3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Craft&Romance. Surprisingly boozy one, well the abv is not exactly saison-like, some lemon and apple notes, peppery hops which don’t really do it for me, quite a disappoinment really. Not sure if it’s import realted but just doesn’t do it for me...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at C&R. Big classic saison yeasty nose. Lemon and biscuity malts. Overly sweet on the palate. Gets kind of boozy on the palate and through the finish. Some pepper and sweetness on the finish. Classic American saison: too boozy and too sweet.

650 ml bottle courtesy of josh. Thanks. Pours a hazy yellow color with a big sudsy white head that has good retention. The aroma is big with Belgian yeasts, spices, floral and white fruits. The taste is spicy and fruity with pears, peaches, pepper, coriander and citrus. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Solid saison

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has huge over powering banana/clove with spice scents. Taste is rather fruity and spicy, rather dry finish, not a fan.
