3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is cereal grain, grass, fruity and spicy esters, stone fruit, citrus and light floral and pine notes. Flavor is fruity and spicy up front, tree and stone fruit, peppery, clove and ginger spice, nice orange marmalade and grassy finish. Medium body, oily, chalky entry leading to a moderate strength, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation and chalky somewhat slick and dry finish. Good stuff, it hides it’s booze decently, but like many other Saisons it would probably be better at around 75% of its strength. I really like the hop profile though.

Spina @ beerattraction.
Chiara con bella schiuma.
Abbastanza secca anche se un po' pastosa è parecchio luppolata.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden color with little foam head. The smell is yeasty and a tiny bit sour. The taste is calm as is the carbonation. The taste is almost milky, but not that special. Quite nice beer, but not especially sensational.
