3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Refreshing citrusy aroma. The flavour is citrus, bread and a little spicy. I would have expected more rye flavour. Very balanced but maybe a little plain and boring.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of bubble gum, banana, floral and grassy hops. Hazy pale orange with a lasting bubbly, white head. Off-dry, spicy, farmy, very well balanced. Light-medium bodied, very refreshingly carbonated. With a little more malt prevalence than I’m used to in a saison, this beer has great drinkability, and an awesome balance between malt, hops, and wild yeast.
