3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from local alco store in Reykjavik. Pours hazy amber with thick beige head, doesn’t last very long, but leaves nice lacing. Very aromatic, weird tartness, witbeer-ish, yeasty aroma. Taste is malty and dry. Very dry finish. Some grassy and floural notes. Medium bodied, extremly dry, average carbo. I like dry beers, but this one is surprising even for me. Almost nothing to do with saison here.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Orangey, large tight head. Simple belgian ale aroma, a bit like a leffe, something on the grungy side of the genre, but without the quite as much sweetness as leffe. Taste similar, quite grungy, a bit of iron and liver, a little sweet. Full palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish a bit metallic and dirty. Not a saison by any stretch of the imagination. Belgian yeast definititey dominating, but this is just a dirty leffe, which is different from a saison. Does vaguely covery the alcohol.
