funky spicy on the finish. Aroma is funky yeast. Pretty entertaining saison.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle. Clear golden color with a huge, large-bubble white head. The aroma is great, quite funky with tropical aromas of mango, peach, and pineapple. The flavor is good, but there’s a slightly weird bitter note on the finish. Medium bodied and crisp with lively carbonation. Enjoyable but not a standout.
