3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy red with ano head worth mentioning. Smell is tiny sour and fruity with crackers, raspberries, lemon juice, moist hay, black pepper corns, lemon zest and hints of barnyard. Taste is sour and fruity with crackers, raspberries, lemon juice, moist hay, raspberry vinegar, dry soil, lime juice and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is flat, dry tart and light bodied. Finish is sour and fruity with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, raspberry vinegar, moist hay, apple skins and lemon zest. Completely flat which is a pity. I suspect this would have been quite enjoyable with some sparkling saison carbonation.

@ Basunen 14-08-09: trevlig doft med tydlig bärtoner. Smaken är syrlig och fin med tydlig hallon. Inte mycket saison men en trevlig fruktöl.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent dark raspberry red with thin white lacing. Smells solid; a nice balance of saison yeast and soft tartness from the raspberries. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Definitely tarter than it smells. Good beer.
