Pours a light straw gold with a small white head and some lacing. It has a nice aroma of funk, light malt, and some tropical fruit. The flavor is light funk up front with a mild fruit backbone and sour finish.

Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Pours golden with a thin white head. leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. nice funk with some oak on the nose. I get some funk on the tongue with just a hint of the barrel aging. finishes clean. It’s solid but I’ve certainly had better saisons.

Grapefruity and refreshing. I'm new to this style. Thoroughly enjoyed with chicken nuggets and my 2 yr old (just the nuggets for him) as a warm up to monday night football.

Nose of grapefruit, zest and pulp, dry. Glowing pastel golden color, cloudy, lacy. Lots of sweetness left in the flavor, more than expected. Lemon, grapefruit, yogurt, vanilla, a bit of leather. Moderately tart, woody. Mellow and silky body. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from De Hopduvel. Pours a glowing gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is really fruity and perfumy, tons of fruity bretty notes, lots of oak as well, vanilla, litchi, passion fruit, white wine undertones, light husky grain. Taste is grainy, mild bretty notes, a bit heavy fruity alcohol flavor that brings down the drinakbility, fairly complex, lots of tropical fruit, lemon zest, something is a bit harsh though, like a tough oaky tannin or husky grain flavors. Palate is a not sweet yet still a bit heavy and you can certainly feel you’re drinking 8,5% abv beer. Med carbonation, full body, semi-sweet. Pretty good drank,

Serving: Bottle. Hazy light gold pour. Plentiful white head. Brett, light oak, dusty yeast in the nose. Very light and effervescent on the tongue. Not a whole lot of flavor in this one. Lemon pith, club soda, dusty, dry brett notes. Long, bitter finish. Very surprised at the ABV. Drinks much lighter.
