3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. From bierkompass.de.
Hazy golden colour with an average sized foamy white head.
Fruity and yeasty aroma with mild maltiness. Good. The flavour is herbal hops, spices, bitterness and malt. The hoppiness is quite strong for a traditional Saison. Tasty this is but I’m missing the delicacy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky burnt orange with a big off white head. Very lemony nose, strawberries and peaches, citrusy hops, earthy funkiness, some spice, and a nice grainy smell. Really fruity and hoppy, mostly floral, there’s some strong peppery notes, a great saison funk, and wet grass. Delicious and refreshing.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a hazy orange with ample off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells yeasty, spicy, hoppy, and earthy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
