2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12floz bottle @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 08-06-2014.
In short: saison?
Pours quite clear pale golden (to pour or not to pour, as some of you pointed this may be not properly expressed, but i guess everyone understands this), with little white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Citrusy, subtle tart aromas. Light to medium body, average carbonation, slightly crispy texture. Taste is some sweet, fruity, quite citrusy, subtle sour flavours. Pleasant, but lacking saisnon character.

10th September 2014
Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Mild minerals. Airy floral malts, just slight sweetness. Nice mild lemony citrus. Semi dry finish. A simple, clean and very drinkable saison. Nice job.

End of the day reward? How about after bottling beer? Belgian yeast, wheat, some grass, not quite what I expected. Sweeter and less dry for one. Taste is more my thing but I still am not impressed by the underhopped and fairly thin body. Bit of a disappointment. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
