Bottle shared at Paul’s B-Day Beer gathering, CPK, London. Pours hazy gold with a big, fluffy white head. Nose is impressively light, restrained and airy, with notes of peaches, apricot and wheat. Has a surprisingly nice flavor with some wheat notes, light apricots and some mild grassy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Mild dryness to finish, some wheat, grassy hops, apricot and lemon. Highly reminiscent of a saison, and quite good for a UK saison at that. I know this is a very rare beer and most people won’t get to try it; to these folks, I’m sorry.
