Solid golden colour propelled with CO2 showing a medium large frothy pillowy white head. On the nose aromas of medium warm wet vegetables, herbs, grass, biscuits, light floral notes and barnyard develop. Light slick and light fizzy. Medium sweet with some bitter notes to it. Well balanced with a slick light dry finish, lasting pleasantly for a while.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ bere buona birra. Profumo luppolato agrumato, ricorda l’aroma di una saison. Colore giallo oro, con riflessi rame piuttosto opalescente. Schiuma bianca fine, compatta. Gusto intenso e sorprendente. ingresso acidulo sembra voler diventare amara come una pale ale, ma in realtà non succede. L’amaro è solo una punta che svanisce e lascia spazio ad un gusto vegetale, in un certo senso mi ricorda le birre di frumento. veramente sorprendente.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours maize with a fluffy white head. Lovely musty saison aroma, damp cellar and barnyard with the faintest hint of spice across the top. Slightly aggressive flavor profile, full-bodied, notable sourness. Orange peel. I don’t pick up the peppercorns particularly. Enough hops in the close, fullness and a slight warmth to the mouthfeel. A very good saison; after finishing this one I’m very hungry (thirsty?) for more.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a hazy golden orange with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; yeasty with notes of citrus, spices, and light pepper. Tastes like it smells with a nice, lively mouthfeel. Good beer.
