Smooth, juicy and complex. The fresh lemon peel and Wai-iti hops from New Zealand give this beer a long lemon-flavoured finish.

kaserov (738) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 21, 2017
De color amarillo, opaco, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Pide algo más de carbonatación. Textura acuosa. Aroma a lima, limón, herbal (muy fresco y apetecible, recuerda a una infusión con fruta). Sabor que sigue al aroma, con buena balance entre acidez, amargor y dulzor. No es especialmente seca. Quizá flojea un poco como Saison, no lo sé. Pero está muy rica.

Rask0lnikov (1292) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 15, 2017
On tap at TCBW 2017. Pale yellow colour. Medium white head. Citrusses, barnyard, notes if juniper berries in the aroma. Citrusses and notes of juniper berries in the taste. Juniper berries in the aftertaste as well. Well balanced, well drinkable saison.

Tap, TCBW 2017 day one. No notes taken, only the score recorded. Will try to re-rate with tasting notes if possible.

KeyKeg (TCBW2017)
Lovely fruity saisony aroma, fresh and light. Cloudy pale yellow, small tight head, fairly persistent. Wheaty grains in the taste. Crisp carbonation. Fruity finish, citrussy. Decent drinkability. Alcohol not detectable at all. Nicely refreshing clean saison.

suurjuust (3530) - ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2017
Tap at TCBW. Hazy, white head. Sweet fruity nose, kinda generic and fruity saisony flavor. Aftertaste not great.

Tinaccio (382) - Milano, ITALY - APR 25, 2017
Keg at brewery tap room, Bermonsdey, London, UK. Colour is hazy, pale, light yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is citric, lemon, orange, grapefruit, spices, grain, light malts. Taste is lemon, yeasts, citrus hops, light sweet and light bitter. Light bodied with average carbonation.

wheresthepath (2332) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle from London Beer Lab. Hazy straw colour with a large white head. Smell is all Belgian yeast- that Leffe honey roast ham thing. This is less apparent in the flavour- it’s replaced with a light sweetness, some white pepper, a hint of lemon peel and a moderately dry finish. It’s quite refreshing but somewhat on the light side flavourwise. Overall just ok- expected better from this brewery.

bastarda (502) - Freiburg, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2016
kindly shared by [email protected], thanks a lot! this is a nice, refreshing, quite simple Saison, with its lightly sour nose and some hints of lemons, grass and almonds and its almond, marzipan, pepper dry taste. Only I’m not so sure of its extra ingredients as for me it’s well imaginable that without them this Saison would taste exactly the same.
