Some of the most impressive head formation I’ve seen in a beer in quite a while, though it could well be down to my new dishwasher. Lovely fresh Galaxy-style hoppiness with some weird edges lurking underneath which seems to be par for the course with these emerging Aus varieties. Quite a creamy mouthfeel, but cut well by bitterness. Very drinkable. Not much saison character about it for mine, but a very nice showcase for Aus hops, which Bridge Road does really well.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 13, 2012
Bottle. I like how the yeast is dominant on the nose, whereas the hops play a bigger part in the mouth. A pretty nice combination of the styles, combining to make a vinous palate. Works with summer like a fine Riesling.

berlinoise2go (608) - NORWAY - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Huge, white, fluffy head, settles as an uneven layer with some lacing. Slightly hazy, pale golden/amber colour. The aroma clearly reflects both the IPA and saison character - lots of citrussy hops on top of a fruity/estery Belgian yeast base. A bit of almond as well. Medium body, average carbonation. Semisweet, juicy taste upfront, balanced by a solid hop bitterness - then the bitterness takes over, leaving quite an astringent finish. An interesting brew, but I prefer the styles separated.

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2012
Light citrus hop nose. Cloudy gold color. Smooth, pine snd lemon flavor with clean and tasty malts. Not a deep or complex saison character but nice. Very drinkable. Hops work nicely.

Bottle- a friend gave this to me and so glad he did. A very good beer. A good balance of malt and hops, with a refreshing finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
