4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Golden orange with a very slight haze and a small white head. Lovely aroma - sweet and fruity (apricot, yellow plum, grape), a bit spicy (most notably coriander & ginger, with a peppery background) and floral, and surprisingly fresh smelling considering that I’ve been sitting on it for a few months at least. Flavour is also very fresh and lively, with apricot and green grape sweetness, some drying ginger and pepper, a bit of yeast, and lingering chamomile and green tea in the finish. Wonderful stuff - I may have to go grab a few more bottles while it’s still around.
Golden fading into light orange, slightly hazy but still transparent. Big frothy head, ok retention and nice lacing. Soft and sweet but nicely intense aroma shows mainly floral (chamomille, wildflowers) and fruity (peach + a bit of citrus) notes, with a distinct spiciness to add some life. Taste notes follow the aroma, with a white bread/dough base and slight honey. Overall this is a very sweet beer but not cloyingly so and it still feels nicely refreshing. Light bodied with medium to high carbonation, a bit sub-par for a saison, however this is actually something between a saison and a sweet belgian ale. Still, a very easy and nicely soft mouthfeel. A very good beer. martinh1 (1) - - SEP 7, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2017 Very light, fresh citrus aroma when first poured, funky yeast only coming through after warming slightly. Crisp with just delicate sourness. Good beer colui72 (1160) - HONG KONG - JUN 30, 2017

Bel colore dorato chiaro, la schiuma bianca è pannosa e frizzante. Al naso odori decisi, con nota sentori floreali e di lievito e spezie. Al palato peccato per una carbonazione in po invadente, altrimenti è una saison ben riuscita, malto, una punta speziata. Lievito e leggermente floreale.
