Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy gold beer, small suddy white head. Light semi dry palate. Sweetish malt, slightly wheaty in character. Sweetish orange, mild marmalade. Finishes semi dry with a little carbonated bite. Nice sweetish saison. Goes down easy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at CP&K. It pours hazy golden yellow, with thin foamy white lace and low carbonation. The nose is full of pepper, herbs, orange and yeast. The taste is tangy orange, lemon, bread, herbs, wood, pepper, yeast and grass, with a long peppery finish. An interesting beer, but there is too much pepper for my liking.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2011 Cask gravity, Derby Summer BF 2011. Misted gold/white halo. Banana, coriander, dusty perfumed aroma. Really good soft perfumed character. Nothing like an English as claimed. Thick and peppery, big fruity esters. No funk or horse or anything but then saison is a broad church, and this is a proper saison. Excellent.
