Bottle, shared at Ale House by Clayton.
Nice farrmhouse yeast strain aroma. Huge Nelson hops. Nice clean malt. Great crisp malt backbone. Some licorice and funky elements. Would be interesting to see this aged. Also would be interesting to see them use Dupont yeast as well.

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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
