3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours with big white head and smells of sweet citrus fruit. Tastes fairly thin and doesn't have much of a flavor profile. Kind of bummed with this one because I love the green flash barleywine

Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with lots of bubbles and a large lasting fizzy white head. Lovely aroma is spicy, yeasty and herbal along with some citrus fruit and bready malt. Flavour is herbal, spicy and yeasty along with some citrus -- easy to drink and tasty. Average to medium bodied. A very good Saison!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours golden with a nice head. The nose has the expected farmyard and green hoppy/apple notes. There’s more of the same on the taste. So, it’s typical saison but perhaps it’s a little low on alcohol to have the balance I’d prefer. I think the sour yeast and bitter hops combination is a little too much. It could do with just a little sweetness. Overall, solid but not one I’ll choose to have again.

Light and refreshing, this Saison spicy overtone to it.
