Tap. Very interesting beer, strong saison yeast flavour but hopped like an IPA. Really good balance between the two flavours. Definitely worth trying.

Aroma: yeast, pale malts, light bread, some straw, light grass. Appearance: just about clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: lively carbonation, after initial bitters, dry sweets coming up, some exotic fruits, very dry and bitter finish. Overall: fantastic Saison, well-balanced, nice complexity, very good tipple indeed. Bottle from Twenty One Wines, Brighton.

From pint bottle. Exploded out of the bottle when the cap was removed. Once settled, it pours a hazy yellow with a tight white head. Aromas of lemon, peach, white grapes and pepper with a little underlying funk. Taste starts out with white wine flavours with some kiwi fruit, lemon and lime before a pepper and lemon zest bitterness in the mid palate. Tropical fruit at the end before a lingering finish with a peppery aftertaste. Excellent stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
From Bottle Shop as part of Matt's 31st birthday haul. Hazy orange-tan pour. Big fluffy fizzy white head, streaky legs. Smells very yeasty, sour citrus (orange, lemon, lime), doughy bread, grass, barnyard, light spice. Taste is similar but fainter. Body is thin-to-medium, relatively watery but with a touch of slickness. Not bad! But hard to judge as this bottle is quite old.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap at Craft Beer Rising (London, 19 February 2015)
Clean straw yellow with sparse clean white foam.
Extremely strong aromas of pineapple and mango. The most tropical nose Iíve ever smelled.
The palate is completely dry but shows extremely juicy & refreshing guava, mango and passion fruit (I feel as if Iím practically on the beach as I drink this). Medium bodied and lightly carbonated with a light tartness. Extremely fruit forward and a perfect dry beach beer. I could drink this by the gallon.
