3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy orange with small bubbles fighting with the yeast sediments that dive here and there. Reminds me of a lightened and bit hoppied Tripel Karmeliet, with its citrus aroma and it cereal wheaty refreshing yet powerfull taste. Some hops in the aftertaste, but not as much as I would expect - probably in a fresher sample would be different. Still a great saison with a nice price.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Maybe it was too cold from the tap, maybe Saisons just aren’t my thing. Poured a pale, golden colour with a thick white head. Didn’t get much in the aroma, slight earthy smell. Taste was lightly hopped, again, slight earthiness, quite lightly bodied. Again, maybe I had it too cold, but not something I’d rush to try again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dimmig, bärnstensfärgad öl med ett vitt, livligt skum. Doft av gräs, lätt kryddiget och jäst. Smaken är välbalanserad en gräsig beska och en lätt kryddighet. Välbalanserad men borde hafte "lite mer av allt" för att bli en riktigt bra saison.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy vivid orange copper with a big ole frothy head that floats nicely throughout the beers life when it does slide it laces very nicely down the glass. Aromas are very tempting with hints of herbal spice, orange rind and fresh cut grass. On the palate it pops with tangy grapefruit, funky grass, lime flavors balanced on the back end by some earthy wood to round out the finish.
