A brew that celebrates the best of summer and has a robust flavour to match. Huge green hop additions of East Kent Goldings, fresh from Syndale hop gardens, give a powerful punch of the true flavours and aromas of the summer season. Belgian saison yeast adds earthy sweetness and toffied-banana to give some complexity and poise, finished with a high bitterness from all of those lovely hops. Heed this; this is our biggest, hoppiest beer of the summer, consider this a warning.

Alexanderdahl (131) - DENMARK - APR 13, 2015
Tap at foundrys brewpub. Fresh, wheat nose with a bit of soapy sourness. Taste is surprisingly thin and watery. Quite nicely bitter, but the hops sadly doesn’t stand a chance of lifting the beer, thin as it feels. A bit of wheat sweetness, slight sourness and lots of bitterness, but thats about it.. I really hoped for better..

Cask @ The Foundry. Unclear orange body with a nice off-white head. Pleasant aroma of hay, flowers and perfume. Flavor is mild malty, spicy, fruity and floral. Fine balanced body with a delicate aftertaste leaving just enough bitterness at the end. A truly fine and style appropriate Saison.

Theydon_Bois (17265) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO tasting, thanks to Ian, 30/12/12. Hazed light golden with a thin white film and frothy white bubbles at the extremeties. Nose is farmy, soured fruits, grass, spice, touch of apricot and orange, quite acrid - great ! Taste follows, bitter and soured fruits, apple, apricots, orange, grassy, farmy, funky. Medium in body with soft carbonation lending towards a bitter dry finish. A most decent saison, probably the best I recall drinking from a UK brewer !
