3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, grapefruit and white grapes. Flavour of wheat, caramel, white grapes, Belgian hops, floral notes and grains. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a citrusy bitter finish with dry white grapes. Really well balanced and reminds me of Avec Les Bons Voeux.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy murky glowing orange, a bit darker, some tannish elements with a good offwhite head that stays decent sized, laces well. Aromas are a subtle fruity yeasty blend, a touch of spice mixed with apple, pear, and mellow banana. Grainy malts, a touch of wheat, and vanilla come in with dry and decent bittering hops, floral and earthy. Initial is nice, flavorful malts and fruity esters attack the palate, banana, apple, pear mix with a touch of bubblegum, citrus, vanilla, faint honey, good bitterness that let’s the dominant yeasty spice and fruit stay master, but balances well, drys out to a near champagne quality. A touch of orange, floral and earthy hops, and lingering spice stick to the palate. One of the better Saisons I’ve had from Chicagoland. Tasty, inoffensive, balanced well. Pulls several elements and flavors together well.
