Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle bottled on 16th December 2015 and poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.

Aroma: Strong orange peel, juicy orange, lemon and white grape. Light funkiness with a hint of mango.
Taste: Juicy mix of orange and lemon with a hint of mango. Light tartness, some peppery spice notes and a hint of bread on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to high spritzy carbonation.
Overall: A great solid saison with nice juicy citrus notes. Very refreshing on a hot day.
