3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Funky floral farmhouse aroma in an amber pour. Laid back flavours of fruit and spice are both complex and subtle. A deliciously different take on the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Effervescent light brownish-amber. Aroma is heavily yeasty, and this is before pouring the sediment. On the palate it is still yeasty though less so, with some herbal hop and a touch of buggy complexity coming through.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle discounted at Tanakaya. Cherry wood brown with a finger of beige foam. Aromas of oak, light horse blanket, earth and caramel. A brown saison with brett I am assuming. Soft carbonation (probably due to being an older bottle, although the bottle says good until November 2016). As it warms more funk comes out, cobwebs and wet hay. Not bad, but more of a wild ale rather than a saison in my opinion. Not bad, but not up to par with their other releases.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hard to properly enjoy, and pour, due to over-carbonation. Prickly and overly gassy mouthfeel overpowers the the apparent ’elegant’ and ’delicate’ flavours others are talking about. Although there is a nice, citrusy, slightly funky saison lying somewhere beneath the bubbles, this is a very hard to ignore flaw. I think the marketing of La Sirene as different to typical breweries, with their backgrounds in winemaking and ’science’, and their ’classy’ bottles and labels cloud peoples judgment and leads them to be more generous in their reviews of the beers. They make reasonably good saisons but are overrated and not as accomplished as they are often presented. 10 out of 10 for marketing though.

Definitely not my favourite Saison, I would go back for a second round that's for sure. It was sour, but with a lesser sense of... Quality, I'm sure for some this is a real hit, but for me... No, sorry.
