3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright golden yellow with a big flufftastic head that was like a cloud of deliciousness.
Smelled of lemon zest, some hay and bit of earthy hops a bit subdued compared to other saisons though
Taste was mostly of Lemon, pepper, earth and hops. Fairly simple and clean and definitely delicious
The beer has a nice light feel to it but I would not call it thin. It is the kind of beer you can drink all day.
Would certainly buy more of this and a great one to introduce someone to the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Brugs Beertje. Clouded cider/ tripel colour. Reasonable head- not too well retained, but good lacing. Faint banana on nose. Earthy lemon zest, hints of alcohol seeping through. White wine/Campari tartness in finish. (although not quite as extreme). Notes of passionfruit developed with some warmth.
My first Saisonniere- so feel I’m not really qualified to give an accurate review...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden yellow, cloudy beer with big and white head. Aroma is refreshning, fruitfull, aromatic, slightly sour and yeasty, overally inspirating aroma. Flavour is also aromatic and fruitfull, not so sweet, but drying, sournes and long and lasting herbal notes in the aftertaste. Nice and fresh to drink with balanced carbonation. Pleasant and honest saison, balanced and enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with a frothy cream colored head. The aroma is dominated by yeast, but also with notes of citrus and spices. Straw and yeast in the flavor and the finish is quite dry and sharp. I found the finish on it fairly unpleasant.

Non proprio "irresistibile", diciamo onesta, forse bevuta in condizioni di freschezza migliori dà di più.
