look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 05/26/13.

The colour is pale gold with a tint of cool orange. The liquid is clear. The foam builds with a fizzing sound; it is white compact and two fingers high. It sinks slowly leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is hoppy and bitter. Orange peel and tart unripe berries. Soapy phenols and spicy flavours. Sticky sweet notes in the background. Cleaner and sweeter than expected.

The taste is fresh and bitter-tart with smooth fruity notes of orange peel, yeast, alcohol, orange juice and cloves. Medium body. The (less sweet) aftertaste got some alcohol, peppery spicy flavours and refreshing bitter hops. Cardamom and cooves in the finish.

The carbonation is strong, the many large bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is light.

Easy to drink with pleasant spices. I am surprised that the bitterness is so fresh after almost a year.

A: pours a dark orangish yellow, little head, cloudy
S: funk, spice, fruits tropical, love the barnhouse funk
T: light, little sweetness, spice possibly light pepper, funky, orange, flavor fades really fast
M: highly carbonated, fine bubbles
O: not bad saison, wish the flavor didn't fade off the tongue so fast, very refreshing though
