4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. Clear yellow with a big white head. Nose : bread malts with a bit caramel background. Some bubblegum fruits like banana, pear and peach. Sip : oily with small carbonation. Sweet pear fruit start with some floral and honey notes followed by medium bitter hops on the end. The aftertaste is still bitter but still very floral with little hint of raisin. Nice beer. Something I will not hesitate to buy again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a rather cloudy, light yellow body with a finger or so worth of soft-looking, white foam.
Smell: Soft scented barley, delicate wheat with a thin slice of lemon, a small dash of ground spice, and a teensy hint of perceived sweetness.
Taste: Crumpled rock candy atop faintly bready, lightly malted barley and wheat, remaining a bit sweet as the citrus and spice come in. Faintly soiled yeastiness. Lightly grassy hops, lightly bitter, though it is fanned a bit by the crackling carbonation. As it warms and as your acquaint yourself with the beer, the initial sweetness dies out and the lemon turns a bit citric. Closes out nicely dry, quite crisp, and with a subtle, rural spiciness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation.
Overall: I’m a fan of the subtle yet satisfying tastes present, but would prefer a fraction of the upfront sweetness we have here. Actually, scratch that last part, as the beer grew drier as it went along, hitting a nice level of refreshment.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Is a saisonniere not a saison? Whatever. This is good! Pours a pale, slightly cloudy golden with a medium-sized white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is light banana and fruit, hoppy, lemon, some light earthy funk. Flavor is complex but surprisingly light: coriander and lemon, candy sugar sweet (but not overly so), some light Belgian elements, some caramel malt. Palate is light, carbonation is sparkling. Delicious and refreshing.

Fresh and citrus smelling beer, with a light yellow clear color, with a mild sweet and bitter taste. Bitter taste goes up a little in the after-taste. Good drinkable.

Bouteille de 33cl. Merci Patrick. Bière dorée comme du blé avec une mousse blanche composée de grosses bulles. Le nez est de blé, de levure belge et une belle dose de houblon. La bouche est agréable avec des notes de blé. La finale a un bel arrière-goût amère provenant de beaux houblons. Facile à boire.
