3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy pale peach-gold pour with a 2 finger, super creamy off white head. Aroma is loaded with sweet stone fruit, citrus and sweet floral notes, light dusty sweet grain, a touch of pineapple and sharp fruity esters. Flavor is light toast, sweet cereal and seedy notes up front, followed by doughy yeast, sharp citrus and stone fruits, spicy hop notes, pepper, a little too much booziness and slightly bitter lemon-lime finish. Medium body with a slightly chalky, but lightly syrupy feel. Good 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.

Pours a lovely light golden colour with minimal white head.
Light fruity aroma, doesn't give a lot away. I approached this anxiously, unsure what to expect from a hopped out saison. It's safe to say I'm a fan. I'm not sure how true to style it is but it is damn tasty! Passionfruit and apricot, good carbonation, a brilliantly refreshing drop, perfect for a hot summer afternoon.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of pears, grapes, and flowers give way to peppery phenols and an earthy grounding. Taste brings in spicy phenols and sour grapes. Pours gold as a pilsner but with a larger, fluffier, white head. It feels light, dry and spritzy. Excellent saison.
