3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours hazy yellow with a creamy, white head. Strong Belgian yeast in the nose, with touches of ripening citrus fruits and dank, damp hay. Medium sweet flavour, a little sugary, with doughy bread, yeast and honey. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Sweet on the finish with more doughy wheat bread, yeast, light candi sugar, ripe lemon. An interesting saison. Not bad overall.

Taste is a light lemon tartness with a light earthy bitterness and a dry yeasty finish. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nice brew that suits the style fairly well. Recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy golden color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Barely any lacing was there at all.
The smell started out with a light sweet to spicy blend of citrus and floral. Light sweet grassy and apple roll in underneath.
The taste copies the smell nicely and has a decent sweet grassy to apple-like aftertaste. The finish is wet and somewhat refreshing.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light with a crisp refreshing feel all around.
Overall, what a nice saison, I’d have this again.
