3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is dominated by flowers with a phenolic note to help balance the floral note. Lots of calendula with a spicy yarrow note. The phenolics have a light pepper and coriander note. There is also a bit of citrus and a light fruitiness.
Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a big pillowy white head that slowly but steadily recedes. Huge lacing.
Flavor starts with quite a nice floral character along with some citrus that creates a bit of a citrus blossom note. A bit of a sweet honey note. The citrus has a nice lime characteristic to it. There is a bit of a grainy astringency mid palate that lingers a little in the finish. There is a bit of a pepper and coriander note mid palate but this finish is lime and flowers. Medium low bitterness that finishes fairly dry.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Medium low alcohol warmth and medium to medium astringency.
Overall an interesting saison with tons of floral aroma and flavor. That being said, the floral character is a bit overpowering and the astringency is about high.
