3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A steady pour into my Teku glass produces a four finger thick, and rising, pale tan colored head that would have overflowed my glass if I didn’t choose to eat it instead. The beer is a metallic seeming gold color that shows a brilliantly clear, bright yellow gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of bright fruit and dried hay; specific notes of pear, floral apple, hibiscus, nutty pale malt, pale wheat cracker, and some melon like notes.
Effervescent, which pairs well with the light body, dry, which still can’t suppress the bright fruit notes, and quite complex, with a mélange of flavors, this beer is my idea of a Saison. The grain character has a nice, dried straw like character to it, a soft cracker like malt note, and this mixes with a light herbal character, perhaps a touch of lemon zest, or citrus character, and grassy hop notes. The yeast character contributes a soft clove character, a slight mustiness, some woody black pepper, a touch of ginger character.
This is quite nice, not the most complex Saison, but it definitely hits the spot.

A hazy dark yellow beer with a large, frothy white head. Mild nose with notes of wheat and mild spices. Dry, quite tart flavor with a lingering mild sourness. High carbonation and light on the palate. Quite nice beer but could use a lot more aroma from the yeast. This bottle was quite old and it seems that something made it turn into a sour beer.

37,5 cl bottle, shared. Bottle opens with a big bang and a serious flying cork. Suprisingly there is no gusher.
Aroma: SKunk,grains, watermelon, hint of funk.
Taste: Light sweet, light bitter, Grainy, skunk, herbal hops, yeast,,cilantro, soap,some sour funky tones.
Medium body,slick texture, slightly above average carbonation (but not annoying)
Not a perfect beer,but quite interesting even while on first sight it made seem a bit basic. Clearly a farmhouse ale feel to it. Johnstledger8 (1217) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 26, 2016

het is maar goed dat ik dit flesje binnen heb geopend, anders had hij zo de vogels uit de lucht geschoten, zo wat een knal, bijzonder daarbij is wel het feit dat er géén gusher achteraan kwam.. aroma van mout, gist, zure tonen, smaken matig/redelijk zoet, zacht/glad ,vrij veel co2, korander, gist, karton, kak, granig , vrij simpele smaken, iets zepig, medium body, zoet zacht afdronk. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours a golden orange with a small white head. Aromas of citrus/ginger. Almost took an eye out with the cork. This thing packed a lot of pressure. markoijelena (3143) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - APR 12, 2016

Clear golden with a thick bubbly white head. The nose is very strange, as if it were a mix of watermelon rind, earthy rye and rice, herbal tones and this weird pseudo-marijuana undertone. Smooth and dry, crisp flavor that starts Belgian blondeish, then turns very grainy with a pilsner-like finish. A tad grassy but very Belgian grainy, turning German grainy at the finish. drpimento (3672) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Aroma is strong skunk. Appearance is a soap sudsy head and scum. Flavor has a bit of fish at first, then is a little sweet tang and not a lot else. Bit of a let down from Stillwater. Sure don’t understand this high rating, although I acknowledge it is in green glass.
