75cl bottle @ the Tenth Shrewsbury Bottle Share, Dec 14, courtesy of myself. Pours a hazy yellow with foamy head. Saison appearance continuing to the taste with spice and lemon citrus in good balance alongside some stone fruit and candi sugar. Pleasant, light and refreshing attempt at a Belgian beer.

750ml bottle thanks to trapped, shared at the holiday tasting
Clear golden with a big white head, some lacing. Aroma is musty and green apples. Taste is sweet caramel, dark fruit and toasted malts
Ok but I wouldn’t want any more than a few ounces. We had Local 1 & 2, I don’t understand the high ratings of either one.

750ml cork and caged bottle: split between five at the December 2014 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group Meeting. Thanks Paolo for bringing this. Pours a cloudy gold/yellow with a white head. The aroma was mini-citrus, yeasty and semi-sweet all in one basket. The taste an interesting mixture of saison type tanginess, earthiness and spicy hops with a sweet balance from somewhere. Different and interesting from start to finish.
