Aroma: Custard, lemon, vine tomatoes and white pepper.
Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Appearance: Hazy pale golden body with a medium white head. Light carbonation. Nice lacing.
Taste: Lemon, orange, grapefruit, white grape and yeast. Sharp and juicy with a hint of peppery spice in the finish. Lovely.
Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation fizz.
Overall: Bright, fresh and fruity - this beer is outstanding. It seems like Partizan’s speciality style is Saison. The three I’ve had from this brewery have all been fantastic, but this one tops the lot. As a side note, it reminds me of a yeasty, peppery version of Buxton’s SPA.
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Borough Wines Wilton Way. Pours mostly clear yellow, highly effervescent, with a huge, frothy white head. Delicate dry dough in the nose, plenty of lemony citrus zest, hints of hay. Light sweet flavor with light biscuity pale malts, bitter lemon rind, a bit of spicy yeast, citrus zest. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Clean, moderately dry finish, more delicate and dry doughy pale malts, some bitter citrus rind and straw, slight flinty minerals. Delicious stuff. Effortlessly drinkable. Another winning grisette from Partizan. Theydon_Bois (20621) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle at home, 03/08/13.
Lightly hazed golden yellow with a mahoosive white head which thins but retains as a soild covering - looks the bollocks !
Nose is grass, burnt lemon rind, spice, bitter orange, lemon curd, herbal qualities, juicy citrus notes.
Taste comprises bitter citric fruit, lemon rind, grass, farmy, light mineral notes, earthy tartened fruit.
Lighter end of medium bodied, soft carbonation, light tarte fruit showering at the curtain call.
Excellent saison, refreshing and crisp to the end. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Deep hazy yellow-orange body, big creamy white head. Nose is catty floral citric tones, lime zest, hints of wet grass and leaves. Very inviting. Taste is lime, cat pee, tomato plants, hay, citric peel, hints of wet grass, lemon and herbs. Not as amazing as the aroma, but still good. Medium body, high carbonation. Very tasty and fresh-feeling lightweight saison from Partizan, and my favorite of the series. Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2013
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. A massive impressive head on this. White in color and lacing on the sides. The beer itself is cloudy and yellow golden in color. What an amazing aroma. Tons of citrus and fresh hops, really fresh and grassy with zest and hay. Lovely. And yeah, this is a tasty saison. A bi untypical perhaps, but fantastic flavorful. Above average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is soft oily. Again, really grassy fresh flavors. Tons of citrus, a little bit of cat pee, fresh dessert fruits and grape zest in the finish. A really tasty wonderful saison. 25.05.2013
