Cask at GBBF 2012, London. Pours hazy, yellow-gold with a monstruous, white foam head. Nose of doughy yeast, lemon zest and white bread. Light to medium sweet flavor with doughy malts, odd smoe, some minerals and grains. Light bodied with average, smooth carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with toasty dough and faint, dry yeast. Not bad, kind of average.

Cloudy golden color with a white head. Strong green pepper character to the nose. Mild lemon zest, sweet bread, and a lot of yeast. A fairly strong floral quality and some grass notes. A bit lemony on the palate and fairly grassy as well. Some sweet bread, the same pepper skin, and some floral hops. A light bitterness on the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer left me wanting a lot more. Very light not enough yeast or depth to palate, it had some minor grassy notes, but not enough. Went down easy, but without much character.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bottleworks
Pale pour, fluffy head. Light saison spiciness to the aroma, couple with something like honeysuckle (which I suppose is the elderflower). Flavor is gently sweet, honeyed, not the least cloying with this late, late Saaz-like whisp of hop bitterness. Spot on mouthfeel, light and exceptionally drinkable without being watery in the least, intermediate carbonation never pushes too hard. I really like this beer--to think that one could have this instead of your classic American lawnmower beers! Brilliant.

750, capped. Pours a murky pale amber with a gigantic fluffy white head. Appealing mildly spicy nose. Flabby lightish body with sluggish carb. Not much happening on the mid palate. Starts out pretty promisingly, but gets a little sideways.
