Fin (9213) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
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
