Fragrant and classic of the style. Perhaps a bit forgettable but it's balanced and pleasant.

Odd beer with a plastic taste plus citrus and berries. Good head and medium body. Good spice flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold. Surprising bit of hop aroma. Definite bit of funk from the yeast. Fairly dry in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of spice, wheat, and a slight funk. Taste follows, slight bitter finish, clean and slightly tart. Good saison, but nothing that exciting

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a Victory Pint glass a light lemon yellow with a thick white head.
Aroma is saison spice some light citrus.
Flavor is upfront coriander/clove spice thinking orange as well. Also some bready funk. Fairly average by a stretch for a session. Bought a single bottle on whim and would have rather now not...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a golden color with a covering of white head that hung on well. Aroma has grains, spices, and herbs. Mouth feel is medium and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor leads in with spice and herbs while there is a grainy Saison underneath. I thought from the fruit looking thing on the label there would be some citrus or peach or something in the beer.

Pleasant saison. Mild aroma with some citrus and sweet bubble gum. Taste well balanced mild Belgian ale with hints of bubble gum and a very mild funk.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, pours hazy golden brown with a bubbly head. Carbonation is lively. At first the nose came across as vegatal with even a bit of washing up liquid but once in the mouth the more nuanced fruity aromas come out, lemon, lychee and fizzy orangeade, with coriander and spice, quite complex and a bit unusual saison,finish is crisp and dry bitter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aren’t all Saisons sessionable? Well, to me at least. This one’s got a somewhat hazed straw body with a skinny little fizzy head. Interesting aroma. I don’t know what’s in it, but I pick up some coriander, ginger, and maybe some chamomile, all over a soft grainy sweetness. The flavor’s a bit spice forward, much like the nose, and has some citrus sweetness. The finish is dry and all spiced up, a bit too much for me, coating the mouth and staying there. Over all, not too shabby.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Hazy, yellow colour. Thin, bubbly, white head. Smells like the lemon infused aftershave you’d get in a Turkish barbers shop. Lemongrass. Sorbet. Taste is dry, and a little pithy bitter. Fresh palate. A little creaminess. Finish is spicy dry, with bitterness at the end.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is very interesting, orange, citrus, peppery. The flavor is husky, peppery, spicy. This is thin and astringent, lacks complexity.
