Very hazy amber beer, little white head. Palate is light and crisp and semi dry. Semi sweet malt, typical Saison - light herby tang. Light banana ester. Whisper of caramel. Light finish. Not bad, refreshing and clean.

Had this at home Wednesday 4th December 2013 purchased from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon recently Pours hazy gold edging towards light amber with a white head. The aroma is very fresh it literally tickles your nose, clean, spicy and with a nice yeastiness. Tastes lovely, well rounded with yeast forward flavour. A little warmth from the alcohol. This is a really, really, lovely Saison. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 4.0
