4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Strong floral and spicy aroma, pours a slightly hazy light straw with a huge white head. Lots of earthy notes, with a touch of grape notes. Light in body, with a nice effervescence to lift flavors off of the palate. This is a very good Saison, and Iíll be trying to get more of this.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
