3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Yellow, slight hazy. Very nice nose: sweet hay, pale malts and some yeasty goodery. Lime light fruity hops. Feels really inviting, like a well fresh spiced wit. Body is smooth, somewhat dry. A bit of burned malts, but otherwise quite nice. A nice beer Something between a wit and a saison. Really spicy awesome nose. But a bit dull in flavour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330 ml). Extra from kbudd19, thanks! Clear bright golden with a medium fully lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is spicy (mainly pepper and coriander) with floral notes, malt and light citrus notes. Taste is slightly sweet with a lot of spices at first (pepper, coriander, ginger) followed by yeast, malt and an interesting citrusy finish. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Dry spicy finish. Good spicy beer. Could be a little more balanced, but it’s definitely enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Dean’s stickiest floor tasting. Slightly hazed blonde pour with a creamy, white head on top. Aroma is your typical saison, funky, grainy and horse blanket. Flavor is slightly buttery and a touch of infection. Could be the saison yeast used, or an infection. Slightly herbal aftertaste. Decent still.
