Tasted from cask at GBBF August 2011, absolutely wonderful despite not being settled and still a bit cloudy. Sweet malt balanced by a hint of sourness. Very moreish.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle at cgarvieuk’s. Pours a cloudy but bright yellow. Very nice aroma, orangey, sour, some nice saison funk. Taste doesn’t quite match up to the aroma, but is still very nice. Sour, grapefruity, other citrus. Not too complex, but nice.Quite full bodied, and this maybe damps some of the taste. Very dry finish. Exceptionally decent.
