COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style is a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing.

Poured from 12 oz bottle, courtesy of SamGamgee. Light golden - yellow with a nice sized white head. Nose is somewhat complex; lots of stuff going on there, lemon, white wine, pepper, mixed in with that Belgian earthiness. Taste is spicy and bitter, a nice blend with a kind of abrupt finish. Overall a great interpretation of this style.

Keg at Brewdog Camden. Pale yellow, still, clear, small foamy white head. Aroma is pungent fruits on the turn, yeasty, passionfruit, background spice. Body is medium, soft carbonation, smooth. Taste is bready, caramel, spice, some light citrus. Dry, musty, yeasty finish with some booze showing up. Overall, itís quite nice but I was hoping for something more interesting.

Bottle from Brewdog AGM 2015. Enjoyed in allmyvinylís back garden. Pours a golden haze. Nice creamy head. Citra hop and Saison yeast aroma. Taste is a perfect balance of hop, saison yeast and malt; with the sugars just right. Perfectly pitched. Really enjoyed this.

650ml bottle from Brewdog Agm, shared with jeevan. Pours clear golden, light haze, thick white head. Aromas of lemon, grapefruit, saison yeast character. Taste is more citrus and bready yeast. Refreshing, bitter finish.

Nocturne (1172) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2015
Tap at BrewDog Manchester. Hazy golden shade. Thin white head. Nose is banana, lemon, slight tropical pineapple hop. Taste is similar. Bit grassy with white grape. Not bad, but something about it seems really rudimentary when compared to some of the complexities this style can offer. Some of the Firestone beers that have landed recently seem far from fresh and maybe this suffers there too.

With Z, pours a hazy light golden color with a nice white ephemeral head. Nose is yeast, cloves and spices. Taste is lemony, grassy with come barnyard funk! Finishes on lemony, banana and cloves with a dry finish. Very refreshing and drinkable. A nice saison from the boys in Paso Rables !! Quaff Score 8 / 10
