Blonde, with a white head. Aroma has citrus, like cascade or amarillo hops. Also citrus in the taste, nice addition but I prefer a normal saison Dupont!

Draft. Almost clear golden hue with a frothy, sticky white head. Sweet aroma: reduced pear syrup, some alcohol, a little lemon peel and orange juice. More spicy and peppery flavor, but it still has the pear and the hops. Dry wheat, peppercorns, bitter finish. Slight tanginess. Very solid, interesting, tasty saison.

Senap (537) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2015
En saison med något mer bett och lite mindre syra. På det hela taget en trevlig bekantskap.

375ml Bottle - Hazy golden with a foamy head. Perfumed and floral aroma with lemon, orange peel, hay and spice in the aroma. Nicely balanced taste with notes of lemon zest, coriander, pepper and a hint of peach all combining nicely. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

axl (311) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
375ml bottle. Hazy golden with tall white head leaving moderate lacing and lasting rather well. Aroma is typical saison yeast and spices with a generous hop profile going towards warmer, sweeter fruits like oranges. Taste is dry and peppery with some grapefruit, citrus, orange, maybe a hint of melon and just a touch of yeast. The carbonation is medium and so is the mouthfeel which presents a very nice and refreshing dryness.
