3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks. Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma was musty with belgian yeasts, melons and soap. The flavor, like the aroma, features musty melons saison yeast, soap and bread. The palate is light and the carbonation is lively. The finish is long and dry. Overall: Decent saison, very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass, very hazy yellow with small head, vanishes quickly, mild lacing. At first the aroma is overpowering yeast / skunk but the objectionable character of it subsides quickly. After that, it is a lighter refreshing experience with lemony grassy yeasty notes. Mixed semi dry finish. Mild peppery. Subtle but noticeable hops. Don’t expect a standard beer experience here.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small sample from 355 ml bottle, at a 4th of July tasting. Promising and nice farmhouse kitchen / brett aroma, but the flavour was too thin, bland and not very interesting. The Motueka hops did not come through as much as I’d like. Might sample again, but not if I have to pay for the bottle myself.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow, with a big creamy head receding to a small cap. Aroma is quite spicy hops, with sweet citrusy and grassy notes, and nice woody yeast with fruity farmhouse notes, as well as some roasted malts. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is dry wooden yeast, with fruity notes of plums and a nice hoppy touch of lime, nectarines and and peppery grass. Lingering tart yeasty finish. Very refreshing and easy drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gulbrun klar med høyt hvitt skum som legger seg som et fingerhøyt dekke ettervert. Lukter hvete, krydder og noe sitron. Forventet en syrlig saison, men det ble litt flat, lett noe søtlig, svært lett bitter avsluttning. Kort.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Green’s Discount. Hazy, pale yellow color, with a medium, foamy, gray head. The nose is musty and earthy, with some lemon zest, honeysuckle, and a touch of grass. Lightly bitter flavor, and surprisingly dry. Light body, grainy, and lightly effervescent. This is a lovely saison, with perfect hopping and a great, dry, and balanced flavor. It was difficult to drink this slowly to do the rating, because it goes down so easily and pleasantly.
