Half on keg in Craft Beer Co. Fresh on and perfect condition. Colour is deep deep, cloudy orange, bubbling off white head. Nose is amazing. Yeasty lemony citrous saison meets punchy citrus, tropical fruit, hoppy Ipa. Balance is absolutely perfect. Saison yeast and farmyard works perfectly with bold fruity citrous and mango notes.

Bottle. High creamy and long lasting white head. Hazy milky peach coloured body. Flowery fruity aroma of oranges and lemon. Spicy dry flavor of oranges and nuts. Long dry and dustry hops finish. Low carbonation. Very well balanced with an alcohol level that seems just right.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy golden with an off-white head. The aroma holds lots of passion fruit up front with undertones of mild and bright citrus, minty herbs, nettles, grass, incense, spices, flowers, tea, green apples, new backed white bread, crackers, hints of phenols and a touch of brett. Juicy and yummy nose. The flavour is light sweet to dry, light to medium bitter and light acidic with notes of tropical fruits, flowers, white bread, crackers, light phenols and brett. The mouthfeel is round and soft with a light acidic. Balanced hops, soft ripe fruits, herbs, phenols, bread and crackers. Near medium bodied.

Hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma and taste of yeast, orange, spices, brett and a light tartness. Quite interesting stuff with a bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
650 ml, bottled Feb 03, 2012. Hazy copper with a lasting head. Big nose of peppery citrus zest, resin, mango, and (serendipitously) some tangy ham. Flavor is earthy toffee, resin and citrus; but some funky dark fruit and acetic tartness shows up very quickly. Also some wheat, spicy molasses, oak and tropical melon. Medium body is smooth, balanced and an easy drinker. Bravo for a nice experiment that seems like it would be good (and different) no matter when you cracked it open.

Ganska frisk och lite torr doft. Smaken är även den helt ok. Ganska lätt frisk och trevlig.

Herber, dumpf säuerlicher Hopfenbeginn. Dies setzt sich fort, wobei einzig die dumpfen Noten weichen. Hefig, geringe Säure. Trocken hopfig-herber Abgang mit Mangonoten. 10/12/11/12/12/12

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Rated on 22.6.2012.
Pours a hazy orange colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of strong, almost stinging Galaxy hops, orange and grass. Strong flavour of Galaxy hops, grass, floral notes, orange and exotic fruits such as kiwi. Brett is there but it doesn’t dominate. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a lingering bitter, tart finish. Really nicely hopped and refreshing. Kudos for the not-so-dominating Brett.
