50 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a frothing head. Lovely citrus and apple fruity aroma. The same fruityness is the flavour with a nice blend of sweetness followed by a dry bitterness into the finish. Nice.

An unclear dark orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet spicy - with coriander being most dominant. The flavor is sweet malty with a strong spicyness again especially coriander, but there also a light note of alcohol, before a dry hoppy end sets in. Quite nice for a Saison, but not my favorite style.

Cloudy yellow beer - resembles a wheat beer in appearance. Light crisp palate. Mildly bitter orange with a smooth sweet malty finish. Nice.
