3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Bir&Fud, Rome.
A very interesting "forest floor" and rose petal aroma (coming from Warrior hops, apparently) and then a complex bitter, malty and deliciously hoppy taste with lots of bitterness and fruity hop. Another lovely Del Borgo beer, but Iíd say itís more of an APA than a Saison?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 750ml bottle on 23/2/2015. Pours a slightly cloudy light golden with a big bright white head. Has a light but sharp aroma of citrus and yeast. The flavour features bready malt, sweet and sour citrus (lemon, orange), honey and herbal flavours. The bitterness is a touch tart and dry, making it very refreshing overall. Has an almost creamy palate and average carbonation. There is a real subtlety to this that I wasnít really expecting. Itís like a creamy pale ale crossed with a saison built to smash over a session. Quite pleasant indeed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Piccadilly. I concur with everything EdKing said in his review, except I didnít get the funk or barley husk. Itís an excellent pale ale though. Yeast and orange citrus fruits on the aroma. Sherberty hops in a firmish pale malt palate. Good bitterness on the finish balanced by an orange sweetness. Taut, dry and austere. I mean I love it. Itís like the homebrew I wish I could brew. My kind of pale ale, yeast character, citrus fruits, and dry austerity. Wonderful. A definite rebuy.

Bottle. Not bad but nothing special. Maybe the bottle was a bit old by the time I had it, but I prefer some of their other saisonís.
