Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Quite spicy and herbal. Just a bit too sweet to be really good. Drinkable stuff as it is.

Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate spice, citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium pepper sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting spice beer.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottled. Poured apple juice yellow with a short, spotty white head. The aroma picked up bright cloves, lemon rind, and floral notes over a bready base.. too skewed toward the lemon stuff. The flavor found bright lemon and black pepper throughout.. some cloves and floral notes too, but the lemon and pepper dominated.. finished very peppery over a touch of honey and bready malt. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. sharp and a bit unbalanced.. not a very good saison.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Very nice aroma and taste of coriander and citrus. Yummy.

DrSilverworm (6818) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2012
1 pint bottle. Hazy yellow color. Minimal white head. Nice, light crisp carbonation. Some lace. Drier texture. Very nice spicy-fresh citrus-peel clove aroma. Nice zesty sweet and spice taste. Definitely one of the better Hinterland beers that I’ve tried (along with the Luna Coffee). Solid ale, great to enjoy with a small baked sandwich.

8/11/12. GTMW. Dark golden pour, lightly hazy, with a fluffy off-white head. Light citrus, spice, and esters on the aroma. More citrus, especially lemon, on the flavor with some pales malts and spicy Belgian yeast. Not bad.
