COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of three Gin barrels of 14 month aged Saison. We added orange peel in barrel to highlight the beautiful citrus character from the wild fermentation, then subtly dry hopped at blending with floral and fruit forward northwest hops. Big orange and spicy botanical aromas and flavors.

Tasting at Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Colin for this one. Hazy gold - orange beer, residual white head. Palate is light and semi dry and finely crisp. Light sourness with nice zippy orange and a little lemon. Pinch of sherbet. Trace of gin adds colour. Light crisp finish. Pretty drinkable.

Leighton (12272) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Colin. Pours murky gold with minimal head. The nose holds lots of tart citrus, tangerine, herbs. Light sweet flavor with some rindy bitterness, tart lemons, moderate acidity, citric bite. Light bodied with spritz you carbonation. Clean and tart on the finish, some mandarin orange, tangerine, peel. Very nice.

Scopey (7675) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours murky orange with quickly dissipating head. The nose is musty, barnyard, earth, bitter-orange, must, touch of grapefruit rind, vanilla and light pepper notes. The taste is bitter-orange, sour, orange juice, grapefruit juice from concentrate, mild acidity, drying wood, light vanilla and some mouth-pucker with a drying finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Interesting stuff, but not my favourite from these guys.

hopscotch (9738) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle... Pours murky and straw-colored with a small, white, bubbly head. The nose is earthy, pungent, grapefruity and bready. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is quite tart and fruity with notes of orange peel and pith. Finishes tart and bready with a hint of crusty bitterness.

tectactoe (2519) - Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle: Dense, burnt sunshine-orange body, opaque with an off-white head that literally diffuses into nothing in seconds. Aroma smells like a Screwdriver made with Gin. Big-time orange juice aroma, gin, spruce, light pine needles, mild earthy & leafy hop notes, a touch of spicy oak, & some herbal overtones throughout. Flavor has a nicely tart orange juice punch out of the gate. Light farmhouse hay & wood character. Gin in present, but light enough to not steal the show. Mild grassy, earthy, herbal tones. Faint pine. Little bits of grapefruit flesh & grapefruit peel, too. Orange juice & dry oak finish. Absolutely awesome stuff.

beechner224 (792) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle from little bro. Pours a cloudy as hell orange. Aroma is tart, citrus, and get the gin. Taste Is fun forward, with a lite citrus note. Rely easy drinker. Dry, quenching, yum.

Stine (1638) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Beautiful blending of dry hopped herbal and trebly clementine fruit notes with dry must, clean acids and subtle malt construction. Kumquat, apricot, and clementine extreme; hard to find where acids end and hop oils begin; superb.

50belair (2525) - Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Mild orange and liquor aromas. Starts off nice with tart citrus highlights and ends in a gin bomb. Good body and mouthfeel.

biggsbowler (394) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle - pours golden. Nice citrus smell. The taste starts nice with some oranges and tangerines. But then the after taste is bang in your fast. The gin just hits you in the fast and not in the good way.
