3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at Herr Schmitt’s gaff. Thanks Paul. Clouded pineapple juice looking pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is nice earthy saison esters with nice horse funk. Flavour is nice fruits pineapple, tangy orange and earthy spicey saison yeast. Solid bitterness lingers. Effervescent palate wheaty grainy. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Garbage Night II - London. Thanks to Paul for this one. Mild gusher! Pours murky yellow-gold with a huge, billowing white head. Sugary pale bread in the aroma, some dough, esters, bubblegum. Medium sweet flavor with prominent Belgian yeast character, sugary dough, slight lemony notes, faint bitter straw. Medium bodied with lively, massaging carbonation. Sweet finish with minimal alcohol presence, some perfume, florals, faint grass, more doughy malts. Not bad at all.

Bottle from Glug, Newcastle. Gusher! It pours hazy golden-orange with a thick white head. The nose is doughy, fruity, orange, tangerine, sherbet, orange squash and light urine. The taste is doughy, crisp, orange squash, icing sugar, grapefruit, light booze, sherbet, hay and light bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Carb is a bit high, but it’s pretty nice anyhow.
