3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@Home. Malty, citrus, nelson sauvin aroma but not in a bad way at all. Hazy, yellow, small off-white head, good lace. Sweet, bitter, fruity, hints of diesel and garlic. Balanced, falvourful. Normally this is not my kind of hops but I like them in this beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold, with a big fluffy white head. Nose is saison yeasty, spicy. The Sauvin hops donít really come through on the nose. Taste is fruity and yeasty, with a little spice in the finish. I think the fruitiness is more hop than yeast derived. Palate is light bodied despite the 7% ABV, with gentle carbonation, and an odd finish: nearly everything goes away quickly, except the yeastiness. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as itís that lovely saison yeast. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours a slightly hazy straw colour with a big frothy white head. Aroma of hay, citrus and yeast. The taste has plenty of slightly peppery spice over earthy yeast flavours with hay and a little tropical fruit. Light and refreshing. Nice.

Lovely looking, great aroma and a lovely set of tastes that wash over, from that earthy note, the the under bitterness and the sugariness from the malt. Lovely drinking a beer like this and pretending summer is coming....

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. A hoppy saison indeed. The farmhouse works well with the typical grass of Sauvin. Lively carbonation on a sweet beer with a decent bitterness. Refreshingly light body, dry. Nice.

Bottle. Hazy gold. Lots of grape in the aroma with some peach and passionfruit. Earthy, winey taste. Plenty of funk and a great showcase for Nelson S hops. Nicely balanced between the yeast and hop flavours. Dry, peppery finish. Lovely.

500ml bottle. Pours a pale golden color partly cloudy with a frothy head. Tastes like what youd expect from a belgian beer with a slightly fruitier finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taster at Mikkeller Seoul. Very pale for a saison, and the sauvin hops dominate the aroma. The flavour is grassy and sweet, just like sauvin hops, but thereís a good background of funkiness too. This is a really well thought out beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at a tasting. Flavourful, juicy. High hoppiness marries well with the spicy saisony character. Winey, berries, light dried fruits, assertive saisony spices. Great beer, easy drinking. Does not feel thin despite being very well attenuated.
