14/20 Easy to drink saison with a hint of orange. But like a blue moon without the pulp. Decent
16/20 Second bottle thought was fantastic and would give 16/20 so split the difference. Full of flavour, interesting and easy to drink

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fra fat på Cirkus, Stavanger (Wild Beer krankupp) aug-16: gylden med fint skum. Behagelig men litt beskjeden duft av høy, krydder, gjær/brett og frukt. Frisk og funky sma med citrus, malt, dill og gjær. Halvtørr og samtidig ganske myk. Fin bitterhet gjorde at glasset fort ble tomt.
