Keg at Lyric @6.5%. It pours cloudy gold with a medium white head. The nose is dough, floral, juicy, straw, fiery ginger, muffin and some citrus. The taste is bitter, hay, doughy, floral, citrus peel, grapefruit, spice, resin, light alcohol sting, white grape skin and honeysuckle with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good depth of flavour. Well-rounded and very drinkable. One of BBFs very best. Nice work.

Keg @ Euston Tap. I’ve really been getting into my saisons recently and this hit the spot in a big way! Beautifully blended yeasty mouthfeel and just the right level of sweetness with an ever present fresh floral aroma. This is very nice indeed.
