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.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Un biondo che va verso un dorato carico, parzialmente velato ma non per questo meno intrigante, sviluppa un bel cappello di schiuma, morbido, cremoso, alto due dita. Aroma dolce di malto chiaro e di lieviti fruttati, che includono mela, pera, banana, ulteriore dolcezza data dall’ananas, con note agrumate per finire con un pizzico di pepe. Al palato è leggera e soffice, ma di corpo, rimane asciutta ma con un sacco di spezie; l’alcool passa quasi inosservato, ben nascosto nella maggior parte della beva. Questa caratteristica la rende facile da bere seppur i 9%, e quindi pericolosa; ma è una delizia con un sorprendente equilibrio, un palato liscio ed una leggera carbonatazione.

Bottle, 750mL. Home. A golden orange beer (brown orange opaque if you add yeast) with yellow hues at the bottom of my glass. Big white head, good retention. Great lacing. Aroma of biscuit, spices, prune, caramel. Medium sweet, light bitter. Medium voluptuous body, silky texture, good carbonation, sweet warming finish. Overall, gorgeous, silky, pleasant yeasty and fruity aroma. Something special.

Bottle from strait and narrow, Lincoln. Clear light Ale with a small frothy white head. Aroma is fruity with raisins and prune. Taste is subtly sweet and warm with alcohol. Carbonation is very tight and frothy similar to champagne, body is quite thin. Unusual beer, think it’s intended to be shared! Oh well, nevermind!
