3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a modest white head. Gentle yet classy aroma of oranges, light puddingy dough, under-ripe nectarines. Medium bodied, carbonation on the low side for a saison. Decent balance between sweet, tart and bitter, with fruit flavours making up most of all three. Oranges, nectarines, some light dough, gentle spices. Dry and quite bitter at the end with a suggestion of funk right at the end. (Almost) justifies its alcoholic strength with depth rather than punch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from my secret santa Saeglopur, many thanks! Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Lime zest, peach, green leaves, spices, light floral and a tiny bit of funk. Great balance of sweet and bitter, lovely creamy texture, medium body and soft carbonation. Wonderful lingering fruity and spicy bitter finish, slightly tart, dry with hints of green tea. Not very bretty, but a lovely fruity saison with great texture and finish. Edit: when warming up the brett becomes more potent in the finish and it seems just right.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
épicée, agréable au palais. Pointe funky discrète mais qui soutient un côté gentiment accueillant ... Très agréable à chaque gorgée / Sans lassitude ... Pourtant, ce n’est pas d’une complexité inouïe. Une certaine justesse.
