2.73/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A: Hazy straw-colored with a white tall, but very airy and light head. Only poor lacings.

S: Stable, leather, hay and some herbs. Malty, citric and sour, but kind of light for Saison. Honey.

T: Spices, hay, stable and yeast. Malty and sour, but as in the smell, way too mild.

M: LIght body, short aftertaste and rich carbonation.

O: This is a light-Saison - everything is there, but way too mild. The only thing that stands out is the spices but they are not challanged by anything else.

Brewed in collaboration with Kissmayer Beer. Spiced with Swedish honey, sea buckthorn, rose hips and yarrow.

The beer fizzes while I pour it. The clear liquid is cool yellow (5 EBC), the finger thick airy head quickly sinks leaving no lacing.

The smell is spicy and very phelolic with distinct notes of old-fashioned soap. Sharp sweet flavours with some honey. Some unclean bitterness in the background. Cedar and juniper tree, rosehips, cloves and a touch of ginger. It is, in fact, a bit Christmas-y.

The taste is a bit tart and spicy. Cloves, bitter oranges, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, gale and lemon peels. Passing bitter notes. Medium body. The aftertaste got some growing alcohol notes, dense spices, some spicy bitterness and candy-like sweetness. The finish is spicy, reminding of Christmas-flavoured toffee.

The carbonation is strong, the bubbles mid-sized. The liquid is a bit dry.

To much spices. Otherwise, not a bad brew.
