Bottle from Plonk. A peach colour with slightest pink tinge to it, lively but fading head, aroma is fruity, strawberry/raspberry, saison yeast, quite sweet, also spicy and a bit sour. Quite good balance I thought. Nice.

Pinkish tinge on an orange body. Short head. Berries on the nose and the taste, comes across tart and drinkable, refreshing, medium body but pretty straightforward.

Really enjoyed this beer. It was tart, sour and refreshing nice flavours of berries but not over powering, artificial just complemented the beer nicely. Shame this came out in autumn it would have been a great summer drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ The Norfolk Hotel, Fremantle.
Hazy peach with a thickset, snow-white pad of foam that laces well. Sour but fresh aroma of berries, peaches, lemon zest and orange sherbet. Featherweight in body, tart and tight in taste with not a lot going on to be honest. Carbonation is sprightly giving it the overall feel of sparkling wine. Snappy yeast bite and tart fruit acids in the finish. Berry and peach ever present throughout. Dry for the length. A champagne of beers my partner quite liked, but for me it was one-dimensional.

Very good looking beer. Pretty interesting, Sweet with plenty of raspberry/ berry, that dominate the taste and nose however there is the standard saison spiceyness and sourness. Quiet enjoyed this, a nice surprise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle from Oak Barrel bottleshop, Sydney. There is a faint pinkish hue to the golden body of this beer that lies beneath a bubbly white head that lasts and clings to the glass. Rather obvious aromas of berries (raspberries mainly) on top of light malts and spicy hops and this is reflected on the tongue with a nice dry tart finish. Certainly not sickly syrupy sweet like so many fruit beers I have tasted. Palate is quite light and lively with a medium-light body for the ABV. Accurately described as a berry Saison.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Cookie. Very intense, sweet and sour. Aromas of berries, cereal, and hints of apple and caramel. Taste is sweet and tart, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, with a frothy head.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Just pink-tinged gold with a nearly white head that fades. Aroma of berries, apricots, pepper. Very smooth, lower carbonation than I’d like. A sweet melange of fat berries, a little dough, a lick of tartness towards a dryish finish with gentle spices and little bitterness. Nice fruit that dominates a bit much for me.
