375ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). I guess this is my 1k different brewery?! Clear dark golden color. Small size, thick white head, stays. Fizzy, sweet, peach syrup, wheaty in aroma. Sweet, malty, banana, yeasty in taste. Yeasty, messy, apples in aftertaste. Rough and full of acetone. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 5, 2016

Sweet aroma, some grungy graiiness to it. Pretty heady sweet taste, some alcohol in here too. Sticky palate, both from sweetness and I presume resiny hops, which at least provide some long-term interest. Yes, it uses belgian yeast, I can taste that, but the effect is so forced that it’s fake. Some acidity here, not so nice. Throw belgian yeast in, get high scores - narp, doesn’t work for me.
Rerate: Tap (Riga Craft Beer Festival 2016) at 6.3%, maybe bretta, maybe not - confusion here. (5:2:4:2:8=2.1)
Watery saison aroma. Fruity grungy taste, a dirty mess. Ugh, another shit modern "craft" monstrosity. So dirty and messy. Do not want.
Hazy blond colour. Aroma is fresh and tart. Thin body, a bit watery. Tart apple. A bit cideresque CraftBeerNick (2544) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2016
