HopRedHead (293) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2013
4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden clear, golden orange with a nice light white head. Immediate aroma of fruity hops (amarillo?), apricots, honey with plenty of zesty sherbet. Hoppier than expected on the nose. Taste is lemongrass, cola bottles, sugar, plenty of zest and a nice saison dryness. Plenty of warmth down the back of the palate, tastes boozier than it is but that contributes a lot to the flavour in my opinion. Cool take on a saison.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours vibrant orange with a small white head. Nose shows heavy lemon sorbet with light hay and grassy hops. Hoppier than expected. Taste shows quite a buit of lemon hoppage. A little b it of booze and heat but works ok. Very easy going and goes down easy. Not completely true to the style but the hops help it flow. I like it

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,75l bottle from Csakajósör, Budapest. Hazy, light amber colored beer with little white head. Fruity sour odor. Balanced bitterness and kind sour flavour. Fruits, yeast, some malt. The fruit flavours play the main role. The aroma has every good properties of Saison beers. Medium bitter taste with some fruity sweetness. Very creamy texture and light body, soft carbonation. It slips down easily but it has a huge aroma. Fruity, bitter finish. It’s a very delicious beer with many flavours and very delicious mouthfeel. Very-very good one.

Saison di tutto rispetto, anche se non pienamente in stile, sia per il grado che per la poca presenza in gusto del frumento. La luppolatura tuttavia copre qualsiasi difetto, facendo dimenticare quasi di essere una saison e lasciando un aroma molto piacevole in bocca.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh, sparkling, smooth, with beautiful fruity aroma and amber color. What is really great about this beer is hops aroma which in my opinion is mostly built by Amarillo and Simcoe. Nice creamy head which lasts for quite long. The alcohol is well masked with the residual sugars. Drink it carefully - can work as silent killer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Slightly hazy amber with a frothy, off-white head. Hoppy, fruity and yeasty aroma with notes of brett, some caramel and a hint of spices. Moderate sweet with a dry and bitter finish. Quite dominated by the hops with yeasty flavours second. Not the typical saison, but quite refreshing and easy drinkable.

Light haze on this amber beer, huge pale cream coloured head. Light palate, a little crisp. Cream soda! Sweetish vanilla. Delightful light citrus - lemon and orange, superbly well integrated with the cream. Finishes semi crisp. Very mild bitterness. Drinks well below 8.0% and it does remind me of a snowball (drink) a bit.

Tap @ fairbar, 19 / 7 2013. Dark cloudy orange, nice white head, good lacing that last for a long time. Aroma, quite hoppy, malty, fruity. Taste, again very hoppy, a little sourness in the background, fruity, . Bitter aftertaste. Not at all what i expected from a saison, but it is a very nice beer.
