COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg: Regular. Also available in bottle.
Rhubarb Saison
Brewed with renowned writer, Melissa Cole, author of bestseller "Let Me Tell You About Beer". We have used world famous Yorkshire rhubarb to add a hint of sourness. There is earthy spice from the Saison yeast, and fresh vanilla to bring out the sweet notes from a blend of Noble Central European hops. A rich golden colour, this naturally hazy Saison is truly a world beer, refreshing on the palate, with a long, satisfying bittersweet finish. Due to popular demand, Siberia will now join our permanent list in bottle and keg. Siberia is now exported and available in the US

A pale golden beer which remains quite cloudy after it’s been poured and holds a thin head. A mild, sweet smell which I assume was of rhubarb while the flavour is fairly mild but quite distinctive all the same. For both taste and strength it’s one I’d have a few of over an afternoon rather than get stuck into for an evening. Very nice though.

Ferris (3909) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Draft - Toast and jam. Clearish gold with a nice white head. Banana and light nondescript fruit tartness. I get some lacto creaminess and pale malts. Not enough oomph in this.

Niall73 (1696) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Tap at Mother Kelly's. Pours a gold colour with a white head. Slightly dusty, dry aroma with a little caramel. Light body, medium carbonation. A little lemon, some berries, a hint of butterscotch... Just OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Keg at Mother Kelly’s. It pours clear golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, fruity, red berry, rhubarb, jam and candy. The taste is crisp, bitter, creamy, soft fruits, berry, light candy and grain with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Nice soft fruits. Pretty nice.

Nocturne (775) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Keg at The Beagle, Chorlton. Clear vivid golden shade with a thin white cap. Opens up with honeyed malt and white grape sharpness. Can just about sense the rhubarb in the depths. Body is robust and carbonation quite high. Dry finish. Quite a classy beer, but not so much in line with what I’d expect of a saison.

Bottle from bier huis, ossett. Vivid amber ale it a reasonable white head. Vinegar and grass on the nose. A lot milder when tasted, still slightly sour but sweet and mild bitterness too. Not getting much rhubarb but still like it. Mild carbonation, nice medium body.
