2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught (shared with Lövis, thanks). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, citrus, wood, earth and some mild fruity notes. Flavour is quite dusty and similar with the elements from the aroma, but also has some strong hoppy notes. A bit out of balance and a quite strange interpretation of a saison.

Draught at bar. Amber color, white head. Bitter sweet taste with cranberries, sahti-aromas, floral hops and citrus. Not really a saison, more like sahti.

Perfume is the only thing that comes to mind. I just don’t like this a bit. Maybe needs aging.

Fruity, raisin, a bit smoky aroma. Appearance red, foggy. Taste divines people: unique. Palate a bit iron.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 Tap @ Kaisla, Helsinki 13/10/12. Pours a hale orange-amber with a small, white head. Aroma is very fruity: apple, lemon, pear. Taste begins very fruity as well, lots of pear, light yeast, loads of lemon in the middle and finish. Aftertaste is very lemony and very dry. Palate is a bit light with loads of carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught@Angleterre. Yelloworange, some haze. Nose has a lot of gluey ’infected beer’ qualities, but also hay, pale malts and a lemon zest. Body is medium/light, dry. Citrus, hay, cereal. It’s definitely a saison, but a bit too much bacterial residue. Even though a sour beer, it hinges on the border of a spoiled batch. So much of the gluey stuff especially on the nose, although it seems to settle after a while. Otherwise a fine saison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Rotterdam, Helsinki
Pours dark orange with a large foamy head. Aroma of spices, fruits, farmhouse yeast and grassy hops. Taste is sweetish and malty with spicy and fruity notes, hints of farmhouse elements and yeast. Finish is malty and sweetish with mild unpleasant buttery notes, hints of spices and honey. Okay, a bit unbalanced easy-going saison that could’ve used some more edge.
