Bottle and keg.

Smooth, juicy and complex. The fresh lemon peel and Wai-iti hops from New Zealand give this beer a long lemon-flavoured finish.

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle from London Beer Lab. Hazy straw colour with a large white head. Smell is all Belgian yeast- that Leffe honey roast ham thing. This is less apparent in the flavour- itís replaced with a light sweetness, some white pepper, a hint of lemon peel and a moderately dry finish. Itís quite refreshing but somewhat on the light side flavourwise. Overall just ok- expected better from this brewery.

bastarda (439) - Freiburg, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2016
kindly shared by impuritylaw@pre-BKL-tasting, thanks a lot! this is a nice, refreshing, quite simple Saison, with its lightly sour nose and some hints of lemons, grass and almonds and its almond, marzipan, pepper dry taste. Only Iím not so sure of its extra ingredients as for me itís well imaginable that without them this Saison would taste exactly the same.

bartlebier (3499) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2016
33cl bb02/2016 Shared by impuritylaw at bastardaís pre-BKL tasting. Aroma of a BWeisse sour mash, wheyish wheats and a whiff of white pepper/coriander seed spice. Quite on-point saison dry and bitter, the lemon (peel) impressively dialed down to let the saison yeast strain shine. Cuddles up gently to Dupont peppers, adding Moroccan lemons before a bitter grassy, lip-smackingly dry finish.

hohops (821) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle. Appearance is golden, fizzy, a pure white head which lasts throughout. Delicate aroma of lemons, floral notes, hops, slightly lambic. Taste- the lemon is most prominent, backed up by the hops, with a creamy malty quality in the background. Very well crafted.
