imdownthepub (12933) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. There was a distinct boiled vegetable note to this, reasonably bitter, sweetish then a leafy, earthy note. Not sure.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Cask handpull, The Felix Holt, Nuneaton, 17/12/13. Clear brass with a snowy white mousse lining the glass. Ripe satsuma, green peppery herb nose. Strong bitterness behind perfumed yeast, satsuma and perfumed coriander seed. Clinging bitterness with peppery alcohol hints. Not sure the bitterness fits the perfume. Good, although more a generic spiced Belgian blonde with an extra tweak of hop than a saison.

Fin (9367) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Cask, handpump The Penny Black, JDW Bicester, Saturday 7th December 2013 Pours warm amber with thin white head, a little soapy, I even pick up a little radox, pine maybe showing. Not sure I get the pumpkin but this is truly gorgeous stuff. Excellent beer, quite thick in mouth, bitterness really hangs in there, bit dry at end and lengthy bitterness. Very nice, not sure that it is that Saisony but it’s good nonetheless. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

jjsint (2186) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Cask @ Railway Inn (JDW), Rushden. Dark gold, slightly hazy. Bit of head, heavy lacing. Fruity, toffee and yeasty aroma Amazing taste: extreme bitterness with a squash-like (pumpkin?) flavour, finish too bitter but aftertaste is lovely and yeasty. Gets better and better over the course of the pint.
