Keg @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s hazy gold with a tiny white head. The aroma’s strong floral hops. Light juniper and hints of spicy ginger. A bit of pimms-soaked fruit salad. Light wheaty bite. The taste is full of fresh cucumber. Mint cordial. Fresh berry and herb. Mild fruity tang. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, I seem to like these cucumber beers. Cool stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at CBC, Clerkenwell. It pours a hazy pale straw colour with a large white head. Fine bubbles that last long. Aroma is stright saisony, with some grass and flowers, some barnyard and citrus notes. Taste is sweet-dry, nicely balanced, with the juniper adding a touch of woody and sweet component. Still quite dry and citrusy. Some band-aid. Cucumber is there in finish, as it warms up a bit. Overall, I expected a more markedly different beer, but this is a solid saison.

9th April 2013
Cloudy gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Mild minerals. Fresh dry cucumber. Brief floral note in the mid. Finishes dry with a fruity tangy vibe that must be the juniper I guess. Interesting beer but a bit dry.
