3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Cloudy, yellow colour with a dense and huge foamy white head. Yeasty, moderately sweet pale malty and slightly sour-wheaty aroma with citric and slightly herbal hops. Quite bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with a spritzy carbonation. Yeasty and soft pale malty and wheaty base with subtle fruity notes and a present herbal hops character; dry and bitter-sweet rounded malty and hoppy finish. Nice and almost easy-going one. 25.IX.10

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear light bronze golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with a touch of light fruity esters and some grassy notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and a lightly sweet pale maltiness with a drier earthy biscuity flavor and a touch of clove spice before a slightly drier finish. A fairly true to style and drinkable saison.
