3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours hazy brown, thin tan head. Aromas of raspberry and roast. Light spice. Taste is more of the same, light tart sourness. Not bad, but lacking a little something.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light opaque brown, frothy lasting greyish white head. Sugary sorbet raspberry and soft roast. Frilly raspberry, chewy jam and overdone toast. Dark malts adds a decadent buffer rather than this being quenching and smashable. However, really drops off towards the finish, dry and tangy.

Bottle from Whistlestop, Saltburn. Deep red colour with a small tan head. Plenty of sour raspberry flavour, but still maintains the saison character. Light and refreshing, though perhaps a little on the thin side. Didn’t really get the ginger. Nice.
