Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks again to our host for this one. Very hazy gold beer, bubbly white head. Light airy palate, semi dry. Slightly sherbet sourness. Subtle floralness. Sourness resolves in to orange - lemon. Nice mix of flavours and very approachable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared in London during the First Tasting of the Year. Many thanks to Bruce for this special one, pours cloudy, bright yellow-gold with a frothy white head. Gorgeous aroma, lots of lemon, mango, very mild funk, hints of tangy wheat. Light sweet flavor with playful lemony sourness, mild citrus rind bitterness, a bit of hay, moderate acidity. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Super clean finish, lightly drying, with more lemony tartness, sour lemon candies, lemon rind, hints of funk, delicate balancing sweetness. Superb balance. Beautiful.

Decent saison but I was expecting more from this one given the ratings, didn’t hold a great deal of depth, solid but no world beater for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, pours a clear blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings out farmhouse notes, citrus, and hay. Flavour brings out sharp citrusy notes, farmhouse notes, yeast, and very light funk. Very citric and sharp, finishing lightly tart and yeasty. Moderately drinkable, with a few rough edges. Doesn’t stand up to the hype, but it’s still solid.
