3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large frothy fizzy white head. Excellent lacing. Fully diminishing. Sparkling hazy average-density golden body. Aroma: light malty, caramel, light hoppy, citrus lemon, moderate spicy/peppery notes, moderate yeasty, dough, grape, apple, alcohol. Initial flavor: light sweet moderate acidic. Final flavor: light sweet moderate acidic light bitter; average duration. Palate: light medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation, light astringent and spicy finish. caráter lupulado frutado (pome fruit); acidez lembra uva verde. Leve picancia condimentada no final. Agradável e refrescante. Mais ácida que a média do estilo. Bem atenuada, com textura seca no final e o dulçor sendo sobrepujado pelo azedume e acidez. O caráter frutado puxa mais para o lado do limão, dado o nível de azedume acima da média encontrado nesta Saison. O amargor residual lembra casca de frutas (earthy). Na ultima taça o liquido se torna mais escuro devido ao grande numero de sedimentos encontrado no fundo da garrafa. A acidez/azedume aumenta ainda mais nesta etapa também. Interessante nota de cravo (suave) no paladar. O dulçor traz leves notas maltadas. There is enough prickly acidity on the tongue to balance the very dry finish. In versions with sourness, like this one, a moderate tart character adds a refreshing bite, 90 s

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75 l bottle from ’REWE Budnik & Homberg’, best before end 2018, probably two years old. Clear, golden yellow with a large, a bit fluffy, slowly diminishing, white head. Faint, yeasty-spicy, grassy, slightly fruity-floral and a bit musty aroma of lemon peel, white grapes, clove, straw and vegetables. Slightly sourish, fruity-grassy, floral and a bit yeasty-spicy taste of lemon peel, white grapes, gooseberry, straw and hints of clove, followed by a medium long, slightly tart, dry grassy and a bit yeasty-spicy finish. Thin to medium body, a bit astringent and rather effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Quite refreshing, just a bit unpleasant in the aroma but that becomes less after a while.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft. There’s so much fruit flavor in this I had to do a double take when I took my first sip, because I thought I was drinking the wrong beer. There’s a strong pear aroma/flavor that makes it drink almost like a saison that had aged on fruits. Clean, straightforward, refreshing -- I’d drink a lot of this, given the chance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium aroma of malts, wheat, fruit, Saison yeast and citrus.
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with medium yeast and with a medium white/off-white head.
Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts, wheat and fruit; ends slightly dry with Saison yeast and citrus.
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Way too balanced and thus safe for a Saison, being not intense enough and having no complexity whatsoever. Funny to see that the last sip you take has none of these problems, so... It could have been what it should have been.
