3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Pours an attractive orangey brown with a nicely proportioned head and frantic bubbles. The nose has something in between grapefruit, earthiness and toffee. The taste has more of the same with the grapefruit and farmyard character dominating. The palate is great - lovely medium to full structure with a big creamy and tangy middle section texture and a refreshing but elegant finish. Overall, lovely beer.

Strong sweetish aroma, notes of saison yeast, fruit and marmalade, hints of mild spices and spruce. The carbonation seems about right. The flavour is medium sweet and hoppy (fruit and spruce) throughout, but the bitterness is not overdone. Stands forth as a very well balanced and enoyable beer.
