4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 release 12oz bottle sitting pretty in a wine glass. Golden yellow tone with a dense white head and aromatics jumping out the glass. Upon the first smell I get flash backs to Saison Du Buff which is probably the thyme and peppery yeast in play. Floral lavender, a touch of eggy sulfur and bright citrus are also present. The flavors are nice and balanced with a spicy dry finish, I really enjoyed it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty good saison. Aroma has some citrus, yeast, a little bit of funk. Pours a lighter yellow with lots of carbonation. A finger of head throughout the beer. Taste is citrus-forward, with yeast, a little of that farmhouse wildness, and some floral notes on the end. Slightly sweet, an almost creamy effervescence on the tongue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från SBs beställningssortiment. En kryddig, örtig och blommig saison. Inte jättemycket saisonkaraktär, men lätt, friskt och ganska torr och med mycket karaktär från kryddorna. Timjan, lavendel, citrus, hö, gräs, lite parfymig, relativt stor beska för stilen. Annorlunda och trevlig.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Total Wine.
Deep muddy gold pour with a nearly white head. The aroma is a blend of lemon peel, esters, and lavender. The flavor is peppery foremost, mild cracker sweetness behind a blast of spices with hints of hay and dust if one imagines hard enough. But the spices absolutely wreck the beer. At first sip it’s tolerable, but as the beer warms in the glass....yuck.
tl;dr summary: Fuck this beer. Next time I’ll just suck on a Ricola.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright golden color with a large foamy yellow-white head that lingered but left minimal lacing. The aroma was lemon, lemon zest and a bit of yeast. The flavor was tart lemon, yeast, lime, pepper and a strong bubblegum presence. Medium length finish. Medium body. Pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden color. Small head. Smells spices, honey, wheat. Tastes candy. More spices in the aftertaste (pepper). A little bit heavy for saison.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour hazy golden with a lot of white head. The phenolic charcter is in the aroma, but it’s not too strong. Full-bodied and fun.
