Keg. A clear, effervescent copper-Amber with a somewhat lasting and lacing, one finger off-White to beige head. A herbal nose of cloves, basil and spice. Fresh and smashable with crisp, grassy and pithy hops complementing a base of spicy malt. Bready malt and yeast linger into the finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation ending with moderate intensity and length.

My favourite Garage Project beer. A rich saison flavour, slightly tart and a faint taste of berry. Has a nice weight to it as well, medium bodied. Like nothing else I have ever tasted. Garage Project are one of a few breweries, that I think I could pick their beers out of a blind tasting because they are so unique.

Pours a golden amber with a foamy off white head. Nose is spicy noble hops, a little bready, a little banana. Flavor is lots of sherbety lemon, a little dough, honey sweetness, dry finish with banana, herbs, crackers. Really refreshing and interesting beer. Medium to light body. Low carbonation. I really like this, itís got great refreshing flavors. Lovely beer.

Archive15.9.15 from the cold room. 650ml bottle bb 9.3.2016 Very hazy orange, lowish carbonation, initial generous white head disappears to not much. Zesty citrus,
just enough funky barnyard yeast, fresh home made bread browned on top comes to mind, really good version of this style and very much enjoyed.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with no head. Delicate spicy yeast phenols very much of Belgian character. Light, refreshing but spicy flavours and a dry finish. Spritzy carbonation and light body. Good table beer with subtle character.

Complex, light, delicate, alluring. Another fine concept beer from some new masters. (Able to only communicate experience from devouring a 650mm bottle, doubt the experience would be the same from a can or tap).

I have to agree with 3fourths (below) with his deScription of this beer, although I do disagree in terms of this beer being a ídudí. Itís not my cup of tea, but it didnít end up stinking up my drains, either, I easily managed to pour it all into my guts.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Can from the brewery. Apple sauce, browned bananas, metal and plastic pretty much define the aroma, no true hop or malt presence to be found at all, and the yeast imparts a silt and milk powder staleness. The browned / rotting fruit flavor and aroma are off-putting, and while the malt texture is somewhat soft and the carbonation fine the flavor is so god-awful I canít take more than a few sips. Low bitterness, medium sweetness, low acidity. I canít even guess if this is supposed to be like this, itís "fruity" but doesnít even come close to Saison. No phenols, no esters, amber malt, rotting banana and apple? I donít get it. The only dud from what I had from these guys in Wellington.
