minutemat (3274) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
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.

Hermod (5153) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
50cl bottle from Alesbymail. Bb 23/04/14. Hazy golden, frothy lasting white head. Love the aroma; citrus peel, yeast, mild sourness, earthy notes. Flavor is citrus, hops, floral notes, wheat. Finish is dry, citrus/lime lingers with some sour notes in the back. Got me thinkin of Nögne/Bridge Road india saison. Excellent.
